Estelle Manor's new Roman bathhouse spa invites guests to step back in time

A new 3,000sq m Roman-inspired spa has opened at luxury English countryside hotel and club Estelle Manor
Named Eynsham Baths, the Oxfordshire spa features 10 treatment rooms and neoclassical design elements inspired by Roman ruins
Industry consultant Greg Payne helped bring the intricate project to life
Programming is anchored by Indian, Tibetan and Chinese healing philosophies

English countryside hotel and club Estelle Manor has unveiled its new 3,000sq m Roman-inspired bathhouse and spa following an intricate five-year project.

Set on a 60-acre estate in England's verdant Oxfordshire county, Estelle Manor is a Grade II-listed landmark house, surrounded by over 3,000 acres of parkland.

The 108-room luxury Oxfordshire property opened in June 2023 and is the brainchild of Ennismore founder and co-CEO Sharan Pasricha, offering a countryside companion to the Maison Estelle private members’ club in Mayfair, London.

The property’s new 10-treatment-room spa, Eynsham Baths, is set among a centuries-old forest and is defined by neoclassical architecture. Complete with sculpted columns, pilasters, hand-shaped bricks and carved marble details, the spa’s design is inspired by the Roman villa ruins discovered close to the Estelle Manor estate.

At its core lies a grand mezzanine bathing hall, flooded with natural light, where guests can journey through a tepidarium, a caldarium, a frigidarium and Scottish plunge buckets.

Additional features include a hammam, a hay sauna and a botanical steamroom.

Guests can either experience the bathing circuit at their own pace or opt for one of Eynsham Baths' specially devised contrast bathing cycles. There are two to choose from: energise and invigorate or calm and de-stress.

Guided by industry consultant Greg Payne, the spa was envisioned as a space for both intimate and social wellness experiences, with Nick Jacobs leading as director of wellness and spa.

To complete the spa experience, guests can visit the tea lounge, a shower walk, a breathwork pool and a members-only open-air area. The latter includes a pool and cascading waterfall surrounded by natural wildflowers and woodland ferns.

Access to the spa, along with a guided thermal journey, is complimentary for Estelle members, while hotel guests and members’ guests can enjoy the experience for £95 (US$122, €112) per person.

Beyond spa and wellbeing, Estelle Manor’s facilities extend to include a 250sq m gym with cardio, strength and training equipment and a studio, as well as four restaurants, a workspace, a kids’ club and members’ only club spaces.

Programming

Spa guests are invited to embark on a journey of holistic wellbeing at Eynsham Baths with a comprehensive range of treatments inspired by ancient Indian, Tibetan and Chinese healing philosophies.

For those seeking modern enhancements, the spa also offers IV therapy, vitamin booster shots and microblading by Skin Design London.

Rituals can also be upgraded with CBD-infused massage oils, therapeutic mud or specialised patches.

Central to Eynsham Baths' therapeutic offering are its five proprietary botanical plant remedies, crafted over three years and inspired by the ‘wisdom of plants’.

These remedies serve as the foundation for a range of hand-blended products, including luxurious oils, balms, liniments, body scrubs, cleansing soaps and face oils.

Enriching the spa experience further is the expertise of Manos Dimoudis, a seasoned master with over two decades of experience in health and wellness across continents.
