Spa ExperienceIf you’re visiting us for the first time, or just haven’t been for a while, our Spa Assistants will give you a tour of the Spa Experience and explain the temperatures and benefits of each room.
The Hammam is the centre of the Spa Experience, it’s a warm area with a heated floor and heated granite seating. It’s a great place to relax between using the hot and cold experiences.
There are three Heat Experiences: the Aromasteam which has a temperature of around 45°C; the Steam Room which has temperatures between 45°C and 70°C; and the Sauna, which is a dry heat, with temperatures of up to 95°C. Please make sure you are as dry as possible before entering the Sauna, and only take dry towels into this room.
Please keep hands away from the steam outlets in the Aromasteam and Steam Room.
There are two Cold Experiences: the Plunge Pool, which has a temperature of around 10°C, and the Ice Cave which has temperatures between 0°C and 7°C.
There are white hoses situated around the Spa Experience which you can use to cool down, or to hose down the granite seating.
To maintain the temperatures of the hot and cold experiences, please close doors behind you when entering and leaving the rooms.
You will lose fluid whilst using the Heat Experiences and it is essential that you rehydrate. We provide water in the Hammam area, as well as cold drinks in the Relaxation area.
If you feel faint, dizzy or unwell at any time please leave the Spa Experience, take a seat in the Relaxation area and ask a member of staff for assistance. Panic buttons are also situated in each of the Heat Experiences.
