About

Soak Seaweed bathhouse Spa is situated in the beautiful County Down seaside town of Newcastle on the extremely pretty South Promenade.

SOAK is best known for its multi award winning Seaweed Bath treatment. There are an array of holistic treatments on offer also.

During your visit to SOAK you will be allocated a private bathroom. This will be equipped with a Victorian roll top bath that will be prepared for you with hot seawater and Seaweed. You will also have the choice of a bathroom with a hand crafted Victorian style wooden steam cabinet or the more modern steam shower enclosure. There is also a fresh water jet spa shower in each bathroom. Fresh seaweed is used for every bath and towels will be provided.

Each bathroom is individually wired for sound so if you bring along a CD and give it to us in the reception, you can enjoy your soak whilst listening to your favourite tunes.

Seaweed Baths are well known to offer some fantastic health and beauty benefits, but the fun and enjoyment they offer are a not so well known fact. SOAK the only authentic Bathhouse of its kind in the UK and the East coast of Ireland is here to change all that.

Seaweed bathing has enriched the lives of the people on this island for more than a century. In Victorian times hot seawater baths were all the rage. Farmers along the coast who used seaweed for fertiliser found handling the weed brought relief from hacks and other sores. At some point someone put two and two together and got MAGIC.

We have six single seaweed bathing rooms which can be shared (usually by couples) if desired and we have one double room (two baths).

• Sessions last for one hour.
• Towels and hair drying facilities are provided.
• Bring your favourite CD or choose one from our selection.
• Fresh seaweed is used for every bath.
• Groups can be catered for.
• Natural seaweed products available
