The Cove Resort
Southport, UK
Hydrotherapy meets Surf Therapy

Located on England’s northwest coast in Southport, just 17 miles north of Liverpool, The Cove Resort will be a key leisure and hospitality venue for the region. The resort’s focus will be on health and wellbeing and will consist of a ‘leisure beach’, thermal spa, and hotel. The leisure beach will include a world-class lagoon producing perfect surf conditions on demand as well as many other activities.

The coastal town of Southport has a long and rich history of seaside recreation, recovery, and hydrotherapy, dating back to its formation in the 18th Century, and indeed the town’s own coat of arms is emblazoned with the motto, ‘Salus Populi’ meaning ‘Health and Wellbeing of the People’.

At the heart of this project is a desire to embrace the town’s historical identity and be a key component in its renaissance as a grand destination for health and wellbeing.
