In August 2011, Ribby Hall Village became home to one of Lancashire’s first SPA destinations with 42 beautifully appointed bedrooms, 14 treatment rooms, one of the UK’s largest aqua thermal journeys, a brasserie, champagne bar, and a state-of-the-art gym. The SPA Hotel has gone from strength to strength earning multiple awards and accolades, such as the best DAY SPA for two consecutive years and maintaining a five-bubble rating since year one from the Good SPA Guide; four-star silver status from the AA, and regional Professional Beauty Award winners to name a few!

In recent months, The SPA Hotel has safety re-opened and is currently enjoying its busiest ever summer season. Historically, the Summer season is one of The Village’s busiest times and this June – August 2021 period for The SPA Hotel specifically, has seen an increase in spa break bookings by 24% on 2019. Forward bookings for the next four months are also currently up by 57% for the same time in 2019.

The SPA Hotel is currently looking to recruit new talent for 11 positions comprising: Spa Therapists, Apprentice Spa Therapists, Orangery Team Members, Apprentice Chef, Commis Chef, and Pastry Chef. Full details can be found at and Ribby’s HR team would welcome the opportunity to speak to anyone wanting to find out more information.

Since opening The SPA Hotel in 2011 (see infographic below) The SPA Hotel at Ribby Hall Village has continually evolved its offering, reinvesting profits to enhance the customer experience. This has included enhancing its treatment and wellness offering and expanding the choice of both its SPA facilities and food and beverage options – including for example, The Orangery – a two AA rosette dining experience; the Lounge Bar and Zen Bar.

Most recently, The SPA Hotel’s iconic Aqua Thermal Journey was extended (March 2020), just a few days prior to lockdown one, whereby a new Reflexology Walkway, some ultra-soothing infra-red bench seating were amongst the highlights taking it to a new level of customer comfort. Foot Spas were situated within the Zen Garden in their own restful booth with stylish mosaic style tiling. Elsewhere, an outdoor pagoda was added to enhance guests’ experience in all weathers.  Heated robe houses have also been added to the Zen Garden to keep guests’ robes warm and toasty whilst they relax in the outdoor hot tubs and saunas. 

Over the years, such enhancements, often in line with customer feedback are made during the SPA’s annual, week-long shutdown in early March, when essential maintenance takes place and new facilities are installed to enhance the customer experience.
