The Sequoia spa at five-star The Grove hotel, UK, has appointed Kirsty MacCormick as spa director.

MacCormick, who has spent 25 years in the wellness industry, previously worked in the Asia Pacific region for 10 years, holding spa director roles with the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group in Beijing and Tokyo.

During this time MacCormick was responsible for launching the spa at the hotel group’s Tokyo property, which resulted in her being awarded the Mandarin Oriental Spa Division Golden Fan Award for personal excellence.

MacCormick also worked with spa management and consultancy firm, Spatality, as well as Onyx Hotel Group, where she rebranded the spa offering across the group.

On her return to the UK, she continued with consultancy and pre-opening projects and developed her own nail salon brand, The Nail Yard, in Edinburgh.

Over the course of her career, MacCormick has also worked for Hilton, Champneys Health Resorts and Kohler.

The announcement follows Sequoia spa’s £300,000 refurbishment last year, which added Technogym equipped fitness facilities and new wellbeing offerings, including treatments from ESPA, Natura Bissé, Aesthetics Collective and OSKIA.

Located in the Hertfordshire countryside, The Grove hotel is the ancestral home of the Earls of Clarendon and offers 215 guestrooms, restaurants and leisure facilities.
