A NEW destination for relaxation and indulgence officially opened its doors this week.
Dream Spa, at Gomersal Park Hotel, was launched by Mayor of Kirklees Coun Paul Kane and boasts an open air hydrotherapy pool, steam room, saunas, bistro area and foot spa stations.
The Moor Lane hotel, which is privately owned, has invested £1.5 million in completely redeveloping its old gym and pool area to create a state-of-the-art spa that is open to the public and hotel guests.
Dream Spa features individual treatment rooms, ‘experience’ showers, an ice drop, mud rasul chamber, swimming pool, manicure and pedicure area and a new gymnasium.
There is also a private spa treatment room with its own vitality bath and mud rasul area, where couples can indulge in treatments together.
The launch event on Monday was attended by firms who had contributed to the project, local councillors and members of the media and was marked by the release of 100 balloons with tags attached.
One balloon contained a voucher for two free treatments at the spa, and for every tag that is returned the hotel will donate £10 to Mayor Paul Kane’s charity for the year, Diabetes UK.
Coun Kane (Lab, Dewsbury East) was given a tour of the facility and said: “People really have to come and see for themselves how impressive this really is.
“To be making a £1.5million investment in the borough is fantastic, and this really has the wow factor.”
The spa was designed by Mark Green of Curveline Design, based on Oxford Road in Gomersal, and took 18 weeks to construct.
Gomersal Park have built out into a courtyard area to create more space, and manager Gavin Jack added: “This is a new era for the hotel.”
A seven-strong team of therapists officially opened the spa to the public last night (Thurs), and details of packages are available at www.gomersalparkhotel.com/dream-spa.
