If you’re thinking of escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and heading somewhere to enjoy the arrival of spring (it may seem impossible at the moment, but we promise, this weather will go away eventually), then there are few better places to do this than Alexander House & Utopia Spa in Sussex.
Conveniently placed for travel just off the M23, this venue is accessible from London and offers you tranquil countryside, beautiful Country Manor House interiors and luxurious facilities to ensure you can unwind and relax in style. The Grecian inspired design of the spa gives a sense of true luxury and really is the stuff of dreams – atmospheric lighting highlights tall marble columns, intricate mosaics decorate the white walls, and the attention to detail makes this spa fit for celebrity and royalty.
There’s a large exercise pool, a hydrotherapy pool, bubble tubs, saunas, and an outdoor hot tub set on a sun-trapped terrace and surrounded by mature shrubs. Even the changing rooms are dripping with indulgent accessories – you’ll find ultra-soft towels, high quality toiletries and private monsoon showers, and even a pedicure/manicure nail station and hair salon.
The hotel itself is equally impressive. The rooms here have been designed with flow, comfort and style in mind, and you’ll find a stunning combination of old and new, presented with a feeling of warmth and welcome. Each of the 38 rooms and suites are individually designed, and all of them provide everything you could possibly desire for a weekend of pampering – enormous baths, Temple Spa toiletries, digital TV and also all the useful things – ironing board, desk and stationary, etc. The restaurant here also serves up enticing organic dishes, and the menu has something to please all tastes.
Function Fixers are able to give you the opportunity to enjoy all of this at a bargain package price. Just £169pp (based on two people sharing on a weekday or a Saturday) will buy you an oveight stay in a romantic luxury room, with a mouth-watering breakfast the next day. You’ll also have £50 to spend on the spa treatment of your choice, £30 towards your evening meal and access to the entire spa from 1pm on the date of arrival, to checkout time (1pm) the next day. If you book on a Sunday, you’ll receive a room, roast dinner and a full English breakfast. Along with this, you can also have a complimentary back, neck and shoulder massage, a cleansing facial and £30 to spend in the restaurant for lunch before you make your way back to everyday life.
