We invite you to melt into a haven of tranquillity, a retreat in which to relax, unwind and begin the journey towards total wellbeing. The Bannatyne Spa Leicester in partnership with Elemis offers both men and women beauty therapies and spa rituals with uplifting outcomes.

Relax the mind, soothe the soul and lift the spirit.

Our team will help you escape, rejuvenate and harmonise body and soul, to cleanse you of everyday stresses and strains.

On entering our therapy rooms you will experience elements of warmth, candlelight, soothing music and delicate fragrances that conspire to create a sensual tranquillity. Our spa and beauty treatments will relax you and refresh your whole inner being. Both before and after your treatments you can chill out in our wonderful relaxation room.

Here at The Bannatyne Spa Leicester we can pamper you from head to toe, with our luxurious Elemis facials, massages and body treatments we will relax you. We can offer you the best hand and foot treatments with a wonderful range of manicures and pedicures from Leighton Denny. You can also achieve the perfect look for your hair in our Wella Professional Hair Salon.

For those of you with serious skin or body concerns, our team of experienced and professional therapists will be happy to advise and prescribe home care rituals for you.

We are in a great location for pamper days as we are in a city centre location with great bars and restaurants around us, as well as being a short stroll away from the recently built High Cross Shopping Centre, so that you can experience some retail as well as beauty therapy!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

If you are looking for a relaxing spa day break then I would definitely NOT recommend this place.
I booked the spa day for 3 people (Triple treats for 3 - site says total 40min treatments each plus use of spa facilities. Treatments should have been Elimis welcome touch facial 15 mins pp, Mini Swedish BNS 15 mins pp and scalp massage 10 min pp).

As I reached the spa I was told to wait in the relaxation room, 5 mins later a lady called Ewelina came in and in a very rude manner asked if we were here for our treatments and also asked me if my treatments were 15 mins long!

Firstly you should know the time length of the treatments you provide and rather than ask the customer you should be the one to explain to them the treatment times. Our treatment was obviously not 15 mins each, as no one in their right mind would pay £50 each for 15 mins.

Whilst I was double checking what I had booked Ewelina had taken one of us in and basically told her to pick 1 out of the 3 treatments (even though the site showed that EACH one of us would get 3 treatments).

By that time I had double checked my booking I spoke to another lady who was a lot more apologetic and explained that the booking which was made via the Bannatyne website was an error by their head office – the time slot they booked us in for was a total of 45mins for ALL 3 of us rather than 45 mins each. She agreed that the mistake was Bannatyne’s and not ours.

We were asked if we would like to go ahead with 15 mins each but I was not willing to pay the same (£50) for 1 15 min treatment.

Overall this totally messed up my weekend as I travelled from London with my 2 maid of honours to thank them for their help so far. I had booked a hotel for the night’s stay and planned the spa day according to the booking.

I lost out on not just the treatments but also the money I spent on booking hotel rooms and travelling up. If I knew they could not book properly I would have just booked else ware but this totally wasted my time and money and definitely a wasted trip to Leicester!

I would never go back to this place and would not recommend anyone to go there after such a bad experience.

Staff were disorganized. Paperwork was not dealt with promptly when we arrived and we were bothered about it after it was locked away in our lockers and dressed ready to treatments. One jacuzzi was quite dirty

I went for a 2 for 1 Bannatyne Pamper Spa Day and have awarded it 2 stars.

Changing areas not particularly clean or modern.
Therapist gave a good massage but talked throughout the treatment so it wasn't relaxing.
Booked as a 2 for 1 deal - even then it was not worth the money so wouldn't recommend.

We chose this spa because the location was equal distance for each of us to travel.
All my dealings with Bannatynes by phone and email were helpful and friendly althoughI did receive three different lots of contradictory information about the times of the treatments booked and had to follow this up.
Although the club is situated under a rather ugly NCP car park, first impressions on entering were good with a clean, well-maintained reception area. We were made to feel welcome and given a tour of the spa facilities. The changing rooms/showers/toilets were spotless and the fact that a notice announced the pending replacement of the flooring suggests that maintenance is done before things are too worn. At the time of our visit - a Friday - the pool/jacuzzi/saunas/steam rooms were not busy and we felt able to use them as much as we wished. Busier times could see them all a little crowded. Our treatments, (see above) were in very pleasant rooms and the therapists were good.
The fitness room we used is a good size and the fitness suite large and well equipped.
My only niggles would be that visits to other spas charging the same have included the use of towels and robes, lunch and drinks and provided more spa rooms. Obviously the inner city location impacts on space and cost.
All in all pleasant experience. I would consider using the spa facilities of other Bannatyne centres for the right price!

I'd never had a massage before and it was a lovely treat - just felt a bit out of place whilst the staff were chatting to each other constantly and there were a few pervy men that were using the gym -
