With its glass-covered cellar holding over 30,000 bottles of wine – many from the owner’s Californian vineyard – The Vineyard near Newbury in leafy Berkshire is the UK’s leading wine hotel. Just an hour from central London, the five-star hotel is a must for lovers of fine food and wine, with dishes prepared by chef Daniel Galmiche.
The Vineyard is also home to a boutique spa, fittingly awarded ‘Five Bubbles’ – the highest rating – by the prestigious Good Spa Guide. With its own show stopping feature in the glass roof guests can star gaze from the elegant surroundings of the luxurious circular heated indoor swimming pool and relax in the warmth of the Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
The extensive list of treatments includes a selection of signature treatments, many of these use the Vineyard’s exclusive Red Grape products, fragrant with sun-ripened fruit. A selection of VitaMan treatments are also available tailored specifically to men. High-end French brand Darphin has been selected for the face and body, not to mention waxing, tinting and manicures and pedicures. In addition the spa offers treatments for couples and pregnant women. The spa does not have members and is exclusively open to hotel guests only.
Signature treatments including the 55-minute Red Grape Body Pampering Wrap continue the hotel’s wine theme with body brushing to help eliminate toxins, a red grape body mask, a tension releasing head massage and moisturising treatment to promote soft skin with the application of red grape cream. The Balinese Journey, one hour 25-minutes of bliss involving rhythmic body brushing, cleansing and traditional Balinese massage to unblock channels is ideal for relaxation. Feeling energised? There is also a Fitness Suite fully equipped with cardiovascular equipment, weights and mats.
Rooms and suites are each named after iconic wines with the six top ones celebrating owner Peter Michael wines. Dressed with plump pillows, crisp linens, marble bathrooms and REN amenities, rooms and suites range from the contemporary Luxury Doubles with lounge area to the elegant Grand Suite with four-poster bed, separate lounge and freestanding tub. All have plenty of space to enhance the spa process, why not sit back in a bath at the end of the day?
‘The Taste of Spa’ package costs £240 per person and includes an overnight stay in a Luxury Double room, full English breakfast, a five-course dinner and a 55-minute spa treatment of your choice and use of the spa facilities.
