Lake District Hotels – which owns and operates seven hotels in England’s picturesque Lake District – is opening a £10m (US$14m, €11m) spa at its Lodore Falls location in Keswick this August, with extensive thermal facilities and panoramic views across the lake.
Designed by architects Unwin Jones Partnership, with interiors by Greyline Design, the spa will include 769sq m (8,274sq ft) of indoor space and 305sq m (3,282sq ft) of outdoor space.
Wet areas have been designed by Rigo Spa, and include five thermal suites, a 16m outdoor hydrotherapy pool – one of the country’s longest – and an infinity hot tub. The spa also features its own champagne bar, which will serve a variety of drinks and light snacks.
Thermal suites include a laconium, salt steam room, steamroom, herbal sauna and experience showers. Heated mosaic loungers, an ice fountain, four-person mud rasul, five treatment rooms and a fitness suite complete the spa offerings.
Treatments will use Elemis and La Sultan De Saba, and a streamlined treatment package is currently being developed alongside both brands with help from spa consultant Liz Holmes.
The hotel is also gearing up to reveal 18 new spa suites, most of which offer floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in wardrobes and views over the lake, forest or fells.
A new restaurant, attached to the main hotel and to complement the existing Lake View restaurant, will complete the spa experience for those guests who are on pamper packages, which include a food offering.
Lodore Falls is currently recruiting for a spa manager,
head therapist, therapists and spa hosts to help complete set up of the spa ahead of its opening in August 2018.
