The Gainsborough Bath Spa

Opening Spring 2014, The Gainsborough Bath Spa exclusively offers the only natural thermal spa within a hotel in the United Kingdom.


Keystone to the geographic heart of Bath, the hotel is a moment’s stroll from Bath Abbey.

The high street shopping on Milsom Street, The Roman Baths and is the best location from which to explore the city and its other pre-eminent attractions. The Gainsborough Bath Spa is a contemporary expression of this vibrant, creative and artistic city, adding to its social spaces, and welcoming all.

Behind the Georgian, Grade II listed façade are ensconced a series of intimate, elegantly laid out public spaces which follow the original layout of the Pinch design. These include our ballrooms, the Restaurant and The Lobby Lounge. All 99 guestrooms and suites are custom furnished, subtly combining fine period details with graceful interiors and modern functional elements.

Serving seasonal, locally sourced cuisine The Gainsborough Restaurant offers versatile dining arrangements within a setting of exposed wooden beams and quasi-private fireside tables, as the works of resident artists line the walls. Sip innovative cocktails or old standards at the jewel box Restaurant Bar connected to the Private Dining Room or venture into The Lobby Lounge designed to entice visitors and residents of Bath alike with its light lunches, afternoon teas, pre-dinner cocktails and after dinner drinks.

Healing waters are the city’s most celebrated asset and Spa Village Bath focuses on just that. Encompassing two levels, the 1,300 square metre spa, features an apothecary, natural thermal water pools, ice chamber, sauna, steam room, movement studio, Fitness Centre, 11 treatment rooms, and therapeutic treatments inspired by the local thermal waters.

Spa Village Bath

Tapping into the original Roman Bath springs, Spa Village Bath offers a contemporary perspective on the city’s thermal water heritage. Coupled with the historic use of aromatherapy in Great Britain, this spa gently supports the brand’s philosophy of honouring the healing traditions of the region. The Malaysian based spa chain also showcases select signature therapies from the other Spa Villages in its luxury collection.

The opulent Bath House experience enables guests to “take the waters” in luxury. Guests will begin their visit with a circuit that includes dipping in three natural thermal pools of varying temperatures, traditional and infrared saunas, steam room, an ice chamber and elegant relaxation areas.

Spa Village Bath integrates the treasured waters of Bath with private aquatic body therapies and classic treatments that focus on personalised aromatherapy, balancing the fine line between science and art.

The serene environment of the spa is bathed in natural light emanating from the four story glass atrium perched above the Bath House. Located over two levels, Spa Village Bath also features 11 treatment rooms which include a couple’s suite with private thermal waters, 2 “tatami” rooms designed especially for the award-winning Asian therapies, and a beauty salon. Guests can satisfy their daily workout needs in the 24 hour Fitness Centre.

Local members can enjoy the privacy of the members’ lounge while relaxing and savouring the effects of their experience.

Guests of The Gainsborough who desire a more immersive spa experience can stay in one of the two Spa Village spa guest rooms or the restorative Spa Suite. All three rooms are located directly above the spa for the ultimate ease of access and include baths that fill with the thermal waters.  or
