Our Spa Spy Review

First impressions

Wyboston Lakes is a large leisure and business complex, a short taxi ride from St. Neots train station.

We were lucky enough to stay in the large Wyboston Suite.

What's on offer?

The spa wing of the building is accessed directly from the hotel’s main reception as is the entrance to the spa café.

The changing rooms are huge with your own pin-code lockers, vanity stations, towel drops, toilets and showers. There is “Slipper Parking”- to preserve your slippers- as you enter the Y Spa Thermal Experience where there are nine different steam and sauna variations to try.

‘Softy’ is a gentle sauna heated to around 60 degrees, with three levels of smooth pale wooden seating, and a large glass window overlooking the pool. ‘Steamy’ is the dark, iridescent-tiled steam room, heated to 42 degrees. ‘Salty’ is in an all white room with minimalist seating. Colour changing lights under the seats gave the room its ambience. Ceiling-mounted salt steam jets let out fantastic blasts of timed, salty-steam jets.

An indoor walkway guides you straight into the water through some transparent plastic flaps. Outdoors is an 11 metre hydrotherapy pool, a traditional Scandinavian-style Kelo sauna and spa garden.

The hot Kelo sauna, built from 100-year old logs, has a glorious woody aroma and views out across the spa garden through a vast glass window. The Kelo sauna is also called ’ Some like it hot!’ and is the hottest of Y Spa’s facilities, heated to 85 degrees.

The hydrotherapy pool has two bubble bed sofas, an individual bubbling station, a body jet, and a couple of swan pipes for pummelling your neck and shoulder muscles.

The spa garden is an area for fun and relaxation. There’s a flickering fire built in to the wall and a comfy outdoor chairs in front.

Y Spa has a dedicated pre-treatment lounge where you can quietly relax in your robe. A wall mounted realistic fire-effect TV  gives you a sense of being cosy.

‘The Big Sleep’, is a silent area to slumber. A row of beds covered with luxurious blankets and cushions run along one wall. ‘Time out’ is another relaxation area next to The Big Sleep. Retro Pod-like seats allow for guests to swivel themselves around to be sociable with their spa partners, or to swivel away and face nobody, for time alone. There were three waterbeds in a curtained off area although these are popular and often being used during busier periods.

Tell us about the treatments

I had the Murad Resurgence Facial (60 minutes)
Leeanne, my therapist, talked to me about my skin concerns, what products I use, and when I last had a facial. The treatment couch was not heated but I was perfectly snug under a particularly thick duvet. The treatment commenced with Leeanne gently rocking my body. She then manipulated my feet by pushing them towards and away from me. Mellow spa music played in the background.

Leeanne placed cool cotton pads over my eyes and then applied a frothy cleanser that produced a tiny tingle. Once removed, my therapist swept a cool toner, also complete with a tingling sensation. I then received a relaxing face massage with a massage cream. Leeanne told me that it couldn’t be bought and was only for professional use.

Next she applied a slick of lip balm and then proceeded to paint on a peel mask with a very soft brush. After a few minutes the mask was removed with soothing warm flannels. Leeanne then applied a hydration sensitive skin mask and gave me a flowing hand and forearm massage. The treatment finished with moisturiser being massaged in to my face. I felt fresh and looked noticeably radiant.

My partner and I shared an Elemis Balance Me Rasul treatment (£55, 50 minutes)
The Rasul room was situated just past the manicure and pedicure stations. The room contained two parallel treatment couches and a glass fronted dual shower/steam room.

We both got changed into our respective spa thong and boxer shorts and lay on adjacent treatment couches. Our therapist, Leeanne rubbed Tranquil Touch Body Scrub over my whole body, whilst my partner lay relaxing under a blanket.  I then showered off with a gorgeous scented Tranquil Touch Shower Cream, whilst my partner received his body scrub. This alternating process was repeated throughout the treatment.

Next I was massaged with de-stress massage oil followed by Skin Nourishing milk. We then sat and steamed for around 10-15 minutes and before returning to our couches. Finally we were slathered in a lovely layer of body lotion and our fun treatment was finished. This spa experience is definitely one to be shared with a close loved one or friend who you are at ease undressing in the same room.

Food facts

The spa café is a bright contemporary space with fish tanks built into the wall. It serves refreshments and afternoon tea and there was a selection of cakes on display.

If you are at Y Spa on a full spa day or break, then lunches and dinners are served in the hotel’s Waterfront Restaurant. The buffet lunch was freshly prepared and really tasty. Those on a spa day all ate at the same time, and we all dined comfortably in our spa gowns. In the evening we shared a meal of cote de beouf that was cooked perfectly.

We loved / We didn't love

We enjoyed the whole experience.

We loved the heat of the Kelo sauna and the views outside.

We loved the tasty, hearty food.

We loved the Murad facials too.

We were less keen on the pools of water that gathered in the centre of the floor of the thermal area.

Who do you think would like it?

Y Spa is perfect for those looking for fun in their spa day as well as those who want to try something different. The spa is large and can easily accommodate small groups of people.

What bubble rating did you give this spa?

We awarded Y Spa a Good Spa Guide Rating of Five Bubbles for it’s all round goodness. The spa is large and designed to allow a high volume of visitors without feeling overcrowded. Y Spa is a fun and sociable spa with plenty on offer to keep you occupied for a full spa day or break.

Single Spy visited in January 2014 and awarded it 5 Bubbles
