A LUXURY hotel that put up the I'm A Celeb campmates after their gruelling experience in Gwrych Castle is trialling women-only sessions at its spa.

Carden Park Hotel and spa, on the outskirts of Chester, was the eviction hotel for I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2020 when the ITV reality show was hosted at the castle near Abergele.

The first of the 'Women Only Wednesday' dates will be held on Wednesday, March 6, and Wednesday, May 1, with more dates to be confirmed.

The female only events are designed to provide an opportunity for women to spend time with friends, sisters, mothers, or simply to have a moment of relaxation in their own company. 

Emma Pridding, Spa Director at The Spa at Carden said "We are delighted to introduce these exclusive ladies-only spa events, providing a haven for our female guests to unwind and indulge in a day of pampering and tranquillity. Our commitment to creating a comfortable and enjoyable experience extends to having an all-female staff on these special days, ensuring a serene environment for everyone."

A contributing factor to The Spa at Carden’s decision to offer 'female only spa sessions' was the opportunity for inclusivity amongst spa guests who may not be able to usually enjoy a spa environment due to cultural or religious reasons.

A spokesperson for the hotel said: "With multiple enquiries from women looking for female only spa options, Carden Park previously worked with swimwear fashion brand LYRA Swim bringing together 15 esteemed female Muslim influencers shattering the misconception that modest swimwear isn't accepted in the spa environment.


"The feedback from the guests cemented the spas decision to offer women a comfortable place to enjoy the luxury facilities, in an accepted environment.

"The option of women-only spa sessions also lends itself to women who may have spa anxiety, as a survey put together by leading industry body The Good Spa Guide noted that 18 per cent of women felt worried about going to a spa because of their body confidence*.

"The soul aim of The Spa at Carden’s women’s only session is to make all female guests feel included and comfortable."
