THE SPA REVIEW: THE SPA @ SUITES HOTEL, LIVERPOOL, UK
Review: Nichola Hirst
On arrival at the spa we were welcomed by Sue, who showed us to a comfy sofa and brought us tea and biscuits, Sue sat with us, explained the itinerary for our spa day, and gave us menus for lunch so we could pre-order. We were then given a full tour of all the facilities.
Before heading to relax in the spa we visited the modern spa bistro for a two course lunch. As we had selected our order on arrival, once seated the service was quick and efficient and the food was scrumcious and filling. There was a good selection to choose from including starters of salt and pepper chicken, smoked mackerel pate and soup of the day. Mains included cajun salmon salad, hoisin duck wrap, jacket potatoes with a selection of fillings and traditional club sandwiches. There was also an option to choose a Bento Box which included a selection of appetisers including dim sum, spring rolls, mini bagels and salmon pasta salad. Desserts were hard to resist with options of chocolate fudge cake, fruit kebabs and cheese and biscuits. The bistro is also a great spot to enjoy afternoon tea with a choice of either Traditional or the Gentlemen’s selection.
The spa has an excellent, varied range of over 90 luxurious treatments and a great selection of spa packages. We loved the look of the Bollinger Champagne Nail Suite. There is also a Mud Rasual treatment room for private treatment up to 4 people.
My guest had the Decleor Aroma Body Massage and Discovery Facial, where Amy her therapist made her feel welcome and relaxed. The Decleor products left her skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. She couldn’t recommend enough.
My treatment was the Decleor Radiant Mum To Be treatment – lasting 1 hour 25 minutes. Sjaan was my therapist and she started with a full body massage using Decleor Tonic Balm, the pressure was firm but relaxing, easing aches and pains. This was followed by a second stage of the treatment which was a gorgeous facial; this started with a soothing facial cleanse using Decleor Aroma Cleanse Cleansing Milk. Decleor Phytopeel was used to exfoliate followed by Decleor Essential Tonifying Lotion which was used to close the pores ready for an application of Decleor Neroli Serum which helps with drainage. A face massage with Decleor Neroli Balm was divine before an application of Decleaor Hydra Floral Mask which was left on for 5 minutes. To finish the facial Decleor Aroma Lisse Eye Cream was smoothed around the eyes, and lastly an dose of Decleor Aroma Lisse Moisturiser was the finishing touch. Just under an hour and half of total bliss – a treatment I’d definitely be back for.
After our treatments we were shown to the amazing Relaxation Suite to rest. This is a tranquil space where you can have a snooze on the luxury day beds with pillows and duvets, read magazines that are supplied, or a listen to your music in pure peace. Complementary cold/ hot water, fresh milk, herbal tea and coffee, biscuits and fresh fruit juice were available to help yourself from the fridges and refreshment areas and you can order prosecco as an extra option.
The Thermal Suite & Spa
Extensive facilities include a gym, jacuzzis and 18 metre swimming pool. The thermal suite is opulent in decor and design and one of the best we have seen. Heated relaxing beds are are ideal spot for a round two of ‘power snooze’. Try the Shinann Foots Spas with colour therapy lights and the Rainfall experience shower.
The heat and ice experiences include the following:
Crystal Steam Room – Also known as Turkish or Roman steam bath. The heat teamed with essential oils offer a deep relaxation therapy.
Sauna – intense heat to help muscle relaxation
Ice Room – refresh and revive the body after the heat experience. Be brave!
This spa day was nothing less than a 5 star experience, we thoroughly enjoyed it and it’s a great venue for small groups, couples and pairs of friends.
