Oh we do like to be beside the seaside, especially now that the sun has come out to play. Pop on those sun hats, slather on the sunscreen and head to the beach. Or even better, hop into the infinity pool and enjoy views of the Atlantic from the bubbling, heated, cliff top hydro pools of some of the South West’s top seaside spas!
Part of the luxury family hotels collection, Fowey Hall is one of the most delicious seaside spas on the Cornish coast. A beautiful Queen Anne mansion surrounded by charming grounds and blissful sea views, it has an award-winning restaurant with a dedicated tea provided for little ones at 5 and 5.30 pm. The hotel has everything for children, including outdoor play opportunities, children’s activities, a zipwire and flexible mealtimes. This child-friendly approach extends to the spa, which offers teen treatments and children’s swimming, but for parents looking to enjoy some alone time there’s a creche. That gives you space to enjoy the pool, outdoor hot tub with ocean views and a treatment or two.
On a clifftop above Fistral Beach beach, this eponymous hotel and spa is modern and welcoming. Surf to your heart’s content before floating in the beautiful pool featuring underwater music and a domed, starlit ceiling. Then relax in the steam room and spa bath, and enjoy organic GAIA spa rituals, including an ocean ritual and crystal therapy.
Combining a family-friendly hotel with a luxurious spa experience, Bedruthan Hotel and Spa is in a blissful location overlooking the beach and the Atlantic. The spa draws upon the traditions of social Nordic health cultures when it comes to facilities, and boasts a particularly special array of indoor and outdoor pools including a hydro pool that stares seaward. Treatments are inspired by Ayurveda and therapists here offer thoughtful approaches to both meditation and massage. The Sensory Spa Garden is also a treat filled with fragrant flowers and herbs.
Cornish getaways don’t come much more relaxing than this. Steps from the seashore and all its beauty, you’ll be enchanted by the coastal views and salty fresh air afforded from so many vantage points in the hotel. The sea theme is carried into the spa, with a lovely pool and hot tub as well as luxury body and facial treatments, which include a signature sea salt body exfoliation, all designed to leave you feeling revitalised and gorgeous.
With an unrivalled clifftop location, Polurrian on the Lizard is surrounded by the kind of natural beauty that gives you an instant feeling of wellness. Inside, the leisure and spa facilities continue the feel good factor with an outdoor pool, mind body yoga classes and a verandah for relaxing and watching seals basking on the rocks. It’s the perfect place to spend time exploring the area. For example, bodyboarding at Polurrian Cove, just a 10 minute stroll from the hotel, dropping by champion surfer Dan Joel, who runs a surf school at Poldhu Cove or strolling along the coast path.
