Estelle Manor reveals Eynsham Baths Roman spa


English countryside hotel and club Estelle Manor has launched a 3,000sq m Roman-inspired bathhouse and spa following an intricate five-year project.

Set on a 60-acre estate in England’s verdant Oxfordshire county, Estelle Manor is a Grade II-listed landmark house that opened as a 108-bed hotel last year under the direction of Ennismore founder Sharan Pasricha.

The site is completed by the newly-revealed Eynsham Baths. Reached by a winding path and surrounded by centuries-old woodlands, the standalone building is defined by neoclassical architecture – sculpted columns, pilasters, hand-shaped bricks and carved marble details – in a nod to nearby Roman villa ruins.

Hydrothermal focus
A grand mezzanine bathing hall flooded with natural light lies at the heart of Eynsham Baths. Here guests can journey through five pools ranging in temperature or cool off through a series of walkthrough showers and plunge buckets.

Additional facilities include a hay sauna, hammam, steamroom, breathwork pool, tea lounge and 10 treatment rooms.

In recognition of Roman spa history, there’s a focus on thermodynamics where guests can experience a bathing circuit at their own pace or opt for one of two specially devised contrast bathing cycles.

Access to the spa and guided thermal journey costs hotel guests and visitors £95 (US$122, €112). It’s free, however, to members of Estelle Manor.

Thoughtful treatments
To give it a competitive edge, Eynsham Baths offers a carefully curated treatment menu. It took three years, for example, to formulate plant remedies on which its products are based – they’ve been hand-blended and “coaxed to life while mantras were played in the laboratory”.

Looking to the past again for inspiration, rituals are informed by some of the world’s oldest philosophies of health and longevity such as marma point massage and chakra healing, chi nei tsang and ku nye. Prices for these start at £180 (US$228, €210) for 60 minutes.

Meanwhile, treatments with master-in-residence Manos Dimoudis, who has more than two decades of experience in health and wellness across South Africa, Asia and Europe, begin at £220 (US$279, €256) for 60 minutes.

For modern enhancements, there’s IV therapy by NAD+, brow services by Suman Jalaf and cosmeceutical-based facials by Skin Design London.
