Rockliffe Hall is investing a further £180,000 in its spa with plans for new thermal rooms and experience features to develop the resort's existing five star spa offering.
It follows a £200,000 refurbishment of Rockliffe's gym at the end of 2018.
A new Igloo, Infrared Sauna and Experience Showers will be added to the spa's thermal suite. The Tropicarium (sauna) and Foot Spa will be enhanced, together with a salt inhalation system installed in the Caldarium (steam room). 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. This state-of-the-art waterbed enables deep relaxation, anti-stress sound therapy and aids mindfulness, meditation and wellbeing.
One of the most exciting additions is the Infrared Sauna. New research indicates that regular use of infrared saunas significantly lowers death rates from cardiovascular disease and stroke, and also reduces the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's.
The carefully planned, phased development, will take place in April and early May, and to ensure guests can still enjoy the spa facilities, all pools will remain open throughout.
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.”
