Reconnect with yourself or your other half at this English country retreat
It takes guts to describe yourself as “the finest spa in the South of England”, but then again, the Utopia Spa at Alexander House Hotel does have an awful lot going for it…
The hotel itself is like something out of a children’s book – all red brick, tall chimneys and perfectly manicured gardens. It’s the sort of place that makes you want to turn off your phone and lose yourself in its old English charm, while you take a few days off from modern life. And there’s no better place to start than the award-winning Utopia Spa.
The subterranean spa is beautifully decked out with Grecian-style columns, warm marble, and soft lighting, and it features an array of hydrotherapy pools, Jacuzzis, and monsoon showers, as well as 25 private treatment rooms.
The spa itself combines innovative electrical therapies (such as the popular ‘Need a Miracle’ treatment, which combines an AHA micro peel and brightening face mask to reduce fine lines and wrinkles) with a range of treatments inspired by the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda (try the nourishing Ananda cleansing ritual), as well as classic treatments such as Swedish massages, and male executive facials (‘Go Guy’).
An impressive range of treatments are also available for pregnant women, men, and couples – and with such a selection to choose from, you’re practically guaranteed to find a treatment that you like.
Utopia Spa is without a doubt a relaxing haven full of wonderful spa options. But is it the finest spa in the south of England? That’s for you to decide.
