St Moritz wild spa, regenerative spa breaks

Relax your mind, nourish your body and soothe your soul at one of these regenerative spa breaks in the South West

St Moritz, Cornwall

Not one for spa-goers looking to leisurely rotate between the cosy confines of the hot tub, sauna and steam room until their toes start to wrinkle, Wild Spa at St Moritz delivers an exhilarating journey within an enriching natural landscape.

Taking place on the clifftops overlooking the rugged north Cornwall coastline, the two-hour immersive experience journeys through wood-fired saunas and hot tubs, plunge pools and drench showers. Guests can personalise their route to maximise the benefits of hot- and cold-water therapies – or find their favourite spot and soak under open skies.

A cloud-gazer lunch or star-gazer dinner in the clifftop tipi is the perfect way to round off the unique experience. The menus make the most of local seasonal ingredients to create salubrious dishes which will continue to nourish mind, body and soul.

Una Spa, regenerative spa breaks in the South West

Una, Cornwall

Let the stress melt from your body on the massage table, feel your skin glow after a refreshing facial or simply sink into the gentle bubbles of the hot tub at this contemporary Cornish retreat. The collection of luxury lodges a stone’s throw from St Ives centres around the Una spa, an oasis of calm where you can screen out notifications, emails and the to-do list for an hour or two and focus on you.

The pleasingly leisurely pace at Una encourages guests to unwind and appreciate the art of not doing much at all. With a casual restaurant and bar on-site and a heated outdoor lido in the heart of the wildflower-fringed courtyard, there’s really no need to venture further than a few hundred feet if utter relaxation is required.

Una’s three-night regenerative spa break is the perfect opportunity to break the stress cycle of everyday life and return to reality feeling refreshed and revitalised. Based on two people sharing a spacious one-bedroom lodge, it includes a 55-minute spa treatment per person and dinner one night of the stay. Rates start from £552 for three nights.

Thyme spa

Thyme, Cotswolds

The antithesis of the wind-swept shelters that punctuate Scotland’s wild countryside, the Botanical Bothy at Thyme in Gloucestershire is a tranquil haven in which to harness the healing power of breath. Venture inside to unlock new levels of relaxation via a Signature Ritual: a combination of breathwork, pressure techniques and massage culminating in a blissful soak in a herbal bath on the veranda.

The bothy is just one element of the regenerative spa experience at the uber-luxe Cotswolds destination. Nourishing treatments that focus on mindfulness take place in a charming chocolate-box cottage in the grounds and use essential-oils-infused botanical products from Thyme’s sister brand, Bertioli. 

Meadow Spa welcomes day guests and offers a menu of tailored experiences. However, the best way to fully bliss out in this beautiful setting is to stay the night in one of the stunning bedrooms or cottages. 

Saunton Sands Hotel Source Spa, marine vitality pool

Saunton Sands Hotel, Devon

Gaze over the golden sands of one of the UK’s best beaches and watch a peachy sun slip behind the horizon from the warm embrace of the marine-vitality pool at this iconic Art Deco hotel. The state-of-the-art Source Spa at Saunton Sands is encased with a floor-to-ceiling window, treating guests to incredible views over the idyllic three-mile beach below.

The multi-award-winning spa (it was recently named best in the UK by The AA) offers a wide variety of overnight breaks, wellness packages and special treatments. All hotel guests get access, but it’s worth upgrading to a spa experience if your plans centre around relaxing stints in the steam room, revitalising body scrubs and lounging by the heated indoor pool.

Explore the tailored seasonal offers, or plump for the classic one-, two- or three-night spa break which includes breakfast, dinner and treatments. One-night spa breaks from £195.

Summer Lodge, Dorset

Float – starfish style – in the warm waters of Summer Lodge’s heated pool to watch clouds skim across the sky above. Housed in a huge conservatory in the grounds, it’s a beautiful spot to laze (in or out of the pool) and watch the world go by.

The Dorset country house’s spa breaks are designed to rejuvenate, cleanse and refresh.  From bespoke day experiences to overnight retreats, there are lots of options – many of which include lunch or dinner at the exquisite restaurant. Locals who want a dose of indulgence after work can book in for a Twilight Experience which features a 25-minute treatment and three hours’ use of the spa.
