Ireland gets destination spa

A new destination spa - island spa at the Sheraton Fota Island Golf Resort & Spa - is opening in Cork.  Designed to concentrate on wellbeing, the spa uniquely caters for the restoration of personal energy, for those clients in pursuit of golfing excellence, as well as those looking for holistic relaxation and pampering.

Featuring an Italian spa product line [Comfort Zone], island spa offers an extensive range of treatments in a tranquil and peaceful setting. The Spa’s signature treatments have been specially designed to incorporate aspects of the Spa’s stunning surroundings and marine environment.
David Long, Director of Spa, island spa, said, “island spa adds a new dimension for spas in Ireland, as we offer a number of unique features that you can not find in other spas in Ireland or the UK. Working with renowned skin care specialists such as Comfort Zone and Les Luneides, island spa offers over 61 treatments, ranging from facials, body envelopments, and water based spa experiences.  What also sets us apart are the breathtaking grounds of Fota Island Golf Course, which have been the inspiration in developing a spa that caters both for pre and post golf treatments, as well as holistic pampering and relaxation experiences.”

island spa offers spa devotees the complete spa experience, with 18 treatment rooms, including couple’s suites; a hydrotherapy suite, including the first “walking river” which uses water currents and reflexology to revitalise; plus the thermal suite with a tepidarium and hammam.  In addition, island spa offers three luxurious beauty rooms, affusion showers, floatation baths, a thalaxion room and conservatory for post treatment relaxation, leaving guests feeling completely rejuvenated.

The spa also has a fully equipped and spacious Sheraton Fitness gym, with a large swimming pool and relaxation area. There is also a juice bar for post pampering relaxation.

Sheraton Fota Island Golf Resort & Spa is currently offering a ‘Discover Fota’ package which includes a one night stay with Full Irish Breakfast for two people from £115 (€169) per room per night.
