The Bluewater Spa has recently undergone a major refurbishment and is one of Bournemouth's finest with over 600m2 of floor space offering 3 treatment rooms and a wide range of fantastic treatments to help you to relax and unwind. Located in the 4 star Connaught Hotel, the spa proudly boasts a truly magnificent facility which comprises a large heated indoor 18m swimming pool - most suitable for serious swimmers - and an adjoining, fully refurbished spa pool for those just wanting to "chill" out!! By the poolside there is a luxurious, fully tiled, eucalyptus infused steam room with subtle lighting and a beautifully fitted-out sauna, also with subdued lighting, providing guests with just the right ambiance for total relaxation. The Spa has two fully equipped gymnasiums - a resistance gym for those wanting to build muscular strength and a cardio vascular gym for those looking to work on their aerobic fitness - both areas with air-conditioning. We look forward to welcoming you.

Thought it would be a nice idea to book into this spa for the day and thought the reviews looked ok. My partner and I paid £25 each to get into use the swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna. There were no avaliable sun beds when we got in (there were 6 in total) and despite paying £25 to get in... More

I'm sorry to read of your issues Joeysar but I was pleased you got your sunbed in the end. All guests wearing robes have paid for them but not all want them so we decided to keep the price down and then guests can then choose exactly what they want. I hope you enjoyed all the facilities.

My sister and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing spa day in this lovely hotel. The day included coffee on arrival, a superb 2 course lunch with a glass of bubbly. The treatments were fabulous, by very professional therapists. We chose a facial and a hot stone massage. We had time to enjoy the lovely pool, spa pool sauna and steam... More

Enjoyable spa day with lunch. Nice pool and sauna - didn't use gym facilities. Massage was good value - part of Groupon deal and the lunch was very good.

I took advantage of the spa while my daughter was working. Smallish pool but adequate for the size of hotel

A couple of girls we booked spa day, hotel was lovely and food was nice but the actual massage I had was not so great it felt like she had just finished collage and wasn't sure.

I came for a spa day for two with a friend and had an enjoyable time. Massage was excellent and we were welcomed with drinks and a tour. Lovely jacuzzi, pool, steam room and sauna. There are a couple of things that I think would really improve the quality of spa days. Firstly there are only four sun loungers, which... More

A very nice spa with good swimming pool, sauna & steam room, jacuzzi, and fitness suite. We received a lovely warm welcome. I had a full body massage which was very good, however the treatment room was right next to the fitness suite so my relaxation was compromised slightly by the noise of workout music from the room next door....
