The annual Good Spa Guide Awards, in association with Temple Spa, took place on the 13th November 2018. It was a wonderful evening packed full of Champagne and celebration for spas all across the UK.
The Regional Awards went to the most highly-rated spas in each area based on The Spa Spies’ reviews, Bubble Ratings and audits. The Reader’s Choice National Awards were voted for by spa lovers across the UK.
Without further ado, here are the winning spas guaranteed to make your next spa trip extra special.

Best Spa in the South East
With fantastic facilities – think five-star hotel, award-winning restaurant – and a spa with a tremendous range of well thought-out treatments and exceptional customer service, Pennyhill really does deserve its place on the spa pedestal. It's jaw-droppingly vast with eight pools, the most impressive being a 25-metre ballroom pool with underwater music. If you’re staying long enough (you can come just for the day), dinner is a must.
Best Spa in the South West

Travel up a long, tree-lined driveway to an impressive host of facilities, including stunning indoor and outdoor pools, a beautiful spa with luxurious treatments, an equestrian centre, tennis courts and Michelin-starred Park restaurant. Wet and thermal facilities include a Japanese salt room, aromatherapy room, salt-water pool and hydrotherapy pool.
Best Spa in the Channel Islands
The newly-refurbished St Pierre Park Spa, set in 35 acres of manicured gardens on the picturesque island of Guernsey, is as modern as they come with a large and lovely outside space.

Staying overnight? Check out the restaurant with its fine dining menu.
Best Spa in the West Midlands and South Wales
