Kick back, pamper yourself and feel good again at one of Cornwall’s beachside gems.
Cornwall is virtually spilling over with beachside hotels, but at St Michaels Resort, things are a little different. On arrival, the sub-tropical gardens and stunning Gyllyngvase Beach compete for your gaze, but once inside the resort, the sense of sanctuary is completed with a spa and health club quite unlike anywhere else. The spa is dominated by the South West’s largest hydrotherapy pool, but also includes the world’s only sea salt steam room, a herbal sauna and an array of treatments including a Moroccan mud Rhassoul Experience. The health club is a completely separate space and has it’s own large pool and 315 square metres of state-of-the-art gym.
Perched by the coast in Falmouth, it’s got everything you need for a weekend of indulgence and wellness. Starting with the view. Pick one of the bay-view rooms and you’ll be torn between your book and simply staring out of the window at the shimmering turquoise tones of Falmouth Bay. And following a lazy time and some pampering in the spa, the fresh and contemporary Mediterranean bites served at Garden Kitchen feel like the perfect lunch, perfectly paired with views of the sub-tropical gardens below.
Personally, for us it’s all about the treatments (try the aromatherapy fully body massage, it’s divine); once you’ve had all those knots smoothed away, you’ll be walking on air.
After a delicious meal at the relaxed and refined Brasserie on the Bay, head back to your room – all paired back maritime luxury, bleached local wood and crisp blue and white bed linen, complete with techie touches like Roberts DAB radios, personal espresso machines and flat screen TVs. You’ll sleep like the proverbial baby, and leave feeling good again.
