It’s owned by YTL a Malaysian-based group who have a whole collection of luxury ‘spa resorts’ around the world.

They also manage Bath’s Thermae Spa and own Wessex Water.

This new five-star hotel offers its own supply of natural thermal water and has a display of some of the silver coins that made up the Beau Street Hoard.

It’s the fifth largest hoard ever found in Britain and the largest ever discovered in a British Roman town.

The first handful from the hoard which is now known to contain 17,500 coins.

They were discovered on the site of the hotel’s new pool.

The 17,577 coins span the period from 32BC to 274AD and were found in eight separate money bags which were fused together.

The hoard now belongs to Bath and many coins are on display at the Roman Baths Museum.

  1. Hello Richard,

    Are you invited to the posh dinner ?

    See if you can get a list of the “A-Listers” who are there… networking for Britain (or rather for themselves)…. !

    Regards,
