About

Finding time away from our busy lives can be tricky. But if you’re feeling out of sync, we think we’ve found the cure - a pampering spa day at the Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury.  

Whether you're in need of some solo stress relief, a pampering session with the girls or a soothing couple’s treatment with your other half, Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury can do it all and more - and in wonderfully relaxing surroundings, too. 

Set in an elegant period building, its heart-of-Shaftesbury location is ideal for those who like to soak up a little history while they’re being spoiled. Nestled on Park Walk, it’s at the top of picture-perfect Gold Hill. And if you think this street looks a little familiar, you’d be right. Cameras at the ready, because these ancient cobbles were once the star of the show in the famous Hovis adverts.

Beyond Gold Hill, Shaftesbury is a beautiful Dorset town that’s well worth a visit in its own right. Take a tour around the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey, or learn about the town’s past at the Gold Hill Museum, open from April to October. Indulge in some retail therapy at one of the many quirky independent boutiques, or head to Swan’s Yard for art galleries and artisan crafts.

But when you’re tired of the hustle and bustle, the Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury will be your oasis of calm. This beautifully boutique day spa offers five sublime treatment rooms, including shared rooms for those much-needed get-togethers. Pamper with a treatment from the extensive menu. Soak up the heat with a private infrared sauna session. But make sure you leave time to savour an afternoon tea or lunch to remember in Vita Skin Spa’s sumptuous relaxation room.

The Spa & Wellness at Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury

Whether you want a full day of pampering with friends or a quick escape that’s just for you, Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury has got you covered. Recently refurbished, this period property’s tranquil surroundings are ready and waiting to transport you to a world of relaxation. 

Step through the doors and into an oasis of calm that feels a world away from the hustle and bustle outside. Cocooned in the luxury of your fluffy white robe, take a moment to breathe the scented air. Feel your shoulders drop, then it’s time for your deep dive into euphoria to begin. 

First stop, the infrared sauna. With room inside for four, it’s perfect if there’s a group of you. It will be exclusively yours, too, making this the perfect retreat for couples, celebrations or for small groups of friends. Toxins don’t stand a chance against the warm, dry heat, and it’s also said to stimulate your ‘feel good’ hormones, so you’ll come out feeling radiant.

Keep the bliss going in the sumptuous relaxation room. Soft lighting and ambient music helps you unwind before, after or between your treatments. This sequestered space is ideal for pamper parties or special celebrations or for just enjoying some quiet time, book in hand.

With a full menu full of rituals to enjoy, you’ll feel smoothed and soothed from head to toe. Trained therapists perform face and body rituals in single rooms, but if you’re here with someone special, ask for a double - massages are much more fun when there’s two of you.

Our tip? Try the Lava Shell massage. It’s performed using the world’s first self-heating massage tool - clever shapes that become an extension of the therapist’s hands, for a deeply therapeutic ritual that feels almost magical. 

Thoroughly revitalised it’s time for the final finishing touch and, at Vita Skin Spa, you don’t have to go it alone. Its manicure and pedicure room allows groups of up to four to reconnect as they beautify. After all, friends that pamper together, stay together!

The Gym & Fitness at Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury

There’s no gym at Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury, but that doesn’t mean you should leave your fitness goals at home.

If you’re here in the summer, a trip to Shaftesbury Lido is a must. Open from June to September, there’s lane swimming and aqua aerobics to enjoy. No cossie? No problem. They even hold naked swimming sessions to improve self-esteem and help you get that all-important vitamin D. Swimming au naturel will cost you just £7.50.

If you’re keen on walking, jogging or cycling, the Shaftesbury Loop passes right by the spa’s front door and takes you on quite the tour. The full route covers four miles around the town and neighbouring countryside and although challenging, it’s a fun outdoor orienteering experience that offers plenty of picturesque rest stops on the way. 

You can download the map from the Shaftesbury Council website, or just look out for Shaftesbury Loop routemarkers on wooden stakes and lamp posts along the journey.

Restaurants & Food at Vita Skin Spa Shaftesbury

You’ve felt serene at the spa, now it’s time to feel satiated and, when it comes to eating and drinking, you’re spoilt for choice. 

Some spa packages include lunch or afternoon tea, served in the serene surroundings of the relaxation room. Not to be missed, both of these indulgent options include tasty sandwiches and a menu of teas and coffees that you enjoy together as part of the relaxing spa experience. 

A well-known foodie destination, Shaftesbury is home to one of the largest one-day food festivals in the South West, showcasing the best in local produce. There’s also a great mix of traditional pubs, bistros and cafés right on the Vita Skin Spa’s own doorstep, many with great views of the famous cobbled street as well as the rolling hills of the Blackmore Vale beyond. 

For something a little more extravagant, the town has several fine dining restaurants just waiting to be discovered. In addition, various hotels offer exceptional dining experiences that will leave you feeling thoroughly spoiled.
