Thames Lido spa prepares for October opening
POSTED 29 Aug 2017 . BY Tom Walker
The team behind The Lido in Bristol, UK, is preparing to launch its second spa and outdoor pool site in Reading, Berkshire.

The Thames Lido, on the site of the King's Meadow Swimming Baths, will include a 25m (82ft), outdoor heated pool, two poolside saunas, an outdoor hot tub, a plunge shower and “water bucket”.

The Spa at Thames Lido will house eight treatment rooms – two of which will be dedicated solely to deep tissue massages. There is also a post spa treatment relaxation area, called Octagon.

According to Mark Thwaites, operations director at Thames Lido, the treatment menu will consist of bespoke products already used at the Bristol Lido.

“We use our own Lido Spa products for all our treatments, as well as providing Lido Spa shower and shampoo products in each shower room,” he said.

“We have been working with Arcania Apothecary for the past seven years and have produced our own range for both professional and retail use.

“All our treatments are 60 minutes long so that you get a full hour’s massage without feeling hurried as the therapists have a 15 minute turnaround time before the next treatment.”

The Thames Lido and spa will be built and operated by the same group of entrepreneurs and companies responsible for the rejuvenation of the Bristol Lido – architects Marshall and Kendon, Arne Ringner (managing director), Freddy Bird (food and drink) and Thwaites (spa).
