Dalesauna Develops Luxury Thermal Experiences

Dalesauna is creating a range of bespoke thermal experiences for the lavish Gainsborough Bath Spa, the only hotel in the UK to have direct access to natural thermal waters. Due to open to the public in spring, the five star development from YTL Hotels will be the Malaysian group’s first Classic Hotel in the UK. The scheme sits directly opposite the Thermae Bath Spa and involves the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Gainsborough Building in Bath city centre as well as two other buildings into a 99 bedroom hotel with a spa and conference facilities. Located over two floors, the hotel’s 1,300sq m Spa Village Bath will have direct access to Bath’s famous waters through three therapeutic pools set within an atrium. Dalesauna was appointed by main contractor Galliford Try and is working with celebrated interior design firm Champalimaud Design, whose previous projects include The Carlyle in New York and The Dorchester in London, on the design of the new thermal area. Dalesauna is supplying a number of thermal experiences for the luxurious space including a salt steam room designed to cater for six to eight guests with LED lighting and bespoke glass mosaic tiles from Trend in hues of brown.

A pine herbal sauna features a conventional sauna heater and a stainless steel herb tray for the infusion of fresh herbs. As well as the traditional herbal sauna, guests can relax in an infrared sauna, also in pine, with a single tier of bench seating and five infrared heaters. These emit infrared light, which is experienced as radiant heat and absorbed by the surface of the skin for a number of health benefits including the removal of toxins. The sauna also features a wall of Himalayan salt to soothe respiratory and skin conditions. Finally, Dalesauna is creating a bespoke walk-in ice grotto and two experience showers.

Orla Moore adds: “The main benefits of the changing village design is that it offers completely private, individual changing and shower cubicles; allows easy access to the pool for disabled users and direct access to the gym and sauna from the main changing rooms.”
