In the new Mottram Hall Spa the lights are low, the pace is restful. Step into the gym and the latest fitness innovations will set the heart racing before you relax in the steaming new sauna and steam rooms. And there is still more to come as we found-out during our inspection tour.
It’s knowing where to start in the multi-million pound redeveloped leisure club and spa at the De Vere Mottram Hall. But don’t worry. There is plenty of wiling helpers on hand to guide you through this new world of work-outs, relaxation and luxury.
The Cheshire-based resort has become the newest and most sumptuous club and spa facility in the North West, which is now open following an extensive eight-week investment and redevelopment programme. It forms part of the first phase of the £6m development which also includes a complete overhaul of all bedrooms, restaurants, conference and golf facilities.
Smartphone users will be able to make the best of their time here.
The high-tech gym now features the most innovative Technogym mywellness Cloud equipment. It’s only available in a handful of fitness studios and allows members to sync their smartphones with the cardiovascular and weight machines so they can take advantage of bespoke monitoring systems and predefined programmes.
A specially designed sprung-floor spinning studio has also been added and the club will now be offering the latest rhythmic, stretch and exercise classes for members, as well as personal training sessions.
The existing 13m swimming pool has been completely transformed and a steaming new state-of-the-art sauna and steam rooms have been installed.
The Hall’s unique outdoor Thermal Spa Village will open soon and will incorporate exclusive Spavision experiences including the interesting Brechelbath. That replicates ancient Bavarian herbal steam-baths using the latest computer technology inside a specially designed luxury wooden cabin.
Guests can also expect to take advantage of another unique feature; the outdoor Haslauer Stonebath. It uses mineral stones heated in an oven and then dipped into cold water sending minerals and steam into the atmosphere – calming, revitalising and very wellbeing.
This month will see the introduction of newly refurbished lake-view bedrooms with private patios set in the beautiful grounds of the Hall complete with an optional butler service.
Leisure manager, Paul Blain, describes it as an exciting step forward into a new era of luxury. “I’m delighted to be able to offer customers old and new the ultimate leisure and fitness experience.”
Linda Crosby now leads a team of seven beauticians responsible for delivering more than 40 indulgent treatments. Technicians will be spearheading the latest innovation and products such as Espa and Jessica.
“We are delighted to be able to be giving customers everything an escape into a world of pure indulgence and leisure that helps to promote health and happiness,” she said.
