A NEW “destination” spa is expected to bring in visitors from far afield when it opens its doors in July.

The Spa at Bedford Lodge in Newmarket, which opens on July 3, says it will be offering “a genteel and discreet escape from daily life for both ladies and gentlemen”.

The £3million spa, which lies next to the hotel, is housed in a Victorian built property which once formed part of the estate of the sixth Duke of Bedford.

The development has retained many of the building’s original features including the grand staircase and high ceilings which have been restored.

Facilities include a mezzanine hydrotherapy pool with shoulder massage fountains and views over the paddocks, an outdoor rooftop hot tub, cleansing and detoxing mud treatments, experiential showers which stimulate the senses with a combination of music, lights and water. and a steam room and sauna.

A “decadent” relaxation room will be available for private parties, and the spa includes 10 treatment rooms including a beauty room for manicures and pedicures and a therapy room for visiting cosmetic doctors offering non invasive procedures.

The Spa lounge will offer guests a chance to catch up with friends while enjoying a selection of healthy or indulgent light bites.
