The luxury Nirvana Spa in Wokingham is to expand its business after a plan to construct a new hotel was given the go ahead by councilors.
The Spa will replace its Pulse 8 gym with the new 70-bedroom hotel after planning permission was granted last month.
The Pulse 8 gym, which closed in December 2019, will be demolished to build the new complex that will also comprise a gym and outdoor swimming pool.
A previous proposal had been turned down in March last year.
This new application had been reduced in height with one storey removed. As a result, it is a wider structure with an increased level of ground floor space.
One of the conditions of the plan is that a rooftop garden would close at 9pm daily.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Nirvana said: “We are delighted to have been granted planning permission for our accommodation and new gym facilities.
“This exciting new development, with 70 bedrooms and a state-of-the-art gym will not only enhance our offering at Nirvana Spa it will also bring significant employment opportunities to the local area.
“While we look forward to this new venture, at the moment we are firmly focused on reopening the spa and fitness facilities for the enjoyment of our members and guests.”
