A New You! November Spa/Wellness Interludes
Yes, it’s time to mention the dreaded ‘C’ word – Christmas! As soon as Halloween (sometimes even before!) is finished the world and his wife are in Christmas mode. Allowing for all the hyperbole associated with Spa/Wellness breaks (and it does seem somewhat over the top) November is a good month for some cleansing preparations to put you in good shape for all the December festivities and parties.
Several hotels have some really attractive offers during November that include spa treatments. ‘The Hideout’ (Beauty Cottage) at Tankardstown House in Co. Meath has a treatment called a ‘Payot – deep cleaning facial’. The aftermath of this therapy will result in you feeling cleansed, relaxed and revived from head to toe.
Further afield Number One Pery Square have very extensive spa offers, one called The One and Only Voya Retreat. This comprises of an hour in the Thermal Suite where you can indulge in some down time in the herbal cocoon, aroma steam, coal bunker sauna and relaxation suite; all of which sound very tantalizing.
My final suggestion is Parknasilla Resort & Spa in the Kingdom of Kerry; I would definitely try to make this a 2/3 night break to really savour and digest all their spa offerings. The one that stands out is the rather unusual Sothys Smoothing/Warming Treatment, which apparently has some interesting benefits including the improvement of your silhouette. I think that is the one I might need most of all!
If you do manage to give yourself a November treat at any of the above, I am sure you will alleviate any black shadows from under the eyes, never mind fitting into the glittery ‘guna’ (dress).
