Dorsett Hospitality to open first European hotel and spa this May
Dorsett Hospitality International is to open its first hotel in Europe, inclusive of a progressive spa and wellness centre, following the announcement of its new four-star Dorsett Shepherds Bush property, which is to be introduced in May 2014.
The spa at Dorsett Shepherds Bush will be home to four treatment rooms offering non-invasive, results driven face and body treatments, which will be open to both guests and local residents.
The centre is to draw influence from the benefits of holistic, Chinese treatments, which seek to relax and revive spa users. The spa is also set to feature two nail stations offering a variety of hand treatments, with therapist services being offered to users.
A steam room and sauna are planned for the facility, as well as a specialist infrared sauna, which is thought to help treat sprains, strains and arthritis, while also seeking to aid pain management.
The sauna uses infrared heaters to emit light experienced as radiant heat, which is absorbed by the surface of the skin, as opposed to the method of conduction and convection from heated air used in traditional saunas.
For those looking to exercise during their stay, access to the hotel?s gym is available on a 24-hour basis through the use of a swipe card.
The hotel itself is set within a Grade II listed building, originally known as The Shepherds Bush Pavilion, which was formerly a cinema built in 1923.
Under its landmark glass roof, the seven-storey hotel will offer 317 Chinese-inspired bedrooms, including 187 standard Dorsett rooms and 24 suites. Dorsett?s own in-house design team will work on the interior, with a focus on producing a hotel with a comfortable, contemporary setting for guests.
