TA Hotel Collection is continuing its dynamic development programme with the opening of its first spa on 30th March at the 15th century Swan Hotel in Lavenham. Described as an enchanting retreat for the senses, Weavers’ House Spa focuses on total relaxation, enjoyment and wellbeing. The TA Hotel Collection is a group of award winning, luxury hotels and businesses located across the beautiful county of Suffolk and one of East Anglia’s leading independent tourism businesses.
The development of Weavers’ House Spa represents a major investment for the TA Hotel Collection. Delighted to see the completed project Managing Director Grahame Tinnion said; “We have long had ambitions to enter the spa market and in Weavers’ I believe we have delivered a truly market leading take on a treatment based spa. Above all we wanted to bring the very highest standards of service and comfort to our spa guests and give them an experience that is second to none. I am thrilled with the end product and we can now look forward to welcoming our first guests through the door and know they will have a fantastic spa experience.”
Featuring the Temple Spa range of professional products, Weavers’ House Spa offers a stunning range of over 30 results-orientated treatments and features six treatment rooms, a steam room, hot stone sauna and an outdoor vitality pool, plus a retail boutique.
Located in the heart of the medieval wool town of Lavenham, The Swan Hotel is a very impressive listed building, and in adding the spa it was critical that it was sympathetic to its surroundings. Architect and designer Roger Balmer commented; “Our rational behind the build was to create a cool, calm environment that worked well with the beautiful older buildings.
“The building has excellent environmental credentials with heating provided by a deep ground source heat pump and most of the water coming from an onsite borehole.”
Interiors have been styled by the highly respected London based design firm, Todhunter Earle. Partner Kate Earle added, “We had a relaxed, country, contemporary vision for the new spa with a focus on natural finishes. We have used bleached oak, stone, plaster, reclaimed timber, Suffolk sourced naturally dyed linens and large panels of glass to bring the outside in”.
