The Retreat at Blantyre

Simple luxury in the Berkshires
Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
In keeping with the theme of Blantyre, The Retreat at Blantyre is simple, quaint and perfectly luxurious. You'll find room to work out, shower, enjoy a sauna or steam, take a dip in the Jacuzzi or just lounge on the plush relaxation chairs before or after your treatment.

Set in the footprint of Blantyre's original greenhouses, The Retreat is a meditative sanctuary surrounded by the estate's gardens. The spa itself is small, and it's open when you want it to be (call ahead to reserve services), which adds to its personalized ambiance. We suggest you book a service mid-morning, then enjoy lunch in your robe at the spa.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • At Blantyre, no request is too complicated, so if you’d like something to eat at the spa, you simply need to order it. Enjoy your breakfast or lunch while relaxing in your robe and slippers in the lounge.
  • With only three treatment rooms, including the manicure and pedicure room, you’ll have privacy at The Retreat, making it easier to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
  • If you're visiting Blantyre during the winter months, we highly suggest spending a few hours enjoying the atmosphere of the relaxation area. Thanks to the full windows that wrap around the indoor space, you'll feel like you're inside a snow globe when the flakes start to fall.
  • The indoor terrace lounge is flooded with light from walls of windows offering views of the stunning Blantyre grounds. With wicker chairs, wood-paneled walls and decorative touches like painted urns, The Retreat’s lounge feels intimate and completely comforting.
  • The treatment rooms have a rustic-chic country vibe with rustic wood walls and gingham curtains that cover the windows.
Things to Know
  • Blantyre's spa and fitness center area features a Vitality Bar where guests can help themselves to treats like coffee, tea, infused water, nuts, fruit and ice cream bars. We especially like the ice cream — an indulgent treat you won’t find at other spas.
  • Blantyre's small gym is also located in The Retreat, adjacent to the spa check-in desk. There are only a couple treadmills, ellipticals and bike machines, all with their own TV screens, however, the room makes it easy to squeeze in a quick workout before treating yourself to some serious spa time.
  • There’s no strict order of events at this small spa, so feel free to change and enjoy the hot tub, fitness center or sauna before your treatment.
The Treatments
  • For 60 or 90 minutes, you can enjoy an aromatic massage that combines specific massage techniques with pure essential oils from Aromatherapy Associates of England. You can also pick your aromatherapy with your spa therapist.
  • Everyone's skin is different, so the customized facial is always a good option for those needing some intimate skin care. The facial can be booked for 60 or 90 minutes and includes a deep cleansing, exfoliation and extraction followed by a facial massage and finishing mask.
  • The 90-minute Hydrating Seaweed Wrap uses a blend of seaweed plant extract and natural oils to aid in the removal of toxins and impurities. Then you're placed in a relaxing Vichy shower to rinse the seaweed from your skin.
  • Tired feet need a bit of pampering, which is why we love the rose pedicure. The two-hour foot focus includes a classic pedicure with the addition of rose, sandalwood, jojoba and evening primrose oils and creams to nourish your feet and legs.
The Facilities
  • Before or after your spa treatments, sit for a bit in the glass-enclosed heated pool area. The veranda houses lounge chairs and a few tables, and the hot tub overlooks the grounds of Blantyre, providing a quiet and serene environment.
  • The locker rooms at The Retreat at Blantyre are renovated bathrooms that include six lockers, a shower and bathroom amenities. You'll find a hairdryer, hairspray, spray deodorant, shaving razors, soap, shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the locker room to help you freshen up after a pampering session.
  • The quiet space invites you to relax, and the spa is full of nooks to do just that, including a cushy window seat across from check-in — the soft seating is cushioned with velvet pillows and flanked by magazines and books.
  • Spend some time in the lavender-filled Meditation Garden pre- or post-treatment to help you unwind. You can even grab a sprig or two to tuck into your clothes or under your pillow for a more restful night's sleep. 
  • Start or end your journey in the relaxation room, a quiet space stocked with cozy throws, plush chairs and scenic views of the estate grounds.
