A Spa Day At Spa Illuminata, Danesfield House

I recently spent a day at the Spa Illuminata in Danesfield House with Lauren from Blonde Vision to review their facilities. I was so excited about this as there is nothing I love more than a spa day and it was just perfect timing to have a treat like this to beat the January blues.

Danesfield House is a hotel and spa in Buckinghamshire - it's only around 30 minutes away from London. As you can see from my pictures, it is an absolutely stunning country house and has 65 acres of gorgeous landscape surrounding it.

When we arrived I was blown away by the beautiful entrance to the main house. The trees lined the driveway perfectly and in the middle you can see the stunning clock tower.

When we entered the spa we were greeted by the loveliest members of staff on the reception, they explained to us the schedule for our day and gave each of us a locker key which had slippers and a dressing gown inside - I love it when a spa provides these, it's so nice to just relax in a cosy dressing gown for the day.

Straight away we headed for the pool area and spent time in the steam room, Jacuzzi and main pool before chilling out on some layouts. Outside the windows by the pool area you can see some of their absolutely beautiful landscape, I spotted some layouts outside and thought how amazing it would be to sunbathe out there on a hot summers day!

After this it was time for a lunch break. We headed to the seating area and they had the most comfortable chairs and sofas to sit on, we stayed in our dressing gowns and it was so lovely and relaxing. The menu had a great selection of lunch options, I went for a chicken wrap and a fruit smoothie and Lauren went for a ham sandwich. We both really enjoyed our food and a light lunch like this was exactly what we needed.

After lunch we had about an hour or so of time before our treatments so we decided to chill out on the most comfortable sofa ever and read our kindles. We were given a glass of complementary champagne which we were not expecting at all - this was so lovely!

Next it was time for our treatments which I was so excited for. We were given an 80 minute treatment called the Spa Illuminata Danesfield House Trilogy with Hot Stones. It began with a deep cleansing back exfoliation followed by a back massage with hot stones. It finished with a facial and scalp massage. Every single part of this treatment was absolutely amazing, it was just the right length of time and didn't feel too short or too long. I felt so relaxed after, the facial left my skin feeling so fresh and during the scalp massage I had oils put in my hair which I kept in overnight, this left my hair feeling so soft for days after. I really recommend this treatment if you are visiting the Spa Illuminata.

After the treatment we were taken to the post treatment relaxation room and as the name suggests - it was the most relaxing room ever! It had big chairs and sofas with duvets on, fresh fruit and water available, magazines, calming music and dimmed lighting.  I honestly could of stayed in this room forever!

Unfortunately we had to start thinking about leaving as we had a long journey home, so we left the treatment room and went back to the pool area for one last session in the steam room and Jacuzzi.

When we were leaving I couldn't get over how pretty Danesfield House looked in the dark with the lights in the trees, it was just gorgeous, I really was so sad to have to leave!

I had such an amazing experience at the Spa Illuminata in Danesfield House, the venue is absolutely stunning, the staff were so professional, friendly and treated us so well. As for the treatment itself - it really was great and I felt relaxed for days after. If you are looking for somewhere to go for a spa day I really would recommend the Spa Illuminata.
