Goodwood Spa Experience
This weekend I was lucky enough to receive a belated Christmas present in the form of a Spa Day consisting of an hour and a half Elemis facial at the Goodwood Luxury Spa in West Sussex and use of the spa facilities.
The Spa day includes full access to the gym and pool, making for the ultimate relaxing experience.
The treatment rooms themselves are situated next to the pool so you can go straight from relaxing by the jacuzzi into the treatment room with minimal walking around the hotel in your dressing gown/towel combo (never a good look).
The waiting rooms have an array of little treats to help yourself to include some healthy snacks – dried fruit, nuts and other munchies as well as fruit infused water and plenty of magazines to occupy any time spent waiting for your treatment.
Just as I was getting comfortable with a magazine it was time for my treatment and I was led into a side room. The rooms are clean, tidy and simply – just what you would want and expect from a luxury beauty experience. There is nothing worse than being brought into a grubby or even worse filthy or marked treatment room and sitting there wondering whether the treatment you’re about to receive will be a reflection of it – in my experience, it often is!
What followed was an hour and a half of real relaxation. The facial included a lovely foot massage as well as arm and head massage.
As I have combination skin, the beautician used a bespoke combination of elemis products to suit my skin’s needs.
Afterwards my skin felt and looked visibly softer and clearer. I was given some Elemis ‘recovery capsules’ to take home with me – one to apply at night infused with lavender and the other for the morning time – such a nice treat.
It’s an experience I can’t wait to repeat and I would recommend to anyone looking for a country retreat.
