Luxury Family Hotels People: Introducing Hayley Warman, New Spa Manager at New Park Manor
We’re delighted to introduce Hayley Warman into the fold as Spa Manager at our New Forest hotel. Hayley took some time out to chat to us about her background and about life at New Park Manor – as well as about her plans for its lovely spa.
• Hi Hayley, what's your career background and what was your journey to New Park Manor?
I've been in the spa industry for more than 10 years and spent time managing spas on cruise ships, travelling the world. Most recently I worked directly for ELEMIS. Now it's time to settle closer to home!
• What were your impressions of the hotel when you first visited?
The warm and friendly welcome from the staff made a real impression – as did the beautiful setting.
• What are your favourite aspects of the hotel?
The gorgeous view from the spa – being able to watch the horses and deer roam around so peacefully as you lie back and relax. And the crèche, which is brilliant for children and parents.
• What plans do you have for the spa?
We want it to be a place where guests can truly relax and feel at ease, whether they’re looking for a break from daily stresses or spending quality time with their children. We want to exceed their expectations and offer something for everyone.
We’re very excited to be launching a new treatment menu ready for summer, offering ELEMIS and Jessica therapies, ranging from the very best in anti-ageing facials, nourishing coconut body wraps and deeper-than-deep hot-stone massages to deluxe gel manicures and pedicures.
• What are your top beauty and wellbeing tips for our guests, many of whom are busy parents?
Try a face mask you can sleep in overnight once a week, to deeply nourish and restore radiance to the skin.
For tired muscles, use a stimulating bath soak to increase circulation and ease away those aches.
For optimum well-being, start your day with a warm glass of water and lemon to kickstart your metabolism and aid in detoxification.
Finally, take five minutes each evening to focus on relaxation breathing – to reduce stress, enhance sleep and wake with a clearer mind.
• What is your favourite treatment offered at the New Park Manor spa?
I love the ELEMIS BIOTEC facials combining technology, relaxation and clinically proven products to give you the ultimate facial. I also love the Garden of England Rose Restore Massage, ELEMIS's Heritage massage, using the best essential oils and ingredients to relax and nourish the body.
• What do you most like to do in the area? Do you have any insider tips for great things to see and do?
I recently visited Bolton’s Bench, a natural knoll, with a picnic and sat watching the horses roam. It was a great day – and it’s even better when the sun is shining!
