The best chocolate massages in the UK and beyond

Have a break, become a human chocolate bar (of sorts).

I love a good massage. There's nothing like it to relax tired muscles and an overworked mind. And as a chocoholic, I clearly love chocolate.

So when I stumbled across these wonderful - dare I say it, magical - places up and down the land (and some a bit further afield) that combine a good massage or spa treatment with the power of cocoa and chocolate, I knew I needed to dig a little deeper. The notion of combining two of my favourite things sounded right up my street.

A few years ago chocolate massages were all the rage. Head to a spa, get smothered in liquid chocolate and have a particularly messy massage knowing that it's doing the world of wonders to your body, senses, and mind. While chocolate massages have dipped out of fashion a little, I have found some spas and beauty salons still offering the classic option as well as some that are offering modern twists on the old favourite.

What are the benefits of a chocolate massage?

The debate on whether eating chocolate is good for you still rumbles on. For every positive is a negative.

The NHS has critiqued a study conducted at the German Institute of Human Nutrition, which concluded "chocolate consumption appears to lower cardiovascular risk, in part through reducing blood pressure."

AXA PPP Healthcare claims it can elevate your mood, can help heart health and arteries if the chocolate is high in flavonoids, can suppress coughing thanks to the chemical theobromine, and can help the brain thanks to the chemical epicatechin (a natural phenol and antioxidant).

Saga Magazine cites a study from University of California in which chocolate slowed blood clotting if eaten in small amounts. It also references a Penn State University study in which the colcusion was drawn that people who consumed chocolate had elevated anti-oxidant levels in their blood together with reduced levels of LDL-cholesterol.

The British Heart Foundation reckons the research just isn't "conclusive enough to recommend eating [chocolate] for health reasons." It does go on to say dark chocolate is a richer source of antioxidants though.

So the jury is still out on whether eating chocolate is good for you. I'm of the mindset that everything can be good so long as it is in moderation. And I'm of the belief that a small amount of good quality dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa is going to do my body (and taste buds) more good than eating a slab of value milk chocolate which has a higher fat and sugar content ratio.

So if we ought to limit eating chocolate, is there any health benefits to smearing it all over our bodies?

Shanghai's Ritz-Carlton spa agrees emphatically. They claim that cocoa is packed with over 300 compounds (including theobromine, polyphenols, and antioxidants) that "can have a positive positive effect on your skin." The spa also explains "the scent of chocolate stimulates 'happy feeling' endorphins which create feelings of well-being and can reduce stress."

Hotel Chocolat also explains that the humble cacao bean is "packed with antioxidants and vital minerals" making it a logical natural base for some beauty products.

Sara Davenport of Reboot Health reckons it's a bucket list experience, explaining that a chocolate massage "releases a torrent of beta endorphins, neurotransmitters that are stronger in their effects than morphine." So you'll likely experience a really satisfying buzz from the unusual choice of massage.

The Spa At The Hotel Hershey comments on the enjoyment factor, stating it's the best way to "relax and enjoy chocolate without a single calorie." That makes it guilt-free in my mind!

Besides using cocoa as part of a massage, the cocoa bean husk lends itself to being used as an exfoliant. Esteem Beauty adds that the cocoa bean's fibre shell can "break down harmful free radicals" in the skin. It also mentions that the "fatty cocoa butter hydrates and softens the skin" and concludes that cocoa "feels fantastic and smells gorgeous." Amen to that.

What to expect at a chocolate massage

Regardless of the treatment you choose, have a wash before heading to the spa. Loose and comfortable clothing is always a winner, even if it isn't the most glamorous look. Head to the loo before your treatment as there's nothing worse than needing to go during a massage.

Depending on the treatment you choose, some can be messy. Full body wraps involve smearing a paste all of your body. Equally, massages with cocoa paste will make you resemble a walking talking chocolate bar. Expect to shower at the spa in these cases.

Others use cocoa-infused massage oils so you'll not need to wash afterwards in these instances.

Full body treatments may involve you stripping down to your underwear or involve a change into skimpy (and frankly unflattering) spa underwear. Don't feel self conscious though - the beauticians have seen it all before.

After the treatment, if you've had oil or cream applied, you are supposed to leave it on your skin as long as you can to maximise the benefits. Personally I don't like the greasy feeling after a massage so I hop in the shower fairly soon after. Each to their own.

Remember to drink plenty of water after your massage as muscles can secrete lactic acid during the treatment, and keeping hydrated can help flush these out of your system. Stay away from alcohol and caffeine if possible.

