A Bury St Edmunds-based spa is celebrating a £375,000 facelift.

The Bannatyne Spa, formerly known as Clarice House, is one of 37 spa sites across the UK run by the Bannatyne Group, which was founded by chairman Duncan Bannatyne.

It has undergone extensive renovation work to create new state-of-the-art treatment and relaxation rooms to meet the group’s corporate standard. Luxury skincare brand Elemis has created its own unique retail space at the five star venue.

Improvements to the treatment and relaxation rooms include the addition of walnut finish Karndean floors, and bespoke heated mosaic treatment beds, which come with mood lighting and music.

An Elemis retail boutique includes a Skin Reveal machine, offering customers the chance to have their skin assessed, using facial mapping analysis techniques.

A dedicated in-house skin expert will also offer lifestyle consultations with skincare solutions for the spa’s customers.

The spa offers treatments for men and women from a range of other leading brands, as well as treatments specifically designed by The Bannatyne Group’s own trained therapists.
