What could you do in three hours? You could individually soft boil sixty eggs; you could listen to The Beatles play The Fool on the Hill exactly sixty times or you could try getting beyond the first chapter of Stephen Hawking’s bestseller A Brief History of Time.
Alternatively, you could let your hair down and have some me time with today’s Big Deal at the V Spa in the family-owned Villa Rose Hotel, Ballbofey.
The V Spa, set within the four star Villa Rose, is one of only two such purpose built spas in County Donegal.
Featuring seven treatment rooms, the spa’s relaxing ambience is created by candle light, soft music and specially selected scents.
The Big Deal includes a luxury facial; a leg and foot massage; a scalp massage and a session in the V Spa Thermal Suite.
In the Thermal Suite, guests can enjoy a balmy crystal steam; luxurious foot spas and the hydrotherapy spa experience which boasts swan jets, underwater jets, tropical showers and an ice fountain.
One of the highpoints of the three hour package is sure to be a session in the Razul mud chamber. An ancient Arabian cleansing method, the Razul ritual uses mineral-rich mud, heat and steam to leave the skin with a rejuvenated glow.
The Big Deal also includes use of the relaxation room and complimentary refreshments in the tea room.
If you really want to make a special occasion of it then the hotel offers special accommodation rates to voucher holders who would like to stay over.
The V Spa at Villa Rose is a hit with guests. This is what a couple of very enthusiastic visitors had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘The best part of our stay was the V-Spa – it’s superb! An hour each in the thermal suite (steam room and Jacuzzi) with a one hour treatment – all fantastic and very relaxing.’ Claire Cunningham
‘Our spa experience was fantastic. We both had a back massage which was so relaxing!! Followed by an hour in the Jacuzzi and steam, really a perfect morning. The spa staff were wonderful, friendly without being intrusive.’ Kaetiesueirl
