The Headland Hotel Health Spa,
Newquay Cornwall


The Headland Hotel is a 4 star AA and RAC luxury hotel in Newquay, Cornwall. It is one of the most iconic hotels in Cornwall situated on the headland overlooking Fistral Bay. 

The health suite was built in two phases, with Phase One of the project comprising the construction of the new swimming pool, changing rooms, a sauna, a steam room and a Jacuzzi. Work on the first phase commenced in September 2011 and reached completion in June 2012.

Phase Two comprised the construction of seven spa treatment rooms, a reception area and a hair and beauty room. The second phase began in October 2012 and reached completion in December 2013. The hotel remained open throughout the work on both phases.

Chartered architects, Lilly Lewarne Practice (LLP) were contracted to provide the design and oversee the new leisure facilities at The Headland, whilst J E Stacey & Co was appointed as the main contractor on the scheme. 

The project involved creating a new basement-level extension to the front of the building and the installation of rooms to provide the new health suite. As the hotel remained open throughout the construction programme, we had to ensure as little disruption to guests as possible, so a large amount of the work was conducted by hand.

“There was a great deal of structural works undertaken at the lower ground floor level, so a number of engineering interventions were implemented in order to ensure the hotel could remain operational at all times. J E Stacy & Co were very flexible in their approach to the work and they planned the programme accordingly. J E Stacy & Co knew exactly when they needed to conduct the more disruptive work and throughout the entire project they liaised with hotel management to keep the works as low key as possible.”

The new swimming pool includes jet stream and bubble seats and has been such a successful addition to the hotel that it has picked up a couple of awards, including an accolade at the South West LABC Awards. The new leisure facilities were awarded Best Small Commercial Building, for building excellence in the delivery of outstanding construction and workmanship and are a fantastic addition to the hotel.
