Y Spa Thermal Spa Experience - The Journey

Y Spa has created a fabulous space which will stimulate all of the senses.  Expansive areas filled with natural light and a warm ambient atmosphere. The area incorporates large picture windows to the terrace, bringing the outside in, whatever the weather.

This little bit of luxury allows you to use hot and cold experiences as therapy, the benefits of which are far reaching and include: improved respiration and circulation, relief of rheumatic aches, pains and stiff joints as well as improvements to skin texture with benefits to those suffering from eczema or skin conditions.  Combining heat followed by cold boosts the body's natural defences, shifting your entire metabolism up a gear.



42 degrees     100 % humidity

It is all about perspiring pleasantly as you would in a sauna, but in a totally different climate - not so hot but a good deal more humid. This combination of high humidity and radiant heat gently invigorates the skin, respiratory and circulation system.

Unwind in a magical cavern with iridescent mosaics and colour changing mood lighting.

Use to purify and relax both body and mind.



55 degrees and humid

A soft sauna has a lower temperature than "Some like it hot" our traditional outdoor sauna and humidity provides a gentler heat and softer experience to the traditional sauna.

Relaxing in Softy is the ideal way to recharge your batteries as well as a skin detox. It improves circulation and allows muscle relaxation and provides a peaceful space away from everyday life.

Use as an escape or for pre or post massage or exercise.



42 degrees   100% humidity

Similar to Steamy but with salt infused steam.

The room feels like it has been honed from the side of a mountain and the humid salty air is reminiscent of a walk by the sea.  We all feel better when the air is purified and salt is known to have many healing effects and can aid respiration, stimulate blood flow and cleanse the skin.

Use as an aid in detoxification, decongestion and weight loss.


Some Like It Hot!

85 degrees or hotter    low humidity

This beautiful Kelo wood sauna, made with one hundred year old logs, gives the hottest of the Y spa experiences and is not for the faint hearted!  It is located outdoors in our Spa Garden and can be accessed via the Hydrotherapy pool or the Garden terrace.

Use as pure relaxation post exercise or for weight loss and detoxification.


The Hydrotherapy Pool

Hydrotherapy has been around for thousands of years. In its simplest form, hydrotherapy can be described as therapy through water. Much warmer than a swimming pool, the Hydrotherapy Pool is a place to relax and let the bubbling waters still your body.  Used to treat common ailments such as muscle cramps, circulatory diseases, arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, balance and stress-related disorders; hydrotherapy is a great way to spend some time.

Relax on the bubble bed or massage tension away using the body jets and revel in the wonders of nature enjoying the outdoor Hydrotherapy Pool all year round.


The Chill Zone

Traditionally when using heat facilities you cool off in between to give the body a rest and to make the most of the next experience.

The Chill Zone lets you choose how to cool down… either the gentle cooling Mist shower or more invigorating Tropical shower route takes you on a  journey towards the Frost wall where you will have truly cooled down, contracting your blood vessels, stimulating your circulation and oxygen intake.


Big Sleep

Ergonomic loungers with warm snuggle blankets and a fire place, together with a selection of books on fashion and glamour with which to gently drift away…… all add up to a big ZZZZ


Time Out

Our Time Out is the perfect place to catch up with the papers or curl up and finish a chapter or two of your current read.  Or immerse yourself in one of our great coffee table books.  With a window to the outside it's just a nice way to relax and reflect before afternoon tea.  Tucked away behind the opulent curtains is our waterbed area. Here there are three waterbeds warmed to body temperature, where you can dream a little dream or two.


Our suggested journey through the Thermal Spa

For Pure Relaxation

Use the Steamy and then Softy experiences and dip in and out of the Mist shower in between use of the Hydrotherapy Pool. Then depending on your bravery use either Softy or Some like it Hot!  To finish off grab a Big Sleep with afternoon tea and some more Big Sleep possibly followed by Hydrotherapy Pool again and a glass of bubbles!


For Detox and Weight Loss

Begin with the Hydrotherapy Pool and then, depending on your bravery, go for Some like it Hot or Softy.  Then use the Mist shower and the Frost wall to seriously cool down, before going for some time in Steamy or Salty.  Cool down afterwards and then rest in Time Out or Big Sleep drinking lots of water.  For optimum results take a massage or detox treatment or combine with a Rasul in the Mud Glorious Mud chamber….
