World's first Cornish salt steam room at St Michaels Falmouth following relaunch

Cornish hotel St Michaels Falmouth has unveiled its expansive spa and health club following a multi-million pound investment.

Located overlooking Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth, Cornwall, owner BH Hotels is positioning St Michaels as a destination resort post-relaunch.

A substantial portion of the investment – reported to be £50m by Boutique Hotelier was spent on developing the spa, which now features a hydrotherapy pool billed as the largest in the southwest with 21 massage stations, and a Cornish salt steam room that the hotel says is a world first.

The 10-treatment room spa uses Elemis, The Natural Spa Factory, Ishga, Natura Bissé and Cornish brand Made for Life Organics; and also houses a rainforest steam room, Finnish herbal sauna and Moroccan rhassoul.

Offering sea views, outside there is a sundeck with red cedar hot tub and barrel sauna.

Nail treatments by OPI are carried out in the manicure and pedicure champagne bar.

A 13,000sq ft health club over three floors offers membership as well as catering to hotel guests, with an outdoor fitness terrace, spin and rowing studios and over 100 instructor-led classes per week.

Classes including sunrise yoga and paddle boarding were added to make the most of the resort’s beachside location.

“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 St Michaels chairman Nigel Carpenter.
