Wales’ largest spa has taken the traditional gift of a dozen red roses and given it a unique twist by developing a one-off massage treatment inspired by the ancient symbol of love and beauty.

The Dozen Red Roses Massage takes warm oils, infused with the sweet fragrance of pure rose, to deliver a relaxing, all over body massage. The treatment is finished off with a glass of bubbly.

The treatment has been personally developed by the Resort’s spa manager, Claire Caddick, who is always trying to offer clients spa treatments with a twist.

Gents haven’t been forgotten and while their partner is being pampered, can enjoy a Mood Enhancing Massage which works warm tangerine and patchouli oil deep into the muscles of the back, easing out stress and tension.
