Paul Harrison, managing director of the award-winning Ribby Hall Village has confirmed that the much anticipated opening of the Spa Hotel will take place in July 2011. The £5 million luxury development includes extensive spa facilities that aim to rival the very best in the country plus a 42-bedroom hotel all located within the 100-acres of landscaped grounds for which Ribby Hall Village is renowned. Designed to meet the exacting and expansive needs of both the Spa Break and Spa Day markets, no stone has been left unturned in terms of creating a wow factor that will bowl over even a seasoned spa-lover.
As well as creating an exclusive adult-only spa destination in the North West, the Spa Hotel at Ribby Hall Village will also provide a much needed boost to the local and regional visitor economy. The scheme will create 70 new jobs (the majority of which are for local people) and will complement the existing and extensive family-friendly facilities at Ribby Hall Village. An extensive recruitment drive is also currently underway.
The Spa Hotel at Ribby Hall Village will offer one of the most extensive collections of treatments, physical therapies and wellbeing services in the UK, some of which will be UK-firsts.
In addition to the spa facilities, which include 14 treatments rooms, a hydrotherapy and thermal journey and one of the UK’s largest wet areas, there will be a brasserie and bar, gym and 42 beautifully appointed bedrooms, including three penthouses and 12 suites.
Inside The Spa Hotel, the interior design concept has been designed by one of the world’s leading experts in leisure, hotel and spas, Malcolm King, whose work spans such illustrious projects as The Plaza - New York, Westin Raffles City - Singapore, the Royal Yacht, Hotel and Spa - Jersey, Mango Bay Hotel -Barbados, The Regency InterContinental - Bahrain and the MGM Hotel Casino - Las Vegas.
Paul Harrison, Managing Director at Ribby Hall Village, says: “We have created The Spa Hotel at Ribby Hall Village in response to consumer demand for a new North West luxury spa destination.”
“This will be a valuable addition to Lancashire’s leisure tourism offering, while providing local people who are keen to invest in their personal well-being, a high-end yet affordable day spa facility where they can be assured of superlative customer service. This latest development is an integral element to our overarching vision for Ribby Hall Village as one of the UK’s best independent short break, spa and business tourism destinations.”
