About Champneys

Established in Britain over 90 years ago, Champneys are a health and wellbeing spa resort with more than 13 sites in the UK. Their mantra is that wellness is a way of life.

They are driven by the simple belief that lasting beauty is more than just skin deep. That’s why Champneys offer a retreat that aims to achieve health and happiness through expert knowledge, fitness services, spa treatments and great cuisine.

The company started out as the extraordinary vision of an eccentric Latvia massage pioneer called Stanley Lief and are now seen as the ‘go-to’ spa.

The company’s values are built on credibility, the importance of wellbeing, sensory experiences and expert staff.

Champneys aim to be a world-class aspirational brand, embracing all areas of wellbeing through their health resorts, day spas and spa products.
