So what is a 'private spa'?

Updated: Apr 21

This is one of the questions that we get asked the most, along with, how private is private?

When you arrive for your spa session here at Sandpiper, you will be given a tour of all of the facilities and then we will leave you in complete privacy to enjoy your spa time.

We make sure that you have our contact number, so that if you need anything you can just give us a call.


Nobody else will be using any area of the spa during your spa time. This includes the changing area, swimming pool, thermal spa area, spa garden, relaxation lounge and chillout lounge with refreshment area. For health and safety each booking has to be for a minimum of 2 people so that nobody is in the spa on their own.


Having a whole spa all to yourselves is a truly luxurious and unique experience. If you are with a group of friends or family you can feel free to chatter and have a giggle without disturbing anybody and if you are at the spa to relax and switch off from the world, your peace and quiet won’t be disturbed.


For a couples spa session, what could be more romantic than sitting in a jacuzzi together with nobody else around or having a whole swimming pool completely to yourselves. The music and lighting can be adjusted around the spa to create your own ambiance in the different areas.


We have many customers who really enjoy the health benefits of a spa, but for various reasons, just don’t feel comfortable using spas with lots of people. This has become even more apparent since Covid-19. There are still many vulnerable people who are nervous about mixing with others, so it is both reassuring and refreshing to not have to worry about being around anybody, other than the person/people in your spa group. The spa is thoroughly cleaned after each spa session and fully treated with fogging spray on all surfaces.


If you have booked for an all-day spa session which includes lunch, we will bring your lunch into the lounge area at an agreed time. We will only be coming into the lounge, so if you would prefer not to be present while we lay out your buffet, then please feel free to spend this time elsewhere in the spa, where you won’t be disturbed. You can then come in to the lounge to enjoy your lunch in private.

Refreshments are available in the lounge for you to help yourself to throughout your spa session, these include fruit juices, still and sparkling waters, coffee and tea. There are also biscuits and fruit. You are welcome to bring any alcohol or snacks with you.


If you have spa treatments booked, your therapist will open the doors of the treatment area into the lounge to call you in for your treatment. This is the only area of the spa that the therapist will enter and only if you have arranged for treatments. If you have no treatments booked, there will be no therapist on site.


Because there is nobody else in the spa, there are no rules around the use of phones or laptops. Photos can also be taken anywhere without worrying about other people.


Of course, with nobody else around, there are no rules around clothing. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible. Robes and spa slippers are provided, but what you choose to wear or not to wear is completely up to you… Ooh la la!!


How do I book?

You can check our availability for the next 12 weeks here Our weekends do get very booked up, so to check weekend availability or for booking further ahead, please contact us. Once you have agreed on your date and how many hours you would like (from 3 - 8 hours) and also how many people you are booking for (2 - 8 people), we will email confirmation of your booking. A 50% deposit is then payable to secure your booking. Your email confirmation also has directions to the spa and details of how to book your treatments and any extras.

Once you have paid for your spa session and any treatments or extras, there is nothing else to pay. Often a visit to a spa can be as expensive once you are there as it is to book. Here there is nothing else to spend money on, you are just here to relax and enjoy your spa time.
