Wedding gifting etiquette - your guide from the experts
When it comes to wedding planning, there is so much to think about, the same goes for wedding...
Berkshire's Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa, known for its luxury spa experiences, has announced its new spa packages for 2024. Crafted to remedy some of January's most common ailments, whether it's to help kickstart that healthy lifestyle goal set for the new year, or to combat the symptoms of SAD, Donnington Valley's cosy atmosphere, welcoming staff and idyllic countryside location is sure to help its guests start the year with some spring in their step.
Located one and a half hours from central London, Donnington Valley provides the perfect setting for a January wellness retreat. It's thought the winter blues, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), affects around 2 million people in the UK. As the long, dark winter months take their toll, Donnington Valley has created its new package, the Sunny D Spa Break to get some much-needed sunshine into guest's lives! Curated to infuse as much Vitamin D into the body as possible, this fabulous spa break includes Vitamin-rich meals, as well as two treatments providing the perfect new year tonic:
The Aqua Sun Treatment is an immersive experience that replicates that holiday feeling to restore serotonin and Vitamin D levels. Guests bathe in warm water while air jets gently massage the body to boost circulation, disperse toxins and nourish dry skin conditions. Above, a low-level UV drenches guests with light, a fine source of vitamin D that is particularly good for treating seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and promoting a sense of well-being. If that's not enough, guests can also enjoy a 45-minute LED facial. Designed to work alongside Germaine de Capuccini products, it improves and maximises results with intense light therapy to stimulate tissue regeneration.
The Sunny D Spa Break includes:
A vitamin-packed smoothie
A 25-minute Aqua Sun treatment
A 45-minute Germaine de Capuccini LED facial
Time to relax in the spa from 3 pm on the day of arrival to 11 am on the day of departure

The break also includes delicious, warming food, and spa access throughout guests' visits as well as vitamin-rich treatments for the perfect post-Christmas detox feeling.
