Well Spa Retreat at Bluestone named Best In Wales at Good Spa Guide 2014 Awards

Pembrokeshire’s Well Spa Retreat at Bluestone National Park Resort has been named the best spa in Wales by the UK Good Spa Guide.

The luxury spa retreat near Narberth in West Wales was announced the winner of the Reader’s Choice awards during a ceremony in London attended by senior representatives from spas from throughout the UK.

The award comes just a week after sporting and television stars attended the launch of the new 2015 retreat breaks at the spa which is based within the 500 acres of Bluestone countryside.

Swansea City Football Manager Gary Monk, former Olympic athlete Jamie Baulch, Bristol and Wales international rugby player Ryan Jones and professional footballer Lee Trundle helped launch the new 2015 spa holistic breaks, alongside BAFTA Cymru award-winning actress Sara Lloyd Gregory and television presenter Anna Ryder Richardson.

“Winning such a prestigious award is a great achievement by our fabulous spa team and positions The Well Spa as a real player amongst the top resort spas of the UK. Our spa is exclusive to resort guests and the facilities and vitality pool are only accessible by adults,” said Pamela Joseph, Commercial Director of Bluestone.

“We launched our new 2015 retreat packages last week at a VIP reception and the response was amazing.

“The reputation of our spa has been built up over the past six years in association with leading company ESPA and we continuously enhance the experience and treatments to ensure that our guests receive the best possible therapies while enjoying the spectacular natural environment we have at Bluestone.”

The new four-night spa retreat breaks will launch in January 2015. Each Retreat Break includes a personal consultation with one of the expertly trained aromatherapy therapists where they will ascertain the guest’s specific needs and advise on how they can get the very best out of their spa experience.

Following this, the therapist will devise and deliver bespoke and personal holistic treatments that are perfect for the individual. Whether they are looking to feel deeply relaxed, energized, or rejuvenated, therapists will select the ideal treatment to leave guests feeling ready to take on the New Year.

Yvonne Lavis, manager of The Well Spa Retreat, said: “Our new Retreat Breaks have been developed to provide the perfect restful haven where guests can re-charge their batteries and leave feeling de-stressed and refreshed. At The Well Spa we believe everyone should have a little me time”

The Retreat Break includes one-to-one sessions with Vini yoga therapist Bethan Walton who will create a personal program for each guest to balance mind, body, and soul and bring about a true sense of spiritual relaxation. Guests will also experience a one-to-one consultation with Health Detectives, Gitti Coats, and Lise Matthews.

Using natural medicine and biochemistry in combination with muscle testing they investigate health issues and work to restore balance and foster deeper long-lasting health.

Each day of the break guests enjoys a sumptuous breakfast, a deliciously healthy lunch at Caffi Mor, and dinner in one of the restaurants on the resort. This includes two exquisite dining experiences at Carreg Las – Bluestone’s finest restaurant where there’s a real taste of Pembrokeshire on the menu.  

Guests can relax and make themselves at home as they savour the benefits of the Celtic Spa Experience in The Well Spa’s luxurious thermal suite. A treat for the skin, the spa’s sauna, steam room, ice pod, and hydro vitality pool will leave guests feeling like a new person -cleansed, detoxed, and refreshed.

Staying in a luxury five-star studio apartment, guests will be located in the heart of Bluestone – The Village. Surrounded by 500 acres of picturesque national parkland, with the tranquil lake and The Well Spa Retreat just a short walk away, guests can take it easy and immerse themselves in relaxation, Pembrokeshire fresh air, and ‘me time’ on a Retreat Break. (Retreat Break is £599 per person for a midweek four-night stay)

Bristol Rugby player and former Wales captain Ryan Jones is a regular visitor to Bluestone and The Well Spa Retreat. “This is great news for the Well Spa Retreat. We’re looking forward to returning in the New Year to try out the new breaks. We’re often here with the family, but an escape to the spa is always on the itinerary,” he said.

Bluestone is a short break destination nestled in the stunning Pembrokeshire countryside in West Wales. With luxury lodges, cottages and apartments it attracts guests on family and adult breaks from throughout the UK.
