Hand Picked Hotels has unveiled plans for a £1.5m refurbishment of the spa and health club at its four-red-AA-star, 60-bedroom Fawsley Hall hotel in Daventry, Northamptonshire.
The project will include extensive landscaping and a new glazed wellness area, the expansion of the outdoor hydro pool with additional heat experiences, as well as an extensive relaxation area overlooking the gardens.
Indoors, the poolside will be revamped, a new sauna and steam rooms will be introduced, and the changing areas remodelled and upgraded. The gym area will also be extended to allow for additional training zones. A new coffee shop with seating area will serve spa lunches, afternoon teas, Champagne and cocktails along with a selection of refreshments and snacks, and healthy grab-andgo options.
Hand Picked Hotels' group health club and spa manager Lesley Bacon said: "I am delighted to be able to share these exciting plans with our hotel and spa guests, and of course our loyal health club members. This sizeable renovation programme has been carefully designed to provide them with truly first-class facilities both inside and out, and will underline Fawsley Hall's position as a leading destination for spa breaks and wellness in the Midlands. "
The scale of the redevelopment will see the facilities close from March until June while the structural refurbishment work is undertaken. During this time, coronavirus restrictions allowing, spa treatments will be available at the hotel in bedrooms that have been turned into treatment rooms.
The spa and health club are expected to reopen in early summer.
