Gainsborough Bath Spa announces July opening

The Gainsborough Bath has confirmed it will be welcoming guests from July 1st 2015. 

The hotel is the first and only hotel in the UK to offer its visitors the opportunity to access and experience Bath’s famed natural thermal waters in its incredible spa.

The opening marks YTL Hotels’ latest addition to its impressive international portfolio and is their first property in the UK. 

The hotel is a member of the prestigious The Leading Hotels of the World.


Spa Village Bath at The Gainsborough Bath Spa is a new world-class exclusive spa in the city that extols all the natural virtues of the city’s healing thermal waters giving guests a majestic spa journey that will keep them coming back again and again.

Following YTL Hotels international brand concept, Spa Village Bath has been conceptualised to honour the healing traditions of Bath.

Since pre-Roman times people have flocked to mend their bodies in the thermal springs of Bath.

The hotel’s private water reserve bubbles to the surface at 47 degrees centigrade, packed full of rich natural minerals, for the hotel’s guests to reap the benefits in this totally immersive experience coupled with the timeless venerated British use of aromatherapy, the healing culture will continue.

Reviving the ancient practise of social bathing, The Gainsborough Bath Spa has created a one hour ‘Bath Circuit’. 

A ritualised self-guided tour of the thermal pools, saunas, steam room, ice alcove and elegant relaxation rooms, visitors will embark on a bathing journey akin to ancient Rome, concluding with a very special Water Ritual Ceremony.

Three thermal pools lie in the heart of the spa set apart by Romanesque columns and beneath a glass atrium.

The Aroma Bar provides guests with a plethora of lotions and potions from which they can blend their very own oils.

In harmony with Spa Village Bath’s healing concept, UK organic skin care brand Neal’s Yard, luxury skin care company, Kerstin Florian, and the Natru certified organic line, Amala, will be the Gainsborough Bath Spa’s partners.

An exclusive Spa Suite and two further spa rooms will be the only guest rooms in the UK to offer in-bath access to the thermal waters via a second tap, giving guests the extraordinary choice of bathing in thermal water.
