Fabulous yoga teachers who treat everyone as an individual, staff who know you, great selection of treatments. As soon as you walk down the steps and enter reception it is like entering an oasis of calm.

Had my first float experience this week and it absolutely blew me away. Lovely calming atmosphere in reception and very private rooms where your personal float pod is. Sorbet and tea when you are finished.
