About

With its rolling hills, fertile soils and historic cities, there’s nowhere better for a stress-busting spa break than Kent. And, tucked away in one of the Garden of England’s prettiest corners sits Rowhill Grange Hotel. This award-winning country house spa hotel is just a 30-minute train ride from London. But with a tranquil feel, luxury dining and an incredible Roman-esque spa to savour, you’ll feel far away from the hustle and bustle here. 

Once the summer home of the Alexander family, Rowhill Grange can trace its history back to 1868. Lovingly renovated, the hotel has lost none of its Victorian charm, with 38 boutique bedrooms named after flowers, as well as 15 acres of lush grounds, a 19th-century walled garden and traditional clapboard exteriors.

But the biggest draw? Rowhill Grange’s impressive Utopia Spa. With a dramatic two-floor swimming area decked out in marble to resemble candlelit Roman baths, it’s one of Kent's finest. The perfect way to indulge your inner Greek god or goddess, you’ll also find 19 sumptuous treatment rooms plus saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and expertly administered therapies from British brands such as Temple Spa and OSKIA of London.

If you can bear to leave you’ll find superb retail therapy at Bluewater Shopping Centre just a short drive away, and Leeds, Hever and Chiddingstone Castles all on the hotel’s doorstep. Plus, if you’re a keen petrolhead, make sure you pay a visit to the world-renowned Brands Hatch race circuit.

Kent is fabulous for foodies, with its natural bounty providing fresh seafood, salt-marsh lamb, plump vegetables and soft fruit. Just don’t spoil your appetite. Back at the hotel some delicious options await you in Elements bar or at RG’s, Rowhill Grange’s two AA-Rosette winning restaurant.

The Spa & Wellness at Rowhill Grange Hotel & Utopia Spa

Welcome to Utopia, where a wellness journey awaits you. This is a spa destination like no other, so step into subterranean pools, warm yourself in thermal suites as you pause, exhale, and let go. 

Surrender to this Roman-inspired spa with its two floors of luxury spa facilities. Take a dip in the full length swimming pool with its columns and alcoves, or relax in the enormous hydrotherapy pool, bubble tub and sauna. You’ll find steam rooms and monsoon showers in the changing suites.

Feel grounded with a range of bio-nutritional therapies from OSKIA of London and deeply aromatic treatments from Temple Spa, alongside unique Utopia rituals. 

The bespoke facials here also provide an extra glow and anti-aging effect which is deeply cleansing. All signature facials use OSKIA’s scientifically developed products, whilst the CACI or Dermalux electrical and light treatments provide instant lifting and smoothing results.

Then, after your treatment, pad along to the relaxation lounge. Listen to ambient music while you lay back on a chaise longue covered with a cosy tweed mill blanket. Heaven.

The Gym & Fitness at Rowhill Grange Hotel & Utopia Spa

Fitness fan? Step right this way. Whatever type of workout you fancy, from something gentle to something a bit more invigorating, you can find it right here. The fully-equipped gym offers a great range of machines and exercise stations, so you can do as much or as little as you want.

There are treadmills, bikes and cross trainers, along with free weights and weights machines, so you never have to miss a leg day. When you feel you've earned a rest, visit the steam room or sauna to recover in style.

Prefer to exercise in the fresh air? Bring your hiking boots and go for a walk. Kent is a glorious county for long hikes in the great outdoors, but just a 20-minute drive takes you to Trosley Country Park with three way-marked trails providing spectacular views over the Downs. 

Restaurants & Food at Rowhill Grange Hotel & Utopia Spa

If all that pampering has worked up an appetite, you’ll be pleased to know that dining at Rowhill Grange is a sumptuous affair.

There are two options on offer, but how do you choose between them? RG’s Restaurant is the hotel’s two- AA Rosette-award winning restaurant and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you were heading to RG’s for dinner, just remember there’s a smartly elegant dress code so pack something fancy. Elements bar and lounge is more relaxed, and is open for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

RG’s Restaurant

RG’s Restaurant offers sumptuous dining amid elegant surroundings. During the day you can expect a light, airy space and by night you will be cocooned in an intimate atmosphere surrounded by candlelight and the scent of delicious food cooking in the air.

The dishes at this restaurant are made with locally sourced ingredients and the menus alternate with the seasons. Sublime steaks are cooked to perfection while succulent slow-cooked lamb is a real treat. There is also a specific vegan menu where you will find roasted cauliflower and a vegan cheesecake that wins rave reviews.

If your spa day falls on a Sunday then head to this restaurant at 12pm sharp and tuck into their traditional Sunday lunch with gorgeous traditional English desserts including fig and ginger pudding and a Granny Smith apple compote.

Elements Bar and Lounge

Chilled-out Elements has a chic, country-club vibe, made even better because you’re welcome to eat in robe here up until 6.30pm. Feel energised by their superfood salads or if the weather is a bit colder (or you just want to treat yourself) sit by the warming fire and satisfy your hunger with a ‘naughty’ burger.

Good atmosphere, great service. Amazing massage with quality oils. Therapist applied a decent amount of pressure to my requests. Enjoyed thermal pool, Jacuzzi and steam room. Visited mid-week and it wasn’t too busy. Female only sauna was a little small. The lockers are fiddly to open, be careful of your nails! The only thing that let the day down was the 2 course lunch. Not a huge amount of options provided on the spa day set menu. Our selection was mistakenly served cold. Staff were keen to rectify the situation to my satisfaction.

We had booked a one night stay renew and refresh package through SpaSeekers. Once booked we needed to enquire about my wife being pregnant and finding a treatment to suit her needs. We contacted the spa directly and staff were so friendly and helpful and booked exactly what we needed. On arrival at the hotel the reception staff are welcoming and very helpful at showing you to your room. We was giving a complementary upgrade to a luxury room. The spa was absolutely amazing the facility is clean and tidy. All of the spa equipment is in working order and very new & easy to use, Both me and my wife would like to thank our therapists we had for the day they were amazing. Dinner was part of our package and it was very good. Breakfast was also included in this package which was also very nice. We both absolutely loved this spa experience and would return to Rowhill Grange. We would also rebook through SpaSeekers with your amazing offers and easy to navigate website.

Arrived and was offered tea and coffee and brownies, given full details for the day spa timings and off we went to spa. All pools were lovely and warm and the whole atmosphere was calm and inviting and clean. Treatments were on time and were great. Staff were always there for questions if needed. High tea was really nice and we are vegetarian and no problem for them to accommodate. I purchased products as so so nice. The whole day was relaxing and will definitely return. Thank you Nicola
