Regular visitors to the Turkish Baths will see the improvements from the moment they set foot in the newly decorated reception area. The Turkish Baths changing rooms have been improved with the laying of new wooden parquet flooring which complements the velvet curtained wooden cubicles.
Whilst the Baths have retained their Moorish design, a new steam room featuring atmospheric mood lighting has been installed to enhance the relaxing and revitalising experience.
The Health Spa has undergone extensive refurbishment and decoration including a new grey and purple colour scheme, better lighting, new carpeting, new furniture in the treatment rooms and new walnut cabinets in the changing rooms.
In addition to the cosmetic improvements, the Turkish Baths has also expanded its timetable re-introducing a gentlemen-only evening session on Wednesdays starting on 7 September 2016.
Sarah Leachman, Assistant Manager at the Turkish Baths said:
We offer a magical experience, blending the 19th century glamour of the Turkish Baths with the modern and contemporary Health Spa. It’s important that customers feel relaxed while they are experiencing a treatment and their surroundings certainly influence this. We take great pride in providing the best possible experience for our customers, and our refurbishment will allow us to further improve on the award winning service which we offer.
Councillor Stanley Lumley, Harrogate Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Sport said:
Harrogate’s Turkish Baths is a truly special place. For centuries, visitors have flocked to the spa town of Harrogate to unwind, relax and rejuvenate and the Turkish Baths have played been an important role in this. We are always looking at how we can improve on the first class service we offer, and this refurbishment will make a visit to the Turkish Baths and Health Spa an even more memorable occasion.
The re-introduction of gentlemen-only sessions also adds another string to our bow, providing something which many other spas don’t offer. We hope that these sessions will prove popular.
