Tranquil Spa has a high-end look and finish throughout, with three individual shower rooms, six individual changing rooms, two unisex toilets and a DDA accessible shower room and toilet, as well as circulation space with lockers, vanity units and grooming shelves, making the entire area completely unisex. Three treatment rooms, one with an inclusive shower, offer a full range of beauty treatments. The facility also has two nail bars.
Tranquil Spa is housed within a new 540 sq. m extension to the side of the leisure centre, with its own dedicated reception and waiting area. The spa includes the UK’s first Watermill Sauna, a Herbal Sauna, Salt Inhalation room, Aroma Steam room, Health Shower and Ice Chute as well as a large relaxation area. Previously the leisure centre only offered two simple saunas on the first floor next to its gym
The new extension also houses a Fitness Factory, compete with power assisted ShapeMaster equipment, offering customers the general benefits of a regular exercise programme covering all of the major muscle groups as part of a circuit. These facilities will appeal to all ages, including people with disabilities, mobility and stability issues, as well as those recovering from an injury or simply wanting to lose weight. There is also a referral room for assessments and follow up appointments.
Mark Walters, Senior Construction Project Manager at Createability, who oversaw the entire redevelopment said: “The specification and level of finish is extremely high end and not what you typically expect to see when you walk into a council-run leisure centre. This has been replicated throughout the entire redevelopment, which also includes a Les Mills immersive cycling experience, the Trip™; Europe’s first outdoor Flight Tower; an 80-station gym largely equipped by principle supplier, Precor; an adventure play area; XHeight climbing wall and a barista-style café.”
Simon Kirby, Sports and Leisure Manager at Lancaster City Council, says: “Our aim has been to create an inspirational destination so members of our community and from across the region can come and enjoy a wide range of new and innovative physical activities…”
