Lowry Hotel Spa Scoops Top Awards

Manchester’s most prestigious hotel, The Lowry Hotel, has won two awards for its urban spa, which has gone from strength to strength since opening in 2001.

The luxury Health Spa has been crowned one of the ‘World’s best spas’ in the Cond‘ Nast Traveller ‘Readers’ Spa Awards’, in addition to being commended by leading society and lifestyle magazine, Harpers & Queen.

With the help of the Spa’s Manger, holistic expert Jane Turner, new and innovative techniques have been introduced to the Spa over the past two years, complimenting the programme of existing treatments that have been in place since its launch.

The latest introduction to the initiative is a new lunchtime express treatment service so now busy people can still be beautiful ones! Between 12pm and 2pm, The Lowry Health Spa therapists will be welcoming clients for a wide range of lunch hour treatments including staples such as express waxing treatments. Bookings can be made at short notice and are available between Monday and Thursday by calling the spa direct on 0161 827 4034.

For a more sensual experience, the Lowry Spa is also introducing its ‘Foot Ritual’. Guests are invited to sip herbal tea while a spa specialist cleanses and exfoliates their feet. This first stage of relaxation is followed by a calming massage in preparation for an invigorating hot stone treatment. The complete foot ritual takes 25 minutes to perform, costs only £35 and will leave clients ready to step out with new vigour.


Described by Cond‘ Nast Traveller as exuding a ‘warm and calming atmosphere’, The Lowry Spa is the perfect retreat to escape from the pace of city life. As a holistic Spa there is a wide availability of treatments such as reiki and reflexology and the core ethos of the Spa is to treat the mind, body and soul as one.

Spa manager Jane Turner comments: “We treat mind, body and soul as one and use natural products to enhance the whole life cycle. We educate people to reward their bodies for the efforts they put them through, to relax and re-balance themselves in a haven away from the busy city.

“To win both of these awards is wonderful as it shows that The Spa is being recognized and rewarded for being a first class spa. Here at The Lowry Spa we employ the very best staff, techniques and provide our clients with the very best treatments to ensure they get the absolute most out of their time here.
