Our plans are exciting and ambitious.
The new St Michaels Spa Resort, with an estimated cost of £30 million, will make this project the largest investment in tourism related infrastructure in Cornwall for over a decade. The new St Michaels Spa Resort will dramatically improve the existing facilities further and create a spectacular, iconic, new building on the sea front.
The vision for the whole resort is anchored around a major investment in new spa, health and wellness facilities across the site, and a major upgrading of the facilities. St Michaels Spa will become dedicated to treatments and relaxation with 7 new treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pools, new steam and sauna cabins, relaxation areas in an extended pool conservatory, spa gardens and spa café. St Michaels Health Club will relocate to an extended and expanded facility created from major development and expansion of the former Falmouth Beach Club. There will be two gyms, two fitness studios, the large 16m pool, plus an array of other facilities.
The new resort will be reached from a new entrance opposite Gyllyngvase Beach. The new St Michaels Hotel will have a new reception and arrival lounge, a new function suite for up to 250 people, around 90 bedrooms and suites. It will be 4 star deluxe with a huge investment in upscaling the property. Adjacent to the new spa will be four eco lodges for those on exclusive spa breaks.
The “Liner Building” will feature some spectacular iconic architecture which alludes to an ocean-going liner and reflects Falmouth’s “Spirit of the Sea” marketing strategy. The building will include 56 ocean facing apartments, which will be sold and then managed by St Michaels as serviced/holiday apartments when owners are not occupying. Opposite the beach will be a prestigious new bar and restaurant as well as a local deli and shop.
The next stage will involve more detailed design development and then discussions regarding the financing of the scheme. It is hoped that works will be able to commence in November this year.
