Winter adds that extra touch of magic to most things – shooting stars become Santa’s sleigh, snowflakes float to the earth like dancing angels, and a trip to Y Spa at Wyboston Lakes in Bedfordshire turns from relaxing to enchanting.
Imagine freezing air kissing your skin as you ease deeper and deeper into a pool of warm bliss. If you’re lucky, you’ll look up to see stars (or Santa) as the bubbles around you relieve tension. Body jets are not only great for an extra level of massage, but also seem to clear out a corner of the 11-metre hydrotherapy pool (top tip on busy days!).
Whether you spend the day and have lunch included, or have a few hours’ visit with or without afternoon tea, there’s ample time to sweat it out in the steam rooms and saunas on offer (chilling in the Cool Zone showers or at the Frost Wall in between) before relaxing on the water beds (two available) or in the sleep room. It might seem silly to pay to lie in bed, but I can’t imagine recreating the same level of tranquility at home. And Y Not book a treatment – such as a Neom experience to help with sleep, stress, energy levels and mood – to complete your time of indulgence?
So, why Y Spa? The staff are exceptional, the food glorious and the experience, especially in the wonderful English winter, simply magical.
