About Acacia Beauty Rooms


Close the door on the outside world, escape and replenish your physical and mental self. Modern day life causes stress and tension and affects your well being. Aside from allowing you to be pampered and indulged, beauty treatments enhance your looks and have a major effect on your health.

Break away from everyday life for an hour, a day or a weekend. Acacia Beauty Rooms has the added advantage of being situated in the beautiful grounds of Pontlands Park Hotel; with indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and Reflections Café Bar, serving a varied selection of food and beverages, we can cater for all your needs. In the summer months an outdoor, heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and landscaped patio are also available for your enjoyment.

Put your life on hold and come and be pampered; warm, comfortable, fresh, clean rooms, dimmed lights, soothing music, and an array of aroma therapy oils. Using only treatments and products of the highest quality, Sarah and her staff make use of an extensive range of beauty and holistic treatments.
