We invited Lowenna Pascoe aka Cornwall Lover on Instagram to review our Moroccan Spa Day including a 90 minute Moroccan Spa Experience, spa treatment and a spa lunch; hear what she got up to during her visit.
Starting the day off with a ramble along the coast path to Sands Resort Hotel was a treat in itself; I was already excited and overwhelmed by the awe-inspiring views as I approached the hotel. Porth, Whipsiderry and the path to Watergate Bay, the hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring north Cornwall’s golden treasures.
By 10am Storm Callum was howling and had arrived in Newquay in full force. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend a rainy day. But this isn’t just any spa. It’s something so unique to Cornwall, I didn’t really know what to expect. I had heard heaps about it online, especially on social media where the reviews made it sound incredible, so I just had to check it out for myself.
On arrival at the Moroccan Spa, my friend Emilie and I were greeted with fluffy robes and towels and shown to the changing rooms. After a quick five minute clothes swap, we headed into what can only be described as pure bliss. A Moroccan room that was so luxurious and authentic, we found it hard to believe we were still in Cornwall. From relaxing Moroccan music, beautifully bright coloured furnishings and pretty lanterns hanging from the ceiling, the detail in the room was exceptional.
After walking around the room taking in all the intricate detail, we spotted the bubbling Jacuzzi and couldn’t wait to jump in. The spa was quiet so we had the Cedar hot tub all to ourselves as we sunk down under the water. Pulling ourselves out of the bubbles, we later relaxed in the barrel heat room.
Feeling stress free and lighter than ever, we retreated to the brightly coloured room where we indulged in Moroccan tea, cakes and a glass of prosecco, whilst sitting back in the comfortable chairs.
The spa has an amazing selection of treatments offering something for everyone. I chose the back, neck and shoulder massage on this occasion. The therapist used plant essential oils and explained how the massage would encourage the body to heal itself, easing tension and relieving stress. Sounds good right? And it was. If this isn’t for you give the Indian Head Massage, Rose and Vanilla Facial or the Ocean Breeze Spa Pedicure a try. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Afterwards we headed up to the restaurant for a spot of lunch and a front row seat to Storm Callum. Service was impeccable, and our food was incredibly good. I highly recommend the chicken and couscous salad.
Once the rain had cleared it was time to head home and finish off the most relaxing rainy afternoon. I can’t recommend this place enough. Whether you’re a couple looking for a twilight spa evening or a group wanting a girly day out, head to Sands Resort Hotel's Moroccan Spa.
