The new St Michael’s Hotel and Spa in Falmouth is gearing up to unveil its new £2m health club, which marks the first phase of a £6m development project on site at the property.
In place of the former Falmouth Beach Hotel, which burnt down in 2014, St Michael’s Hotel is putting the finishes touches to its new addition, which features an indoor running track and outdoor fitness terrace, as the business bids to become a world-renowned wellbeing resort.
According to reports, the health club will boast one of the largest hydrotherapy pools and gyms in the region and have a gig rowing room, which the owners said doesn’t currently exist in Cornwall.
The new facility, which is due to open on June 29, will come with a gym, three classrooms and 17-metre swimming pool, including Amazon rainforest and waterfalls-in-Iceland showers.
The 1,200 sq mtr addition is due to open in four weeks and forms part of a wider £6m investment into the property, with work ongoing on the hotel’s bedrooms, restaurant, spa and bar.
32 new bedrooms will be added to the stock, due to open in August, followed by a refurbished restaurant and bar, destination spa and café in September.
St Michael’s Hotel and Spa bought the site in 2015, before the build started early last year.
Hotel owner Nigel Carpenter said: “What we hope to create by Gyllyngvase is a wellness resort with a range of facilities for locals and for visitors to enjoy.”
