The thermal suite includes an herbal sauna, Himalayan salt steam, aroma steam, Tepidarium and a sunken amphitheatre sauna, with the spa also home to a gym which will offer a programme of more than 40 classes every week.

The darkened Sleep Sanctuary retreat will offer guests access to soundwave therapy beds and sleep pods.

The new spa will be home to 14 treatment rooms which can be booked as part of a day package or coupled with a stay at the hotel. The spa will also include a Rasul mud chamber and a beauty snug, as well as its own hairdressing salon and an Asian Fusion restaurant.

“This is going to be one of the most exciting spa developments in the UK for some time,” said Jill Russell, spa director.

“We’ve created somewhere really special, which will literally have something for everyone.”
