Shandon Hotel Spa & Wellness - NEW - 08 Jul 2009

A little more magic in Donegal.

We're very biased towards Co. Donegal, not least because we get to spend time there thanks to a generous sibling who has a holiday home in the area which they let us use from time to time, but mainly because it has some of the most amazing beaches in the country. Yes, it's an effort to get there but with improved roads, it's not that hard and it's inevitably worth it.

The Shandon Hotel Spa & Wellness is one of those places where the whole family can relax. Overlooking the stunning Sheephaven Bay and steps away from Marble Hill Strand, it's a place to chill, forget about the world and simply enjoy this natural environment.

The Spa is a surprise. Set a little removed from the hotel itself, it's a complete oasis of health and beauty. The vitality area comes equipped with aromatherapy showers, herbal sauna, salt grotto, and of course, a spacious vitality pool with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea. There are 8 purpose built treatment rooms with soft lighting, soft towels and comfortable masseuse beds.

A wide range of natural treatments and therapies is offered, some are from traditions centuries old and others reflect the latest discoveries in rejuvenation therapies. The Spa uses Repechage products, an exclusive range of skin care and body products, all seaweed based, very fitting for the environment in question.
