A visit to a spa is the ultimate luxury treat, but it’s not always easy to find the time for a full weekend away. If you’re looking to book a half day at a Welsh spa and you’re having trouble deciding on a treatment, read on! We spoke to four of our member hotels to find out which of their spa treatments are most popular amongst guests…
The “Drift Away” Full Body Massage, Lake Country House & Spa
Lake Country House is a 4-star spa and hotel in Powys, set in gorgeous, tranquil grounds. Book an afternoon here and you can enjoy their signature treatment, a 55-minute relaxing full body massage, which will most likely see you drifting off into a gentle sleep.
Your massage therapist will use a gorgeous blend of essential oils to massage your body from head to toe, finishing up with your face and scalp.
55-Minute Warm Oil Aromatherapy Massage, Peterstone Court
Head to the Brecon Beacons to enjoy a relaxing few hours at Peterstone Court, a spa and hotel set in a gorgeous Georgian building. The most popular treatment here is a 55-minute full body aromatherapy massage, which incorporates lavender, lemongrass, tea tree, orange and ginger.
When you’re finished, you can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee in the spa’s Moroccan-themed relaxation room.
Tea for Two, The Metropole Hotel & Spa
If your idea of a perfect spa day is more about eating than treatments, then this package is perfect for you. The 4-star Metropole Hotel & Spa is located in Llandrindod Wells, Powys and offers a range of excellent spa packages, including Tea for Two.
Bring your partner or a lucky friend and you can enjoy use of the spa’s heated pool, steam room and shower before heading to Spencer’s Brasserie for afternoon tea. You’ll enjoy finger sandwiches, a patisserie selection, and tea or coffee.

Another popular treatment offered by the Metropole is the Rock Spa Special, which can be enjoyed by a group of up to 15 people. You’ll have full use of the Metropole’s spa facilities, all while wearing your complimentary robe and slippers!
Visit the sauna, steam room, hot tub, gym and heated pool, and then go off to enjoy a 55-minute massage or facial. The finishing touch is a healthy two-course lunch served in the spa.
Hot Stones Full Body Massage, Tre-Ysgawen Hall Hotel & Spa
Tre-Ysgawen Hall is a country house hotel and spa located in Llangefni on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey. One of their most popular treatments is a hot stone massage that focuses on your body’s major stress zones, and finishes with a revitalising scalp massage.
