Some people are born to organise parties. Some people achieve party organisation. Others have party organising thrust upon them. It doesn’t matter which one of those categories you fall into, it’s always difficult to try and organise a group experience that will please everybody who has RSVP’d.
But hardly anyone ever thinks of bringing a group to a day spa. Here at Spa Experience, we encourage it! Our group bookings receive complimentary drinks, goody bags, product offers and even your own party coordinator. Our group spa packages are tailored to your individual needs and we even offer exclusive use rates if you want the whole spa to yourself.
You might think that only hen parties or bridal parties would want to come to a day spa for a party. After all, what group of women wouldn’t love an opportunity to pamper themselves? Not only is a hen party at Spa Experience an affordable event for everybody, it’s also mum and grandma appropriate, so they can still take part without feeling excluded from any shenanigans that may or may not take place later in the evening. With our range of Elemis facials and La Sultane Da Saba body therapies, there is a treatment that will suit everyone in your group.
But if you’re planning a different type of group experience, you might not have considered a spa day that would make for an incredible party with a luxurious twist.
The secret to a legendary stag party is preparation. Whether you want a detox to prepare your body before a long night or quietly recover in a relaxing environment to prepare for the day after, our spas are the perfect place to go.
Treat yourself to: Our range of male grooming treatments or a relaxing thermal spa experience.
Combine with: Don’t go the usual route of a big boozy night in a few expensive bars. Change it up with something fun like bubble soccer in Essex, paintballing in Surrey, drift car driving in Hertfordshire, skydiving in Somerset or go all out on a helicopter ride across London. If you want to stick to the more traditional stag party, you can take your pick of microbrewery tours or cocktail making classes followed by the glitz and glamour of a burlesque show.
Take home: Relive tense muscles with our Elemis Musclease Oil or scrub away the sins of the night before with the deep cleansing La Sultane de Saba Black Soap.
Why drag a pregnant woman out to a busy public place where you may have to wait for reservations, fit into a cramped table and watch her dietary restrictions like a hawk, when you can indulge her in a spa day instead? Not only will our prenatal treatments take a load off her mind (and her feet), our specialist therapies ensure her growing bump is nurtured in a safe and relaxing setting.
You can also take the stress of finding a babysitter off your to-do list; Spa Experience has crèche facilities available at a number of our locations including Epsom, Waltham Forest, Welwyn Garden City, Wimbledon and Swiss Cottage.
Treat yourself to: The La Sultane De Saba Sweetness in Bloom facial is the ultimate pregnancy pampering treatment, while the Elemis Peaceful Pregnancy Massage ensures every mum to be goes home feeling de-stressed and rejuvenated.
Combine with: Forego the usual baby shower festivities for something a little different like a bespoke outdoor afternoon tea in Essex, a protein boost with steak and mocktails in Surrey, collecting eggs and indulging in some fresh food at a farm in Hertfordshire, arranging a few beautiful bouquets in Somerset or creating a gift that will last forever with a pottery workshop in London.
Take home: Your mum-to-be can treat themselves to an Elemis Nourishing Milk Bath any time they want, or help reduce the appearance of stretch marks with the beautifully scented Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil.
From proms to formals to debutante balls, the calendar of a teenager is packed with events that call for long lashes, flawless brows, great nails and the perfect tan. Don’t go it alone – get a group of friends together and get everything you need together in one place. From the latest nail trends to our award-winning Fake Bake tanning, share the experience with your nearest and dearest before you hop into a limo to the best night of your life.
The best thing about Fake Bake is that it is 100% safe. Don’t risk a sunbed - people who are frequently exposed to UV rays before the age of 25 are at greater risk of developing skin cancer later in life. With Fake Bake, you get a natural-looking colour with a pleasant scent – there’s no weird smell that you usually get with other fake tans. All liquids are free from artificial preservatives and parabens and contain our naturally-derived, unique tanning formula for longer lasting results.
Treat yourself to: Take your pick of any of our finishing touches treatments – choose from lash and brow tinting, body waxing, mani-pedis and fake tanning. Do you have skin that is sensitive to normal facial products? Why not try an Elemis Skin Sensitive Soother; it’s perfect for breakout-prone, adolescent skin.
Combine with: Hit up your local market for some quirky and unique accessories – whether it be Camden, Borough, Spitalfields, Portobello Road or Greenwich in London, Epsom Town in Surrey, North Weald in Essex, Watford in Hertfordshire or Taunton Country Market in Somerset. You can also pick up some fresh pre-party tunes at a bonafide record shop such as Rough Trade, Crazy Beat Records, Empire Records, Alpha Frog or The Rock Box.
Take home: Maintain the upkeep of your treatments with Fake Bake or an Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask to take home yourself.
According to mental health charity Together UK, an estimated 10% of the UK’s GNP is lost to workplace stress. Overworked, tired and stressed staff drastically affect a business’s bottom line. The usual go-to solution is a structured team-building day of menial tasks. A better way to boost your productivity and bring your team together is with a group spa day. Let the group unwind with their choice of treatments before utilising their rejuvenated state of mind for some team brainstorming sessions.
You can help your company combat work-related stress with a number of other resources; for example, Mind UK recommends creating a wellness action plan to map the causes of workplace stress and identify what aspects of work create a positive environment that keep your staff happy and healthy.
Treat yourself to: Refresh your thinking caps with a La Sultane De Saba Head in the Clouds massage, followed by an energizing Mineral Salt Scrub.
Combine with: Watch a documentary at Curzon (or your local independent cinema), go to an inspiring event at Southbank Centre, or partake in the group experience trend of the moment with an Escape Room team building activity.
Take home: Maintain peace of mind with a [Comfort Zone] Tranquility Discovery Kit or set up a Spa Experience atmosphere in your office with our exclusive signature Black Pomegranate Candle.
