Your Destination Spa journey begins in our light and airy Spa Reception, collect your robe and slippers before enjoying our stunning Destination Spa Facilities. Each Thermal Suite has a multitude of benefits to provide the best Spa experience possible, so you will feel relaxed and revitalized.
In order to obtain the maximum benefits from your Destination Spa experience, we kindly request that you read our Spa Etiquette.
Aromatherapy Steam Room
Take a moment to relax in our Aromatherapy Steam Room. The steam assists in the opening of your airway, and is a well known aid in relieving congestion. It will also help to encourage perspiration, which in turn opens your pores and eliminates toxins from your skin. The steam will also relieve any pressure and aches and pains you have, leaving you feeling relaxed and ache free.
Himalayan Salt Sauna
The benefits of Salt Therapy are wide ranging. The negatively charged ions in salt improve both our physical and mental health. The Himalayan Salt Sauna helps reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, helping you to feel and breathe better. The heat also helps to improve circulation and relaxes your muscles, helping to soothe aches and pains.
Our Tepidarium offers a less intense experience, the room is designed to have lower heat and humidity, but still warm enough to raise your body temperature and increase blood flow, as well as relaxing your muscles. A Tepidarium is a great place to relax and unwind, leaving you feeling stress-free. As well as having physical benefits, the aesthetics and design of the room with its mosaic tiles and peaceful surroundings will leave you feeling relaxed and re-energised.
Outdoor Tyrolean Kilo Sauna
Our Outdoor Tyrolean Kilo Sauna is the perfect spot to unwind, come rain or shine. Set in the heart of our facilities looking out onto our Outdoor Heated Swimming Pool, the Sauna warms your body, relieves pain and helps your stress melt away. Saunas are known for their healing properties and evidence suggests they can help aid with migraines, insomnia and the release of endorphins leaving you feeling both physically and mentally improved.
Outdoor Hot Tub
Take a seat in our beautiful Outdoor Hot Tub, which can seat 24 people, and is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink and catch up with your friends. The Hot Tub can be enjoyed all year round, and is a great place to warm up and socialise, even in the Winter months! Hot Tubs are not only a great spot to relax with friends, they can also relieve stress, help soothe aches and pains and even help aid insomnia. The heat and buoyancy of the water, as well as the action of the jets can help your body heal and feel better. So why not get your friends together, enjoy a delicious cocktail, (or mocktail!) from our bar and sit back and relax in our gorgeous Hot Tub.
Outdoor Heated Swimming Pool
Get active with a dip in our Outdoor Swimming Pool. Swimming is a fantastic low impact activity, it increases your heart-rate, improves your muscle strength and your cardiovascular fitness. It’s great for those who want to have a leisurely swim, as well as those who want more of a workout and complete a few lengths before enjoying one of our other facilities. Our Outdoor Pool is a peaceful space, surrounded by lavender and stunning hanging baskets with the latest seasonal flora and fauna. It’s the perfect spot to sit and relax, especially in the warmer summer months.
(Please note the Outdoor Heated Swimming Pool is seasonal opening and subject to weather conditions)
Monsoon Experience Shower
The experience shower is perfect to improve circulation in your body, the Monsoon Shower will cool you down and restore your normal body temperature after using the Steam Room or Sauna and the Tropical Shower will raise your body temperature to encourage blood flow. The experience shower will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized, and ready to enjoy the rest of your Spa day or break.
During your lifetime you will walk on average the length of the Earth’s equator five times, so take a seat and treat your feet to our wonderful Foot Spas. This treatment will help increase blood circulation, relieve pain and tension and leaves your feet feeling well and truly pampered. Indulge your senses as you sit back and relax, feel the bubbles soothe you skin, and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, your feet will soon feel as good as new!
