If you know me a bit you probably have heard how I love Spas, Sea Views and food so I’m beyond excited when I get invited to review amazing spas, hotels and restaurants. We don’t have to go far as Bournemouth and Dorset has got so many amazing places and I’m planning to visit lots of them so keep your eyes peeled.
On the 4th of November 2018 we went with my friend, a locally and nationally known nutritionist and amazing personality Barbara Cox to check out the Ocean Beach Hotel and Spa which is part of the Oceana Beach Hotels.
When we spoke about our collaboration with Eugenia, I specifically asked about a sea view room as there isn’t anything better than waking up to the sea view right? Just have a look, so magical…
We’ve been welcomed by lovely receptionist and Eugenia the Digital Associate.
After checking in we quickly got changed and went to relax in the spa at the Suncliff hotel, which is just next door and as is a sister hotel. All of the guests from the Ocean Beach Hotel can use the renovated pool, sauna and the spa area. Just have a look at it isn’t it beautiful?
Next day we started with a lovely breakfast which consisted of the traditional and the continental breakfast, of course I went for the full English breakfast option and it was delicious.
After the breakfast we headed to the Oceana Day Spa for our treatments. I chose the full body hot stone massage and it was amazing. I was so relaxed and my body felt rejuvenated. You can see all of the amazing treatments here.
Barbara decided to go for the full body scrub and she told me that it was amazing too, she also treated herself to a pedicure, because why not treating yourself?
After the lovely treatments as it was my Birthday month Barbara treated me to a lovely lunch and Prosecco this time at the Cumberland Hotel at the Ventana Café. I haven’t been there before, but the food was gorgeous so definitely going back there soon and the views, what more could I ask for?
What I loved about our stay is that we didn’t really have go far to feel like we were on holiday, to unwind, relax. Bournemouth has got so many amazing hotels and Oceana Beach Hotel is definitely worth visiting if you are planning to come to Bournemouth for a little holiday.
If that wasn’t enough excitement for the day, we were booked for an amazing three course dinner at the Italian Café.
I wouldn’t be myself if I would not order a Hawaiian pizza. There are people who don’t agree with putting a pineapple on the pizza, but I’m definitely not one of those people.
Barbara went for more sophisticated option a seafood linguini. The waiter suggested a beautiful red wine from Tuscany would go very well without food choices, he was right it was delicious.
I absolutely loved our little stay at the Ocean Beach Hotel and I would definitely recommend it if you are looking to book a nice sea view hotel as a couple for the Valentines day or a family getaway or if you are local and just need a little escape and time to relax. The beach is literally a few meters from the hotel so you can have a morning jog if you wish.
Hope you enjoyed my first blog review after a long time. I promise that more reviews are coming. I’ve been invited to review some amazing places so keep your eyes peeled.
Lots of Love and hugs
