Hidden in the Wicklow mountains in the grounds of the Summerhill Country House Hotel lies The Rainforest Spa + Studio. We sent one of the team to go check it out.
Following the launch of its yoga studio in October last year, Rainforest Spa promises to be your ‘modern self-care destination for body + mind’. WellFest marketing manager Annabelle Price went to try it out. Read on for our review plus an exciting giveaway!
It’s not often we take time out for ourselves, so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to visit the Rainforest Spa + Studio in Enniskerry, County Wicklow. The spa is a surprisingly short drive from Dublin, it took me less than half an hour to reach the calming surroundings of the Wicklow mountains. I was instantly taken back by the stunning views from the spa, it really is the perfect location to take a break from it all.
What’s on offer
The Rainforest team added a wellness studio to the premises last October. And what a great addition it is. The small but cosy studio features huge glass windows overlooking the mountains and is a beautifully serene setting to practice yoga and Pilates in.
My trip started with a yoga class which I floated out of before heading to the day spa. I then relaxed in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the mountains and tried out the infrared and Swedish saunas. My trip finished with a gorgeous back massage which I didn’t want to end!
There’s so much on offer at the spa, from cutting edge facials to brow microblading and pregnancy massages. They were also recently named Ireland’s first certified cancer aware salon. Rainforest cancer care treatments are for men and women and are endorsed by the Irish Cancer Society as a beneficial complementary therapy to go hand-in-hand with – and not a replacement for – conventional medical treatment.
They also sell their own signature body oil candles and have a great selection of Lululemon apparel to buy.
