Spa Days in Cornwall

Cornwall exudes the feeling of calm, relaxation, and mindfulness from its surroundings alone. The combination of ancient coastlines, white sand beaches and the lapping of waves on the shore can’t help but make you feel an instant sense of peace. We think this is one reason why holidaying in Cornwall is special to so many people and why the beautiful spas that have been set up along the coast have taken in every thought to help offer relaxing Cornish spa days.

If you’re looking for luxury seaside accommodation, accompanied by a blissful beachside spa day, take a look at our top recommendations for your time in Cornwall.

Sensory Spa and Spa Garden at Bedruthan Steps

This spa experience can be tailored to your needs and involves…

  • ‘Earth and Water’ Attuned Massage or Hot Poultice
  • Journey around the Sensory Spa Garden

You may be wondering what the Sensory Spa Garden is. Well, let us take you on a quick journey around! It really is ‘back to nature’ as you’re situated neatly on the cliff tops looking out to sea and they aptly describe it as being ‘part Nordic thermal therapy, part Cornish coastal wellbeing’.

In the sensory spa garden you go through a series of processes. The first is the dry rub to exfoliate, followed by a warm shower. Next, a sauna with a view! After you’ve heated yourself through, it’s time for the exhilarating ice bucket. But don’t worry, after this you get to relax in their outdoor hot tubs and you’ll even be brought a fresh and hydrating drink! Once you’ve finished in the hot tub it is a seaweed scrub down followed by a chill out by the firepit, whilst soaking your feet and enjoying a warming fruit tea.

Simply bliss.

– Sun Terrace

At the St Ives Harbour Spa, you can choose between taking a relaxing morning to yourself, making use of all the great facilities they have at your own leisure. Or, you could opt for one of their wonderfully indulging and relaxing spa days. Here is just a small example of what you can you look forward too.

HarSPA Together
Spending a relaxed spa day with a loved one is an absolute must whilst on holiday in Cornwall and the ‘HarSPA Together’ spa day is the perfect way to do just that.

For the couples spa day, you have full access to all of the facilities throughout your day, a relaxing and luxurious treatment all topped off by lunch or why not take it a step further and have afternoon tea in their Harbour Kitchen and Bar Terrace? You have the choice of three treatments, each an hour long. So, depending on what you feel you’re in need of, you can choose from a facial, foot and leg pamper, or a relaxing back pamper.

Refresh Spa Morning
Starting your day right is so important and having a Refresh Spa Morning at Harbour Spa is certainly one of the best ways to do this!

This spa morning is all about ‘relaxation’ and ‘rejuvenation’, how better to spend a morning on holiday? From 10am until 1pm you will have full access to all of the spa’s facilities, the choice of a 30 minute treatment followed by a delicious lunch. The treatments are tailored to you and they include an express facial, ‘drift away’ massage, or a foot and leg pamper. If it were us, we’d head to the gym for 10 (simply to enjoy the views from the treadmill), then go and unwind in the spa facilities, followed by a ‘drift away massage’. It sounds simply dreamy!

The St Ives Harbour Spa not only has top class facilities, it is situated overlooking arguably one of the most picturesque corners of St Ives. From the outside terrace, you can sit and enjoy a beverage whilst soaking in the incredible views of turquoise blue seas and white sand.

We are also very pleased to share that our beautiful apartment ‘Porthia Penthouse‘ offers its guests two free passes to the Harbour Spa. This gives you daily access to the facilities as well as 10% of your chosen treatment.
