Switch off and chill out in the UK's best spas for a relaxing break
For a spa setting and atmosphere that helps you quickly switch off, it's hard to beat The Scarlet - which is why it's taken the top spot for the second year running. With ocean views, luxury lantern-lit tented rooms, cocoon-like relaxation pods, a cosy chill-out room and log-fired outdoor hot tubs, we defy anyone not to leave The Scarlet Spa feeling utterly blissed out. What's more, instead of the hour-long treatments you'd usually find on a spa menu, the Ayurvedic-based 'journeys' here take up to four hours! The theory is that takes that long to make a lasting difference to your wellbeing. Makes sense to us.
Special treatment: Restore, £195, aims to soothe your mind and release anxieties with a full body Ayurvedic massage and the ancient warm oil pouring remedy, Shirodhara.
Our verdict: Scarlet has thought about everything; the views, chill-out areas and treatments are all amazing, plus, it follows eco-friendly practices like recyling water.
Prices: From £180 for two people sharing a 'Just Right' room with breakfast. Call 01637 861800 or visit scarlethotel.co.uk
