Bath wasn’t built in a day!
You can’t hear the word Bath and not think spa, right? As early as Celtic civilisation in Britain, people have been flocking to the city of Bath for some hydrothermal action. But with the original Roman Baths now only available for viewing and not pampering, where do you go for your share of the relaxation? That’s where The Spa at Homewood Park steps in. Set in stunning award-winning grounds, Homewood boasts one of the best luxury spas in Bath.
Back in their Roman heyday, circa 60AD, the original baths had three pools to choose from: the caldarium (a hot bath), the tepidarium (a warm bath), and the frigidarium (a cold bath). Things have moved on a little since then and The Spa at Homewood includes a state of the art indoor hydrotherapy pool and a beautiful outdoor pool which is heated to a cosy 28°C all year round- no cold baths around here, thank you very much!
As well as taking inspiration from the baths themselves, modern spa treatments aren’t so far removed from their ancient ancestors. One of our most popular treatments at the spa at Homewood is the ‘Hot Stones Massage‘. Using heat in massage dates back well before the Romans to ancient Chinese civilisation and has been embraced as a great source of relaxation for many thousands of years.
We also off a range of treatments in conjunction with Elemis, the UK’s leading luxury spa skincare brand. Elemis utilises natural ingredients such as Red Coral, Lime and Ginger. Homewood likes to keep things basic with only the purest ingredients in our spa treatments, why not try one of our ‘Aroma Spa Ocean Wraps‘? These luxurious treatements incorporate marine algae for beautifully soft and pampered skin.
The Romans were pretty ahead of their time when it came to pampering themselves and strongly advocated the health benefits of a lifestyle filled with bathing, eating, massage and exercise, and the baths were open to people from all walks of life. Here at Homewood, we think the Romans had it right! As part of our ‘Midday Spa Treat’ offer, you can enjoy use our excellent spa facilities for up to 4 hours and indulge in a gorgeous two course lunch in Bath courtesy of our award-winning Head Chef, Simon Addison.
