Golf and health club operator The Club Company is investing £.17m into refurbishing the fitness facilities at Woodbury Park, near Exeter, a hotel that was originally created by former F1 champion Nigel Mansell.
The 56-bed hotel, compete with spa and golf course, was acquired by the group in November 2016, and now work has begun to renovate and extend the gym.
Technogym equipment will be installed throughout, as well as an improved functional training area. There will also be a new spin studio, with Technogym bikes.
The existing dance studio and wet changing rooms will be refurbished, and the dry changing rooms will be revamped and extended.
A new, adult-only wet spa area will be created, which will include an infinity hydro pool, Rohol sauna and steam room.
An on-site creche, called The Zoo, will also be added.
The new gym is scheduled to open during the first week of June, with other facilities planned to be completed throughout June and July.
The operator said: “We are incredibly excited about these extensive refurbishments, which will hugely improve Woodbury members’ fitness experience, and enjoyment of their club.”
Woodbury Park sits on a 350-acre estate and was sold to The Club Company off a guide price of £11.8m at the end of the last year.
The Club Company owns and operates 12 properties across the UK.
