The Headland Wins Prestigious National Spa Award

Luxury Cornish hotel The Headland has won a prestigious award for its elegant spa experience.

The five-star venue, overlooking Fistral Beach in Newquay, won Best Coastal Spa for the first time at the annual Good Spa Guide’s national awards ceremony.

The Headland’s spa manager Dee England said: “This is a huge accolade for us and testament to the team for everything they do each day and the approach we take in looking after our guests. We were devastated to have to close during the pandemic, but we all worked tirelessly to ensure we were ready to open at the earliest opportunity having faced unprecedented challenges.

“It is also important though to recognise that this award is equally, incredibly fulfilling to the wider team at The Headland for everything they have done to support us and to ensure that we continued to deliver the best spa experiences.”

The Headland’s spa is situated below the hotel’s first floor reception. There is an attractive thermal space with a heated pool, hot tub, spacious Swedish sauna, Cornish salt steam room, aromatherapy showers and a room in which to relax with comfortable sofas.

Guests can enjoy Elemis and OPI treatments, as well as a selection of treatments bespoke to The Headland Spa, perfect after a day overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or getting muddy in the lovely Rhassoul, a Moroccan steam chamber.

Jo Gardner, editor of Good Spa Guide, said: “Along with sea views from many rooms and common areas, the spa itself has a coastal feel with a pretty cafe lined with silver birch trees which practically spills out on the beach.”

The awards evening, held in Bedfordshire, began with a glass of alcohol-free fizz supplied by Redruth company Wild Life Botanicals. The setting for the evening was a twinkly ballroom filled with lofty LED-balloons, fairy-lit plants and a Good Spa Guide glitter wall.

Besides winning the Coastal Spa of the Year award, The Headland has also won Best Spa Day in Cornwall awarded by Muddy Stilettos, the lifestyle website for women.
