Spa Diamond

78-82 Babington Ln, Derby DE1 1SX

Spa Diamond claims to offer the “very best” massage experiences in Derby as they use holistic methods to “diminish aches and pains, improve flexibility and reduce tension.” The experts also offer a selection of award-winning facials ranging from LED Light Therapy to Collagen for reducing the signs of ageing. Those who would rather avoid all the stress of battling traffic after their relaxing treatment can benefit from the mobile services available. Google reviewers and TripAdvisor users alike have highly rated Spa Diamond, while praising staff for providing a comfortable atmosphere.

One reviewer said: “I was anxious as it was my first massage, I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and felt welcome. I ordered a Thai massage with hot coconut oil and was then taken to a very calm relaxing room by a lady called Monika who instantly made me feel comfortable. I felt no anxiety in what I was doing which was unusual for me and monika gave me an amazing massage and it really helped my fibromyalgia and sciatica and left me feeling really calm, loose and relaxed.

“Massive thanks to the staff and monika especially and would definitely recommend this to anyone even if you struggle with self image ect like I do they make you feel very welcome and I have no regrets 😊 thanks.”

There are two infinity pools outside which overlook fields. Inside you can choose from two steam rooms and two sauna rooms.

“The food is delicious and I highly recommend the non alcoholic cocktails. It wasn’t overly busy either. Every time we went to use a sauna or steam room they were empty. Makes a nice change from the usually crowded ones in most of the larger spas. All in all one of the best spa days I have ever been on. I will definitely be back.”
