Facilities Use – COVID-19 Safety Measures

On your next visit to the spa you can expect:

  • If using the pool, each household/bubble will be allocated half of the pool, so that you have plenty of your own space.
  • The Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna are limited to two people at once, who must be from the same household.
  • You’ll be allocated a dedicated changing cubicle, which will act as your locker, so there is no cross over at lockers.
  • You will also be allocated your own shower, which won’t be used by another guest or household while you are with us.
  • Each cubicle, toilet, shower and keys are thoroughly sanitised between each guest.
  • Each treatment room is fully sanitised between every guest, with the therapists wearing appropriate PPE so you can fully unwind.
  • The spa lounge is set to meet social distancing guidelines, along with the rest of the hotel dining areas.
  • Consultations are done online prior to your arrival, so your time with us starts as smoothly as possible.
  • You will be given a specific arrival time, to avoid any congestion on reception.
  • All linen is washed with sanitising detergent at 60 degrees.

anything else that could affect your treatment choices, at the time of booking. To avoid any disappointment, should you be currently under medical attention for any serious health conditions, such as Cancer or heart problems, a doctor’s note will need to be provided to the therapist, to confirm that it is safe for you to have a treatment such as a massage with the use of essential oils.
