Imagine Spa Cambridge: Discovering that all important “me time”

Imagine Spa Cambridge: Me time

I am forty. I don’t like admitting to be forty, let alone acknowledging that in a month’s time I will actually be 41…somehow I forgot that turning 40 last year meant that I had actually joined the band of mothers that are “in their forties” I have learnt in the last five years that it is absolutely critical for all of us to give ourselves a break from the hamster wheel, and take some me time. I was lucky enough to be able to go to Imagine Spa Cambridge to give myself and a friend a little bit of time to think.

Sometimes this rather sums me up….other than the bit where I am actually 40…

me time to make you feel 20 again

There are still days when I feel like I am 20, and then I realise that it just ain’t so. Usually when I somehow end up watching a One Direction video with my daughter and can’t help thinking:

“Don’t they look young…”

There is nothing like a good Spa day though to reinvigorate oneself, and Imagine Spa in Cambridge provided us with a discount to allow me to take a wonderful day to myself. I was very impressed with the choice and prices of the treatments; from traditional spa day options, to a number of different beauty treatments as well. There was very much something for everyone.

I decided to have an aromatherapy bath, and a much needed pedicure and gel. My feet don’t get an easy ride. My companion had a manicure, pedicare, a mini facial and a session within their flotation tank. We were also lucky enough to experience the serail mud chamber as well. We were given two free hour long treatments with the package that we had opted for; an Enrich Experience at £129 for the day.

Relaxing was an understatement – just thinking about it all has made me sleepy and chilled ;-)

The staff were friendly, and extremely flexible about what treatments we wanted, when they could do them, and even when our lunch could be served. There was a lovely choice of food which we were able to eat in the entrance of the spa or outside on the veranda. This was, in all honesty, the only downside. It would have been nice to have a restaurant onsite. However, even its location and the set-up of the spa, I could understand why this wasn’t practical.

The other factilities onsite were stunning…particularly the swimming pool….

…and the treatment rooms. Each room is themed around a flower – and my “rose room” for my pedicure even had a roses waiting for me on entry. Simple but effective touches that really made us feel pampered.

We had an absolute ball there; time to chat, chill and pamper ourselves, which as busy working mums neither of us get to do that often at all.

We liked it so much, we booked our free half day, which were were given upon leaving (great marketing tool!) only a week later. Sadly due to work commitments, we had to cancel, but I can assure you I am going to make every effort to go back again. Even if it means roping in the husband to babysit again ;-)

We were given 50% off the total cost of the spa day, and the serail mud chamber treatment for the purpose of writing this review, but all opinions are my own. I really do want to do back; now in fact…

Have you been to the Imagine Spa in Cambridge, if you have let us know – what did you think?

Soothing music plays softly in the background as your massage therapist begins to work away the stress of your busy day-to-day responsibilities, in a relaxing quiet atmosphere... Thanks for sharing this post. :-)

Hi Helen;

This place looks amazing. My sister lives in Cambridge perhaps next time I visit her I may treat us to some 'me' time. Do you know what products they use?

And I'm sure that you've stepped on a stray lego at some point - I know I have and it hurts.

Thanks in advance
