Five-star hotel Rockliffe Hall is to invest £180k into its spa over the coming months, following a makeover of its gym at the end of 2018.
The phased development will take place in April and early May and will see new thermal rooms, a new igloo, infrared sauna and experience showers introduced, while the tropicarium and foot spa will be enhanced, together with a salt inhalation system installed in the caldarium.
A cold drench bucket shower will be installed outside, next to the hot tub, and there are also plans to install a spa wave treatment bed in the current salt room adjacent the spa treatment rooms.
The project comes just a few months after Rockliffe Hall unveiled its renovated new-look gym following a £200k investment.
The resort’s spa operations manager, Alistair Bramwell, says: “Rockliffe Hall’s Spa has been renowned for many years as one of the best in the region but as always at Rockliffe, we are looking to invest in improving the overall Spa experience. During the work we aim to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and we are sure our members and guests will love the Spa’s new look and features when it’s complete.”
Five-star Rockliffe Hall opened in 2009 by Steve Gibson, chairman of Middlesborough FC following a £6m transformation project that saw the derelict building converted into an epic hotel.
The property comprises 61 bedrooms, two bars, three restaurants, including the flagship four AA Rosette restaurant ‘The Orangery’, ‘The Brasserie’ and ‘The Clubhouse’; 12 meeting and event rooms; an 18-hole championship golf course; and a 50,000 square foot spa and wellness centre.
The £1m spa garden was launched in 2015.
Rockliffe Hall has also recently opened a Lewis Carroll themed whimsical wonderland featuring curious cabins, an eco-adventure playground, Looking Glass House, tennis courts and an interactive water feature.
