The Headland’s new Aqua Club scooped a brace of accolades at the recent national UK Pool & Spa Awards.

The winners were announced during a virtual presentation that attracted over 2,000 on-line votes and votes from judges, before being scrutinised by an independent jury.

The new £10 million development at the five-star Newquay hotel was voted both Health & Wellness Project of the Year as well as Commercial Pool Project of the Year.

The Aqua Club features six pools, a sun terrace with ocean views, and new restaurant named The Deck.

The building was designed by Truro-based architect Lilly Lewarne, the complex of pools by Aqua Platinum, and it combines a 25-metre pool, a hydrotherapy pool and a children’s splash pool in an undercover inside area. Matt Hulme, Dynargh Design, helped with the interiors.

“We were delighted the Aqua Club was recognised twice in these prestigious annual awards,” said Director and co-owner Carolyn Armstrong.
