Butlins New Spa – a break with tradition
Categories: blogging mums

On the launch day of the Spa a few of us lovely bloggers (and children and buggies and balloons) did a tour of the hotel and we then visited the Spa.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but actually, to be honest, I’d imagined the usual spa set up. My preconceptions were blown out of the water during the tour.

The reception area is in the hotel and has a full range of products to buy and we were given lots of samples in our goodie bags. There is also a great range of treatments for just about the whole family, including a MarshMallow facial for teenagers who get a hot chocolate topped with, yes you guessed it, marshmallows at the end of the treatment.

We were greeted by a Polar Bear and had a walk around the jaccuzzi – it had bright disco lights in the water and Miniminx was very keen to jump straight in – she wasn’t alone. The decor is bright and funky which suits the whole new Butlins vibe and probably its clientele who are up for the brand experience.

The most unusual thing we encountered was a snow room – I’ve never seen one, let alone been in one and it immediately became a mid Summer snow fight. There were more things to see on the trip round and the treatment rooms were great.

I booked into have a pedicure as my feet were suffering from 10 days on the beach and like most Mums, I no longer have time to pamper and preen ahead of holiday and have to cram it all in while I am away. So needless to say, I was looking forward to it and PartMummyPartMe was an absolute star and whisked Miniminx away for another swim – our daughters get along really well.

I paid £35 for a pedicure which is pretty good going pricewise and I got a full hour – including some heated feet booties which help soften skin. The treatment lady was lovely so we had a nice chat throughout the pedi – she told me that some of the staff live on site and even hold there wedding receptions in the resort. Over a week later I still have my lovely pink toenails and I’d definitely recommend going there.

One thing that caught my eye on the way round was the Premier League massage – it’s a great one for blokes who usually wouldn’t go near a spa but secretly like a pamper.

You can choose your favourite football team and watch top matches from the comfort of the massage table.

All in all, this is a unique experience and I wouldn’t expect anything less from this great British tradition.
