Top 5 Benefits of Spa Getaways

Spa Breaks

While ultimate relaxation and getting pampered are the most loved things about a spa getaway, there are many other benefits that come with visiting a spa. Not only improving your physical well being but also your mental and emotional well being.


It is widely known that people go for a spa getaway to escape and de-stress from daily life. However, putting you in a relaxed state of mind is not the only benefit of spas, it can even reduce your chances of serious conditions such as heart disease.


As discussed above, a spa getaway can reduce the chance of serious conditions but it can also work with preventing health problems too. Treatments focusing on anti-stress techniques aim to prevent people developing health problems in later life.


Feeling like you've been slacking on your health routine? Don't worry we all do it sometimes and that's why spa getaways are so beneficial. A getaway can 'reboot' your healthy lifestyle by giving you a place with all health and well-being facilities at your fingertips. St Michaels not only offers you a variety of spa treatments but also access to our brand new Health Club so you can work on your fitness too.


Spa treatments allow you time to disconnect from technology and the outside world. It allows you to be in a safe, uninterrupted place where you can become present with your thoughts - something that is very rare in the busy world we live in today.


The more relaxed you are during the day, the better and deeper sleep you will have at night. You are disconnected from the worries of everyday life with a spa getaway and it allows you to wake up with a clearer, healthier and brighter mind.


Feel like you could use some of these benefits and escape from your busy life? Visit our spa breaks to see what St Michaels offers.

The best spa in Cornwall

I have just had the pleasure of going to the newly refurbished St. Michaels Spa with a group of friends. When you stepped into the water it was so warm and clear and felt like the most luxurious bath. There were lots of fantastic seating areas in the pool with jets that massaged all my aches and pains in all the right areas. They also had some really powerful, pummelling, overhead jets for your shoulders which were amazing...

Judy B,
The spa is amazing

I went here at the weekend for a hen spa day. The facilities are amazing, I was honestly in shock. There were two steam rooms with different aromas, an inside and outside sauna, and the pool was fantastic. I had the 60 minute massage with lavender and it was so good I nearly fell asleep. I really cannot rate how impressed I was by the spa and will be coming back for sure.

One of the best massages I've ever had

Enjoyed a stunning spa day with lunch as a belated Christmas present. Brilliant location and hydrotherapy pool, lovely food followed by one of the best massages I've ever had. Highly recommended.
