  • Back to results
We like Aveda products and treatments, they are generally very results focused and so worth the money you spend on them. To have an Aveda salon in the heart of Cork city is a real coup for the Imperial. Guests can reflect, de-stress, and rebalance in this oasis of relaxation.

Escape Spa aims to deliver a unique and customised experience for each guest based on their lifestyle and personality and the experienced therapists are highly trained. After your Aveda treatment you can release all tension in the Vitality Suite with its tropical, rain and mist showers, the Aroma and Salt Grottos, and the unique Evian Hydrotherapy Pool. Finish up in The Relaxation Suite with soft music and muted lighting, a place to restore your inner peace. Finally, the stylists in the hair salon will ensure that your outer peace is rebalanced - no such thing as a post treatment bad hair day here - so you can emerge ready to paint the town red.
