Romantic gestures don’t always need to involve heart-shaped messages, diamonds, and roses. Modern life is busy for most couples, which means just finding time for each other is one of the most romantic things you can do. With this thought in mind, a couples’ spa day is the perfect way to rekindle your love.
At Hallmark, we have some great spa hotels, plus a wide selection of treatments, offers, and packages to suit you and your loved one. Read on to discover how we can help you both look and feel great, before sending you home with a stronger bond than before.
A couples’ massage
Stimulating massaging techniques release oxytocin. Dubbed the ‘love hormone’, it increases feelings of bonding and love. If your partner is new to spa treatments, this makes a couples’ massage a great introduction. Applied in a treatment room with tables placed side by side, you can relax, rejuvenate and revitalise together.
After you’re done, our spa hotels have a variety of saunas, steam rooms, and vitality pools you can try out. Or you can disappear to your room for the rest of your break; set your smartphones to silent, disconnect from the outside world and reconnect on a deeper level.
Afternoon tea and pampering
A cup of tea makes everything better. Packed full of antioxidants and soothing properties, it’s a great drink for reducing stress and anxiety. This makes afternoon tea the ideal way to add a cherry to the top of a morning’s pampering.
Hallmark Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon The Welcombe is one of our best locations to enjoy a tea and spa combination. Aromatherapy, hot stone massage, and facials are just some of the treatments available at The Welcombe Spa. Overlooking 157 acres of landscaped grounds and Cotswold countryside, the Trevelyan Restaurant’s terrace is a beautiful bolthole in which to sit down and enjoy a refreshing brew.
Sandwiches, scones, and presentation; learn our secret to serving the perfect afternoon tea.
Walking spa breaks
Strolling hand in hand is a great way to see new places and get within touching distance of fascinating sights and attractions. As one of the most romantic destinations in the UK, Chester is a wonderful city for a walking spa break.
Once you’re done exploring, Hallmark Hotel Wrexham Llyndir Hall, near Chester, provides a base of peace and tranquility. A stunning countryside estate on the outskirts of the city, the hotel’s Secret Sanctuary Spa is packed full of fabulous facilities and treatments. With a sauna, solarium and Pinks Boutique organic therapies for couples, there’s everything you will need to have a wonderful time.
Him and her packages
If you’re yearning for a spa day but can’t convince your loved one to join you, we have a superb compromise. Our You and Me packages allow you or your partner to unwind with a 55-minute full body massage while the other one plays a round of golf or enjoys a two-hour ski lesson. The offer also includes a two-course meal at our Brasserie restaurant, overnight accommodation in one of our snug rooms, and a full English breakfast the next day.
