The Vineyard has always had a first class reputation for its cuisine, wine and guest rooms, and its Spa does not disappoint even the most discerning guests. The hotel is just to the west of Newbury, Berkshire, minutes from the M4 and A34.
The Spa offers full day and evening packages, as well as over night spa breaks.
“Our Vineyard Spa is the perfect place for a spirit-lifting experience. As one of the most highly-rated spas in the UK, (awarded “5 Bubbles” by the Good Spa Guide”) we offer a complete escape to an oasis of tranquillity. What sheer bliss not to have to clock watch any more.”
The main spa consists of a large round glass-walled wet area, with a pool, spa bath, relaxation areas and a seating area for light refreshments. There is also a garden area for warmer days. A circular staircase leads down to a small changing room, sauna and steam room. Treatment rooms are in a different part of the hotel a short walk away, however you will not need to get changed out of your robe and slippers to get there.
The spa has a wonderfully light, calm, relaxing feeling. The glass walls and very high domed ceiling give the impression you are in an open space, and the spa is very cleverly lit.
The treatment area is in a different part of the hotel, with its own reception area. The rooms are beautiful, some of them with stunning paintings on the ceilings to give a reel feeling of tranquility. I opted for a 25 minute head, neck and shoulder massage and a 25 minute foot massage, and left the treatment area in a state of total bliss. The therapist was very experienced and thorough and the treatment bed had a heated underblanket and proper sheets and blankets, rather than just towels, to add a really luxurious touch.
We would particularly recommend The Vineyard Spa to those looking for a peaceful, refined experience for couples, or brides with their mother or bridesmaid, rather than as a larger group experience.
