As international travel is still challenging with traffic light tiering systems, many Brits are choosing to stay in the UK this summer to avoid the stress and anguish that comes with venturing abroad.
Whilst staycations are a great way to escape, there’s nothing quite like taking in the new sights and smells of a foreign land, and returning with that ‘holiday feeling glow’ that we all desire.
Despite its UK city centre location, the Rena Spa at the Midland based in central Manchester can now reveal how it transports its guests to the rolling countryside of Bordeaux, providing a much needed wellbeing hit with face and body treatments from French beauty brand Caudalie.
Rena Spa’s therapists and friendly staff transport guests to France using Caudalie’s products which started with the vines at Château Smith Haut Lafitte. Leftover grapes were transformed into indulgent luxury skincare and body products that are now sold all over the world. The smells of the products fill the spa and transport guests straight back to the sun kissed vineyards, and the cocooning treatments revitalise, energise and relax guests.
Whether you have a few stolen hours or a whole weekend to unwind in Manchester, a trip to Rena Spa at The Midland is always time well spent. From sleep chambers to a heated relaxation pool, steam rooms and an indulgent treatment menu, there is no easier way to melt away the stresses from everyday life once entering.
The Rena Spa at the Midland now reveals its most popular treatments, and how to ensure you get the very best of your indulgent journey through France.
