Was trying to think of somewhere to take my Mother-In-Law locally to here (as I’m not familiar with the area) and this looks great!
Thanks for your help!
I am adding this comment to correct the facts stated in the view of Jessica in Jan 2010 (See above) .ie " on Sundays clothing is optional". Sadly this is no longer the case. Like Jessica, my wife have been been regular visitors to the centre on Sundays. However in January 2010 the centre changed it's dress code and made clothing compulsary on Sundays, although woman still have the option to enjoy the facilities without swimwear on other (women only) days, gentlemen are no longer permitted to do so, and having used the centre only twice since the rule changes I have found the freedom and the relaxed friendly atmosphere once found there has ceased. My wife and I and many of our friends and family no longer use the centre. Indeed I discovered this web site whilst searching for alternative spa facilities.
Very nice, on Sundays clothing is optional. I go every Sunday when you can also go clothing optional in the facilities. Recommended *** . Different treatments are on offer including Indian head massage and a number of classes and workshops. very recommended infra red sauna! witch cost only 8 pounds and you can go as single too.
Unfortunately, if you check out the Centre's website, it is no longer clothing optional on Sundays. As an alternative check The Forest Spa
HI, CAN YOU SAY A BIT MORE ABOUT "THE FOREST SPA"? WHERE IS IT?
Just put "The Forest Spa" in Google and the website comes up near the top with heading The Forest Spa.
This little place comes as a bit of a surprise, since it seems to be located in an average house on an average(ish) street. What a nice surprise it is too - you walk in and it instantly feels relaxing. They provide robes and towels, so you can wander around the different saunas, steam rooms, pools and whatever else and just relax and enjoy yourself. The garden outside is small but totally lovely, a great place to just sit and bask in the sun. There’s also a lounge area upstairs where you can get something to eat, so long as you can fool yourself you don’t want chocolate cake. Had a great time here on a friend’s hen night, and would totally recommend it
I had my honeymoon here a few years ago and it was wonderful! You can pay a basic rate for access to all the steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs etc and that package is incredibly reasonable. There’s also the option to add more treatments, such as massage and colour therapy, and these are great for a treat.
I went in the floatation tank when I visited and it was a great experience. I got to spend an hour lying in a dark room, floating in a shallow tank of salty water (they provide vaseline to coat your legs etc if you have recently shaved because otherwise it STINGS).
There’s a cafe which sells a range of healthy snacks and drinks, and there are beds to lounge back and read on. The garden is lovely and the whole experience is very relaxing. I’d definitely recommend it and can’t wait to go back.
If you want to get away from it all, this place is a real hidden gem, tucked away in Cliften in a residetnial area that is so peaceful and tranquil once there, you immediately forget your in a city. You can go and use the facilities for a morning or afternoon and includes an outdoor jacuzzi and plunge pool (not for the faint hearted) and indoors there are similar facilities and a chill out room. They offer every treatment under the sun and run regular courses on such things as meditation. This is a great place to unwind.
This is one of my favourite places in Bristol. If you can't get away for a fortnights holiday to recharge your batteries, treat yourself to a day of R&R here and you will feel totally refreshed, like a power holiday in a few hours!
The spa facilities are reasonably priced at £27 (you stay as long as you like) and include spa whirlpool, sauna, steam rooms, infra red sauna and relaxation area. In the garden is an American hot tub, redwood barrel sauna and cold plunge pool (try it, you might like it!). Fluffy towels are provided and bath robes can be hired at a small charge.
Upstairs is the imaginatively designed lounge overlooking the garden and providing a valuable space to recline and snooze. Hot drinks are served and you're welcome to take in your own picnic, although alcohol is not permitted.
For an extra special indulgence, you can book yourself in for a massage or try some shiatsu or acupuncture. The relaxation centre also provides space for therapists practising in the Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique and theta DNA healing. Regular classes in yoga, Pilates and meditation are also held here as well as workshops training in various therapies. The only drawback about this place is having to leave at the end of the day!
The Relaxation Centre describes itself as an oasis of calm in the midst of the city.
Facilities are both indoors and out and admission to the spa ncludes use of jacuzzi, hot tub, plunge pool, saunas, steamroom, restful lounge and meditation garden. At an extra cost you can have an hour in the sensory deprived floatation tank or treat yourself to one of many holistic treatments such as Indian head massage or reflexology. Women only sessions available many days of the week and also specific time slots for couples. Robes and towels are provided although a naturist approach is also acceptable at single sex sessions.
It is a tranquil lighthearted venue which restores peace to the mind and the body if the stresses and strains of city life are taking their toll. Prices range from £17 - £32 depending on time of visit. Gift vouchers available,