Lactic acid can also sometimes make you feel a bit tired, dizzy, or achy after a massage. It doesn't affect everyone in the same way, but it's worth bearing in mind.

Above all, try and rest as much as you can immediately after the massage, and try to keep the muscles warm. You are nice and relaxed so the last thing you want to do is tense up your muscles straight away. Some spas have swimming pools or thermal suites that you can often bolt onto your massage to form a relaxing spa day.

My top picks

From the list below, there's a couple of stand-out options for me.

  • Firstly is the Chocolate Massage at Bannatynes Spa. Their 55-minute massage is long enough to relax, and they also have a selection of three aromas to choose between. Plus, they have spa locations up and down the country - there's one near me so it's by far my closest opportunity for slathering myself with chocolate.
  • Money no object, I'd jet off to St Lucia for the ultimate chocoholics retreat at Hotel Chocolat's Boucan Resort. The intense, 60-minute pure cacao sports massage while gazing at the gorgeous St Lucian landscapes has my name written all over it. Plus, the hotel offers a variety of tree-to-bean and bean-to-bar experiences that sounds fantastic in addition to all that relaxation.
  • I find myself inexplicably drawn to visit the Hershey community in Pennsylvania , USA. In my head, it's a playground akin to Disney World, except this one is for chocoholics. I am sure the reality is vastly different, but you'll find me in the Hotel Hersey Spa enjoying a chocolate milk bath after a day exploring the Hersheypark chocolate theme park, the Hershey World chocolate shop, and the Hershey Story chocolate museum.

Where to get a chocolate massage (Worldwide)

I am sure there are hundreds, if not thousands, of places that offer some form of chocolate massage. These are a small selection of the best known experiences I have read good things about.

Boucan by Hotel Chocolat (St Lucia)

I can't get enough of Hotel Chocolat's chocolate nibbles so the idea of jetting off to the lush Caribbean island of St Lucia for an authentic chocolate massage on the grounds of a cocoa plantation just makes total sense to me.

Clearly, a spa at a hotel run by Hotel Chocolat is going to have chocolate at its heart, and Boucan certainly does not disappoint. Your inner chocoholic will squeal with delight at the option of a Cacao Facial, or a Cacao Detox Body Wrap, or the Cacao Body Exfoliate & Moisturise treatment. But the chocolate massage is the jewel in the crown.

The cacao-oil lotions used for the 30- or 60-minute massage - choose from pure cacao, cacao-peppermint, cacao-rose, or cacao-nutmeg/cinnamon - is made in small batches on the estate. Better still, the divine massage takes place in a Cocoa Juvenate treatment room overlooking the Pitons. It sounds scrummy!

Location: The Hotel, The Rabot Estate, Soufriere, Saint Lucia, West Indies

Price: [exchangerate rate="USD"]66[/exchangerate] for a 30-minute massage, or [exchangerate rate="USD"]127[/exchangerate] depending on duration.

Book: Click here to book. Take a look at the packages too, as these include several activities in one bundle. Don't forget flights too - the London Gatwick (LGW) to Hewanorra International St Lucia (UVF) route is served by TUI, British Airways, and Virgin Atlantic, with the journey taking around 9 hours.

Kai en Ciel Spa (St Lucia)

When not one but two great spa resorts pop up on my radar in the same country I get the feeling it's somewhere that should be on my bucket list. And a mere 4 miles down the road from Hotel Chocolat's offering is the Kai en Ciel Spa which is part of the sprawling 600-acre Jade Mountain estate.

The spa offers a variety of chocolate themed options, including a chocolate facial, a chocolate exfoliation scrub, a hot chocolate candle massage, and even a chocolate manicure or pedicure.

If you're the type of person who can't decide between chocolates in a selection box, the 3-hour Chocolate Lovers package is the best choice for you, combining three treatments into one. The Chocolate Citrus Body Polish involves a chocolate citrus sugar polish body scrub followed by a chocolate body wrap, with a dash of chocolate body milk to complete proceedings.

A classic Swedish massage follows, with the aromas of mocha throughout, before enjoying a chocolate mint facial. It all sounds dreamy.

Location: Kai en Ciel Spa, Jade Mountain at Anse Chastanet, Soufriere, St. Lucia, West Indies

Pure Jungle Spa (Costa Rica)

Pure Jungle Spa calls itself an artisan spa and is to the spa world what bean-to-bar is to the chocolate world. Locally sourced quality ingredients seems to be at its heart.

They call it the "Ultimate Total Body Chocolate Decadence," and given what goes into this massage, I'd have to agree. At its core are locally grown organic cacao beans, which are roasted over an open fire by an indigenous family. These are then hand ground into a coarse chocolate paste. The texture acts as an exfoliant and the cocoa butter is perfect for a relaxing massage.

