The Aquarias Spa at Whatley Manor Hotel near Malmesbury in Wiltshire has announced a new partnership with Sothys.

The spa will be offering a collection of premium rituals including a new signature treatment, the Seasonal Garden spa experience.

“Working with Sothys as our new wellness partner will further position Aquarias Spa as a place for guests to restore their natural balance in 2023,” said Sue Williams, general manager at Whatley Manor.

“In Sothys we have found a luxurious spa brand who are constantly working to reduce their negative impact on the planet, a value strongly shared with us at Whatley.”

Facilities at Aquarias Spa include a thermal suite, an indoor-outdoor hydrotherapy pool, heated stone recliners and salt scrub showers.

The new Sothys treatments on offer will include the Premium Secrets Facial – an eight-step ritual billed as able to reverse the signs of ageing by four and a half years in a single treatment – and the Hydra Hyaluronic Acid 4 Facial.

An absolute hydration solution, the latter offers six steps to quench, hydrate and plump the skin, with two patented Sothys actives and four sources of hyaluronic acid.

“We're looking forward to harnessing the natural parallels immersed in the Les Jardins Sothys with our own gardens, including the Kitchen Garden. We expect to see these influences incorporated into treatments and our spa lounge menu.”

Hanakasumi is a unique treatment of Japanese inspiration, involves peeling with exfoliating gloves, a full body massage and a specific foot massage.

Lastly, Sensations Orientales is inspired by ancestral Oriental rites with aromatic notes of myrrh and amber. The treatment a uses an enzymatic gel to prepare the body for exfoliation, followed by an exclusive Sothys massage with a polishing terracotta stone, which guests take home at the end of the treatment.
