Ragdale Hall Spa, Leicestershire opens a breath-taking rooftop infinity pool.
The much-anticipated new addition to Ragdale Hall Spa’s extensive spa facilities, the Rooftop Infinity Pool, was opened on Wednesday 20th December 2017. Ragdale Hall’s co-owner, Michael Isaacs, was joined by regular Ragdale guest Judy Court to cut the ribbon and declare the new Pool and Lounge officially open.
The Pool is Ragdale’s sixth pool, and offers guests an open air, heated rooftop pool experience, complete with breath-taking views over the grounds and rolling Leicestershire countryside in the distance.
The new pool is complemented by a top floor Lounge and, downstairs, a completely redesigned Exercise Pool area featuring bespoke LED mood lighting, designed in part by the team behind the light show at the Rio Olympics’ opening ceremony.
Michael Isaacs said: “This is a momentous day as it has been a challenging project, but we really do feel we have a unique feature here, taking full advantage of the amazing view. We hope all our guests will enjoy it.”
The Rooftop Infinity Pool reflects the sky and envelop the new structure features reclining underwater massage jet seating, coloured underwater lighting, an infinity edge, and is heated to 35 degrees. pool. To the rear of the pool the slightly elevated Rooftop Lounge offers views of the pool and the countryside beyond through the high windows.
On the ground floor the original Exercise Pool area has been transformed and a series of ten tailor-made LED concentric rings around the pool offer adjustable lighting to bring the sense of an awakening sunrise and relaxing sunset into the pool area.
