The UK’s elegant spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire is to get a wellbeing boost with the rise of The Harrogate Spa, a new luxury destination spa which is part of a £15 million renovation of the new DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa launching in November 2019.
The town of Harrogate has a rich tradition of spa and restorative treatments going back over 200 years. Drinking or bathing in the mineral waters of Harrogate was by the 19th century part of a daily routine prescribed by doctors. This attracted visitors from far and wide to ‘take the waters’ with The Majestic recognised as ‘the town’s finest address’.
The Harrogate Spa will be the place to soak up the wellbeing benefits of the town’s spa heritage. Complete with a 12.5 metre indoor pool and six treatment rooms (two of which are double), this luxury spa will offer a range of therapeutic thermal experiences including a spa pool, Himalayan salt sauna, steam room, Rasul, experience shower and ice fountain. There is also a tranquil relaxation lounge leading out to a Zen and Courtyard spa garden where guests can enjoy beautiful surroundings in nature; a Spa Café and Terrace, fully equipped gym and studio.
The Harrogate Spa will be offering a full range of results driven face and body treatments from world leading spa brands: ESPA, Thalgo, Carita and Jessica. These will include unique and indulgent spa rituals and stress-relieving and age-defying treatments to holistic and mindful massages as well as manicures and pedicures. A choice of day spa and spa break packages will also be available.
For local residents, an exclusive Harrogate Spa & Leisure membership will be available including 24 hour gym access, full studio timetable and a host of benefits.
Announcing the news, Lynn Roach, Spa Director of The Harrogate Spa said
“We are very excited to be launching The Harrogate Spa which will be the jewel in the crown of The Majestic Hotel. We have worked carefully to incorporate the rich heritage of our spa town location combining this with the latest in beauty and wellbeing and a world class service from our spa team. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the first guests to our beautiful new spa later this year.”
Confirming the development, The Majestic Hotel’s General Manager, Matthew Hole added:
“The development of The Harrogate Spa is an important part of our overall redevelopment at The Majestic as we take the hotel back to its Victorian heyday. We are extremely proud to be adding to the wellbeing benefits of our spa town location and positioning The Harrogate Spa as a leading destination spa, attracting visitors from far and wide.”
