Lucknam Park was chosen as our September Spa of the Month because of it’s sheer beauty, idyllic combination of heritage, luxury and unspoiled grounds, and the therapists dedication to creating bespoke treatments to pamper their guests with. To honour this, we conducted an interview with one of our highly trained therapists in Lucknam Park to find out more about the grounds, the treatments and the stunning facilities.
Why is Lucknam Park such a special place?
Lucknam Park is a magnificent country house hotel located just six miles from the historic city of Bath
It is a Palladian mansion dating from 1720 which was maintained as a family home until 1987 when it opened its doors as one of the UK’s top country house hotels. Set in 500 acres of listed parkland and beautiful gardens, Lucknam Park has been lovingly restored to the elegance and style of the past era.
What is dry flotation, and can you explain the benefits?
Dry flotation is when your body is cocooned and submerged on a thin membrane that surrounds the body, allowing you to float in a peaceful, almost weightless environment without touching the water. The bed is heated to 37 degrees. This is a perfect way to relieve stress, muscular aches, pains and anxiety promoting relaxation.
Can you tell us about Lucknam Park’s separate Wellbeing House?
Taking a holistic approach to your well-being, the purpose built well-being house at Lucknam Park offers a studio for Yoga and Pilates with a selection of classes each day.
The Reformer room is available for one to one sessions with a personal instructor, the state of the art equipment has been designed for those who wish to enhance their core fitness using a variety of muscle groups aimed at toning the physique.
