"The perfect place to relax and wind down…"
I have been lucky enough to go to the SenSpa a few times - it is one of my favourite places to unwind and relax. Definitely not one for the children though - you need to ditch them with friends/family first...
It is set in Brockenhurst, in the New Forest, so there is lots of scope for long walks/pub lunches if you are staying for a few days.
My first visit was with my husband 9 years ago for the first two nights of our honeymoon. It is the perfect honeymoon destination: romantic, quiet, relaxed and with a variety of couples treatments including one where you cover each other in mud (!)
The spa itself is fantastic. The staff are helpful, you are provided with slippers/robe and endless supply of towels. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel are all included (and are really lovely quality) and the changing the facilities are great - really roomy and with everything you could possibly need at hand.
Downstairs in the spa area is the pool with various water jets/jaccuzzis and bubbly things to play with. There are also experience showers, including a room with ice and a bucket full of freezing cold water you can tip on your head (eek). There is also a sauna downstairs and a steam room. Upstairs are two relaxation rooms and the mud treatment room.
The Thai restaurant serves delicious food - I've had lunch and afternoon tea there. If it's warm you can sit in the garden. There is also a studio where you can participate in various classes (wearing ridiculous pyjamas kindly provided by the spa) and another relaxation room with comfy chairs/sofas/magazines and an endless supply of tea/coffee/juice.
SenSpa do overnight/weekend stays, but they also do more budget friendly day, half-day and evening sessions.
I can't recommend SenSpa highly enough - it really is the perfect place to relax and wind down. It is expensive compared with some other spas, but it is definitely worth saving up for!Read moreLess

"Fabulous weekend of pampering!…"
Treated to a stay here by the oh. Had a junior suite which was lovely although on the smallish side. The spa itself was fabulous. Had a fantastic scrub treatment and spent most of each afternoon lounging in the hydrotherapy pool. Service is great and the location is in a beautiful part of the New Forest. We managed to get out horse riding one morning as well. A big thumbs up!Read moreLess
