Enjoy some autumn indulgence at St Michaels Resort

A busy world leaves many of us seeking sanctuary away from the stresses and obligations of daily life. Find yours, at St Michaels Resort, Falmouth.

Especially now, after a frantic summer, a rejuvenating spa break by the sea – breathing in the fresh ocean air and seeking solace from the luxurious comfort of sub-tropical gardens – probably seems like a prospect too good to be true. Then again, why should it be?

At St Michaels Resort, you can tuck yourself away from the hustle and bustle and hide from the incoming autumn chill in the south west’s largest Hydrotherapy pool – heated to a cosy 35°C. Other enticing facilities include an outdoor barrel sauna, the world’s only Cornish sea-salt steam room, and a 12-seater hot tub with views across Falmouth Bay.

Ease away from those familiar aches and pains as you relax amongst the bubbles of a Hydrotherapy Experience, before strolling to the Garden Kitchen or the Brasserie on the Bay restaurant for a relaxed dining experience overlooking Falmouth’s seaside gem, Gyllyngvase beach. Enjoy a decadent and delicious meal to nourish your body after a relaxing spa session, before heading back out to the spa and spa gardens for some well-earned rest and recuperation.

At St Michaels, you can immerse yourself in the changing seasons. Revel in the serene beauty that autumn offers, inhale the salty sea breeze of Cornwall’s wild shores, and watch as the colours of the sub-tropical gardens fade from vibrant greens to warm golden hues. Whilst you’re there, explore an impressive selection of treatments and offers in the luxurious spa. Each treatment is tailored to suit the individual for a bespoke experience. Pamper yourself with a soothing and revitalising facial, release the tension with a full-body massage, or drift into a meditative state with a scalp massage provided by a team of expert therapists.

Can’t bear to leave? Then why not complete your experience with a short stay? St Michaels’ new Spa Garden Lodges offer uninterrupted privacy, allowing you to hide away in the sub-tropical gardens and enjoy a cosy evening nestled next to the woodburner. You might even decide to walk the short distance to the beach and enjoy a twilight swim.
