The ultimate wellness guide for 2019


At Princesshay we have just the tonic to cure those winter blues: book a holiday, get a holistic treatment, nourish yourself and read good books

Escape to the sun

Can’t stand winter any longer? Book a late holiday deal in our Virgin Holidays boutique or line up a break for spring. For example, a favourite hotel in Thailand is the Centara Grand Beach Resort and Villas Hua Hin (pictured). Fly from London Heathrow, stay from 15th March-23 March, for £1,232 per person (price subject to change).

Treatments for you

Our Neal’s Yard treatment room offers massages (aromatherapy, Indian Head, deep tissue, hot stone, Swedish and more) as well as facials, herbal medicine and more. For the New Year, the life coaching may also help you press the reset button on your life. Or try a treatment you’ve not experienced before, such as Ayurveda, an Indian holistic healing system that can focus on rejuvenation to build energy.

Hair and beauty refresh

Saks Exeter hairdressing and beauty salon can re-style your hair, give your colour a lift and advise on the best hair looks for 2019. The extensive beauty menu lists winter pick-me-ups such as tanning and glam make-up, and since it’s January when we detox and lose weight, why not try the body contouring? Whatever you choose, it’ll leave you feeling fabulous!

The Veganuary challenge

Try Veganuary for health, the environment, nutrition and for the love of animals. For tasty vegan Asian food come to Wagamama for the Vegatsu curry, tofu glass noodle salad and soups swirling with a rainbow of vegetables. See Wagamama’s vegan menu.

Immune-boosting drinks

Get your five (or seven fruit and veg) a day. Giraffe World Kitchen blends fresh fruit to make its healthy smoothies. There are five on the drinks menu, including Mango Mama with strawberry and banana. It’s also worth going to Holland & Barrett’s January sales and stocking up on juices such as Aloe, cherry, beetroot and goji that are full of nutrients.

The reading cure

Lower your stress hormones by reading. Curling up with a good book is time well spent and Oliver Bonas has stacks of self-help books for everyone. Find a path to happiness, indulge in self-care, be more lucky and rediscover the joy of a good bedtime story. Make 2019 a year for wellness.
