…Ok, it wasn’t quite the “middle” of the week, but as far as i’m concerned and the calendar for that matter, a Thursday-Friday is not the conventional weekend. Long-story-short; I went away for a couple of days on a “spa weekend”- on a weekday! It wasn’t the the Maldives, but it most definitely was a well deserved and much needed break away. Not only was the spa relaxing, but it was in Malvern. As in; out of London! Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Away from the capital smog and into some fresh country air. Admittedly, the countryside isn’t always my first choice. Hell, who am I kidding, its never my second or third choice either, nevertheless it was wonderful and like I said; a well deserved and much needed break away!
Malvern, Malvern, Malvern…A spa town up north; surrounded by countryside and known for the Malvern Hills; it was the perfect little get away- before the big get away [Watch this space]. Even with 2 (and some) hours on the motorway, it was worth it.
Anyways, as I was saying it was a delight. I mean you simply can not go wrong with an indoor/outdoor heated pool, thermo power jets, a much needed classic steam room, 2 types of saunas and a weird salt room. Oh and lets not forget the 4 types of cold showers (one to which involved a bucket) and ice falling from the ceiling into an elevated ceramic bowl just for when it gets too hot and a little overbearing (i’m not complaining). The deck chairs, sun rays and natural light coming through the large glass windows made it all the more relaxing and stress free. Imagine living in a swimsuit, robe and slippers all day and having no where to go but the “facilities”. Like I said, it was the perfect little get away! And better yet- the food wasn’t half bad either! FineDining, i’ll say! We had dinner for two and breakfast the following morning-and I have to say I was impressed Malvern! It was posh plates of food; complete with perfect presentation; plus it tasted pretty decent.
Take me back any day, please and thank you!
