On Tuesday 31st May I got to go to my very first bloggers event, a trip to Alexandra House Spa in Birkby, Huddersfield to see the newly launched Thermal Rooms inspired by Roman Bathhouses. I’d never actually been to a spa before but Alexandra House Spa offers relaxation and treatments with comfort and mental stability at its heart.
Alexandra House Spa, founded by Dr Maxine Stead, aims to use spa treatments to rejuvenate the body and mind and to feed a spiritual side. Offering holistic health and wellbeing services and treatments, Alexandra House Spa offers a secret sanctuary where you can receive inner peace.
Upon arrival we were greeted with Prosecco and canapes and were allowed to walk around the whole spa. In addition to meeting Dr Maxine Stead herself, we were also offered a complimentary Hot Parrafin Wax Hand Treatment and were treated with goodie bags filled with cute ornaments and luxury spa samples.

One of the most exciting parts of the evening, however, was viewing the new thermal rooms ahead of their launch on June the 1st. Although we could stroll around at leisure the thermal rooms were the first port of call and we could even sit on the heated seats and feel the heat rise through the chairs and into our bodies.
The two thermal rooms are inspired by Roman Bathhouses as evident from the mosaic decorations. The Tepidarium Thermal Room boasts a Himalayan Salt Wall that has its own health benefits, whereas the Laconium Thermal Room features heated tiled loungers imported from Germany to heat the back and base of the spine through the curved shape.
Alexandra House Spa also offers holistic health treatments including Aromatherapy, Reiki and Reflexology. The spa avoids clocks and phones to provide a timeless, relaxing retreat away from the stresses of everyday life.
Within the Relaxation Room adorned with comfortable couches and spiritual decor, we were also treated with a Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment. The treatment utilises hot wax to moisturise and soften the hands and I have to say it really did make me feel pampered and relaxed!
The remainder of the spa consists of several relaxation and therapy rooms teamed with the picturesque garden with water fountain features and flowers.
Speaking out about the thermal rooms, Dr Maxine Stead, founder of Alexandra Spa, said:
“The rooms are designed to aid meditation, calm energy and create harmony, not only in their look and feel – think exposed stone work, soft lighting, gentle music, calming aromas and relaxing loungers – but also through the dry heat and air cleansing ability of the Himalayan salt, which is the purest salt on earth and known to significantly diminish the symptoms of respiratory issues such as asthma and seasonal allergies. Our vision has always been to offer the best treatments to our clients and we believe that these thermal rooms bring an unrivalled extension to our spa experience.”
Overall, Alexandra House Spa is a beautiful retreat, perfect for those who need to get away and take a well deserved break. Whether it’s skincare treatments, aromatherapy or a need to relax, Alexandra House Spa can offer you everything you need and more. Thank you to Alexandra House Spa and Faith PR for having us!
