Luxurious, revitalising and a chance to recuperate – a visit to The Spa at Silver Bay is the first word in relaxation

To make sure our guests receive a superlative spa experience time and time again, we’re constantly developing our treatments to ebb and flow with new techniques and ever-changing trends. That’s why we’re proud to announce a brand new brochure this summer brimming with treatments you’ll be desperate to try!

 

Discover Our New Spa Treatments

If you’ve visited our spa before, then you’ll already be aware of our partnership with ELEMIS. Few match this stunning brand when it comes to skincare, so we’ve crafted a Treatment Menu for you to enjoy based all around these fantastic products.

The Spa at Silver Bay - Relaxation

Body

We have a myriad of body therapy options that you’re sure to fall in love. From our ELEMIS Body Nectar Nourishing Wrap to our ELEMIS Thousand Flower Detox Wrap, we have a treatment designed to suit your body.

Each therapy has been crafted to enrich your skin with salts, oils and creams, as well as being individually designed to target key skin problems our spa visitors face.

If you’re looking to detox, or reduce cellulite, our ELEMIS Targeted Toning Tightening is the perfect option. Combining a powerful blend of massage technique and detoxifying clay, it’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite after just one treatment.

We also offer body therapy in the form of massages, couture and treatments designed to boost your energy. On top of this, there’s even a pregnancy session designed to restore mothers-to-be to optimum wellness.

 

Face

Our faces put up with a lot over time. From being lathered in various lotions and potions, to facing the bare cold (or heat) without enough protection – your face should never be neglected when it comes to visiting the spa.

At the Spa at Silver Bay, we have a range of anti-ageing therapies on offer which prove ever popular, with prices starting from £60. Why not enjoy a ELEMIS pro-collagen age defy session, or perhaps you’d prefer an ELEMIS pro-definition lift & contour? Each treatment lasts an hour in total and well help to reduce wrinkles, skin firmness and puffiness.

And our face therapies don’t end there. We also provide a selection of treatments perfect for treating your skin. Our ELEMIS Sensitive Skin Smoother is ideal for those with a sensitive complexion, and our ELEMIS Anti-Blemish Mattify & Calm does exactly what it says on the tin.

Of course, treatments aren’t just for women at our spa. We have a special section in the our brochure dedicated entirely to relaxatio sessions for men.

From our ELEMIS High Performance Skin Energiser, to our Hot Mineral Body Boost and Deep Tissue Massage, we make sure our spa treatments can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what your gender.

 

Beauty

Therapy treatments aside, beauty is another of our Spa at Silver Bay specialties. We provide fashionable Shellac manicures, as well as waxing and tinting for eyebrows. We also wax legs, bikini lines and even male chest and backs, too.

Futhermore, we offer a package for all you holiday-seekers out there. This session has been expertly crafted so that it focuses on all of these key holiday areas. Featuring a half leg, under arm and eyebrow wax – as well as a bikini wax – you’ll be ready to have some fun in the sun in no time! (And it only costs £30!)

Christmas-and-NYE-Welsh-Traditions-Silver-Bay-Holiday-Village-1280x853.jpg

Each culture has different Christmas traditions, it’s part of what makes the festive time of year so rich in diversity and so full of wonder. And just like there are particular traditions practiced in Ireland, England and Scotland – there are also some Welsh Christmas traditions that people should enjoy!

If you’re planning on celebrating the festive period on Anglesey this season, then we suggest you take a little look below and integrate some Welsh practices into your Christmas celebrations. They’ll certainly add a new, yet old, spin on the most magical time of year!

Plygain

What would Christmas be without carols? Well, in Wales caroling is traditionally a little different.

Taking place early Christmas morning, between 3am and 6am, to be precise, people would gather in local churches and sing their hearts out during the 19th century.

They usually stayed awake throughout the night ready for the early morning carols – and although we think the tiredness may have put a bit of a damper on Christmas day itself, why not have a little sing song with the family before bed this year?

Plygain also still occasionally happens, meaning that if you really want to take part this year you can! Churches famed for it include St David’s Bishop’s Palace, so be sure to seek out those in your local area for something a bit different.

Welsh Christmas Toffee

Welsh Christmas Toffee

We all love a few extra sweet treats during Christmas time, and so to do our friends in Wales.  In fact, they often made toffee an integral part of their celebrations in years gone by.

On Toffee Evening, also known as Noson Gyfraith, friends and families would get together at one another’s houses and play games, have food, tell stories and make toffee over the fire.

It was popular during the late 19th century, so why not have a go at making your own this Christmas? It’ll certainly invite a little bit of Welsh festive charm into your lodge. You can also nip to the supermarket and pick some up if you want to take a little shortcut. We promise we won’t tell anyone!

Calennig

In Wales, the Halloween tradition of Trick or Treating was actually something that happened during the festive period. On New Year’s Day, between dawn and noon, children would go from door to door with good wishes for the new year, and in some cases, they would sing and splash people with water. They would then be given a gift for their troubles, usually loose change.

We don’t recommend your children continue this tradition in 2017 as it hasn’t been practiced since the early 19th century – but it might be nice to wish each other well and buy gifts for New Year’s Day.

We can’t think of a lovelier start to the new year.

Holming

Not all Welsh Christmas traditions are particularly pleasant, and one of the less favourable festive customs lies within ‘holming.’ This tradition also took place during the early 19th century, and you wouldn’t have wanted to be the last one to get out of bed on Boxing Day!

If you were, you would be beaten with prickly holly sprigs. As you can imagine, this is something that is certainly not practiced any longer. But if you want to make fun of the last person out of bed on boxing day, we recommend a friendly little hair-ruffle. Perhaps even a snuggly hug!

New Year’s Eve Drinks

Festive drink at NYE

There are four staples of a modern-day New Year’s Eve. Family, friends, food, and last but not least, something to whet your whistle! And as you can imagine, there also used to be a traditional Welsh drink created at NYE that people enjoyed.

This tradition actually has roots back to Tudor customs, where people drank from patterned Wassail bowls. They’d be full to the top with tasty sugar, fruit, spices and warm beer. Yum!

Why not try making your own version for New Year’s Eve? Everyone loves a good punch, and it’s a great way to toast 2017 with those you care about.
