Director takes on hotel spa

Developments are taking place this spring at the award-winning Verbena Spa following the appointment of a new director.

The Spa, which is part of the Feversham Arms Hotel in Helmsley, has a new director after Alex Jones was appointed.

Ms Jones, who previously managed the Titanic Spa in Huddersfield where she headed up a team of 30 therapists and was business development consultant for skincare brand Dermalogica, will manage a team of 20 staff at the Verbena Spa.

In her role she is also tasked with continuing to grow the business by innovating new treatments, including the launch of a new range of Verbena Spa treatments this Spring, which includes a wider selection of pregnancy treatments.

To coincide with the new appointment a new Spa menu has also been launched designed by the hotel’s Food and Beverage director, Chris Staines.

The Verbena Spa at the Feversham Arms Hotel was launched in October 2008 after a £1.2 million investment.
