Sit back, robe up and relax. The award-winning Chewton Glen hotel has unveiled its sleek new spa look – here’s all the details for a day of countryside pampering
A day of pure relaxation has never been quite so enticing, especially after several long months of lockdown and heightened stress levels.
Following a complete refurb, the latest phase in the development of the world-class spa at Chewton Glen has been unveiled – and it’s the perfect countryside spa escape.
The design transformation comes courtesy of Anita Rosato, giving the space both soothing ahh-mbience and artistic style.
Start the experience with a dip in Chewton Glen’s spa’s fabulous 17 metre indoor pool. Flooded with natural light, Anita’s interior design scheme incorporates elegant new wall murals which hint at the hotel’s countryside location.
New tiling also reflects the refreshed colour scheme, with muted colours encouraging relaxation, and new pool furniture offering the ultimate in spa day comfort.
In addition to the physical transformation of the spa, the new space has debuted an exciting new spa treatment menu, including two alfresco treehouse treatments. The ‘stripped back’ spa menu – the first of its kind in the UK – has taken a ‘less is more approach’ that will see therapists create fully bespoke treatments for guests.
Choose from an array of fully individualised treatments, such as Oskia facials, warm oil massages, and recovery-based body treatments.
From the indoor pool, guests can enjoy the stunning setting of the hydrotherapy spa, which takes the ancient tradition of the ‘water cure’ and offers it in a luxurious modern setting.
The spacious pool has six hi-tech therapy options: an ‘air-tub’, which provides an all-over bubbly Jacuzzi-like effect; an ‘air bench’, that softly massage your body while you are seated; powerful body jets, used to target specific muscles and joints; 60 ‘pin prick’ jets, which provide a deep lower body massage; blissfully relaxing air loungers, for ergonomically controlled, therapeutic body massages; and a central pool offering neck and shoulder massages of varying pressure.
In addition to the water-based activities, the design team have also refreshed the changing room facilities and the relaxed setting of the Pool Bar restaurant – where a deliciously healthy menu awaits to be sampled.
In line with Covid-19 guidelines, Chewton Glen has also introduced a range of strict safety and hygiene measures, which include limiting the spa to residents and members only, disinfecting surfaces between each client, electrostatic sanitisation and regular disinfecting of the gym, indoor and outdoor pools.
Commenting on the transformation of the spa facilities at Chewton Glen, Kerry Hudson, Spa Director of Iconic Luxury Hotels said: “If there was ever a time for self-care it is now, and the health and safety for our guests and staff remains the first priority. The new facilities will provide our Spa Members with a fabulous environment in which to continue to enjoy the numerous benefits of membership of the Chewton Glen Spa.
By their very nature, spas have always had extremely strict hygiene protocols, so this is already an inbuilt part of the way we work but while existing protocols will remain in place, there are also going to be additional updates and extra precautions taken to protect the wellbeing of both guests and therapists.
It is undoubtedly a testament to the energy, passion and creativity of the entire team at Chewton Glen and the investment and commitment of our ownership, that we are focused on continually improving and innovating”.
