Aqua Thermal Journey Revealed
Come with us on an amazing journey, where mind and body are treated to all kinds of unique and tantalising treatments, varying in temperature to detoxify, relax and revitalise.
Lockers, towels and flip flops are provided free of charge upon check-in and robes are available on request.
The Aqua Thermal Journey is designed to take you, step by step, through a range spa treatments, increasing in temperature gradually before ending with a refreshing and cleansing cold treatment. The alternation between increasingly hot and cold temperatures can stimulate and improve your circulation, relax aching muscles, cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, and boost your immune system, as well as feeling luxurious and invigorating.
The Aqua Thermal Journey is a two hour experience, and we recommend you arrive 10-15 minutes before your booked time. You can use the rooms in whatever order you like but see below for the order our Spa team recommend. Our Aqua Thermal Journey experience must be combined with lunch, dinner, afternoon tea in The Orangery. It can also be booked with a treatment or on its own in the evenings as a Twilight Aqua Thermal Experience which includes a glass of bubbly afterwards.
Also included in the cost of our Aqua Thermal Journey is access to the stunning outdoor Zen Garden with its own bar, relaxation areas, hot tub and sauna overlooking the beautiful Lancashire countryside.
NEW for 2018: We recently enhanced our popular Zen Garden with a new Himalayan Salt Sauna, an additional hot tub and new outdoor experience shower with mood lighting and body jets!

The Rasul Mud Chamber
A unique experience, perfect to share with a partner or friends. Our Rasul mud is gently harvested from the glaciers of the Austrian Alps. It is 100% natural and derives from pure nature without the use of any additives or artificial ingredients. These detoxifying muds have been used for decades as part of a cleansing ritual combining steam and heat to draw out impurities and remove dead skin cells.
After showering and exfoliating with salt, apply the mud to different parts of the body and leave to penetrate for 15-20 minutes to allow the mud to do its magic. Next shower yourself down in warm water to remove the mud and dry. Continue to feel the benefits at home with a refreshing seasonal body lotion to take away with you.

Start your Aqua Thermal Journey in the Aromatherapy Room. The first step in the journey is imbued with delicate and delightful aromatherapy scents. The essential oils used will relax and energise, as well as boosting your general wellbeing. Set to 38 degrees, this is the perfect start to the journey and we recommend 10 minutes to allow your body to become acclimatised to heat experiences to follow.
The second room introduces the humidity and heat of a steam room experience combined with the benefits of essential oil aromatherapy. A steam room can have highly beneficial effect on your skin and your respiratory system on top of the relaxation and wellbeing of the aromatherapy experience. The humid steam is a great relief for sinusitis too, opening airways and lowering congestion. After enjoy a monsoon shower or brave a cold shower to boost circulation and skin tightening.
The third experience is a humid sauna set to 65 degrees. The light changing affects your mood and promotes a feeling of wellbeing. Relax in here for 10 minutes before enjoying a cool shower before the next part of the journey.
Relax on the heated benches and allow your feet to be cleansed by the foot spas as they did in the Roman times and was often incorporated into their public bath houses. The foot spas stimulate the reflexology points in the feet to promote total body wellness.
The fifth experience along the journey. At 49 degrees, the Balinese Salt Inhalation Room is the hottest steam room with salt infused into the vapour which encourages detoxification and cleansing the skin and lungs. The blue coloured chamber slows down the body's processes reducing levels of anxiety. Enjoy a bucket rope experience shower after this!
This sixth and hottest heat experience, the heat of the Herbal Sauna allows maximum elimination of toxins from the body and further relaxes your muscles and improves circulation. Enjoy a cold shower and then rub handfuls of ice over your body to invigorate.
Enjoy the true and unrivalled relaxation of a sauna in the traditional Finnish way. The contrast of inside and outside temperatures is excellent for the body in terms of general health and promoting skin toning.
Central to the Aqua Thermal Journey is the Hydrotherapy Pool. Relax in the delightfully warm pool with water jets and bubbles designed to relieve muscle tension, ease aches and pains and improve wellbeing. Relax in here at your leisure.
Brace yourself for the plunge bucket. We recommend not thinking too hard about the temperature and instead just gritting your teeth and doing it. You'll find it refreshing and stimulating. Now for the Zen Garden...
The Tepidarium is a Roman concept where temperatures are kept to a pleasantly warm level, perfectly chosen to promote relaxation and peacefulness. The Spa Hotel Tepidarium is equipped with ergonomic recliners to ensure your comfort as you lounge in luxury.
Enjoy the fresh air, peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Zen Garden - included in the price of the Aqua Thermal Journey. Relax in the outdoor hot tub or one of the many loungers overlooking the beautiful countryside. Join us for a refreshing drink in Zen Garden Bar from 11am - 7pm.
