A number of top boutiques in the UK have been named as having some of the best spas in Europe, in a shortlist created by The Telegraph.
Chewton Glen, Gainsborough Bath Spa, Dormy House, Corinthia, Lime Wood, The Scarlet and Gleneagles were all listed in the feature, for their luxury facilities and impressive locations.
Chewton Glen, in Hampshire’s award-winning spa was named for boasting the largest hydrotherapy pool in Europe, as well as outdoor hot tubs and Grecian themed design.
Lime Wood’s Herb House Spa is encased by glass and home to private bathrooms and a pioneering raw food cafe, while Corinthia Hotel’s ESPA Life spa in the heart of London boasts sleep pods, wave-style corridors and a relaxation room.
Gainsborough Bath Spa in Bath only opened this year, but already its spa is proving popular. The space comprises 11 treatment rooms, three thermal pools, sauna, steam room and infrared sauna, giving a Roman feel throughout.
Dormy House in the Cotswolds has a spa that spans several floors and even its own wing. The House Spa opened at the start of 2014 after a £10m investment, which saw the space transformed into a relaxing luxury haven.
Also on the list was The Scarlet in Cornwall, with a spa that is home to pods suspended in the dark for ‘deep relaxation’ and an all-glass sea-facing roof.
Often referred to as one of the best spas in Scotland, Gleneagles also offers a range of alternative therapies alongside the norm with added health benefits.
The boutique hotels were picked out as some of the best in Europe alongside hotel spas in Germany, Paris, Rome and Turkey.
