The ‘Ridgeview Beauty Bar’ has launched as part of a brand new £15 million spa by Exclusive Hotels at South Lodge. This exciting launch cements the partnerships of both family businesses, where Ridgeview is the exclusive English Sparkling Wine at all Exclusive Hotels and Venues.
Guests of the new spa will be able to receive beauty treatments in the most elegant of settings whilst enjoying a glass of Ridgeview sparkling wine. The Ridgeview Beauty Bar, a play on the double meaning of the word ‘bar’, is situated alongside the spa’s new Botanica Restaurant, which overlooks the swim pond. With a focus on health and plant-based plates, the restaurant focuses on the South Downs as a larder for its Mediterranean inspired menu.
The amazing new Sussex destination spa draws inspiration from the South Downs with an eco-grass roof in the sloping shape of the downs. The building situated near Horsham was designed by architects Felce and Guy with sustainability in mind and includes the UK’s first heated natural swim pond. Guests can be transported from the hotel via stretched electric tuk-tuks. In another first, the ‘Ridgeview Beauty Bar’ designed by interior spa specialists SPARC, houses the UK’s only sparkling wine Enoflute dispenser to perfectly serve Ridgeview bubbles.
At the launch party, which included an outdoor laser show, edible dessert tree and breath-taking performances, the Managing Director of Exclusive Hotels and Venues, Danny Pecorelli remarked in his welcome speech: “Working with Ridgeview is the true definition of a partnership.” Tamara Roberts, CEO of Ridgeview commented; “We are thrilled for Ridgeview to be represented in such a unique way. It’s great working with the whole Exclusive team with their vision and passion. The beautiful spa is sure to become a major Sussex destination”
