The Project Brief
The owners contacted us at a time when they had already pre-formed layouts. Despite a relatively late call we were able to pick up the project mid-term, refine layouts and design, and improve practical operational issues ensuring the fundamentals worked commercially and the guest’s experience was maximized within the philosophy of Feversham. Our services continued to provide pre-opening set-up and staff training, followed by operational assessment visits.
The style of the Verbena Spa is soft, relaxing and homely using natural products, with strong natural colours and textures. Plenty of seating, book reading areas and places to sit and unwind with the family or friends.The Spa goes from strength to strength winning the UK’s top accolades.
I have awarded Verbena Spa our top bubble rating of 5 bubbles. Everything about this spa deserves recognition. The environment has been perfectly designed with special attention to detail. Service and treatments are outstanding, delivered by professional friendly staff. And the outdoor hot tub and pool are the icing on the cake.
