Well what can i say! I was blown away when i came here with my partner. It really held up its name of "an award winning spa"
I booked a 1 night stay the hotel with 40 minute treatments each, full use of facilities and a dinner voucher of £40 per person to use towards their in house RGs restaurant. This had to be booked on a Sunday but that was fine for us. (They have many similar packages if you need to come within the week)
Set in the Kentish countryside is a beautiful 4 star hotel and utopia spa. Which can be hired for events or weddings. It had a beautiful drive up to the establishment, which was well kept and really set the scene.
"Utopia is a spa destination like no other. Featuring nineteen treatment rooms including two couple's treatment rooms, iconic Romanesque split-level pools, saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and more'
Reception staff were super friendly on arrival and parking on site was not an issue. Free parking and more than enough parking space for this boutique hotel.
Hotel was super cute from the outside, and inside was very clean and more modern then i expected. We were upgraded to a luxury king room, i only paid for a comfort king size room which cost me £419 (package). The upgraded room was worth £475. So a cheeky saving of £56.
(Rooms available from Double to a Private Master Suite)
I was blown away with our room. A king bed, beautiful modern design, large free standing bath and shower. Our room was at the end of hotel over looking the garden, which felt private and had a great view. We also had a complimentary bottle of fizz in our room which was a lovely touch.
The treatments were super!! i had a 40 minute facial and my partner had a 40 minute back, neck and shoulder massage. Treatment rooms were very clean and very smart. Nice dim lighting so you can really relax. Felt very premium. After your treatment refreshments were available and you were also allowed to used the relaxation room after. The products used were Temple Spa. I hasn't heard of this brand before, but i was not disappointed with my results and products smelt lovely.
The pools were beautiful and decorated in a roman fashion, making them unique. Downstairs a smaller hydrotherapy pool with loungers and a large jacuzzi area. Upstairs a larger swimming pool. The facilities were not crowded and again felt very premium and has a different feel if you are used to visiting spas.
Dinner was an amazing experience, with £80 towards our dinner we had a 3 course meal and cocktails. (2-AA Rosette Laid-Back Luxury Restaurant). We then retired to the lounge for more cocktails. We did spend more than £80 budget, but it was well worth it. I loved the blue theme :)
Overall i can honestly say i was blown away. The boutique feel didn't feel over packed with too many treatments packed in, and there was always space by the pool area. I would 100% return and try a new package next time. I would highly recommend to any one after a spa day or break in the Kent area. Has a premium feel, a little something special.
