Aztec Hotel & Spa

This calming health club and spa is well set up for exploring Bristol


Time Out says

Bristol is a lovely city: charming, artsy and buzzing with activity. Sometimes, though, you just need a little R&R. Aztec Hotel & Spa is the kind of place that’s fit for both locals and tourists thanks to its convenient location close to the city. Found about ten minutes from Bristol Parkway in a pretty bog-standard hotel – located in what appears to be a business park – the spa itself is anything but ordinary.

With fluffy comfortable seating, a self-service bar and rows of private lounge chairs for mani-pedis, the newly opened Relax Lounge looks like it could be Kim Kardashian’s house. A soft, floral aroma wafted through the space: bliss. Fresh juices, ice cold water and bottles of fizz were all available, alongside light snacks (which I decided to skip, following a hefty full English in the hotel restaurant). The fitness facilities were of just as high a standard: there’s a large pool, which means you can get a few laps in pre or post glow-up, alongside a fully equipped gym if you want to build on your muscles ahead of a massage. There’s also the option to hop in the sauna or steam room whenever you feel like it. 

I was booked in for the ‘Ultimate Glow’. It’s the full works: back, face and scalp, including a massage and facial. I can vouch that it was an hour and a half of pure relaxation: the massage pressure was just right, the skin treatments smelt amazing and I left feeling like a glowing goddess. I was also given a guide to what products were used as well as recommendations for upkeep (serum before moisturising). As a whole, Aztec Hotel & Spa has got all you want facilities-wise and the treatments themselves leave you feeling suitably regal.
