About

Want to treat yourself (or someone else) but can't decide between a luxurious spa experience, a sumptuous afternoon tea or a soul-soothing ritual? Lucky for you, there's no need to choose. All three of these indulgent options (and more!) have been brought together at eforea, the Southampton day spa that nestles alongside the eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl.

Formerly the Rose Bowl, destinations don’t get much more iconic. Both sporty types and history buffs will be in heaven because not only has the Utilita Bowl played host to One Day Internationals and Test Matches, it’s been the home of Hampshire County Cricket Club since 1885, making it one of the oldest cricket grounds in the country. 

As the venue’s only on-site hotel, many of the Hilton’s 171 sumptuous rooms offer sweeping views of the cricket ground, while its elegant restaurant, BEEFY’S, is inspired by the legendary Sir Ian Botham himself. But it’s not all about the sound of leather on willow here. That 18-hole parkland golf course makes the most of all the rolling Hampshire views - perfect for those who like to pamper and parr. 

But chances are it will be eforea itself that really bowls you over. More than just a spa, the luxurious thermal facilities alone could knock seasoned spa-goers for six - we’re talking mood lighting, rainforest scents, light and dark steam chambers and even an outdoor Jacuzzi. The facilities here are so extensive they’ll even provide you with a journey board to ensure you follow the best route for optimum wellness.

If you plan to turn a spa day into a whole weekend of indulgence, there’s plenty to do nearby. Just 20 minutes away from central Southampton you can shop ‘til you drop in the city centre, or go back in time at the Tudor House and Garden. Ocean Village is perfect for entertainment right beside the water, while the picturesque New Forest is just a short drive away.

But when you’re tired of the hustle and bustle, eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl will be your oasis of calm. Pamper with an Elemis ritual. Soak up the heat in the sunken Jacuzzi on the sunny spa terrace. Nibble on some delicacies in eforea pantry. And, if you’re hungry for more, BEEFY’s by Lord Ian Botham will be waiting to wow you, with local ingredients and signature cocktails on the menu.

The Spa & Wellness at eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl

If relaxation, restoration, and rejuvenation are what you seek, look no further than eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl. With a holistic approach to wellness, eforea will take you on a journey that will deeply nourish you, body and soul. 

With so many luxurious experiences to savour, you’ll find it hard to know where to start first. Luckily, rather than just handing you your robe and leaving you to it, helpful therapists will provide you with an order in which to try things, with each step designed for maximum relaxation. 

Your first stop? The rainforest shower. With immersive mood lighting and a fresh rainforest scent it will wash away stress. But that’s just a prelude for the blissful experiences yet to come.

The spa houses both light and dark steam chambers to restore the respiratory system and alleviate tension. Lay back on mosaic loungers in the tepidarium, then soak up the heat of the detoxifying bio sauna. After a quick and chilly rub down at the ice fountain, your journey leads you to bubbling foot spas, to soothe your feet in ways you may not have realised you needed!

The 10m hydrotherapy pool is not just a soak - it's a therapeutic experience. Targeted jets above and below the water's surface tackle tension hot spots and aid in the removal of toxins.

Ready for the finale? The large sauna chamber and outdoor Jacuzzi. The latter is sunken into the sunny roof terrace, making it the perfect spot for basking in the sunshine (preferably with a glass of something just as bubbly in-hand).

You may feel relaxed now, but your deep-dive into euphoria continues. After a spell in the cocooning transition room, eight zen-like treatment rooms await. Here therapists offer rituals designed by luxury high-end brand Elemis, to make your ‘me-time’ experience all the more enjoyable. 

Let your beauty shine through with prescriptive facials, or opt for a massage that nourishes both body and mind. There’s even a speed spa for those seeking a quick rejuvenation. Then float away to the deep relaxation room for the perfect post-treatment chill.

The well-equipped gym is perfect for both beginners and experts alike, and you’ll love the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Whether you’re here for a few minutes or a few hours, you can easily create the workout that ticks all the right boxes.

The state-of-the-art Precor equipment offers opportunities to monitor and track your progress, and there are entertainment options to prevent monotony.

Restaurants & Food at eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl

eforea pantry

Thought the pampering was over after your thermal journey and treatment? Not at eforea spa. Called eforea pantry, the spa cafe here offers something truly unique - a self-service buffet groaning with options for lunch and, of course, afternoon tea. 

With light and healthy salads for lunch, along with some less light and healthy savoury and sweet treats thrown in for good measure, you’ll book a 45 minute slot. Then you’re free to fill your plate with freshly baked sausage rolls, goat’s cheese straws, mini quiches, along with vegan and gluten-free options

Most (but not all) of our spa packages include eforea pantry access. If yours doesn’t, you can always book it as a standalone option.

BEEFY’S

eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl. is located at the home of Hampshire cricket, so it’s only fitting that their flagship restaurant should be associated with a legend of the game. BEEFY’S is a tribute to Sir Ian Botham, and much like the man himself, it’s a real winner.

This is a steakhouse that offers fine dining inspired by locally-sourced ingredients and features a pleasing homage to classic British dishes. From light bites to hearty meals, every mouthful promises to bring something very special.

As you might expect, there are big slabs of meat and rich flavours. Yet there’s also elegance on offer here too, like the Botham Wines, hand selected by Sir Ian Botham himself.

Had a wonderful experience at the Hilton spa where my partner and I had a full body scrub followed by a hour massage, which was tailored to my request! I enjoyed a deep tissue massage for my sports aches and a lovely face massage courtesy of Jennifer who was excellent 10/10

My partner and I bought the “balance spa package” at the Hilton spa and we loved every second. The facilities were great, our massages made the whole experience. Our therapists Lorna and Sophie were fantastic. We both had the body scrub followed by the full body recovery massage and it was bliss. The pantry was delicious had a lovely selection of food and the staff at the hotel are very kind and helpful. We will be coming again! Thank you to all the staff for a lovely experience that we very much needed x

Ageas spa is wonderful and has the bonus of both an indoor hydro pool and outside Jacuzzi. A few more loungers would be useful but this didn't spoil our day. The treatment was perfect and the therapist were very friendly. I would definitely return to this spa.

After having a relaxing healthy buffet lunch I sat on the outside sunny terrace. The Jacuzzi was very welcoming. Unfortunately there was a very limited selection of nail colours for my manicure!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does eforea Spa at Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl serve afternoon tea?

Absolutely! Well, is it really a spa experience if it doesn’t include dainty cakes and dinky sandwiches?

Pinkies up, because afternoon tea is served in eforea pantry between 12pm to 5pm.

Teas, coffees and soft-drinks are also available as part of the eforea pantry offering.

If you don’t have afternoon tea at eforea pantry as part of your package, you could always head to BEEFY’S, the restaurant at the Hilton Southampton – Utilita Bowl.

Relax, water babies! While there’s no swimming pool at eforea, it doesn’t mean you won’t get wet. Pack your cossie, because the 10m indoor hydrotherapy pool is warm and inviting, with jets above and below the surface to target tense muscles.
