Carden Park, the privately owned, award-winning hotel, set within a 1,000 acre country estate in the Cheshire countryside broke ground yesterday (26th June 2018) on a new £10m luxury spa. Set to be world class, this extensive spa – located in the grounds of the estate – will be the crowning glory in the £20m refurbishment investment over the past three years. It is an addition to the current facilities and will bring further jobs to the area.
Inspired by Carden Park’s natural countryside setting, the new spa, set to open in summer 2019, will welcome both day spa visitors and overnight guests to fully relax and recharge with a large choice of facilities. This includes an exceptional 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 offering manicure, pedicure, lash and brow services for the finishing touches. A number of relaxation areas with cosy seating spaces are planned, as well as a first floor lounge and restaurant with stunning, far reaching views.
Announcing the development, Carden Park General Manager, Hamish Ferguson 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 this prestigious project are HB Architects, Pave Aways Ltd Building Contractors, Barr & Wray Interior Design and Spa Consultant Nicki Kurran. Together, the team has an impressive selection of luxury spas and hotels across the globe in its portfolio.
