Spa & Leisure

The SPA at The Cliff Bay was completely renovated in 2013 and has since been impressing guests with their wide range of facilities and treatments. The importance of a good spa experience is close to their hearts, so the specialised treatments available are impressive. The facilities include eight treatment rooms, one suite, a Turkish bath, an indoor Jacuzzi, an outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, an indoor/outdoor pool, another outdoor pool, and an equipped gym. There is also the option to take on marine life with some diving in the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, if you don’t fancy getting wet, you can play tennis, table tennis, or billiards, with facilities for all of these things on site.

Using products from the ESPA range, their treatments will put a kick in your step and bring a smile to your face. Choose from body treatments, facials, wraps, massages, relaxation, slimming and toning massages, hot stone therapy, aromatherapy, and reflexology.
