As M Dordonville remarked in 1841 in his book Pilgrimages to the Spas, no small portion of those who come to Spa do so for pleasure, and not for health.
The modern resort spa is certainly the place for pleasure, and if you are reading this on the very day The Echo comes out, there is a specially pleasant offer tonight, Wednesday 7 December at the Byron at Byron spa from 5pm till 9pm.
At Ladies’ Night you’ll receive a prosecco on arrival, canapés throughout the evening and a 30-minute massage treatment, inner-health elixir from Beauty Chef, a VIP goodie bag and more discounts, and hear about their new treatments.
And, of course, you get to laze around in the spa facilities, including the sauna, the roman bath and the pool. Unlike at Spa, you don’t actually have to drink the pool water to get healthy; in fact you could celebrate your Byron healthiness with a cocktail on the deck after your treatment.
However, if you miss the night, don’t feel too disappointed as the spa is always there. In fact, locals are not only welcome to drop in at the spa, but also welcome to begin their day anytime with yoga on the deck surrounded by beautiful rainforest beside the infinity-edge pool.
