Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa in Newbury, Berkshire, has launched a new spa therapy package to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and dry skin conditions.

Called the 'Winter Sunshine Spa Break', the package features the spa's exclusive Aqua Sun Therapy treatment, a unique bathing experience that combines a mineral-rich spa bath with 'sunshine' from a low-level UV light canopy to provide a healthy dose of vitamin D, boost circulation, treat SAD and soothe eczema and other skin complaints.

The treatment is followed by a back, neck and shoulder massage, using products from organic skincare brand Little Butterfly London, selected to ensure that sensitive, reactive skin is soothed and protected.

Tina Birtchnell, spa manager at Donnington Valley said: “We want everyone to feel refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed when they visit us. The AquaSun treatment is perfect for those with sensitive skin, dry skin conditions or simply for those who are in need of a healthy dose of Vitamin D during the colder months.”

The package, which costs £149 pp, also includes an overnight stay in one of the hotel's classic rooms, with waffle robe and fluffy slippers included, as well as access to the spa facilities, a three-course meal in the Winepress Restaurant and breakfast.
