Good Spa Guide 2017 awards

The annual Good Spa Guide Awards – in association with Spabreaks.com – took place on 14th November 2017 during a gala dinner at Spa Life, a conference for spa professionals.

The Reader’s Choice National Awards were voted for by spa lovers across the UK. The Regional Awards went to the most highly rated spas in each area based on The Spa Spies’ reviews, bubble ratings and audits.

At the red-carpet event, the elated winners of each category went onstage to collect their elegant Good Spa Guide glass statuette based on our signature bubble design.

If you are lucky, you may have spotted a Good Spa Guide award proudly displayed at your local spa. But if you plan to make your next spa experience an award winning one, here are the 2017 winners and finalists. Congratulations to you all!
