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 cannot recommend this wonderful Spa enough. As soon as you arrive in the reception you feel a sense of calm and tranquilly. I had the signature facial, the therapist took great pains to check my skin and use the appropriate oils and creams and the massage part of the treatment was incredibly professional and I have had many massages...

Having been to Thailand on many occasions, I have never been able to find a place in the UK to recreate the massages and atmosphere that you experience in Thailand... UNTIL NOW!! From the moment you walk into 5 Senses Spa, the decor, the smells, the atmosphere - it felt like I'd transported back to Thailand. The massage I had... More

My friend and I booked ourselves this as a treat having had wonderful treatments previously when 5senses was based in Bootham. I go for regular massages elsewhere and like it relatively firm to massage away the tension but this was on a different level. I had to tell the girl around four times to ease off and ever since I've... More

Firstly, overall it was a good experience however, the pool had debris in it, the changing rooms was like a tiny portacabin, the steam and sauna rooms were in a shed and the hot tub outside. For it to be a luxury would be an over statement. The area around the pool too looks like an eye sore. Hotel users... More

I regularly attend for massages to relieve tension in my back and have really noticed the difference in how much better these feel. So thank you to all the team for the excellent service and particularly Faye for her hard work in trying to sort out my knotty shoulders.

Although there was some good service this was limited to particular staff. Out trip was very disappointing due to poor management other various treatments we were supposed to receive. One worker seemed too ill to work

I booked the you and me package for my husbands birthday. This included a back, neck and shoulder massage and a facial. Both of us really enjoyed it. The staff are very nice and friendly. My husband is fussy and likes a strong massage and said that Charlotte got the pressure just right, as did my therapist Natasha. The facial's... More

I booked here for my friend's hen do and we were not disappointed! Debbie was so helpful and friendly from the off-set, making my complicated booking not so complicated! 4 of us had treatments, whilst the rest just used the spa facilities. The treatments were fantastic. My treatment was completed by Natasha and it was amazing- a real thai massage!... More
