A 90 minute session in our Thermal Suite & Hydrotherapy Pool is complimentary to our resident guests.

To maintain the tranquility and serenity within the spa and to enhance your enjoyment of the facilities, we limit the number of thermal suite and hydro pool bookings we accept at any one time and therefore, bookings must be made in advance.

Health Advice

Information about your health enables us to recommend the best treatments for you, please advise us of any medical issues you may have such as high blood pressure, heart problems, varicose veins, allergies, or any other condition

At the start of your spa day you will complete a medical questionnaire. This is available online and can be completed in advance should you wish to bring it with you.

Before having your treatments, it is important for us to know if you are pregnant or have undergone recent surgery or received medical treatment.

All treatments are booked subject to medical status. Suitability of treatments will be re confirmed on arrival at the spa. If you fail to notify us prior to your visit of pregnancy or a medical condition, we reserve the right to refuse offering treatments and charge for the treatment time reserved.

Thermal Suite & Hydrotherapy Pool

We recommend that our guests do not use the Thermal Suite & Hydrotherapy Pool for longer than 90 minutes as prolonged exposure to high temperatures may cause faintness, dehydration and overheating. The Thermal Suite & Hydrotherapy Pool is not available to pregnant guests.

Age Restrictions

The Thermal Suite, Hydrotherapy Pool and Treatments are available to guests 16 years and over.


We advise you to arrive for your appointment 15 minutes ahead of time to allow yourself the opportunity to complete your health questionnaire and relax prior to the treatment. If you are late, your treatment time may be shortened and the same treatment price will apply. To make the most of your treatment you are welcome to take time to relax and unwind in the post treatment relaxation room, after your treatment.

What To Bring

For Thermal Bathing and using the Hydrotherapy Pool, you will need to bring your own swimsuit. Robes, Slippers and towels are provided for your spa experience.

If you are having a treatment without using the Thermal Suite & Hydrotherapy Pool, you will normally keep your underwear on or your therapist can provide you with disposable briefs if you prefer.

Our therapists are professionally trained in proper draping techniques to ensure your privacy and comfort at all times. Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel as well as a Hairdryer and Straighteners are all available for you to use in our changing rooms. It is advisable to leave your jewellery and valuables in your room or at home. No sharp objects or razors are allowed in the Spa.

Does the Spa have a Swimming Pool?

We do not have a swimming pool in the Spa. We have a Marine Hydrotherapy Pool which is specifically designed as a Spa experience. It contains natural salt instead of chemicals and is heated consistently to body temperature (between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius). It also contains air loungers, which act like a Jacuzzi and a swan neck fountain. There are swimming pools nearby we can recommend.

Does the Spa have a Jacuzzi?

We do not have a stand alone Jacuzzi but the air loungers in the Marine Hydrotherapy Pool produce a very similar effect on the body.

Pregnancy and our Spa

The Thermal Suite and Hydrotherapy Pool cannot be used by pregnant women as there is a potential for the core body temperature to be affected. This can cause ill effects to the foetus.

During pregnancy we still offer a wide variety of treatments. These include; manicures, pedicures, facials and our New Life massage which is specifically designed for ladies who are three months pregnant or more.

Do you have a Gym?

We have a Fitness Suite located away from the Spa in the hotel grounds. It has the latest exercise equipment and flat screen televisions for you to watch while working out. It is for the exclusive use of hotel residents. Children of sixteen or older may use the fitness suite if accompanied by an adult.


Alcohol is prohibited on health grounds as it acts as a diuretic causing dehydration. The Thermal Suite will only further increase this effect. If you have consumed alcohol you should wait at least two and a half hours before going into the Thermal suite.

Disabled Access

The Spa has a disabled chair lift to all levels. Disabled toilet and shower facilities are available as are fully adjustable treatment couches. We have disabled access to our Thermal Suite and our Hydro Pool has access via gradual steps with a hand rail.
