A new £10m swimming and wellbeing centre has opened at five-star hotel in Cornwall, The Headland.
The Aqua Club opened on July 25 in line with government guidance following a construction project that began in spring last year.
In the same month as The Headland celebrated its 120th anniversary, the hotel revealed its new addition complete with six pools, sun terrace and new Mediterranean-inspired restaurant named The Deck.
Carolyn Armstrong, owner, said: “It was a great pleasure to introduce our hotel and cottage guests to The Aqua Club on 25 July.
“Combined with our five-star facilities and enviable location on the north Cornwall coast, The Aqua Club will provide our guests with some much-needed relaxation – and a place to escape and recharge – following a turbulent few months in lockdown.”
She continued: “The summer marks the 120th anniversary of The Headland first opening its doors to the public. While COVID-19 has brought an incredibly challenging start to the season, the opening of The Aqua Club is a brilliant way to celebrate our rich and interesting history, whilst looking forward to the future.”
The opening of the new centre marks the end of a further phase of investment for The Headland’s owners, John and Carolyn Armstrong, who have spent in excess of £40m renovating and improving the destination over a 40 year period.
Three pools are housed inside The Aqua Club, including a 25-metre swimming pool, a children’s splash pool, and a hydrotherapy pool.
Outside on the sun terrace there is a heated sunset spa encircled by an oceanfront edge pool, and a vitality pool with a Cornish granite menhir as a central focal point.
