WITHOUT a doubt, I’ve never felt more relaxed then when I visited the Eden Spa at Down Hall Hotel, Hatfield Heath. Upon arrival, I was greeted with a warm welcome by the staff and felt completely at ease. The moment I stepped through the doors, all my problems melted away with the calming music, peaceful atmosphere and the smell of essential oils.
Inside the spa were four luxury treatment rooms. This included three single rooms and one double room, which is perfect for couples or friends to enjoy the experience together. I chose to have a personalised express facial, which was 25 minutes long and cost £42.
Before the treatment, I was asked my skin type (combination) and told the beauty therapist my main skin issues being that I struggle with dull skin. She then created the perfect concoction to help. The products used are ESPA natural skin and spa products for their facials and body treatments, which had my skin glowing and left a hydrating feel behind. They used a cleanser, exfoliator, and facemask, serum and even give you a head massage, which was lovely. If you ask me, it’s defiantly worth the money because the staff take their time.
After being told the importance of staying hydrated, I was given towels, a robe and slippers, and entered the wet room. Right in the middle of the room, there was a hydrotherapy pool maintained at 36 degrees to help against aches and pains. Located to the left was a steam room, which helps improve circulation through the body and relieves tension.
Also, there was a sauna, great for removing toxins in your body. On the left were relaxation beds, one of my favourite parts because they were so soft and comfortable. They were electric and you could lie in all different positions with calming music surrounding the room. The wet spa costs £20 for two hours and you must be 18 and over to use it.
Once finished, I went into the changing rooms and got ready to go home. My only issue was that the showers had frosted glass, so people could see you through it. This made me feel uncomfortable and I had to put my towel over the door.
Overall, my experience was amazing; the Eden Spa is a great place to visit! The ideal place to have some time away from our busy lives and treat our body. I will definitely be going back again.
