There’s something seriously beguiling about a spa that manages to capture the hearts of their customers again and again. As I waited to pay my bill, I almost winced as I heard someone’s tab (until I realised she’d been there a week).
Who would blame her?
It’s seemingly obvious, that one day at the spa hotel is never enough for Ragdale’s loyal customers.
It’s unsurprising that last year the Leicestershire spa boasted a variety of accolades.
Some of the highlights were: Best Spa in the UK, Best for Girlfriend Getaways and Best for Affordability/Budget by SpaFinder Wellness; Best Dedicated Spa by Candis magazine; Number One Rural Retreat by The Telegraph; Top Five Fitness Retreat by Women’s Health magazine and Five Bubble spa rating by the Good Spa Guide.
The plush spa quarters are built around a sophisticated hotel so you can simply enjoy a day experience, or join the overnight crew.
There are an array of spa treatments offering high end Elemis & Decleor, Clarins and Spa Find. They set the bar high, and continue with this through their customer service from the minute you sashay through their front door.
For those who are time-pressed there are speedy services in the Beauty Express area; from OPI nail paints to mini shoulder massages, and start from as little as £19.
In the world famous Thermal suite, there’s an inviting secret lagoon style pool that begins indoors, then meanders into the fresh air. With inlets carved into the pool, tuck yourself into a nook and enjoy the powerful jets as they massage your weary limbs.
There’s an abundance of hot and cold experiences in the Thermal Spa area. Try detoxing in the rose sauna, taking it easy in the dry heat of the thought zone, or simply switching off in the silence of the entrancing Candle Pool.
If hot experiences aren’t your bag, there are lots of nooks for relaxing, country walks, stunning gardens & fine dining.
Currently experiencing a renovation for the Summer, Ragdale Hall always has, and always will have a huge soft spot with us at Fashion Forensics.
The refurb does not detract from the warmth and charm, so do not be alarmed it’ll be all building work and drilling. Ragdale have always been very considerate of their guests needs.
We look forward to seeing their rooftop infinity pool soon.
