Welcome to 5 Senses Spa 2,000 years ago it was believed that a spa was a place that should be more than a retreat - it was considered to be a place to nurture your mind and body. Here at the 5 Senses Spa we have created a welcoming and relaxing environment for you to enjoy the fundamental principle of SPA. Housed within the Mount Royale Hotel,we are situated within walking distance of the Micklegate Bar Walls and train station, we offer the ultimate in relaxation and pampering with treatments and massages that indulge, enhance and emphasise the importance of the five senses:- sight, taste, smell, hearing and touch. The fragrance of specially blended oils, herbs and spices fills the air so your body and mind immediately relax in anticipation of the luxurious experience that awaits. A blend of Eastern and Western massage techniques together with our aromatic oils inspire our extraordinary range of 5 Senses Spa treatments.

I went to 5 Senses Spa today for an aroma massage and pure facial... Safe to say this was like 2 hours in heaven. Had a fantastic beauty therapist called Natasha. Just left feeling very relaxed & refreshed. Will certainly be going back on a regular basis. Thanks Girls

I have been visiting 5 Senses Spa for many years. Although they moved premises last year the standard of treatments and customer service has not suffered. In fact now that you can use the hotel facilities (pool, hot tub, sauna & steam room) and order food through the hotel (which is excellent) you can really make a day of it.... More

Booked 5 senses spa in December 2015 for a hen party - lots of chopping and changing between booking and visiting, which they dealt with really well. We were booked for a race weekend (so chaos in the hotel) but that didn't effect the standard of service at all. The treatments were lovely, the lunch was really nice, the outdoor... More

Went to 5 senses for two 'race day' promotion treatments- back, neck and shoulder massage and a facial. I was looked after by Charlotte who was friendly and professional. The massage and facial were both lovely- my back was full of knots before I went in and Charlotte did a brilliant job of easing tension and making me feel relaxed.... More

I was a regular attender of the 5Senses Spa in it's previous location down Bootham, but when it disappeared I assumed it had closed but it had instead relocated to the other side of town and joined with a hotel on the Mount. Clear directions pointed us through the main door and towards the receptionist Amy of 5Senses who was... More

Was bought a lovely hot stone massage and Thai foot massage as a present and was a bit sceptical as I had never been to a spa before but was pleasantly surprised how relaxing the whole experience was! The staff made you feel at ease and the treatments were fantastic I will definitely be back 🙂

I had been given a gift voucher and decided on a thai foot massage and indian head massage. The whole experience was excellent from booking & customer service to the massage experience itself - thanks to Amy and Natasha. I will definitely be going back.
