Hydrotherapy is the use of water to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being. It is a therapeutic whole-body treatment that involves being massaged by air and water as well as moving and exercising in water; essentially physiotherapy in a pool. Our hydrotherapy pool is one of the largest, spa-based hydrotherapy pools in the UK and is heated to a constant 35 degrees centigrade. Our pool contains 21 hydrotherapy massage stations featuring 7 different treatment experiences – all targeting different muscle groups. A combination of the warm temperature, the water buoyancy and the range of different massage jets will leave you feeling wonderfully relaxed and rejuvenated. Then enjoy our steam experiences, including the world’s first Cornish sea salt room and a rainforest steam room, along with our glass-fronted bio sauna with selected herbs and botanicals, and our outside Finnish barrel sauna. Relax on our heated thermal loungers and unwind on the deck in our Japanese red cedar hot tub. Our journey includes experience showers with mists, rainfalls and torrents which wash away your cares.

St Michaels offers all spa guests the option to dine in the Brasserie on the Bay. We recommend that you make a reservation, so we can ensure that you dine at your preferred time and avoid any disappointment. Please call our friendly Sales Team to learn more and make a booking.
