Boutique botanical spa to open in Cambridge
POSTED 09 May 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
A new luxury wellness retreat is set to launch next month in Cambridge, England.

Located within the manicured grounds of the four-star Gonville Hotel, Gresham House Wellness has been inspired by the hotel’s gardens and surrounding parklands, and will house three wellness treatment rooms and eight feature bedrooms.

The wellness centre will take guests through a sensory journey with botanical scents and sounds of nature echoing throughout.

The spa menu has been crafted in partnership with the UK skincare brand ESPA, and will include Optimal Skin Pro Facials, Holistic Total Body Ritual Massages, Advanced Body Cocoons and Jessica nail treatments. Ahead of the ESPA ‘For You’ Facial, therapists will perform a skin analysis with a special SkinVision lamp, allowing them to select the right products to compliment a guest’s individual needs.

Gresham House Wellness will offer a mindfulness massage range, featuring breathing and visualisation techniques to reduce stress, and enhance emotional and physical wellbeing.

Guests can extend their spa retreat with an overnight stay in one of the new feature bedrooms. Designed to exude botanical characteristics, each room has been named after a Latin flower, including the ‘Rosa,’ ‘Lavandula’ and ‘Delphinium.’

Considerable care has gone into restoring Gresham House, a 180-year-old Victorian Villa, which sits within Central Cambridge Conservation Area. As a building of 'special architectural or historic interest’, Gonville Hotel has worked closely with restoration experts to ensure it retains its period charm, with the original French windows, and etched-glass work still intact.

“We wanted to create a place of tranquillity within the town where locals and visitors to Cambridge can relax and rejuvenate,” said Edward Adshead, general manager of Gresham House Wellness. “The Wellness Centre has been inspired by the beauty, and peacefulness of Cambridge itself, and we are working closely with restoration experts to ensure the history of Gresham House is celebrated. We are currently putting in the finishing touches, and look forward to welcoming guests from across Cambridge and beyond this June.”
