UK's Buxton Crescent and Thermal Spa turns up the heat

by Helen Andrews | 17 Jun 2014

The Buxton Crescent and Thermal Spa project in Derbyshire, UK, is moving forward with tenders for the building works to be issued in July with a view to commencing work in October 2014.

The 79-bedroom five-star spa hotel – jointly owned by Derbyshire County Council and High Peak Borough Council – is expected to open at some point in 2016.

The spa will include thermal and wet treatment areas such as a sauna, saunarium, infrared sauna, ice room, aroma room, steamroom, salt grotto. The two existing basement pools – one for men and one for women – will both be completely refurbished.

Carbon dioxide and peat-infused baths will also be on offer, in addition to hydro massage and a hydrotherapy bath for couples. Dalesauna, suppliers of thermal and wet experience zones are operating as specialist consultants for the spa.

Danubius Hotels will operate the new spa, bringing medical expertise and traditional therapies to guests. CP Holdings – Majority owner of Danubius Hotels – and Trevor Osborne Property Group are developing the spa – having invested a total of £15m (US$24.8m, €18m) in the project between them both.

Other funding includes £12.4m (US$20.5m, €14.9m) from the Heritage Lottery Fund, £500,000 (US$800,000 €600,000) from English Heritage and £2m (US$3.3m, €2.4m) from the local authorities who own the site.
