Regular jet bath or healing waters? This is the reality when booking a room at the new Gainsborough Bath Spa in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath. The 99-room hotel, which opened last month, is the first and only hotel in the United Kingdom to offer guests in-room access to the spa-town's thermal waters - available in the Gainsborough Suite and two additional spa rooms. All rooms feature Georgian accents, while 17,000 ancient coins uncovered during early site excavations are on display in reception. Naturally, guests will also have access to the hotel's adjoining Spa Village, comprising relaxation rooms, ice alcove, steam room, sauna, three thermal pools and an Aroma Bar where guests can custom-blend their own oils. Nightly room-only rates start from $700.
