This can be done by contacting the spa reception in advance.  Initially we are only allowing residents to book for a one hour duration in the spa wet area but should the following hour have space available when you check-in at the spa reception then you can extend this to two hours on request.

  • Ideally you should change into your swimming costume and robe in your bedroom to avoid using the changing rooms. A towel is provided when you arrive at spa reception to sign in. If you do need to use the changing rooms, for example when you are using the spa before check-in, then we ask that a mask is worn in this area.
  • Children (under 16) can swim between 8am-9am and 4pm-5.30pm but must be accompanied by a swimming adult. • Cold drinks will be available to order poolside as normal.
