Whatever the weather, your IOW holiday has something for everyone…
But of course, although the Island has better weather than most mainland destinations, this is still Britain and yes, it does occasionally rain! For such occasions (and even for the depths of Winter) our own Indoor Leisure Complex can be relied upon to make your stay a success whatever the weather – indeed some of our guests hardly venture out even when the sun shines!
The OASIS @ the WIGHT is open to both accommodation residents and those who live in the locality. Our experienced therapists offer a full range of treatments to both female and male clients. When coupled with our other excellent facilities – indoor swimming pool (30C/85F) sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, we have everything that is normally with a spa at a much more reasonable cost.
