Chewton Glen Hotel, the exclusive destination in Hampshire UK, has commenced construction on an impressive new hydrotherapy pool, which will present a range of water therapy features including, air loungers, body massage jets, an air tub and whirlpool effects around the perimeter.
Scheduled to open in March 2003, the development heralds the final phase of a major expansion programme, which looks set to achieve new standards in hotel health, spa and fitness facilities.
The style concept for the new hydrotherapy pool was created by Stephenjohn Design Ltd, specialists in health and spa leisure environments, which counts clients such as The Elemis Spa at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas, among its professional portfolio.
John E Picken, MD of SJD says, “Hydrotherapy pools are fast becoming an important aspect within the hotel spa facilities. In response, Chewton Glen has commissioned this facility with all the latest advances in a quest to create the most idyllic destination hotel and country club. He added, “With this development, Chewton Glen is investing in serious hydrotherapy where everything is geared towards health improvements”.
Chewton Glen Hotel was originally built as a country House around the early 1800’s. Since 1966 it has been privately owned by Martin and Brigitte Skan, who have developed it from a 12 bedroom hotel into one of the world’s leading hotels, with 53 rooms and suites, set amidst 75 acres of sweeping lawns, wood and parkland.
The original Health Club and Spa, which was updated in 1990, has doubled in size following completion of the first expansion phase. This ambitious project comprised new treatment rooms which cater for over 40 body and facial therapies.
Peter Crome, MD at Chewton Glen concludes, “Chewton Glen is always looking to offer the ultimate service for its clients. In conjunction with our outdoor leisure facilities, we are aiming to provide a ‘total experience’ in terms of the public perception of relaxing activities - things that we should do everyday - but in reality just can’t find the time to fit them in”.
