A Renfrewshire hotel based near Howwood has opened a new health spa.
AURA Health Spa has opened at the Bowfield Hotel & Country Club, and it’s a perfect opportunity to escape into the countryside to rest, relax and rejuvenate.
The opening of AURA Health Spa concludes phase two of a massive £1.5million redevelopment plan for the Hotel which has been undertaken by hotel owners, Manorview Hotels & Leisure Group.
Bowfield Hotel already had existing spa facilities but a total revamp, extension and branding has led to the creation of a completely new space. AURA Health Spa includes the addition of seven individual treatment rooms, and two new relaxation areas accommodating eight beds which are discreetly separated by heavy shimmer bead curtain screens. There is also an internal sauna positioned to give views of the countryside through large windows.
AURA Health Spa’s décor incorporates natural earthy tones, which contribute to an atmospheric and sensual interior to create an overall ambience of quiet calm and relaxation.
Customer experience and comfort was foremost in the redevelopment plan, and every detail has been carefully considered, including the large Lemi beds, which came from Italy. These are extra large treatment beds, which will ensure the comfort of every visitor. Meanwhile luxurious high-end skincare brands Espa and Ishga will be used throughout AURA’s extensive range of treatments.
Visitors will be able to choose from a treatment list which includes everything from massages, facials, scrubs, body wraps, make-up, nails, and holistic treatments such as reflexology.
There is also a treatment selection dedicated to gents, which is something Spa Manager Laura Doran was keen to include.
Laura said, “Over the past two years there’s been a massive increase in male grooming and pampering. Guys are looking after themselves and I wanted to create a space for them. They can come and have spa day, visit with their friends or on their own, and we offer sports massages where they can ease their muscles after a workout”.
The first phase of Bowfield Hotel’s redevelopment plan was completed in June 2017 with the opening of a new restaurant called The Plumpy Duck, as well as a refit of an existing bar area which became The Stables Bar. A new reception area was also incorporated to accommodate visitors to the restaurant, bar, gym and spa. Attention was also given to the hotel exterior which included cladding, new roofs and an external beer garden.
Bowfield Hotel & Country Club already includes a state-of-the-art gym with a membership of 2,000, and the addition of AURA Health Spa cements Bowfield’s status as an outstanding and exclusive country club resort. The stunning views and quiet secluded countryside location make it a perfect escape from the hustle of the city. It’s also a bolthole within easy reach of Glasgow with excellent motorway access, and a 10 minute drive takes you to Glasgow Airport.
Looking further ahead to Spring 2018 – there are plans to add an external Jacuzzi and decking area. This external Jacuzzi will be large enough to comfortably accommodate 10 people and will be protected by a canopy, meaning guests can be outdoors in all seasons. Additional plans include a new function room and honeymoon suite.
Anthony Cowley, Property Development Director for the Manorview Group said, “The opening of AURA Health Spa reinforces Bowfield Hotel’s status as an exclusive countryside resort. There is something for everyone. Visitors can easily spend a full day at Bowfield taking advantage of the gym, restaurant, bar and spa. Added to that, there’s the stunning countryside and quiet location. We want people to come to Bowfield for an escape, to while away the hours and leave feeling refreshed and relaxed”.
