The Resurface programme takes place in Woolacombe Bay, where Britain’s ultimate beach meets the finest of North Devon hotels: The Woolacombe Bay Hotel. Timelessly elegant yet friendly and relaxed, the venue offers the perfect destination to escape from the hustle and bustle, explore the coast or simply relax and take in some of Devon’s most epic scenery.
With 60 uniquely inviting rooms, stylish suites and fabulous sea views, The Woolacombe Bay Hotel is a world apart when it comes to places to stay in North Devon. Exquisite food and drink, first class staff and facilities including their superb gym, spa and swimming pools are just some of the reasons guests rate Woolacombe Bay as one of the best luxury hotels Devon can offer.
The Resurface programme includes full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) sharing in a twin room at the hotel. We encourage participants to share rooms as part of the healing process. We hope that you will generate new connections, a sense of community and an opportunity to process the day’s events with someone on a more private level.
