Malaysian hotel group YTL Hotels has now opened the floating spa at Monkey Island Estate resort in Bray-on-Thames, UK. The spa is located on a bespoke crafted barge moored on the banks of the island and houses three treatment rooms, a themed wheelhouse reception and an elixir bar.
Inspired by the monks who once inhabited the island, the treatments and spa experiences have been choreographed to fit the setting and concept. Each spa treatment will begin with a sensory ritual and tasting of one of the monk-brewed ancient herbal tonics.
The spa is also peppered with touch points that celebrate the power of water, taking guests on holistic voyages through the history of the island and the river Thames. The spa team has partnered with British spa brand Moss of the Isles to create the bespoke treatments.
Monkey Island Estate is the latest addition to YTL Hotels’ growing UK portfolio, a collection of hotels which already includes The Gainsborough Bath Spa, Threadneedles, The Glasshouse and The Academy.
