What are the wet areas like at The Spa at Barnsley Resort?

Answers from Our Experts (2)

There are three wet areas at The Spa at Barnsley Resort, including the pool, whirlpool and steam and sauna room. The outdoor saltwater pool is large and shallow —with depths between three and five feet — and overlooks the 10th tee. (Swimmers beware: The pool is unheated even in brisk winter months.) The coed whirlpool space is a small room overlooking the golf course and tennis courts at the Forbes Travel Guide recommended Barnsley Resort, with taupe floor tiles that lead into white painted baseboards and caramel-colored wood paneling on the walls. At about the size of a king-size bed, the small whirlpool, set into the tiled floor, gets the job done with perfect temperatures and powerful jets. Just inside the door to the men’s or women’s locker rooms, the wet area comprises one shower, a sauna and a steam room. The cedar-lined sauna has two graduated benches, each about five feet long, along one wall, with a bucket filled with water and a ladle for pouring on heated rocks. The steam room, which is about the same size, has two rows of tiled benches and is lightly scented with eucalyptus.

The wet areas at The Spa at Barnsley Resort include a six-person coed whirlpool that is heated to a steamy 104F (with a 15-minute jet setting). It features a beautiful tile pattern. There are also steam rooms and saunas in both our men’s and women’s locker rooms, and each will comfortably seat four adults. Our steam rooms are filled with the light fragrance of eucalyptus.
