I had such a decadent day, friends. It has been one of the most soothing and reinvigorating afternoons ever. There’s nothing quite like taking an afternoon off and trying something new… Especially if that something new happens to be a spa.
My friend and I decided to sync up our diaries and treat ourselves to a mid-week excursion to the Mana Spa in Coventry. I am so happy that we finally have a decent spa in our city!
We started off the day with a quick Wagamama and I went for the beef ramen (yum!) before we headed off down the newly refurbished and repainted city centre (I am no good with street names) to take some pictures!
We weren’t allowed to take pictures / mobiles into the spa area, which was fine by me! What an adventure… Removing myself from being contactable by everyone all of the time! We removed our clothes, adorned our robes and went straight in for our massages… And what massages they were!
We bought a midweek package, to save some pennies, which came with a 90 minute (!) massage. Ugh. Utter bliss. I felt otherworldly when I finally burst forth from that cocoon of towels and it took so much of my stress away.
Afterwards, we had access to the spa area… It was so tiny but in a good way. In a way that means there was barely a soul there and we had our pick of all of the spa facilities – foot jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, aromatherapy room, hot stone beds… Whatever we wanted! I feel refreshed and ready to take on anything!
