Stoke Park Spa
Muddy says: Vanity Fair called Stoke Park’s spa one of the ‘four Must Visit spas in the world’ and I’m not going to argue with that judgement – the five star facilities and relaxed, luxe vibe make it a dead cert for a perfect spa day.
Vanity Fair called Stoke Park’s spa one of the ‘four Must Visit spas in the world’ and you’ll definitely enjoy the frisson of walking into the reception area, all bright, shiny and contemporary, with its modern art, velvet sofas, supersoft carpets and groovy light installations that trippily change colour every few seconds.
Stoke Park itself is a five star hotel in South Buckinghamshire with a thriving country club and a relaxed, luxe vibe and that follows through to the spa – I’m qualified to say that, I’ve been about six times already, I love it here.
The pool is stunning, a 20-metre job with double height floor-to-ceiling arched windows leading out onto a terrace and garden (make sure you check out the wicker swing chair hanging from the tree at the end of the garden with a view back to the mansion house). There’s a fab relaxation with retro Sixties spinning pod chairs, large mirrors and a huge fish tank, a deep relaxation room, a 4000ft sq gym, nail bar, outdoor jacuzzi and stand-alone Swedish sauna, and gazillions of treatment rooms offering mainly THALGO treatments.
