Some of the treatments that we offer are not suitable for guests with certain medical ailments and conditions. Therefore we ask that you draw our attention to this prior to your arrival in the spa. We do offer specially designed treatments for guests living with or recovering from cancer and other serious conditions. Please allow the team to guide you in selecting which treatments are most suitable for you.
If you are having an individual treatment, we recommend that you arrive at The Spa at Carden reception at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow sufficient time to check-in, change into your robe, complete your individual consultation and allow our team to familiarise yourself with the spa. A late arrival may mean that the scheduled time is reduced or unable to be honoured. The cancellation policy will still apply.
What to Wear and Bring
Appropriate swimwear is obligatory within the wet area. Upon arrival we will provide you with a wristband for your own personal locker; within which you will find a robe, towel and a pair of flip-flops. Robes remain the property of the spa but the flip flops are yours to take away with you.
The wearing of robes is limited to the spa and spa gardens. Robes are fitted with a discreet security tag to prevent them being taken into the hotel.
Our ethos is around nature and well-being; to preserve the tranquillity of The Spa at Carden we request that all guests use silent mode on mobile phones and refrain from taking calls. Filming and photography is not permitted in the changing areas. Smoking and the use of electronic smoking devices are not permitted within any of the indoor or outdoor spa areas. It’s nice to catch up with friends but we do ask that when you are enjoying the relaxation rooms and treatment corridor that you keep your voice to a whisper.
Guests purchasing additional food and beverage will be asked for payment at the time of ordering. Dinner on residential packages is to be taken in Redmonds Restaurant; full details of your dinner allocation can be found in your confirmation.
Alcohol may be purchased and consumed around the spa. Please be aware that we operate a challenge 25 policy and should you be lucky enough to look younger please remember to bring proof of age to the spa when you visit.

We request that you show full consideration towards risks as well as your fellow guests and staff and refrain from excessive, noisy or disruptive behaviour. We reserve the right to refuse you alcohol and / access to facilities.
We are more than happy to plan and cater for dietary requirements as long as you give us adequate notice and in advance of your arrival.
