A newly opened day spa in Cornwall, UK, has made offering non-toxic treatments to cancer sufferers one of its USPs.

The Eyles family, owners of the Crantock Bay leisure development near Newquay, opened the 72sq m (775sq ft) spa on 29 June.

Featuring three treatment rooms, the spa is the latest stage in the ongoing project to transform the former Crantock Bay Hotel into luxury, self-catering apartments and supporting leisure facilities.

According to Nina Eyles, co-owner of Crantock Bay, the boutique spa will focus on offering a local, Cornish experience.

Designed by Newquay-based Whitrow Design, the spa will use Made For Life by Spiezia products in its treatments – with every product made by hand in Cornwall using organic herbs, flowers and oils.

Eyles adds that a key USP will be to offer spa services for cancer sufferers. “We will offer treatments for those going through cancer,” she said.

“Many spas have to turn people away if they are going through the illness, but the therapists who are trained in the accredited ‘Cancer Touch Therapy’, can offer holistic treatments, organic makeovers, nutritional advice and ‘a lot of love and hugs’.”

“Made for Life products are also suitable for expectant mothers, babies and those who suffer from problems such as eczema and arthritis.”

The Eyles family first acquired the Crantock Bay hotel in 1951 and the current owners are the third generation of the family to operate the property.

The development now houses a selection of high-end, short-stay apartments ranging from two to four-bedroom properties, an on-site restaurant and a leisure and health club with a heated indoor swimming pool.

The spa will be open to guests staying in the holiday apartments as well as non-guests.
