I visited Soak today with my best friend for the Rub-a-Dub-Dub experience. It was absolutely amazing and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to spend a few hours in complete relaxation. When we arrived, Dermott greeted us and gave us a very warm welcome - a lovely guy who was great fun. We were then taken into the bathroom,... More

A friend from Belfast recommended Soak. I'm not great at heat, baths or relaxation but fancied the benefits of seaweed. You control depth of bath, heat. You can cool down with a cold shower, choose your music and volume. With all this under your control you can customise the experience. The first half I struggled but finally relaxed and time...

I have enjoyed a number of seaweed baths here and love it. Relax with a choice of music your own or they can supply a wide ranging choice. The bath can be as hot as you like. Try having the pre steam using the old style box, it was fun. For those less adventurous there are steam showers.

She was very enthusiastic about the experience and the people here and we thought she might be overselling it - but not a bit of it! From the moment we walked in and spoke to Paul (who showed us around the attached Snooze apartment) we knew this... More

This is a really great place for some seaweed randomness! We only tried the baths and they were great fun. There are towels and water provided. The changing place is a bit small but manageable. You do feel quite energetic afterwards and the skin feels very soft.

The hot seaweed baths are the perfect way to warm up after a walk around the hills and beach. Staff are friendly and engaging. A must do when in Newcastle! Fantastic experience.
