Health & Spa, Kings Lynn, Norfolk: spa review

I was impressed with the Imagine Spa from the outset. The reception area was softly lit and relaxing, with refreshments served on arrival. The therapist discussed with me at length what I was looking for from my day and talked through a variety of treatments. Heading into the spa, the atmosphere was incredibly tranquil, with water features that totally transformed the mood of the place (and me).

Initially I spent an hour relaxing on my own in the thermal suite, enjoying the benefits of the mineral grotto, aroma steam room, feature showers, ice mountain and foot spa — unsurprisingly that hour just flew. On the treatment front, I first detoxed for 45 minutes in an Ocean Bath, a deep Jacuzzi bath with blue-green algae, minerals and vitamins. Next came the Norfolk Herbal Reviver, a 30-minute full-body salt exfoliation infused with sage, rosemary and locally grown Norfolk lavender. For this I lay down on the Hamman heated stone table, which was divine.

This was then followed by a back massage, which really ironed out some knots and finally a prescriptive facial, 60 minutes of bliss, using the innovative Babor product line. My therapist diagnosed my skin type and prescribed products which would help address problem areas. Needless to say I left the spa feeling on top of the world.

On the menu: Thermal Suite, mud bath, Hammam, wraps, scrubs, massages, facials and manicure and pedicure treatments

Signature treatment: Norfolk Herbal Reviver, a full-body exfoliation

Cost: £30 for signature treatment

Verdict: 9/10
