A new year means a new you. So what better way to feel refreshed than a day pampering yourself at a Birmingham spa? If your back is clogged up with knots or your hair has seen better days – fret not! There are plenty of amazing places around Birmingham to relax and unwind. It’s time to give your body the care it is screaming out for. We’ve rounded up some of the very best spas in Birmingham to treat yourself. Because the last few months have been hard and, let’s admit it, years too. We all deserve a pamper session or two.
1. Santai Spa
Santai – the Malaysian word for ‘peace and tranquillity’ – uses an ancient Wu Xing philosophy that harmony is essential to one’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. Situated in the Genting Hotel, everything from massages and facials to the outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake feeds into this philosophy.
Go for a dip in the swimming pool, with hot-stone loungers and hydrotherapy jets, have a gentle workout in the gym, and unclog those pores in the sauna. You can even enjoy a well-deserved afternoon tea afterwards!

2. Amala Spa
When trapped in the hustle and bustle of Birmingham City Centre, Amala Spa can offer some respite. This urban day spa, located within the Hyatt Regency, is home to a Turkish hammam also known as a hot bath. Slightly different from a traditional thermal spa, a hammam treatment uses hot steam instead of thermal water to encourage a deeper cleanse. If you prefer a little more privacy, Amala Spa also has secluded Hammam treatment rooms for traditional Turkish therapies. Elsewhere, you’ll find an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool, and cold water plunge pool.

3. Clover Spa
After a little more freedom from your spas in Birmingham? You can let it all hang out at this naked spa. Clover Spa has all your usual offerings for a spa day. From a sauna to a steam room, a hot tub to heated stone loungers, as well as full body massages and much more. The only difference? You’re completely in the buff. Prepare to shed your clothes, and you might even save some pounds compared to other Birmingham spas.

4. New Hall Hotel & Spa
Undoubtedly Birmingham’s most breathtaking spa is in Sutton Coldfield. New Hall Hotel & Spa started life as a manor house in the 13th century and is still surrounded by a lily-filled moat. The spa, located in New Hall’s magical gardens, is as modern as they come, however. Experience popular treatments such as facial, body and deep tissue massages. While – along with an indoor swimming pool, spa pool, sauna and steam room – there is also a tennis court and pitch & putt on the grounds. You’ll leave as tranquil as New Hall is itself.

5. Malmaison Spa Birmingham
Shop in style with a trip first to Malmaison Spa. Situated in the Mailbox, this is a great beauty spot for a quick fix. Malmaison Spa offers facials and massages that can be done in less than half an hour – there are longer ones too. Meaning you can be back out the door to carry on your shopping without feeling like you ever slowed down.
From waxing and brow tinting to full body treatments, this Birmingham spa has everything to make you feel brand new. The standout has to be the It’s All About Me package, however. For two-and-a-half hours, enjoy a regenerating facial, hot stone full body massage, salt scrub and scalp massage, and includes lunch with a glass of fizz and chocolates.

6. LUSH Spa Birmingham
Did you know everyone’s favourite bath bomb shop doubles as one of the best spas in Birmingham? The signature package at LUSH Spa Birmingham is an 80-minute, full-body massage and sensory treat. With a bird song soundtrack, fragrant tea to taste and a relaxing blend of essential oils, all to experience during your massage, you’ll feel a million miles from the busyness of Birmingham. But there are also spa treatments focused on rejuvenating your scalp, feet, hair and more. We love the sound bath spa treatment!
