First new thermal spa hotel for Bath as YTL announces The Gainsborough

by Aoife Dowling | 24 Aug 2013

YTL Hotels, part of Malaysian conglomerate YTL Corporation Berhad, has announced a new hotel and spa project in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, UK.

The Gainsborough Bath Spa, the company's first Classic Hotel in the UK, will open early in 2014. The hotel will have direct access to Bath's natural thermal waters.

The 99-room property is located on Beau Street and made up of three historical buildings, each with a Grade II listed Georgian façade. It was originally built as the United Hospital in 1824, with designs by renowned 18th century architect, John Pinch.

The lower level of the new hotel will be home to the Spa Village Bath and thermal pools. Located over two floors, the 1,300sq m (14,000sq ft) spa will offer guests the opportunity to bathe in Bath's thermal waters in three therapeutic pools.

The spa village was designed to reflect Bath's Roman history and the pools are set within an atrium which is flooded with natural light. The spa will also have Malaysian influences.

YTL Corporation Berhad is listed on both the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange and the Tokyo bourse and trades internationally in construction, construction-related industries and power generation.

YTL Hotels is involved in ownership and management of hotels from moderately priced to high end. It also operates luxury trains. The company has stated its intention to expand aggressively on an international basis in both mature and emerging markets, especially through local partnerships.

In addition to the Bath Spa hotel, YTL Hotels is also developing a resort on the island of Pulau Tiga, Malyasia, where it will build 65 sea-facing villas, each with private pool and dedicate spa treatment area. The island is one of a chain formed in 1897 by a volcanic eruption off Borneo.
