Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall

Set close to Plymouth’s coastline and within a historic eight-acre estate, Boringdon Hall’s Gaia Spa is the ultimate escape and an opportunity for guests to revitalise and relax.

For the Nettleton group, Gaia Spa is the result of a £6m investment and five years of intense planning. With the help of Ellisons dedicated Spa Partner team, this indulgent wellness spa was brought to life and now welcomes a host of guests from all over the world.


Complete with 12 treatment rooms, Finnish sauna, crystal salt room and a deep relaxation room, Gaia Spa, named after the Greek goddess of Mother Nature, offers a range of wellness treatments for its clients, as well as promoting the opportunity to take in the beautiful nature surrounding them. “There is a new desire in society for a place in which to recharge in natural surroundings,” owner and Spa Director Dianne Nettleton told European Spa magazine. “We wanted the spa to be a physical and psychological experience for clients. How it looks is important but how it makes you feel is the most essential thing about the spa.”


With this in mind, the Hotel and Leisure team at Ellisons set out to provide advice on quality products to assist the Nettleton group in offering a high quality service to their spa guests. From furniture to treatment advice, our knowledgeable team was able to provide brand demonstrations and recommendations to the Nettleton group to ensure they were fully informed and able to make the best decisions in relation to their end goal.

Set within the estate of the Grade I listed building Boringdon Hall, Gaia Spa required sensitive planning and a large amount of pre-consultation work to ensure the development ran as smoothly as possible.
