About Nirvana Spa

Soak away your worries in some of the purest spa waters Britain has to offer


Pack your swimsuit – Nirvana Spa is all about the water. The Berkshire retreat boasts 15 different pools and spas, all filled with the spa’s own supply of pure spring water.


The Spa is famous for its range of flotation treatments, which are said to relax and restore tired bodies. The Celestial Room is situated underground, with a roof decorated to look like the night sky. Step into the warm water and gaze up at the ‘stars’ while you float around the pool.


If you’re looking for a more traditional spa experience, choose from a range of facials, massages, manicures and pedicures, as well as tailor made packages for mums to be and couples.


Or embrace the country ethos with a round of golf at the nearby Bearwood Lakes Golf Club, before returning to the Nirvana Spa for a ‘Gentleman’s
Tonic’ – a custom-made spa treatment which includes a therapeutic full body massage, plus a hot stone treatment.


This is one of the largest spas in the UK so it’s worth spending a bit of time exploring the premises. It can get very busy at weekends and during the holidays, so book your treatments ahead of time to make sure you aren’t disappointed.

  • TREAT YOURSELF:  To a double dose of wellness with Nirvana Spa’s unique ‘water massage’ – float in natural spa water filled with 60 tons of Dead Sea salt while a trained masseuse gives you a relaxing head massage.


  • PERFECT FOR:  An indulgent long weekend with all the trimmings – you don’t want to be rushing around here.

The Location
Nirvana Spa is a purpose built day spa located close to Wokingham, in Berkshire. Being well served by the M4 motorway, it’s easy to get to from most places.

The spa itself is tucked away along a country lane, helping to put the chaos of city life behind you from the moment you arrive, and there’s plenty of free parking on sitei if you do decide to drive.


First Impressions
The building itself is rather unprepossessing, being a single story brick building with nothing but the large windows to give away what’s inside. As soon as you walk in, you are straight into a carpeted reception area, furnished with comfortable sofas.

As a member, my guest and I were welcomed at the Member’s entrance, where my guest was signed in. This meant that we didn’t have any introduction to the facilities, however I believe that this is provided for day guests.

Luxurious white robes are provided to anyone booking treatments, or they can be hired for a small fee.

The changing rooms are large and have plenty of locker storage as well as hairdryers, and even GHDs, meaning that you needn’t be without the essentials.

The shower facilities are good, although the frosted glass between cubicles does make one feel rather self-conscious!

Being a purpose built day spa that is open for upward of 16 hours a day, the standards of cleanliness were very good. We didn’t actually see any cleaners/rotas at all throughout the day, however everything was spotlessly clean.


The Treaments
We had treatments booked for 10am, shortly after we arrived. The treatment area has had a facelift recently, and now offers a beautiful large, darkened, candle lit room where spa-goers can await their treatment.

We had opted for the hour-long hot stone massage, at £65. The treatment itself was lovely- very relaxing and in a lovely treatment room. The therapist was very competent, and friendly, without being too chatty. Upon completion of the treatment, we enjoyed herbal tea whilst relaxing on one the heated loungers in the treatment waiting area. A really nice touch and something that sets you up for the rest of the day.


The Facilities:
Feeling thoroughly blissed out, we spent the rest of the day moving around the spa enjoying all that it had to offer. In my eyes, the best feature of Nirvana has to be the enormous hydrotherapy pool, offering jets to target every area of the body in a Roman-esque bathing room.

We also visited the steam rooms (there are several, all offering different aromas and experiences), braved the ice scrub (not nearly as bad as expected), and chilled out in the Tepidarium- a room full of heated ceramic loungers and silence (aside from the odd snore!).

Because we were lucky enough to be experiencing one of the warmer days of the late Summer, we also spent a lot of time outside, both in the hot tubs dotted around, and sunbathing next to the heated outdoor pool.


Food & Drink
In terms of the food and drink offerings, the restaurant (a large orangery with additional seating outside), offers a range of sandwiches, salads, pasta dishes and main meals. There is also a very impressive buffet, featuring a range of hot and cold items, and even has a gluten free section.

Nirvana is not a health spa, so wines, beers, cakes and puddings are readily available should you fancy a little extra indulgence without being scorned upon.

Portion sizes are reasonable, although the salad was a little small, more of a fillet of salmon with a garnish than a salad. We felt that the prices were fair, given that they have a captive audience, and paid around £10 for a pasta main course.


The Verdict
All in all, Nirvana remains my favourite spa of all the ones that I have visited. You genuinely feel like you have escaped the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and, being open until at least 10pm every night, you can enjoy over 12 hours of non stop relaxation.

The Nirvana staff are warm and welcoming, the facilities are second to none, and the treatments are of a high quality. It is not a cheap day out, but it is an indulgence, and one that I feel is worth every penny.

The Spa Critic

Amazing spa

Nirvana has a reputation and it definitely lived up to it. If you can go with an existing member you'll find the prices to be a lot cheaper and you'll also get discounts if you're able to go on a weekday evening. I didn't try out the fitness facilities but tried just about everything else. The heated relaxation beds are perfect if you just want to get away from it all and the large swimming/hydrotherapy pools meant it didn't feel overcrowded around the rest of the spa. Their signature treatment is the Celestial Flotation - essentially you float around the pool gazing up at stars on the ceiling. Definitely worth the cost to try as it's like nothing else
