The Bath Priory hotel, part of the 13-strong Andrew Brownsword Hotels, has announced it is to open the UK’s first L’Occitane Spa, named The Garden Spa.
Opening next month, the new spa will be the only L’Occitane Spa in the UK and will feature exclusive treatments, including bespoke therapies created in partnership with the luxury, Provencal brand.
Offering four refurbished treatment rooms, including one dual room, each will be themed to reflect key L’Occitane ingredients such as verbena and lavender, designed to offer a taste of Provence in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath.
The new spa will feature a brand new relaxation room with double doors opening onto the gardens, aimed at being ideal for relaxing before or after treatments, a luxurious nail bar offering manicures and pedicures and a retail space dedicated to L’Occitane’s aromatic products.
The signature treatment at The Garden Spa by L’Occitane will be the 60-minute Verbena Relaxing Massage. Renowned for its soothing and restorative properties, the aromatic verbena is a key herbal ingredient in the South of France. The Verbena Relaxing Massage combines Swedish effleurage, Chinese acupressure and Balinese massage techniques to stimulate circulation, ease tension and relieve stress, leaving the mind calmed and the body soothed and nurtured.
The spa will offer a full range of treatments using L’Occitane products. Expert facials, such as the ‘Immortelle Secret of Youth’ is designed to smooth and firm for younger-looking skin, while body massages will include ‘Aromachologie Relaxing Massage’ and the ‘Shea Nourishing Comfort Massage’. Advanced body treatments including revitalising scrubs and detoxifying wraps will be available, as well as treatments designed especially for men and for expectant mums.
