‘Ultra luxury’ Barbados hotel The House to add spa this year

24 Jul 2017
Elegant Hotels Group has revealed plans to open a luxury spa at The House hotel on the western coast of Barbados.

Designed by Clive Booker of DSI hospitality and spa industry veteran Berni Hawkins, the spa is due to open in October 2017.

Facilities include two private treatment rooms – one of which is a couples' room – a plunge pool, relaxation area and an intimate yoga pavilion.

A treatment menu has yet to be confirmed, but will include a range of massages, facials, pedicures and other beauty services.

The House is an ultra-luxury boutique hotel with 34 guestrooms.

According to a spokesperson, the introduction of a spa is part of a larger redevelopment that will see the hotel place more focus on wellness.

“In the spirit of encouraging guests to disconnect and indulge, the existing gym and library will be converted into a spa,” he said.

“With two private treatment rooms, including a couples' massage room, it is a space in which guests can rejuvenate with a selection of massages, facials and beauty services. The new gym will be relocated in a nearby area.”

As part of the larger work on the hotel, the outdoor pool area is being refreshed and the restaurant is being rejuvenated. The hotel bar will also be re-orientated, in order for guests to enjoy Barbados’ iconic west coast sunsets.

With seven freehold hotels and resorts in Barbados, Elegant Hotels is the largest operator – by room number – in the Barbados luxury hotel market.
