Carey’s Manor Hotel & SenSpa Review

 SenSpa 1

Carey’s Manor Hotel & SenSpa, located in the New Forest, is a place that I’ve wanted to visit for quite some time now. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that a few weeks ago my wish was fulfilled, as I celebrated my birthday in this beautiful haven with my friend Alex.

From the moment we arrived, we found ourselves lounging around in robes and slippers, and that’s exactly how we remained for two days, only breaking to get dressed up for dinner on the first night. Most of our time was spent in SenSpa, which boasts luxury spa facilities, including the Large Hydrotherapy Pool, Herbal Sauna, Crystal Steam Room, Laconicum, Tepidarium, Experience Showers, Health Showers, Ice Room, Ozone Swimming Pool, Rhassoul Mud Room, Hammam Rooms, Vichy Showers, Relaxation Room, Quiet Room, Thai Temple Studio, Gymnasium, 18 Luxurious Treatment Rooms, SenSpa Boutique and Zen Garden Restaurant. As you can probably imagine, neither of us wanted to leave.

 I have to say, SenSpa really took my breath away. This Thai inspired sanctuary has the most beautiful interior I’ve seen in a long time. I loved everything about it, and you only have to look at my pictures to see what I mean. The spa is by no means small, yet every room you go in feels cosy, with a tranquil atmosphere. One thing I particularly noticed was the blissful smell of aromatherapy oils. As I was guided through several rooms by my Therapist, I was hit by scents, of what I believe to be Geranium, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang. It’s so relaxing. I couldn’t help but zone right out. By the time my Essential Relaxation massage was finished, I was in a pure state of bliss.

As with the spa, the hotel itself does not disappoint. On arrival we were given two full sized SenSpa products each, which I thought was a lovely touch. The room we stayed in, had gorgeous interior and an outdoor patio area overlooking the garden. (Alex upgraded our room for my birthday, which I thought was really sweet). We had dinner in The Zen Garden restaurant, and breakfast in The Manor Restaurant, and the food was lovely in both.

I’m not usually a fan of old fashioned interior at all, opting for a more contemporary look every time when refurbishing my own home, but Carey’s Manor have created something quite special. They’ve mixed the two together, and I love it! I think this is the kind of place where you will discover something new each time you go, and I can’t wait to go back there and explore some more. I feel as though I’ve discovered the perfect escape.
