Dating back over 300 years, seaweed baths were Ireland's only indigenous therapy and were traditionally seen as ‘the sailor’scure’. Seaweed has been harvested by hand in Sligo on the West Coast of Ireland for over 150 years. K Spa uses a range of Voya products which are made from seaweed hand picked from these shores.
The K Club is in many ways intrinsically linked to the West Coast through the expressionist painter, Jack B. Yeats who hailed from Sligo. His work hangs in the Yeat’s Room, a room dedicated to the painter and coincidently one of his paintings on display in the hotel depicts the beach at Strandhill, Sligo where this seaweed is harvested from. This is a very elegant room and is just the place to enjoy lunch or afternoon tea before or following a treatment in our Spa.
The Wellness Suite
The Wellness Suite incorporates a range of water based, sensory activities and is based on the ritual of bathing. Heating and cooling the body through a series of water treatments results in deep cleansing and rejuvenation. The Wellness Suite incorporates four distinct wet treatments which can be used alone or as a combination (The Wellness Path) for wellness results you can really feel.
The Wellness Path – 2 hrs €100
Begin the wellness path with an exfoliating Hamam in order to exfoliate and polish the skin, next enjoy our Rasul Chamber and finish up with either a Hydrobath or a Vichy Shower. Guests can also use the swimming pool, outdoor hot tub, experience showers and deep relaxation room in between each element. Your body will be thoroughly exfoliated and invigorated. The Wellness Path is particularly enjoyable to experience before a massage, wrap or body treatment.
