St Michaels Falmouth Hotel in Cornwall, UK, has been transformed into a luxury destination resort and spa following a multi-million pound investment.

Set on the ground floor of the hotel, the St Michaels Spa features 10 treatment rooms with ensuite showers, as well as a hydrotherapy pool - the largest in the southwest of England; a Cornish salt steam room - a world first; and a rainforest steam room.

Other facilities include a Finnish herbal sauna, a Moroccan Rhassoul and three types of experience shower, including an 'Ice Bucket Challenge' experience, as well as a salon offering nail services, a relaxation room and a champagne bar.

The spa is equipped with Gharieni massage tables, and boasts an extensive treatment menu, with more than 60 treatments and experiences from a range of brands including Elemis, Made for Life Organics, The Natural Spa Factory, Ishga and Natura Bissé.

Outdoor facilities include a sun deck, a barrel sauna offering sea views and a red cedar-wood hot tub.

The renovation – which was spearheaded by chairman Nigel Carpenter in partnership with James Houlston of BH Hotels – includes the addition of a 13,000sq ft health club, linked to the spa via a 'Wellness Walk'.

Spanning three floors, the health club features a large outdoor fitness terrace, a spin studio, a gig-rowing studio, a 17-metre pool and offers more than 100 instructor-led classes, including Sunrise yoga, WeSup fitness on a paddle board and rowing classes.

The swimming pool is one of the largest in the area and includes a pool sun terrace, heated seating, experience showers and a glass-fronted sauna and steam room.

“This substantial investment has transformed St Michaels into one of the UK’s leading wellness resorts. Featuring a world-class spa and state-of-the-art health and fitness facilities all within the same site, it is exceptional by virtue of its complementary offering," said Carpenter.
