The Hot: Cliveden unveils new spa

By Barbara Bohn on 8/14/2017

The restoration of England’s 350-year-old Cliveden House includes a very modern update of its spa space.

The multimillion-pound renovation – the hotel declined to give exact numbers – of the country house was done by Formation Architects.

The spa’s interior swimming pool

The centerpiece of the spa, which is linked to the house within covered walkway and a walled garden, is the outdoor swimming pool (at which Christine Keeler met British M.P. John Profumo, an event that led to an international scandal and Profumo’s resignation).

Spa interior

The spa includes a gym, indoor heated pool, infrafred sauna, aromatherapy steam room, indoor Jacuzzi, outdoor hot tubs, seven treatment rooms, and a manicure, pedicure and hair-dressing studio.

Swimming pool

The spa also includes a restaurant with views over the garden and outdoor dining. The estate is surrounded by 376 acres of National Trust gardens; the building itself is owned by the National trust and operated under a long-lease arrangement by the owners, Iconic Luxury.
