With working weeks ever-longer and the rigours taking their toll on women, a weekend solely focused on how much alcohol can be consumed is increasingly seen as a poor option. Spa and pamper hen weekends are more geared towards that all-important feeling of sisterhood with friends you might not have seen for some time. Conversation flows so much easier in one of these peaceful leisure facilities than in a packed bar, offering a valuable opportunity to catch up.

There are a variety of purpose-built facilities within these complexes including your typical sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, just perfect for a punnet of strawberries and perhaps a glass of champagne – ideal for getting the hen do started.

Facial treatments are included in many of these packages, which offer purifying and rehydrating properties to skin that is often exposed to the harsh elements of cold/hot air, UV rays and pollution. They also promise to refresh the skin, cleanse the pores and revitalize skin to leave you feeling younger. If you are combining these spa and pamper treatments with hitting the town, facials can leave you feeling your most essential, confident self.

Another popular treatment within the spa and pamper hen weekend is that old favourite – massage. There are many different types of massage available, used as a method of healing and muscle detangling on specific areas of the body, including Indian head massage, deep and intensive neck and back massages and oil based Thai massages, to name a few. These treatments reduce muscle tension and therefore stress – the perfect antidote to the working week.
