Cheshire’s Carden Park has begun work on the next phase of its £20m development project, as construction starts on a new luxury spa.
The privately-owned hotel, situated on 1,000 acre country estate, will open the new spa in the summer of 2019, after an investment of £10m into the new facility.
The aim is for the new addition to be ‘world class’ and round off a three-year £20m extensive refurbishment and the independent property.
Inspired by Carden Park’s countryside setting, the new spa will comprise an outdoor spa garden complete with a sensory hydrotherapy pool, hot tubs, fire pits and outdoor sauna with private ‘secret garden’ relaxation spaces plus a central champagne bar.
Inside the spa, there will be a range of different thermal experiences, a large vitality pool, ice fountain, snow shower, experience showers, foot baths and heated loungers. There will also be 14 treatment rooms and a beauty lounge.
Announcing the development, Carden Park general manager, Hamish Ferguson, who rejoined the hotel earlier this month, says: “Carden Park is constantly innovating and evolving to meet market demands but this is a momentous leap forward for the business as we invest in what will be one of the most luxurious spa developments in the UK. Not only will it offer Cheshire residents a place to relax and socialise but it will also prove an important added attraction to the luxury leisure break market. We have an incredible team of people involved and I’m looking forward to what will be a very special spa journey for us all.”
The team appointed on the project are HB Architects, Pave Aways Ltd Building Contractors, Barr & Wray Interior Design and Spa Consultant Nicki Kurran.
