Development of the new spa at Mullion Cove is having the ‘desired effect on business’ with a rise in both forward bookings and winter occupancy levels at the hotel in Cornwall.
General manager Daniel Thompson told Boutique Hotelier that feedback to the new purpose-built facility at the three-star hotel had been ‘amazing’ with forward bookings up on last year as the new addition looks to help Mullion Cove become a year round resort.
“I am completely over the moon and thrilled with the amazing feedback we have been receiving from our hotel guests and locals visiting to enjoy spa days and our range of YOVA and made for life holistic therapies,” explains Thompson. “It’s also encouraging to see forward bookings up on last year and the spa team having busy schedules.
“We built this facility with the view to increase our winter occupancy and early indications show that the spa is having the desired effect on business.
“The spa was designed to make the most of our unique location which boasts unrivalled views and it is an absolute pleasure to now watch guests relaxing, enjoying and pampering themselves whilst taking in all that Cornwall has to offer in our area of outstanding natural beauty.”
The spa uses colours and materials to ‘evoke Cornwall and its tin mining history’, utilising coppers, bronzes, brass, tins, silvers and granite, combined with splashes of blues and greens inspired by the sea.
The use of seaweeds and sea salts incorporated into treatments and products will help to add a feeling of natural and organic relaxation.
Natural sounds, such as recordings of the Mullion sea washing against the pebbles in the harbour, along with the use of foraged seaweed from the lizard and salt products derived from the Lizard peninsula will also be utilised.
Alongside the new spa, four more luxury apartments have also been built to add to the hotel’s popular self-catering cottages, as business continues to grow for the property owned by the Grose family.
