The £16m development of Lake District’s Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa has taken a major step forward with the reopening of its health club and gym.
The refurbishment, which began in January, will see the hotel’s 133 bedrooms, new outdoor leisure facilities along with a new atrium and spa created.
Now the new-look health club has opened its doors, and includes a new fitness studio, express spa treatment rooms and modernised changing rooms.
A new infra-red sauna and upgraded steam room have also been introduced.
The health club’s new ‘Snug’ includes manicure and pedicure lounges, physiotherapy and spa and massage treatment rooms.
The health club’s swimming pool hall has also undergone refurbishment and modernisation work and a new retail area offers products and souvenirs from local suppliers.
In addition, the existing squash court has been retained.
Michael Kay, group leisure manager from English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues says: “The gym is the perfect environment for guests who want to be a bit more active during their stay. We have over 30 classes per week, including ‘float-fit’ in the pool and outdoor adventure activities like Nordic walking or paddle board sessions out on the lake. We’ve also introduced our ‘MYZONE’ interactive exercise app for visitors to monitor their training progress.
Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa’s newly refurbished rooms re-opened after the first phase of construction in April.
A restaurant, ‘Blue Smoke on the Bay’, together with new outdoor spa facilities and an infinity pool above the lake, are to open in the coming months.
The redevelopment work is due to be completed in the autumn.
The final phase will also feature extensive indoor and outdoor thermal experiences for guests, including a variety of cabins, relaxation areas, an infinity pool, hot tubs and sauna, with stunning views across Windermere.
