The Health Club & Spa at St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort in Guernsey, has scooped the award for Best Spa in the Channel Islands for the second year in a row at the Good Spa Guide Awards.
Relaunched last summer following a £2.5m investment, the Health Club & Spa at St Pierre Park - owned and operated by country house hotel and spa resort group, Hand Picked Hotels - offers the most comprehensive fitness and wellness resort facilities in Guernsey, providing a range of signature relaxation, restorative and beauty treatments from expert therapists using award-winning ELEMIS products. The spa has five sumptuous treatment rooms, a relaxation room which overlooks the resort’s expansive gardens, as well as a marble steam room, dual aspect volcanic stone sauna, hot and cold rainfall and monsoon ‘experience’ showers, a 16.5m indoor swimming pool and an extensive outdoor terrace with spa pool.
Hand Picked Hotels’ two other Channel Island hotels, L’Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa in St Brelades Bay, Jersey, and Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa in St Helier, were also shortlisted in the same category.
The Good Spa Awards, launched by the Good Spa Guide back in 2010, are designed to recognise the best spas in Britain as nominated by their readers and an expert panel of ‘spa spies.’ Judges, rating over 100 nominees across all categories, award rising standards of quality and service in an industry which has seen exponential growth.
St Pierre Park was once again awarded the best Spa in the Channel Islands for its creative use of space, outstanding facilities, range of treatments and customer service. The award was presented at a gala dinner hosted by comedy actress Helen Lederer as part of the annual Spa Life conference on 14 November.
A Spa Spy from the Good Spa Guide, said of the Spa at St Pierre Park, "We love the way the design brings the outdoors in at every opportunity. Expect good quality treatments, lovely relaxation spaces, lots of great ways to get active if you choose, delicious food and old-fashioned customer service."
Lesley Bacon, Group Health Club & Spa Manager at Hand Picked Hotels, added: “I am thrilled for the spa team and all at St Pierre Park who have worked tirelessly since re-launch to offer a truly premium spa experience for our loyal spa members and hotel guests. The Good Spa Award nominations are completely anonymous and the competition is always very strong, so this is a fantastic achievement in recognition of the high standards of service and quality we work hard to maintain and I congratulate all those nominated.”
Alongside the Spa at St Pierre Park, the resort’s health club features an extensive gymnasium with the latest fitness and functional training equipment, plus a separate fitness zone for resistance and free weights training. For outdoor fitness enthusiasts, St Pierre Park also has a 9 hole golf course designed by Tony Jacklin CBE, and a new a-state-of-the-art two level driving range, adventure golf and a fully stocked pro shop.
