Sail Lofts opens new spa


Sail Lofts holiday rental accommodation in St Ives is expanding its offering this month with the launch of the Sail Lofts Ocean Spa.

The Spa, which opens on the harbour-front on Saturday June 19, will be offering an array of organic spa treatments created by award-winning Cornish skincare brand Spiezia Organics, including 25 and 60 minute warm-up or cool-down massage sessions specifically designed for surfers of all ages and standards.

According to Sail Lofts owner Philip Griffiths, the spa is the logical addition to the apartments, which opened next to Porthmeor Beach two years ago. He said: “Many of our visitors are keen surfers or they want to learn. So along with all the usual spa treatments that people might wish for, we wanted to offer surfers a way to wind up to or cool down from all that physical exertion.

“Like the Sail Lofts, we wanted our spa to be as sustainable and ethical as possible – as well as being just as luxurious. So it seems absolutely right that we’re collaborating with Spiezia Organics, whose products are made at Gear Farm just over 20 miles away on the Lizard Peninsula.”

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to work with a like-minded Cornwall-based brand,” added Spiezia director Amanda Barlow, whose outlets for Spiezia Organics include Harvey Nichols stores throughout the UK, as well as being distributed globally.

“We’ve devised a really interesting and innovative range of treatments for the Sail Lofts Ocean Spa fusing Eastern and Western massage. In addition we will be launching a unique signature treatment – the Ocean Spa Sensation which will be exclusive to Sail Lofts Ocean Spa.”
