Five wellness retreats in Newquay

Best wellness experiences in Cornwall

Breathe in that fresh sea air and relax; in Cornwall wellness isn’t just a much-needed break from the rat race – it’s a way of life.  

From getting outdoors and enjoying the free mental benefits of reconnecting with nature, to indulging in some of the region’s most bone-melting spa experiences, there are numerous ways to switch off and take some time back for yourself. 

But where to start? If you’ve already stomped the coast path, dunked yourself into the cool ocean and enjoyed some forest bathing at our nearby Ladock Woods, then hitting the hot tubs is probably quite high on your priority list. 

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best wellness experiences in Cornwall that you just don’t want to miss. 

The Aqua Club at The Headland Hotel, Newquay 

Looking to escape into a world of wellness for the day, or even just an evening? The Aqua Club at the Headland Hotel is just a stone’s throw from Fistral Beach and is the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

The £10m project took three years to build and officially opened in 2020, meaning this facility is one of the most state-of-the-art spa experiences in Cornwall. 

In fact, with an outdoor heated spa and hydrotherapy pools, a sun terrace and on deck restaurant, it has everything you need to wash away the stress of a busy schedule and reconnect with the person you need most – yourself. 

Why not book in with your significant other for some time together away from the hustle and bustle? Create the couple’s getaway of your dreams whilst relaxing poolside, with beautiful views and food.

Water and Stone Wild Spa, Newquay 

If you’re looking for a spa that reignites the soul, then look no further than Water and Stone Wild Spa. This Nordic experience is all about using wood-fired saunas and ice baths to re-centre the body and relax the mind while incorporating the proven benefits of hot and cold immersion into the Cornish lifestyle as part of a healthy routine. 

And don’t worry – if you’ve never experienced cold water immersion before, experts are on hand to guide you through specialist breathing techniques.  

With retreats and pop-up locations offered throughout the year, book the next Wild Spa event here. 

Ocean Flow Yoga, Newquay 

Voted Cornwall’s best yoga studio for three years in a row, Ocean Flow Yoga actively encourages people from any background, age or physical ability to embrace the yoga lifestyle. 

With regular classes at the ocean-facing studio, as well as one-off outdoor beach events, take your current skills further or learn more about how yoga can take your wellness game to the next level – whether you’re local or just visiting for a few days, there’s plenty of sessions to try.

Jubilee Pool and Therma Spa, Penzance 

Embrace the elements at this geothermal pool, located just steps from the open sea. Built using a geothermal well, this new experience sits within Penzance’s iconic Jubilee Pool – an art deco outdoor swimming pool filled with natural seawater. 

With temperatures reaching up to 35 degrees, immerse yourself in the salt water and enjoy the view in this UK first. After your session, unwind with a glass of bubbles at the renowned Jubilee Pool Café, or plunge into the colder waters of the main pool itself. 

Sessions book up quick, so secure your spot here.   

The Sauna Society, Watergate Bay 

Enjoy the dreamy view from the cliff-tops at Watergate Bay as you let the worries of the day slip away with the Sauna Society. 

Whether you’re looking to book a private session for yourself and some friends, or you’re happy to share as a communal space, there’s no doubt this ocean-facing sauna experience will be one to remember. 

Just a short walk away from the beach, watch the sunset on a summer’s evening or cool yourself down with a fresh dip in the ocean below to start your day right.
