UK-based The Bannatyne Group reveals major spa upgrade programme

UK-based The Bannatyne Group has invested heavily in the spa arm of the business after announcing the refurbishment of five spas in the past month.

In a bid to bring its members the “best health, fitness and relaxation facilities”, the group has spent £1 million on the upgrade of its health club in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, with the work including a redesign of the spa. 

The number of treatment beds has increased from seven to 12 and a new relaxation room is also being built, featuring eight heated loungers and four water beds.

Martin Atkins, general manager at Bannatyne Health Club and Spa Mansfield, said: “The new look health club and spa is amazing and has vastly increased our offering to clients and members.

"We offer members a holistic fitness and wellbeing experience, whether they want an intensive work out, gentle swim, relaxing spa treatment, or all three.”

Tomorrow will see the VIP opening of the company’s new upgraded spa at its Wakefield health club. This is part of a £500,000 refurbishment and features six treatment rooms, an OPI branded manicure and pedicure area, and a relaxation area with waterbeds and heated loungers – as well as a sauna, steam room, spa pool and newly-refurbished café bar.

Meanwhile, the group recently opened the doors to a new spa at its Blackpool site. The £80,000 investment included five treatment beds (with one dual room) and manicure and pedicure stations using products from Elemis and OPI. Six new jobs were also created at the club.

The Bannatyne Group has additionally opened a new spa in Crewe, Cheshire, offering an extensive range of full body, facial and specialist treatments, and unveiled its upgraded Colchester spa, which underwent a £1m refurbishment.

Back in May 2016, the group announced plans to add 16 more spas to its portfolio during 2016 and 2017.
