A spa package that includes overnight accommodation. Perfect for couples or groups, and to fully escape from the stresses of everyday life. We recommend:
Just for Him Three Night Break at Ragdale Hall (£501 each): Thermal spa and gym facilities, all meals included, with massage, facial, hand treatment, and mud wrap. Luxury spa-ing at its best!
A whole day spent at a spa. Spa days usually includes a treatment, use of full spa facilities, and a meal. Dad can indulge by himself if you feel he deserves some ‘me’ time, but spa days are also lovely opportunities to spend time together. We recommend:
Moroccan Father's Day Experience at Dolphin Square, London (£89): Treat your father to a 90-minute King Soloman Ritual with use of the steam and relaxation areas, tea and sweets, and if you bring a friend they can spa for half price!
Men's Experience at Norton House, Edinburgh (from £95): A 55-minute facial and a 55-minute deep tissue massage, as well as full use of the health club and spa facilities. Norton House also have a Father’s Day Spa Day for just £39-49, where your Dad can de-stress, ease aches and revive the senses with a massage, beer and use of the health club and spa facilities.
This involves spending only half a day at a spa. Half days usually include a treatment, use of all facilities, and a snack, lunch or afternoon tea. There is less time to chill out, but this is still a fun opportunity to relax. We recommend:
One in a Million at Rockliffe Hall (£99): Allow Dad some man-space in the spa, with English breakfast upon arrival, use of all gym and spa facilities, and a 60-minute treatment – enough to spoil him rotten and be treated like a King.
Just for Him offer at Thermae Bath Spa, Bath (£99): Enjoy a four-hour spa session, a massage and facial, and a lunch or dinner two tasty dishes with a non-alcoholic drink.
An evening spent at a spa, Twilight packages usually include the use of facilities, a treatment, and snacks. Advantages include: after-work hours for spa-ing during the week, less crowded facilities, often cheaper prices, and a more romantic setting if you're going as a couple. We recommend:
An Evening Escape at Garden Spa at The Bath Priory (from £49): Enjoy a 30-minute treatment, cocktail at the bar, and full use of spa facilities.
Cosy Candlelight at Moddershall Oaks, Staffordshire (£65): Relax in the spa, have a 25-minute treatment, and deli-nibbles with a glass of prosecco or beer.
For those who just want the benefits of treatment, without use of any gym, wet or thermal facilities. Great for Dads without much time to spare, or for ‘gift-givers’ on a budget. We recommend:
Men's Vitaman Stress Busting Back Treatment at Lucknam Hall, Wiltshire (£96): Dad can experience a treatment that uses Indigenous Australian ingredients.
Mens Revitaliser at the Runnymede-on-Thames, Surry (£65): A tension relieving back, feet and lower legs massage.
Gift vouchers are a great way of giving Dad a present but allowing him to choose the time. Many spas offer gift vouchers, either discounted from the spa's prices or specialised to your requirements. Check with your chosen spa for more information!
