We invite you in 2022 to escape the everyday; as you relax and unwind in our quiet, spacious, luxurious and opulent spa. Transform your pampering journey as we unveil a sanctuary devoted to well-being.

As we draw closer to opening, we are delighted to announce our partnership with VOYA.

VOYA is a multi-award-winning spa brand boasting a certified organic status, a family ethos, and a tangible relationship with its core ingredient seaweed.

Built on passion, integrity and respect for the sea.

Every treatment and skincare product conceptualised and developed by Voya has been a carefully considered work of art. Authenticity, respect for the planet and the human connection at each and every stage of the creation process makes VOYA unique.

Our Thermal Suite has been carefully designed and created with you the guest in mind, your journey begins with:


Sooth tired and aching feet as you ease into our foot baths, feel the tension evaporate as you relax and unwind on the start of your spa journey with us.  


Soak up the healing heat that enables relief from muscle pain, stress and fatigue.


Offering the comforting feeling of serenity, the jacuzzi jets help ease knotted stressed muscles, whilst the combination of heat, massage and buoyancy helps clear your mind and help you to relax.


An ancient ritual, ice on the skin revitalises and tones tissues, re-activates circulation and strengthens the immune system. Wonderful to complete the ritual following a visit to the infra-red sauna or jacuzzi.


With pebbles from nearby Pollan Bay you are sure to feel as though you are walking along the Wild Atlantic Way. Feel the gentle trickle of water pass between your toes and tumble over your feet as you walk upon our River Walk experience.


Awaken your senses, as waters cascade down your body; alternating between smooth drops pattering down on you; to the drenching of a tropical rain storm. Soothing music and mood lighting will heighten your senses.


Made from cambala wood it hangs from the ceiling with icy cold water. According to tradition pouring ice cold water suddenly over the body causes such a thermal shock that it actually makes the body stronger. Wonderful to deliver a final burst of energy after a hot infra-red sauna. 

Additionally the Tess Rose Ocean Spa will provide:

  • Two large outdoor Canadian Spa Hot Tubs on our roof top garden (Included as Thermal Suite Visit)
  • Six treatment rooms
  • A relaxation lounge 
  • Seaweed baths
  • Hydro bath 

(More to follow)

Our Seaweed baths are ideal for friends or couples to indulge and unwind in. 

Our Hydro bath is located in a private room as are our Seaweed Baths.

Our two large outdoor Canadian spa hot tubs, located on our rooftop garden, allow you to breath in the fresh sea air from close by Pollan Bay as you relax and unwind.

We will offer a selection of Seaweed baths with our partners from Voya for you to choose from:




LAZY DAYS DETOX SEAWEED BATH                                                                45 MINUTES 

Submerge your body into a bath of organic, hand-harvested Atlantic seaweed (Fucus Serratus) to remove unwanted toxins and alleviate aches and pains. This bathing ritual is the simplest and purest of all organic treatments. With its organic status approved by the IOFGA. Lazy Days utilizes the natural power of organic hand-harvested seaweed to deeply moisturise the skin, increase circulation and promote healing. The renowned 'sailors cure'. 

ORGANIC WARMED SPICED MUD BATH                                                          45 MINUTES 

Peat baths were traditionally used for a variety of skin and rheumatic conditions. It offers a potent detoxification, due to its trace elements, vitamins, lipids, polyphenols and humic acids from Irish peat. Infused with organic seaweed extracts, it assists in reducing the appearance of cellulite and combats the signs of aging. This dark, deep relaxing bath can also soothe muscular aches and pains, relieve stress and fatigue, energize mind and soul.
