Although located only about an hour from London, Cliveden House feels not only half a world away, but as if it also exists in a whole different era. Merely driving up to its grand stone facades and ornate and sprawling gardens, makes you think that time travel is perhaps possible after all! But such historical grandeur hides a secret, and one very much in keeping with the modern world.
The newly launched Cliveden Spa, which is housed within, is a state-of-the-art treatment center which offers all manner of restorative and beauty procedures. And it is this blend of past and present which makes this such a popular location, with guests looking to unwind and bathe in the tranquility of the place. You can also bathe in a more literal sense as the walled garden which leads to the spa area also houses the property’s famous Profumo pool which is renowned for being the only outdoor swimming pool to be listed on the historical register in Britain!
And there is something quintessentially British about the treatments found within too. To create a unique menu of treatments, the Spa has teamed up with U.K.-based skincare brand Oskia to create their own, unique Cliveden Body Collection. This includes such options as a 90-minute Rose Garden Experience scrub and massage, perfect for releasing the pent-up stresses that come with the hustle and bustle of modern life, soothing the skin from the inside out.
Even deeper states of relaxation can be achieved from the two-hour-long Cliveden Bespoke Flotation experience, a blend of warm-water flotation and natural healing therapies designed to release not only physical tension but to help restore emotional balance as well.
Those looking for treatments which also include aspects of beautification will find that the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Spa, the only one of its kind in the country, is exactly what they are looking for. Four different complementary facial procedures designed to reverse signs of ageing, hydrate skin, and revitalize tired eyes.
And once you have had a day of relaxation and pampering, guests will head towards the newly built Spa Kitchen where they will be served food based on a clean-eating menu so that your body’s internal workings are treated to the same level of care and precision pampering as your external. Just such a meal had whilst overlooking the property’s sumptuous landscape and gorgeous architecture is the perfect way to round off the day.
