We don’t know if it’s the brief spell of sunshine (please come back) or if this happens every March, but here at Wahanda we’ve come over a little summery this week. After a sneak peek of the warmer weather to come, we can’t stop thinking about ice cream, summer dresses and – above all – holidays. Are you wishing away the next few months and imagining yourself on a gorgeous, golden beach? Guess what, we’ve found just the place, and it’s home to this week’s Spa of the Week: The Spa at L'Horizon Hotel...
Situated overlooking the smooth sands and clear waters of Jersey's stunning St. Brelade’s Bay, L’Horizon Hotel was built as a private seaside villa in 1850. Now transformed into a 4-star hotel, this coastal retreat is home to one of the most magnificent sea views and finest spas in the Channel Islands. With state of the art facilities, an expert team and instant access to refreshing sea air, a trip to L’Horizon is all about escaping real life, forgetting that email you probably should have replied to, and relaxing.
Located just five minutes from Jersey airport, you might have to cross a bit of water to get here, but the hotel is only a 45-minute trip from either Heathrow or Gatwick Airport.
If you can tear yourself away from the stunning sea view, inside this lavish Victorian holiday home you will find a spa with facilities including a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, fully equipped gym and invigorating indoor sea salt swimming pool, which looks out onto the glorious bay.
Ideal for girly weekends, family breaks and hen dos (of the more sedate variety), the spa offers a range of indulgent and rejuvenating spa escapes. If you happen to be in the Jersey area, a spa day is the perfect way to while away a few hours by the sea without getting sand in your nooks and crannies.
Choose from a selection including a Special Occasion Spa Day including one treatment (back, neck and shoulder massage; mini facial; tired eye treatment or a file and polish for fingers or toes) plus a glass of Champagne and full use of spa facilities – which you can invite a friend to enjoy with you for free.
Or, if Champagne’s not your thing, the Afternoon Tea and Spa Day for two offers a treatment each, an indulgent tea (with real Jersey cream of course) and full use of spa facilities.
If Jersey is a little out of the way, but you’re tempted by the sights and spa of this stunning location, book an overnight spa break to make it worth your while. For example, the One Night Elegant Escape Spa Break, which includes an overnight stay in a double or twin room, the choice of two 25 minute treatments, full use of the club and spa facilities and a traditional breakfast the following morning. Don’t mind if we do.
All treatments at the spa are performed by the expert team using only the best products from names like Elemis and Jessica nail care.
Fancy a pre-summer break without breaking the bank? Put down your passport and head to the fair isle of Jersey for a spa escape with a difference.
