If it’s been a while since your last spa break then you might want to clear your schedule this June as that’s when a brand new €1.2 million spa is set to open just 40 minutes drives from Dublin City.
The Osprey Hotel in Naas, Co. Kildare, is set to unveil its brand new €1.2 million spa in early June.
Celebrity architect and star of RTE’s Home of the Year, Hugh Wallace of Douglas Wallace Architects, is behind the design of the urban sanctuary, which he created using natural materials and textures in order to bring elements of nature inside.
The expansive spa stretches over 10,000 sq ft andset over three floors with the thermal suite offering a range of heating experiences including a dry floatation bed, double and single seaweed baths, Rasul Chamber, heated, mosaic, free standing stone loungers and a Salt Grotto.
The second floor hosts six treatment rooms while the couple’s suite on the third floor is complete with a swing – think of the Instagram opportunities…
There will also be a retail area which will sell personal skincare products and a dedicated grooming area will offer nail care, pedicures and general beauty maintenance services including waxing and tinting – so you can get all your bits done while you’re there.
In keeping with the natural theme throughout the spa, the Irish seaweed based product, VOYA is the product of choice for the spa.
Speaking in advance of the spa opening, Osprey Spa manager, Blanaidh Bailey said: “seaweed naturally absorbs the nourishment from the sea and as a result seaweed contains countless minerals, vitamins and beneficial ingredients in high concentrations.”
One of the signature treatments is the ‘Osprey Revive & Harmonise’ (90 minutes from €120), which includes with a peppermint foot soak, a dry body brush and a signature body massage. Guests will also enjoy a VOYA express facial and hot oil scalp massage. The treatment concludes with a deep soak in a detoxifying seaweed bath.
This Osprey Spa is just another gem in the crown of the newly remodelled Osprey Hotel, which last year opened the Herald & Devoy Restaurant and new lobby area.
Plans are already in place to boost the capacity of the hotel by another 23 bedrooms, and work is due to begin on that project before the end of this year.
