Mummy Time Out

On Monday I had some much needed Mummy time out. I was invited to the Sienna Spa at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Manchester for a spa day.

Leaving C and LissyLou with their Auntie and Uncle for the day was tough but I was so excited I didn’t mind and I knew they would be in very safe hands with my Brother in Law and Sister In Law.

Once I arrived at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel I was shown the way to Sienna Spa which is in the Basement of the Hotel. I was a bit unsure as which way to go but a member of staff popped out to  welcome me and show me where everything was. I took a seat in the reception room overlooking the pool to complete my information form and choose what I would like for lunch, before being shown to the changing rooms. I slipped on the provided robe and slippers and went back to the reception room to enjoy a glass of juice before my treatment, and enjoyed a quick peek at the mix of magazines before Sarah came to take me to the treatment room.

The room was small, but smelt lovely and had relaxing music playing. I settled myself on the treatment bed and Sarah came back to prepare for my facial. After examining my skin Sarah decided which comfortzone products to use and dimmed the lights ready for the facial. It was by far the best facial I have ever had, the comfortzone products smelt delicious and Sarah was very good. The facial also incorporated a hand and arm massage that was very relaxing and I felt myself gently drifting away with my thoughts. Once the hour was over Sarah encouraged me to get up slowly, drink a glass of water and relax and offered me tips on how to get the best overall benefit from my treatment. She gave me a card which showed which comfortzone products she had used and the prices should I have wanted to buy them to take home. There was no pressure to buy though. My skin felt amazing, very hydrated and super soft, I would highly recommend the comfortzone products.

Next I went through to the pool area to enjoy a quick swim. The pool is lit with blue LEDS which gives it a relaxing vibe and coupled with the jacuzzi, steam room and sauna it was very relaxing. I loved the changing coloured lights in the sauna roof but would have preferred the jacuzzi to be a bit warmer but having the place pretty much to myself certainly wasn’t a bad thing!

I went back to the reception room for lunch and as I sat down I was wondering how I was supposed to eat from the low coffee tables. I needn’t have worried. Exactly at 12pm (the time I had requested) my lunch was delivered by a smart waiter on a rolling trolley. He proceeded to lift the edge of trolley up turning it into a table, complete with my lunch under a silver cloche. The lunch was delicious, Plaice fillets with salsa verde and crushed potatoes. A large portion, succulent fish and tasty potatoes with fresh bread rolls. It was very tasty, I could happily have chosen any of the lunch options as they all sounded good and with choices from salad to beef burger there was something for all tastes.

As part of your spa experience you can also use the well equipped fitness suite, I didn’t! I don’t go on a relaxing spa day to pound the treadmills but each to their own!

After lunch I went to get changed and was impressed by the hair dryers (with choice of nozzles!) and the straighteners. Clearly realising that unless you leave looking good you won’t feel good! I was impressed. I also liked the complimentary shower gel, shampoo and body lotion. All of which smelled divine and left my skin and hair smelling and feeling great.

I left feeling relaxed and happy and wondering when I can go back!

Visit the Sienna Spa, you won’t be disappointed but I highly recommend going early in the week to take advantage of the quieter times, come the weekend it is very busy (we have stayed before and found the pool area to be too busy to enjoy).

Sienna Spa picked up my spa day tab in exchange for my honest thoughts

    • Oh you really do need a spa day! It was lush, I just need to arrange another. Maybe we should book an Aqua Sana day (Centre Parcs) as a meet up and treat! I guess we could even take the families and leave the men to look after the children lol x
