Mum and I treated ourselves to a stay here in August this year. I was a little apprehensive about it, as i had heard SO MANY good reviews from various friends, and i thought to myself 'there is no way this place is going to live up to the hype' - but it did!! and was even more amazing that i could have imagined.
The staff, the ambience, the rooms, all perfectly styled, not overly styled, just a fresh classical look that remains timeless. Low key lighting everywhere and an atmosphere of calm relaxation make it a perfect escape from the everyday world.
The spa was lovely, they have an amazing chill out room upstairs, which is really special. the treatments were good, not excellent, i think it depends on what beauty therapist you get. (Mum raved about her treatments, whereas i was a little less impressed) the Provonias products are amazing and worth a trip just for a facial alone!! but i got a full body scrub and let's just say after the beauty therapist took off the scrub, there was lots of it left on me! and i had to hop up on the table with the shower head to try and rinse it off but to no avail!! eventually had to ask for a shower! not ideal. but it still didn't really put me off the place, which says it all really.
the food is amazing, simple and clean, and healthy if you want too. it's not a big drinking place, you can have a glass of wine with you dinner but it's not a place to go tear it up at the bar, which i think makes the place so relaxing.
whatever you do, don't miss breakfast, it's perhaps the best i'ver had!!
don't think about it anymore - JUST GO!!! :)
