January 2020 saw the exciting launch of Britain’s newest luxury destination spa in Cheshire, The Spa at Carden. Offering world class facilities and one of the UK’s largest spa gardens. One year on, The Spa at Carden celebrates its first anniversary with award-wins, a 5 Bubble luxury rating, a host of celebrity fans, official home to the I’m A Celebrity contestants and five-star reviews from the UK media. What’s more, the spa has had the pleasure of welcoming over 15,000 guests through its doors.
Officially opened on the 6th January 2020, it wasn’t the smoothest of years to open a new spa with the challenge of Covid-19 causing the doors of the spa to be shut for many months. However, in the months that the spa was able to open safely, as well as becoming Covid secure, The Spa at Carden has developed into a major destination spa in the UK with google searches rising over 500%. With a team of 50 spa staff, the majority of whom live locally, the spa has gone from strength to strength and has hit many milestones in its first 12 months, despite the challenges. Scooping up the prestigious award of ‘Best New Spa’ in the 2020 Good Spa Guide Awards and receiving an inaugural ‘Five Bubble Luxury Rating’, joining only 15 other spas in the UK who have achieved this, it’s no surprise that The Spa at Carden has become a favourite of leading beauty editors and celebrities, as well as the ‘spa to be seen’ in Cheshire and a first-choice destination spa for guests nationwide.
Offering a world class experience like no other, the 4,500 sqm standalone spa is set within the 1,000-acre grounds of the privately owned Carden Park Hotel. Its indoor and outdoor facilities are amongst the most impressive in the UK. Offering an expansive multi-sensory experience of wellbeing, The Spa at Carden is home to one of the largest spa gardens in the UK and with numerous thermal experiences and all-weather Bollinger champagne bar, it can be enjoyed all year round. Expertly developed to provide guests with a ‘nature rest’, the extensive facilities enable a journey to improved physical and mental wellbeing. An exclusive menu of treatments by Elemental Herbology, OKSIA, Margaret Dabbs and Jessica and views of the sweeping countryside, The Spa at Carden is looking forward to an even more successful second year.
Speaking on The Spa at Carden’s first anniversary, Leisure and Spa Manager Emma Pridding says, “Despite the challenges, this year has been an incredible first year and credit must go to the entire team for their resilience and positivity. Our team has provided an unrivalled spa experience to our guests and it has been a pleasure to see many happy customers. This year has also been a very exciting one with our celebrity guests and being home to ITV’s I’m a Celebrity contestants was a fantastic experience. We are hoping that our second year will see the end to Covid-19 and that we will see our spa able to reopen soon and welcome our guests”.
