We are very excited to announce that following on from our beautiful hotel refurbishment early last year, Fowey Hall will now be embarking on a spa refurbishment plan from Monday 6th September 2021 until approx. Easter time 2022. During this time, there will be extensive work on the decking area, changing facilities and bathrooms. The past 18 months has been particularly difficult for hospitality, and we have been so very pleased to see our members return to us when we finally re-opened in May. The planned works taking place will, unfortunately, mean that memberships with us will need to be paused from Monday 6th September until the facilities are able to re-open again next year.
The team and I cannot wait to welcome you all back to the spa when the renovation works are complete and show you the hard work that has gone into the refurbishment. I’m sure you will all be very happy with the results”.
