A Review of the Wellness Spa at Landal Gwel an Mor Spa
Earlier this week I had a pretty amazing treatment at the Landal Gwel an Mor Wellbeing spa. A treatment that had me so relaxed, I really struggled to stay awake for the rest of the afternoon and evening!
The Gwel an Mor spa is quite small, but has everything you need there, including wonderful heated treatment beds, a fantastic power shower inside the treatment rooms and access to the swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna and steam room.
The treatment rooms have some very colourful mood lighting that really makes for a relaxing atmosphere. The chilled-out atmosphere was further aided by my lovely beauty therapist Kylie, who was so friendly and welcoming. She also has magic hands.
The treatment that I opted for was the Marine Energy treatment – currently priced at £67. The Marine Energy includes a sea salt exfoliating ritual and hot towels to get the ingredients in the seawater gel that they use working. Being exfoliated was a lot more relaxing than it sounds and the hot towels felt so good.
I have no idea why I have waited until my mid thirties to try spa treatments out, as I now know that I have been seriously missing out all these years. After my exfoliation I was asked to use the shower in the room to wash the excess salt off of my body before the next stage of the treatment which involved some massage and moisturising. The shower was, as I have already said fantastic and whilst I was in there, Kylie re-set the bed up ready to pamper me some more.
As part of the Marine Energy treatment in the Wellness Spa, I could also choose either a scalp/head or a foot massage. Since I wasn’t heading straight home I chose the foot massage, rather than walk around with messy hair. I was a little bit dubious about the idea, since my feet are so ticklish no one has ever been allowed to touch them before! However, I was really pleasantly surprised to discover that a foot massage feels pretty amazing and not ticklish at all. The skin on my feet is also so soft now, with none of the horrible winter induced rough skin that they had on them before.
Afterwards once I had dragged myself off of that heated bed and gotten myself dressed, I was given a bit of a tour of Gwel an Mor. I had never been there before and I was really surprised by the sheer size of the place and all the facilities that they have there. I certainly wasn’t expecting to see reindeer and birds of prey! At Feadon Farm on site they also have tame foxes and other animals!
The weather wasn’t playing ball as usual on my tour and my big camera isn’t a fan of the rain – are mini camera umbrellas a thing?! Anyway grey skies aren’t especially appealing to look at in photos either, so here are a couple of stock images provided from Gwel an Mor to show you just how gorgeous the accommodation there is!
They look so welcoming don’t they?! Definitely my idea of the perfect sort of accommodation for a cosy holiday. They look gorgeous inside too, I had a sneaky peek during my tour of a couple of the unoccupied ones. Basically they all reminded me of my dream home, which is kind of the impact/impression you hope for when you enter your holiday home.
They also have a golf course, fishing lake, fantastic soft play with clip ‘n climb and more there. I have to admit I am a little bit in love with Gwel an Mor full stop, as you might have guessed from what a tangent my spa review has gone on!
Pop to the Gwel an Mor site to check out more about the site and pop to the Gwel an Mor Wellbeing Spa section to see what other wonderful spa treatments there are and to see how to book them. I really do recommend booking in for a treatment at the Wellness Spa at Landal Gwel an Mor, just make sure you don’t have a lot of plans in place for afterwards, as you’ll most likely be fancying a nap instead!
