Serenity at the Spa

Discover a new level of luxury wellness at St Moritz Hotel.

Situated in an elevated position above Polzeath, St Moritz Hotel has always been known for its luxury offering. With a Miami-chic vibe, wellness and relaxation are catered for at every turn. This winter saw an extensive, multi-million-pound renovation of the hotel’s entire pool area under the expert eye of designer Steve Coombe of 3idog. The result is a wellness space that rivals the best in the South West. The thoughtful design incorporates intimate spaces where guests can relax with ergonomic heated loungers throughout.

Complementing the hotel’s Miami-inspired interiors, Italian rock signature flooring and marble white mosaic pool tiling abounds. Neutral walls create a feeling of calm, working effortlessly with pops of blush pink tiles.

Four-postered day beds capture the vibrant and energetic essence of Miami, with bold patterns of turquoise, coral and sunny yellows.
The amazing open-air setting of the therapeutic, high-tech outdoor hydro pool invites guests to soak in warm waters; a
unique sauna experience combines a classic high-heat sauna along with a new Nordic scented sauna; as well as a crystal steam room to support deeper levels of meditation. Its steam cleanses and purifies the skin, relieving tension and boosting the immune system, while the crystal brings a deep energy to the experience. Completing the circle of hot and cold therapies are drench and experience showers, as well as a striking ice fountain. The Cowshed Spa signature therapies continue to complement this new luxury wellness offering.

If you are looking for the ultimate Cornish stay, then the St Moritz doesn’t just tick the wellness box. The outdoor pool with seaside pool club is a great place to have some fun in the sun for the whole family – little ones will love a ‘whippy’ ice-cream from the 99’er beach hut. And, as the day draws to a close, guests can enjoy elegant dining in the hotel’s Shorecrest restaurant before laying heads on soft pillows in elegant bedrooms for a restful night’s sleep, ahead of another day’s adventure.
