Aztec Spa

Muddy says: We’ve a lotta love for this quirky Aztec-themed spa. It’s just the place for a chill-day with your gals, a pre-holiday tan or a mind and body-boosting Elemis treatment. Book me in for the Targeted Toning Tightener, please!

Whether the Aztecs enjoyed a spa spruce-up, I guess we’ll never know, but I do know you’ll love Aztec Spa if you like Elemis smellies, Shellac-painted toes and St Tropez top-ups. Its location of Torquay’s Carlton Hotel is a reliable 3-star family hotel (with evening entertainment and great facilities for kids), but what makes Aztec different is its unique relaxation area with its rainforest vibe, complete with 2-D jungle backdrop and Mayan panpipes to soothe your buzzing brain. It’s a million miles away from more clinical places, where white walls and minimalism is the order of the day.

Their signature treatment is a Biotec facial, perfect for gently zapping your skin back into shape after too many late nights, or how about a Twilight Treat (Robert Pattinson not included) – four hours of spa chillin’ and a 30-minute treatment for a very reasonable £49.

And there’s the huuuge 25m pool (it’s shared with hotel guests, but if you pick your time right you can dodge the nippers). For gym-bunnies, there is a fitness suite with Netflix, or if you’re just looking for a spa-day where you can raise a glass of bubbles with your girlies, this is your place.
