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.

Booked a couple of treatments the day after we arrived, lovely lady on the reception desk managed to fit me in despite being so busy. I relaxed in the quiet room before my first treatment which was lovely, then the massage was out of this world. I was so stressed when went in, but totally revised when I came out.... More

Lunch was lovely as was the restaurant area. The receptionist at the spa reception was lacking people skills. I'd booked our treatments in a room together but that didnt... More

Wow! What an amazing day. We were greeted at reception and taken through to the lounge area where we sat in front of an open fire and enjoyed a pot of tea. We then took the lift down to the Spa. The pool was inviting and crystal clear. We were given our towels and rope, they were just like new!... More

My daughter and I both had a Hot Stone Body Massage at the same time in the same Treatment room. Initially it felt a little strange as I had never experienced this before, but I soon relaxed and the Therapist gave me a lovely, firm Hot Stone massage as requested.
