Following a recent a multi-million-pound refurbishment project St Michaels Falmouth has flung open its doors to the public as a luxury spa resort.
The newly transformed 32-room Cornish property is now a host to a myriad of treatment and beauty options, including not only the largest hydrotherapy pool in southwest England but also the world’s first Cornish sea salt steam room.
The refurbishment of St Michaels was spearheaded by chairman Nigel Carpenter, in partnership with James Houlston of BH Hotels, who said: “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. Taking all of this together with its exceptional location overlooking Blue Flag Gyllyngvase beach, St Michaels is truly a luxury wellness resort like no other.”
Highlights of the project include the new St Michaels Spa, which features 10 treatment rooms with en-suite showers as well as the aforementioned hydrotherapy pool and Cornish sea salt steam room, described by the hotel as “infusing the local salt into the steam air to help reduce toxins and clear the lungs.”
All of the St Michaels rooms feature an aesthetic inspired by the local Cornish coastline incorporating style elements such as bedheads made from reclaimed timber and local nautical themed artworks.
Each bedroom offers 6ft wide super king deluxe beds, with luxurious, high-thread-count linen; Elemis bathroom amenities, walk-in rainforest showers, Lavazza coffee machines, Roberts radios, a mini fridge and a selection of local treats to eat and drink, including a jar of homemade cookies.
The resort unveils two new restaurants – Brasserie on the Bay (above) and the Garden Kitchen, both of which serve seasonal dishes, using produce from local producers as well as fresh fish from the and seafood from the ocean opposite.
