BTN Spa of the Week: Chakra Spa

BTN Spa of the Week: Chakra Spa

The Chakra Spa at the four-star Felbridge Hotel recently underwent a refurbishment that puts it in competition with any top city spa or luxury country retreat.

Adjoining Gatwick’s premier hotel in picturesque surroundings that ease your mind, it’s easy to see how it attracts weekend groups looking for that special getaway such as hen parties, birthdays and weddings.

The five treatment room Spa is the success story of Joanna Murdoch who has blended new age therapies with a wealthy of experience and knowledge of traditional spa remedies to create a sanctuary of wellness and calm.

The Elemis Anti Aging Facial is a symphony of serums creams and masks delicately presented on a heated massage table in a wooden candlelit room, filled with the smell of warm oils saturating your senses and allowing your mind to drift away.

Between cleanses, masks and rehydration treatment you receive a thoroughly agreeable neck and shoulder massage that feels as though it realigns your spine and helps you to walk taller and with greater ease once the session is over.


The spa uses exclusively Elemis product and it is clear to see from the results of the facial why. In a world overrun with miracle creams and disappointing treatments that promise you the earth, Elemis stands firm as a brand you can reply on.

The product promises 38% increased moisture and 28% increased elasticity after a single treatment, which made me initially rather sceptical, however the results were astounding.

Anything that promises regained youthful complexion in one treatment has to be worth a try and this treatment doesn’t disappoint.

Based in the historic town of East Grinstead, the Spa offers weekend breaks that include polo, tennis, golf and even shooting lessons, plus a fully-equipped gym, heated pool and spa pool, sauna and steam room. A nd with the addition of the Bay Tree Brasserie, the Anise fine dining restaurant and the Qube Bar, this 120 room country hotel really does have everything that you need for that something special break.

“Many of our clients want to come here and relax, but just as many want to combine their treatments with activities that make their relaxation time so very well deserved!” said Joanna Murdoch.
