We are delighted to announce that our hotel will be open again on 10th July, but due to government guidance our spa will remain closed for the time being. Spa members – please don’t worry about your membership fees or direct debits. All fees will automatically be frozen until we reopen again.



Bluewater Spa

Named after its magnificent azure blue swimming pool, Bluewater Spa is the perfect place to escape life’s stresses and unwind with a luxurious treatment. A mobile-free zone, our Bournemouth spa is designed with relaxation in mind, and that’s exactly how you’ll feel following a visit. The spa facilities include an 18m indoor swimming pool, four spa treatment rooms, steam room and sauna, fully equipped gym and a relaxation lounge.

As well as being FREE for all hotel guests during their stay, our Bournemouth hotel with spa also offers a spa and gym membership for local residents. The Connaught Hotel and Spa is just a five minute walk from Bournemouth town centre and a few minutes from the beach.

We do have a lift to take you down to the spa, but unfortunately the spa area isn’t suitable for wheelchairs.

Am I able to exclusively hire out the pool for an event?

Unfortunately this isn’t something that we’re able to accommodate as we give our Bluewater Spa members access to the pool during all opening hours.

When should I arrive for my spa treatment?

We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your treatment, so that you can relax and fill out your consultation card. We’d hate to rush you! Late arrival will result in your treatment time being reduced.

What should I wear during my treatment?

We recommend wearing swimwear to your spa treatment.

Is the gym air-conditioned?


Do I need to bring my own towels to the swimming pool/gym?

If you are a guest, we will provide a towel. Bluewater Spa members should bring their own towels.

Yes, see our spa and gym membership packages and prices.

Do you offer an off-peak membership package?

Yes, see our spa and gym membership packages and prices.

You’ll need to book first, please get in touch via our online enquiry form or by calling Bluewater Spa on 01202 209104.

Can I get membership just for the gym (excluding the spa)?

Unfortunately this isn’t possible, all of our membership packages are for both the spa and gym.

Do I have to book a day pass in advance or can I just turn up?

A day pass can be booked on the day. We recommend calling us before travelling on 01202 209104 to check whether we have capacity to fit you in that day.

Are there lockers available in your spa/gym?

Yes, we have plenty of lockers (you will need a pound coin for these, which gets returned).

Are you able to arrange a bottle of wine / prosecco / champagne for us to drink in the spa?

Unfortunately this isn’t possible as we don’t allow any glass within the spa area.

When can I visit you to view the facilities?

Please feel free to pop in any day between 9:30am and 6:30pm and we can show you around.
