The great, the good and the beautifully inclined from the West and beyond gathered last night to celebrate the official opening of the L’Horizon’s brand new spa and extended health club.

Following a welcome speech by Martin Kelly, General Manager and speeches by Julia Hands, Chairman & CEO of Hand Picked Hotels and Senator Lyndon Farnham, States of Jersey, guests at the private celebration were invited to a tour of The Spa which underwent a £800,000 investment including the introduction of innovative equipment. The spa facilities feature six treatment rooms, a dedicated self-contained relaxation area, a sleep room with five ergonomic beds and two manicure and pedicure stations and outstanding changing and shower facilities. The hotel also boasts an indoor 15 metre heated swimming pool in addition to a spa pool and sauna & steam room. Exclusively L’Horizon is also featuring the newly launched Elemis BIOTEC Facials, a pioneering skincare treatment featuring seven facial options, including an anti-ageing and anti-blemish treatment, each combines a unique high-potency activator and specially designed Elemis Skin Lift Touch, softening and illumining the skin. The extension of the Health Club’s gym, also launching, is stocked with new equipment, including a My7 Power Plate – the first model of its kind on the island – and a new TRX suspension trainer, with beautiful views of the stunning St Brelade’s Bay. Chairman & CEO Julia Hands said, “Hand Picked Hotels is a collection of 21 quintessentially British country house hotels located throughout the UK, with three in the Channel Islands. We strive to ensure that the service and quality offered to our guests is first class, and that the hotels offer the signature Hand Picked experience whilst maintaining their individuality. The Spa at L’Horizon is an indulgent extension of the experience we provide for our guests”. We’ve long loved the “‘Horizon with its ‘always on holiday’ feel and the only pool and jacuzzi in Jersey that’s pretty much on the beach. Now we have even more reasons to like it… go and take a look!
