A complete spa experience in Malvern
12 September 2009
Natural resources and modern art join in harmony at MalvernSpa where guests can enjoy the benefits of bathing in natural spring water in one of the country’s original spa towns.
Located at the foot of the picturesque Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, a paradise for walkers and cyclists, MalvernSpa is an ultra modern spa hotel designed by local artist and property developer, John Williams. Combining middle England’s natural beauty, original artworks and the latest in spa facilities, MalvernSpa provides its guests with the perfect relaxing spa day or spa break.
Visitors to MalvernSpa can enjoy some exclusive spa facilities including the indoor and outdoor Hydrotherapy Pool fed by the world famous Malvern Spring waters. An evening ‘taking the waters’ in the outdoor pool whilst you watch the sun setting over the Malvern Hills is an experience not to be missed. The Kelo Sauna, the first of its kind in the UK, is constructed of naturally fragrant wood found only in the Arctic Circle which helps improve blood circulation, weight loss, skin cleansing and induce deep relaxation of both body and mind.
In addition the Thermal Suite contains a Salt Grotto heated to 49ºC which has a restorative effect on the respiratory system, Experience Showers with a choice of warm tropical rain or refreshing cool mist, Foot Spas for calming and cleansing, a Crystal Steam Room heated to 42ºC infused with essential oils, and a state-of-the-art Herb Sauna heated up to 85ºC, infused with seasonal herbs and essential oils to gently cleanse the body and mind.
The Spa features 10 treatment rooms offering a wide range of relaxing and indulgent treatments using products from ESPA and REN. MalvernSpa’s specialism lies in its ‘Miracle Massages’ which will tweak and tease the most knotted of muscles into surrender ready to tackle that next deadline, school run or even the Malvern Hills themselves!
There is a massage for every occasion including Stress Relief, Detox, Relaxation, Energizing, Pre-natal, Hot stones, as well as the traditional Swedish and Back Neck & Shoulder. In addition there are calming and age-defying facials, body wraps which will whittle away those lumps and bumps, scrubs to leave your skin smooth and radiant and specialist therapies such as Reflexology, Reiki and Hopi Ear Candling to restore and rebalance.
There is also a spacious, state-of-the-art 80 station gym complete with TV screens and personal I-pod docking stations available to both members and spa visitors. Plus a choice of over 30 fitness classes weekly.
In amongst ‘taking the waters’, working out and being pampered, guests at MalvernSpa can enjoy a selection of delicious hot and cold seasonal menus in the spa’s relaxed Bistro and Fine Dining Restaurant. MalvernSpa uses locally sourced and organic ingredients wherever possible. Alternatively you can chill out with a smoothie or coffee and catch up with your fellow guests in the spacious lounge amongst the 200yr old Olive trees. For those wanting time alone and complete peace, the spa’s relaxation room features a video wall showing gentle scenes of the English countryside, with babbling brooks reflecting the tranquility of the adjoining Malvern Hills which will transport you to another world altogether.
Overnight spa guests can enjoy one of the Spa Hotel’s 34 boutique en-suite bedrooms which include black-out curtains and hand crafted Hypnos beds with deep sprung pockets and Egyptian cotton sheets, guaranteed to give you one of your best night’s sleeps.
MalvernSpa has been built to protect the planet as well as its visitors. The spa’s eco-credentials include its own bore-hole accessing the world famous Malvern Spring waters 200m below the earth’s surface; solar panels to generate electricity; a heat recovery system which reclaims heat from the pool and re-circulates this around the building; and lighting in public areas which works on movement sensors to automatically switch off when the area is unused. The operating philosophy also reflects this eco-friendly approach with spa breaks offered at 10% reduction for guests arriving in Malvern by public transport.
MalvernSpa offers a range of day spa and short break packages with prices starting from £65 per person for a MalvernSpa Relax Day and £85 for a one night spa break.
