This is ‘me time’, with a star on top!
The hustle and bustle of festive gatherings will not suit everyone; for some people, Christmas is more a time for peaceful relaxation and getting away from it all. Luckily for them, Ribby Hall Village has the perfect solution. Couples and friends looking for an escape need look no further.
On the top of the hill, at the end of The Village’s main drive, sits The SPA Hotel, with its own ornamental lake and fountain, and unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside. The Hotel has been awarded Four Silver Stars from the AA and the spa facilities have consistently been awarded a Five Bubble rating by the Good Spa Guide, and it is the ideal location for a luxurious festive break away from it all.
Even just an afternoon here, for the ‘Winter Zen’ or ‘Twilight’ experience, will leave guests sumptuously rejuvenated and ready to face the Christmas rush. Both packages are built around the SPA Hotel’s Aqua Thermal Journey, a two-hour sensory experience designed to detoxify and revitalise.
After taking in the steam rooms, saunariums, the fragrant Balinese Salt Inhalation Room and hydrotherapy pool, you simply have to venture into the outdoor Zen Garden, braving the winter air before sinking into the warm bubbles of the hot tubs.
Lit with thousands of twinkling fairy lights, this magical outdoor space also has an experience shower with mood lighting and a Himalayan Salt Sauna. Once you’ve indulged in these invigorating treats, and you are snuggled under the cosy blankets with a mulled wine or a glass of fizz, you’ll know you have found your very own seasonal sanctuary.
The luxury lasts even longer with an overnight stay in one of The Hotel’s sumptuous rooms. The ‘Tip-toe into Christmas’ package includes an overnight stay, with dinner and breakfast, and a top-to-toe treatment featuring an ELEMIS massage, Booster Facial and Frangipani Foot Scrub from just 149 per person.

Three-day Christmas week breaks offer the opportunity to enjoy one of the many treatments offered by The SPA for men and women, including its own Signature collection which can’t be found anywhere else in the UK. Treat yourself to a facial, full body massage, skin treatment or holistic therapy and, as it’s Christmas, why not indulge in some ‘finishing touches’ to leave lashes, brows and nails looking fabulous too.
All this pampering perfection is matched by the first-rate food offered in The Hotel’s 2AA Rosette restaurants. The super-talented chefs have put together mouth-watering Christmas menus, so you can enjoy a romantic dinner, as well as cocktails in the Champagne Bar, or a relaxing drink in front of the roaring fire in The Lounge Bar. This is ‘me time’ with a star on top.
