THE award-winning Camelot Spa San Lameer, the only true spa on the South Coast, brings together all the virtues of water therapy, traditional beauty treatments and specialised wellness treatments in one place to create complete serenity and calm to address a very real need for relaxation and recuperation from stress in todayand#039;s society.

If you choose your spa correctly, a visit will enable you to recharge your batteries, attend to your well-being and get your mind body and soul back in shape. This is achieved in an environment that is conducive to relaxation and the skills of correctly trained therapists who know and understand the anatomy and the treatments that they offer enabling them to help heal the body and ease the mind.

Camelot Spa San Lameer uses a combination of water, steam and treatments taking advantage of the beneficial effects of hot steam on the skin and lungs that have been recognised since antiquity, to enhance the effectiveness of the treatments.

This spa has the only Rasul chamber in the country which includes a built-in cold pool and twinkling LED lights. The humid heat (steam) results in the easy flow of perspiration from the pores of the skin, leaving skin cleansed and soft and the body to detox. The mineral mud you apply to your skin stimulates the circulation and detoxifies the skin. As the temperature of the body begins to rise, the blood vessels dilate, which means the heart doesnand#039;t need to work as hard to pump the blood around and the muscles relax. The brief period during which the body temperature is raised increases resistance and the excessive perspiration which ensues helps to detoxify the body. A dip in the cold pool in the Rasul chamber after the steam contracts the blood vessels and increase the blood flow pumping oxygen into the heart, lungs and brain. You will feel energised, the joints loosen up and become more supple making the body is more receptive to other treatments.

The floatation pool has music playing from underneath the water and flickering candles allowing your body to enjoy the ultimate relaxation while your mind can meditate. It is said that 20 minutes in this pool has the equivalent benefit of six hours sleep.

The spa also has two hydrobaths in which the water provides a sensory experience with jets of water massaging the surface of the skin while you relax plus a multi-jet shower energises and enables clients to easily wash off the wraps and scrubs. After your treatments you are taken to a relaxation area with a magnificent view of the lagoon, soft music to enhance the relaxation and homemade biscuitand#039;s to satisfy the taste buds.

We invite you to partake in the professionalism and dedication at Camelot Spa where each therapist places their heart and soul in every treatment, offering and#034;pure escape for body, mind and souland#034;.
