Cheshire’s award-winning, privately owned Carden Park Hotel continues to commit to its ambitious growth strategy with the opening of a new luxurious lounge space. Situated opposite fine dining restaurant, The Vines which launched earlier this year, the new lounge has opened its doors this month and is the perfect space for guests to relax pre and post dinner at the hotel.
The new £1.5 million lounge, which has capacity for 130 including the veranda, takes inspiration from the hotel’s dining spaces and award-winning spa, acting as an interim between the two. Open to both hotel residents and day visitors, the new lounge is the perfect place for guests to continue enjoying the slow pace of their rejuvenating spa day or play on the championship golf courses, before gently coming back to their surroundings with a refreshing pre-dinner drink or light lunch. With creative cocktails and delicious afternoon tea also on the menu, the tranquil space has been designed to keep guests calm and relaxed whilst also still feeling luxurious and glamourous.
Completed with hand-painted, golden coffers on the ceiling and large Crittall style windows, the space has a bright and open atmosphere. Meanwhile, the oversized doors, which lead onto the canopy covered veranda, blend the outside world with the inside, allowing guests to soak up the natural healing elements of nature too.
Jason West, director of WDC Creative, the Manchester based studio responsible for the design of the lounge, comments: “We were so pleased to work with Carden Park on the design of their new luxurious lounge. We decided a modern-classic style would be most suited to the other areas of their hotel & spa and the features we chose for this reimagined area have each been carefully selected to create a space that feels inspired yet refined. Ensuring that high-quality, British-made items were used where possible, key focal points of the lounge include the beautiful Wilton Carpet and the bespoke organic lighting feature, providing timeless elegance to the beautiful space.”
