I often get asked about good spas especially at this time of year when people are gift-shopping. Who wouldnt like to receive a voucher for a bit of new year pampering? My advice is that you cant go wrong with The Sanctuary. Theyve recently expanded nationwide from their very successful Covent Garden outpost, making their Time for you voucher an even better bet. Included is day spa admission, a 50 minute face or body treatment, lunch (with the all-important champagne no one said this was about denial) and a little kit of products to take away. Youll be giving the gift not just of time but of utter bliss and who would want to re-gift that?
