Good Spa Guide Awards 2018 winners announced

The annual Good Spa Guide Awards in association with Temple Spa took place last night (13 November 2018) during a gala dinner at the Spa Life Conference.

18 winners were announced in two categories. The Regional Awards were selected by The Spa Spies who have reviewed over 200 spas and treatments this year. Awards include ‘Best Spa in London’, ‘Best Spa in Scotland’ and ‘Best Spa in the North East’. The Readers’ Choice National Awards were voted for by over 60,000 spa goers. Awards include ‘Best Spa for Wellness’, ‘Best Boutique Spa’ and ‘Best Newcomer’.

The Good Spa Guide Awards 2018, in association with Temple Spa, showcases excellence in the UK spa market. Since the awards were first started in 2010, the Good Spa Guide has seen rising standards, exciting new developments and a huge growth in the popularity of spa.
