A Spa Day with Friends- Our competition winners’ story.

We recently ran a competition via the Atlantic Hotel’s social media to find four friends to enjoy a luxury spa day at our Ocean View Treatment Room, and become the face of our spa.

We wanted to capture images of real friends enjoying our exclusive facilities, bespoke treatments and award winning food and drink.

 The response was phenomenal! Our competition really seemed to strike a chord on social media, with 100s of entries from women nominating themselves and their friends.

Stories of joy, heartbreak, overcoming all odds, women celebrating their size, 4 generations of families wanting to spend a day together, and much more were shared with us, and above all, our entrants recognising that they deserve some time!

Choosing our winners was such a hard task! After laughing, crying, and feeling inspired by so many stories, we finally chose 4 friends………

Meet Carol, Natalie, Sophia and Emma.

We loved the fact that they have been friends for over 20 years and had been trying to organize a spa day, being busy mums taking some time out to enjoy some time together as friends was really important to them.

We were proud to announce them “The Face of our Spa” and invited them to enjoy a special spa day and photo shoot by nationally acclaimed photographer Mike Searle.

Four very excited ladies were shown to our exclusive spa, and welcome Atlantic themed cocktails were ordered, spa introduction forms were filled in, and after changing into their fluffy robes, our photographer got some shots of the ladies by the pool and in the hot tub looking out to sea. Lots of giggles, and selfies were taken and we left the girls to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views and relaxing spa facilities, including our heated pool, sauna and steam room.

 

Our Therapist Patsy Bevan performed her signature “Soothe your Mind Body and Soul” back treatments using the relaxing combination oils of Lavender and Chamomile from The Cornish Trevarno Organic Skin Care.

The treatments allowed the ladies to spend time nourishing themselves free from their busy lives and children.

One of our ladies decided to have her nails painted using Zoya Nail Varnish that is also free from all formeldhahyde and harsh chemicals.

With an amazing view, Our Ocean View Treatment Room is pure luxury not to be missed!!

Our ladies opted to stay in their fluffy robes for lunch, which was served in our sea view Café Atlantica, main meals from our extensive specially created spa menu were ordered, with a few more extra cocktails for good measure. Well, you don’t win a luxury spa day every day so celebrations were in order!

Our lovely ladies really did represent our spa beautifully, with images showing friendship and fun that models just cannot match!

Carol said “Thank you & The Atlantic hotel for our amazing day and the opportunity.

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend the hotel and staff.

Beautiful memories made in a beautiful location”.

Our Celebrity Guest- Austin Armacost

We welcomed Celebrity Big Brother runner up and ALLSTAR Austin Armacost on our VIP Spa Package this month.

Read our exclusive interview on his first impression of Cornwall, his thoughts on our Hotel, and his 2017 plans……

Austin, We hear this has been your first visit to Cornwall, what do you think?

I found it beautiful even though it was a bit of a foggy day. The fresh sea air blew through the windows and rejuvenated me every couple of minutes. Listening to the sea gulls outside the window also just added to the coastal ambiance. The people were also extremely friendly, inviting, and entertaining. 

You certainly deserve a VIP Spa break after such a busy start to the year- what made you choose the Atlantic Hotel?

First and foremost was the price. I am always nervous about finding a “package deal” that seems to have everything you need with an incredible price. However, the Atlantic went above and beyond in all aspects (food, treatment, facilities) and I thought what a wonderful weekend getaway. The Atlantic is much more than just a hotel & spa… You can truly spend the entire day on the property with so many amenities at your fingertips.

As part of your Spa package, you enjoyed lunch in our AA Rosette Restaurant, Silks- what did you order?

We started with the oysters and followed with the belly pork and sea bass pasta. Everything was hot, tasty, and done with it’s own twist. The champagne and wine selection was impressive. The dining room itself also offered a view everywhere you turned and so much natural light. I enjoyed several cocktails throughout the day sitting in different parts of the dining room / bar area. 

We hope our Spa treatment left you relaxed and refreshed, what was the best bit?

I had a full body massage and enjoyed every second and every inch of it. She was calming and relaxing herself and that helped me to relax. Also getting a massage while overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is something I had never done, PRICELESS! Then taking a dip into to the pool and jacuzzi truly helped me get into a “zen zone.” 

Any exciting plans for the year ahead we should know about?

Unfortunately in my business (television) we aren’t always aloud to discuss upcoming projects but you will be seeing me on television again soon. I also am singing with a new film agent in London so may be on the big screen here in the UK sooner than later. In my personal life, my partner and I are headed to America in a few days for him to meet my family for the first time. 

*Big thanks to the entire staff as it was lovely from check in to check out, well done team Atlantic!

Our VIP Spa Break is available until 7th April 2017
