A Secret Spa Suite

Down the steps to Al Covo


Southampton's secret spa suite, discretely and simply presented with a wall sign 'al Covo' (which is Italian for 'the hidden place'), is open to clients by appointment only, for private sessions, between 9am and 6:30pm Monday to Friday.

The entrance is down steps from the front pavement of a Grade II townhouse at 7 Cranbury Place, Southampton, SO14 0LG. There is 2 hours free parking for visitors along the right hand side of the road, and the suite is 7 doors down from the top dead end of the road. Click here for a map and directions to al Covo.

In addition to the underfloor heated treatment and training room, there is an outdoor hot tub, WC and shower, relaxation room, kitchen, plus adequate storage for bikes and any luggage.

Attention to Detail...

A calming therapeutic atmosphere is maintained by attention to detail:

  • Privacy : The suite is private with an unmarked entrance, just saying 'al Covo', down steps from the road.
  • Hygiene : Fresh towels, robes and a clean modern shower and washroom. Steve has the highest personal hygiene standards.
  • Décor : Sumptuous Oriental silk and velvet tapestries, original flagstones, underfloor heating, designer bathroom and 1830's heritage, bring luxurious, calming character together with modern facilities.
  • Comfort : A choice of couches, chairs, pillows, and bolsters for you.
  • Lighting : Soft and discrete with candles for massage, or clean and bright for waxing.
  • Warmth : Steve's renowned warm strong hands, a steady heat from the floor, electric blankets and heated towels all keep the body warm.
  • Air : Well-ventilated and draught-free with a choice of oil scents or a summer breeze from the garden if preferred.
  • Music : Mobile phones are switched off, and relaxing music is played in the room. Enjoy streamed access to very many artists' tracks and albums.
