GUIDE FOR
HEN PARTIES

The ultimate spa guide for hen parties, with everything you need to enjoy the spa. Gossip in the Jacuzzi, get relaxed with a massage, and have a blast with you friends in the spa!

  • Hens + Spa = A Whole Lot of Fun

    Hen parties at the spa are becoming increasingly popular, what better place to relax, have a giggle with friends, enjoy a cheeky drink and pamper yourselves beautiful? Hen spa days typically include one treatment per person (although the bride may indulge in several treatments!), access to the spa facilities plus a meal. Choose a spa day for a pampering experience, or go all out and book a spa break with evening cocktails and star gazing in the Jacuzzi!
