With the evenings quickly drawing in at this time of year, it’s hard to resist a twilight spa treat.
I took my sister along for a Twilight Spa evening at Seaham Hall. We arrived around 6pm, had a quick tour to familiarise ourselves, then were led to some changing rooms to get into swimwear and cosy robes. With dinner booked in the Ozone restaurant for 8pm we had plenty time to swim, soak and relax. I would recommend if you’re looking to book a Twilight Spa that you do push back dinner as late as you can so you can really relax and make the most of all the facilities.
We worked our way around, starting with a quick dip in the hydrotherapy pool, then the outdoor hot tubs before a swim, steam and sauna before dinner. The new salt sauna was definitely a highlight. Such a nice dry heat and the crystal wall was something to look at too. We tried to brave the ice plunge baths but once the freezing water reached knee height that was enough for me. Maybe next time I’ll give it a proper go!
Able to dine in our robes, we headed along to Ozone for dinner. Opting for starters and mains, I enjoyed chicken satay skewers (because given the option, I’ll always order them for a starter) whilst my sister picked some summer prawn rolls. Following the complimentary prawn crackers served with a zingy sweet chilli dip, our mains arrived. Red chicken curry for my sister and I tucked into beef teriyaki with noodles.
Feeling suitably full from dinner we slowly made our way back through to the spa. Wanting to relax, we headed to the herbal sanarium, salt sauna, Hammam – the ceiling above the jacuzzi in there has lovely twinkly lights so it’s almost like looking at the stars! I foolishly decided I wanted to have another quick dip in the pool. Not the wisest decision after a two course dinner but the pool was empty so it felt rude not to.
With Twilight Spa packages available from £49.50 pp it’s a great way to take some time out for yourself, or treat someone. There’s also day packages available including treatments, if you’re wanting an extra pamper!
