Luxury accommodation in Cornwall, hot tubs, log burners…what are your expectations?
Wednesday 18th May, 2011
Luxury, it's that little 6 letter word that can mean so many different things to so many different people.
The Oxford dictionary describes the term using words such as indulgence, elegance, comfort or desirable. But what does it mean in terms of luxury accommodation in Cornwall?
From lodges with hot tubs in Cornwall, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished accommodation, 5 *concierge service, a relaxing hot stone massage, to a simple chocolate on the fresh crisp white pillow, what is considered as luxury is certainly something that can be personal to you.
One popular addition to a holiday which is deemed as the 'ultimate luxury' by many globe trotters is self catering accommodation with a private hot tub.
According to a survey hot tubs are on the top 10 list of most searched for holiday home facilities. So what is it about these bubbling baths that is so sought after and deemed as luxurious by so many…? Perhaps it's the feeling of soaking yourself in open air bliss, lying back and enjoying a soothing massage from the jets, this water therapy is proven to promote the release of endorphins; a natural product that your body produces and it is considered a “happy drug”. This experience of a little pampering after a tiring day of biking, sightseeing or swimming is certainly something that fits well with a Cornish holiday.
It's not just us humans who love them, nicknamed the snow monkey, these cheeky-looking Japanese macaques live a chilly existence in Yamanouchi, Japan. They like nothing better than keeping warm in steaming-hot pools, I just love this video of them.
Luxury lodges in Cornwall with hot tubs is certainly something that we have covered here at Gwel an Mor, but you will be thankful to hear there are no monkeys in our ones!
We would love to hear what you love about hot tubs and what 'luxury' means to you, comments most welcome...
