Gilpin Hotel laps up luxury with five new detached suites


January 2016 will see the launch of five new luxury detached suites at Gilpin Hotel in the Lake District.

The new additions will offer next-level luxury for guests looking for something extra special with each suite coming complete with a private en-suite spa.

Each spa will consist of a treatment area, steam room, rain maker shower, roll-top bath, sauna and hot tub, surrounded by a walled garden with views over the Lake District moors.

Guests to one of the five suites will arrive to gift hampers filled with Gilpin’s Organic Jetty Spa products and delicacies created by the boutique’s executive chef Hrishikesh Desai.

The suites themselves will boast mood lighting, fires, electric blinds and a new music system.

For guests, the ‘spa journey’ begins with an aromatherapy massage, followed by a Kaolin clay body mask in the steam room, bamboo body polish in the rain-maker shower, then out to the garden sauna with an Indian hair treatment, then finally the ‘cube’ hydrotherapy hot tub with a facial spritz.