Location: Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica

Price: [exchangerate rate="USD"]69[/exchangerate] to [exchangerate rate="USD"]95[/exchangerate] depending on duration.

Book: Click here to book. Don't forget flights too - the nearest airport is Limon International Airport but your best chance of flights from London is to San José Juan Santamaria International (SJO) which is served by Aeromexico, KLM, British Airways, and SWISS. Expect a flight time of around 11 hours.

The Spa at The Hotel Hershey (USA)

The community of Hershey in Pennsylvania happens to share its name with the country's bestselling chocolate. In fact, it was founded by Milton S. Hershey and has since earned itself the nicknames of Chocolatetown and 'The Sweetest Place on Earth'. If you're travelling on a pilgrimage to the American capital of chocolate, it would be rude not to visit the Hersheypark chocolate theme park, the massive Hershey World chocolate shop, and the Hershey Story chocolate museum. That's my holiday for next year sorted!

And where should you stay? The Hershey Hotel of course. And what's contained within? The Hershey Spa. Thanks to its range of chocolate-themed spa treatments, it may well be more deserving of the title 'The Sweetest Place on Earth' than the community.

If you have a spare 3½ hours then book yourself the chocolate Escape package. Enjoy a 15-minute dip in a foaming chocolate milk bath. Opt for either the 30-minute Chocolate Bean Polish (cocoa bean husks and walnut shells mixed with a softening cocoa moisturiser) or Chocolate Sugar Scrub to exfoliate the skin. Then it's time for a chocolate fondue body wrap using a blend of cocoa, red mineral mud, and organic cocoa butter, for an hour. And the cherry on the cake is a a 50-minute Swedish Massage using their signature chocolate scented massage oil. There's also time for lunch in The Oasis lounge and restaurant. Sheer bliss.

Location: The Spa At The Hotel Hershey, 100 Hotel Road, Hershey, PA 17033

Price: [exchangerate rate="USD"]385[/exchangerate] to [exchangerate rate="USD"]405[/exchangerate].

The Ritz-Carlton Spa (Shanghai)

The 5-star Ritz-Carlton Pudong sits in a sleek skyscraper next to Shanghai Oriental Pearl TV Tower. If you want sheer luxury head here. If you want sheer luxury with a chocolate twist then head to the Ritz-Carlton Spa.

What I really like about their offering is that there's a good amount of tasting alongside using cocoa as a beauty treatment. So this two-hour experience kicks off with a cup of rich hot chocolate as a taste of things to come.

Next it's onto a full body chocolate salt scrub, followed by a whole body massage with soothing chocolate almond oil. The beauty side of things climaxes with a delightful chocolate wrap where a thick layer of chocolate will be applied to your skin, with a chocolate facial to enjoy while the wrap works its magic. But it doesn't stop there as the hotel's French Executive Pastry Chef will have prepared a handmade chocolate treat for you to draw proceedings to a close.

Just remember, once you've finished (and had a wash), be sure to take a dip in the pool on the 55th floor - the views look incredible!

Location: Shanghai IFC, 8 Century Avenue, Lujiazui, Pudong, Shanghai, 200120, China

Price: [exchangerate rate="CNY"]1800[/exchangerate].

The Soothing Chocolate and Cocoa Bean Self Heating Body Wrap is both relaxing and nourishing, with a range of minerals and vitamins to boot.

Lotus Spa (Princess Cruises; Worldwide)

Modern cruise ships are like floating cities with all the services you would expect from any bustling metropolis. Dozens of restaurants, Broadway-style theatre productions, bars, nightclubs, entertainment districts, and most importantly for us, full-service spas.

When I'm not dreaming of chocolate, my other passion is cruise ships. And one cruise line seems keen to indulge in both my passions - Princess Cruises. In collaboration with chocolatier Norman Love, Chocolate Journeys is a programme of events designed to satisfy the sweetest of teeth. You'll find chocolate cookies and desserts in the cafés and restaurants, Norman Love chocolates to buy in the shops, you can join a chocolate and wine tasting experience, or you can head to the Lotus Spa and treat yourself to the Chocolate Body Indulgence treatment.

Available in either a 75-minute or far more tempting 100-minute variant, the treatment includes a chocolate body scrub, a whipped chocolate body mask, and a relaxing massage with chocolate-scented oil.

Location: On selected Princess Cruises ships worldwide.

Price: [exchangerate rate="USD"]195[/exchangerate] to [exchangerate rate="USD"]259[/exchangerate] depending on duration.
