Whether you’re looking for a girly getaway, some much needed R&R or are on the lookout for something a little more…romantic (!) this summer, Champneys has got you covered. We’ve had a sneak peek at all the wonderful new treatments, retreats and products they’ll be offering for the season ahead and we can confirm you’re in for a treat!
Wellness fads come and go but with Champneys dating back to 1925, they really are one of the true original health resorts of its kind, and as a result, you can rely on their wealth of experience when it comes to all things health and wellness.
We’ve had the pleasure of visiting Eastwell Manor in the past and thoroughly enjoyed floating around in our gowns, from treatment room to pool and back again. Summer is a great time of year to visit with so much more to the spa then meets the eye. If the idea of sitting in your gown gives you itchy feet, you’ll be pleased to know that Eastwell Manor has beautiful grounds, ideal if you enjoy breaking up your treatments with gentle hikes. There’s also an outdoor (heated!) swimming pool for leisurely laps and an impressive, all-weather tennis court. So even the most energetic won’t get bored. Of course aside from Eastwell Manor in Kent, there are also resorts in Tring, Spring, Forest Mere and Henlow. And as if that wasn’t enough you’ll find a handful of city spas across the country if you really can’t get away.
So without further ado, here are our top Champneys Summer picks for 2019…
THE HERO PRODUCT – Champneys Professional Collection Moisturising Face Masks (Pack of 3), £9
This clever pack of face masks are a lifesaver after a day in the sun. If you’re anything like us, you only need to think about the sunshine to get a bit pink, but these replenish your complexion when the rays have taken their toll. Containing hyaluronic acid, they smell amazing whilst the chamomile calms everything down a notch. Leave to sink in for 10-20 minutes if you can.
Buy Now or at the Champneys Boutique during your stay. You can often pick up some great deals – so leave some space in your case!
THE TREATMENT – Champneys diamond dermabrasion, £95 – 50 mins | £125 – 80 mins
I’m getting married later this year so I’ll be ramping up my skincare regime to make sure I’m looking my best in the photos. This new treatment uses Champneys newest skincare range and is both relaxing AND delivers results. Something I always look for in a treatment. The diamond dermabrasion works to removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen and elastin production, whilst the LED Light Therapy Hood uses natural light energy to heal and improve skin. Bliss.
THE RETREAT – Total body reboot juice detox and Pilates with Amanda Hamilton at Champneys Tring (2, 3 or 4 nights), from £659
We’ve got a very busy summer ahead of us, so we loved the sound of this total body reboot with TV nutritional expert Amanda Hamilton. Available at Tring for either 2, 3 or 4 nights, you can expect to lose a bit of weight safely if that’s your goal, de-stress (yes, please!), improve gut health and boost energy levels. Each day will start with a 45 minute Pilates class (we just took this up about six months ago and it’s now our favourite class of the week!) followed by guided walks and a choice of classes – everything from relaxing yoga or meditation to more upbeat Zumba or tennis. A luxury two-hour detox spa experience is included in the package, which supports the detoxification process and is just dreamy. Each day of the retreat there’s both an educational seminar with topics such as gut-health, as well as a more practical workshop where you’ll learn how to make healthy snacks amongst other things. While you’re there you’ll follow a totally personalised nutrition plan full of delicious juices and smoothies. Where do we sign up!
