Rudding Park, Harrogate’s leading luxury hotel, is delighted to announce that its £9.5 million spa development is nearing completion with a highly-anticipated opening on 2 May 2017. Rudding Park Spa will bring a world destination spa to the heart of Yorkshire for the very first time, as well as re-capturing Harrogate’s spa town heritage by drawing natural waters from the grounds of Rudding Park.

Rudding Park Spa will introduce a revolutionary new spa journey for all. From organic treatments inspired by nature to chef Murray Wilson’s kitchen garden cuisine at Horto Cafe, as well as experiences ranging from herbal infused steam and sauna suites, Moorish mud treatments and the healing benefits of bathing in therapeutic waters. Wellness of mind, body and soul will form the foundations of Rudding Park Spa, with an emphasis on bringing the best of the outdoors in.

Meticulously designed to capture and reflect the beauty of its natural surroundings, Rudding Park Spa will introduce an awe-inspiring Roof Top Spa and Garden, which promises to take guests to new heights of rejuvenation and relaxation.

Rudding Park Roof Top Spa Garden will be a UK first, a master-piece of design curated by horticulturalist Matthew Wilson, an expert in his field who regularly appears on Gardener’s Question Time on BBC Radio 4. The Roof Top Spa Garden will provide a haven of peace and tranquillity for guests to enjoy the Garden Sauna Cabin, Sun Deck and Spa Bath, amongst beautiful trees, shrubs and plants.

The Roof Top Spa will feature a Hydrotherapy Infinity Pool drawing guests outdoors and a Panoramic Sauna infused with seasonal scents of flora and fauna, which both overlook the beautifully landscaped gardens of Rudding Park. Continuing the wellness journey, the Roof Top Spa will also offer a Herbal Bath Steam Room emitting aromas of lavender and euka-menthol, a Luxury Steam Room with a soaring mosaic dome, an ice fountain to boost circulation and the immune system, as well as a relaxing Foot Spa, warming Evo lounge beds and an Experience Shower for warming tropical rain and a refreshing cool mist.

Rudding Park Spa will also offer a lifestyle boutique, hairdresser and beauty salon, as well as four immersive sensory zones to enhance wellness of mind, body and soul. These unique Mind and Sense Zones include a Visual zone with lapping waves, wildflower meadows and mountainscapes, a Relax zone for complete peace and quiet, an Audio zone for soothing meditation tracks and a Mind zone for colouring therapy and reading.
