SPA Facilities

We get it. You want to relax, forget about your work and leave your worries behind (at least for a day or two). Well Parklands is the perfect place to do just that because after 6pm our SPA facilities are open to adults only. Here you can enjoy our aroma steam room, Swedish sauna, hot stone beds, bio sauna, hydro pool and neck massagers in a quiet and childfree environment to really allow you to unwind.

Swimming Pool

Looking for something slightly more active? Brought the kids? Why not visit the pool? During the day we split the pool into 2 sections: one dedicated to lengths, the other dedicated to children and families. Every Saturday kids get priority of the pool from 5pm as we get out the big floats until 9pm. Definitely one way to keep them amused!


If you are a gym bunny and love to keep track even when away from home, we have a fully equipped gym open to all residents that allows you to train in accordance with your personal needs. So if you fancy that burger or beer in the bar then go for it. You can just work it off later!
