We recently had the pleasure of visiting Solent Hotel and Spa in Fareham. Located in Hampshire between Portsmouth and Southampton, we think it would be a fabulous retreat for a fun hen weekend with the girls. It’s close to the shopping centre, sea and countryside, and has really good transport links to get you around.
The hotel is fresh and contemporary with a nautical theme; staff are dressed in fun nautical uniforms and there’s a coastal vibe that runs throughout. It’s a great place to enjoy spending time with friends, relaxing with your other half or a special day out with your mum.
The spa has been refurbished and offers a tranquil retreat, perfect for a spot of indulgent pampering for you and your tribe. It has eight treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge, manicure and pedicure stations, gym and pool, so there’s plenty to keep you well relaxed! The Solent Hotel offers a range of packages including Hen Party and Honeymoon options as well as Spa Escape overnight stays, which we really like the look of for a quick break. The couples treatment room would be perfect for a mini-moon or just for a moment away from all the wedding planning! It even has its own private hot tub terrace.
A spa day package begins with refreshments in the relaxation area before indulging in a spa treatment or relaxing in the pool, sauna or steam room. After a two-course light lunch, you can continue your day of rejuvenating relaxation.
If you fancy staying the night, get ready for 24 hours of pampering! Dinner, accommodation and breakfast are included in your escape. You can even extend your stay to 48 hours with their two-night retreat.
They also offer a Sunday Night Serenity break, perfect if you need a moment to prepare for the week ahead, or if you’ve been tramping round the countryside all weekend! You can arrive after midday and use the spa facilities as well as having a taster treatment and afternoon tea. Overnight accommodation and breakfast are included, and you can continue your relaxation the next morning.
The beautiful spa has not only won a World Luxury Spa Award 2018 as part of the House of Daniel Thwaites group but has an exclusive new partnership with French skincare brand Caudalie.
