* Our schedule is pretty full for the week and what an experience this will be. We are keeping our launch prices super low in 2017 as a great incentive to sign up, however we want you to be aware that Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa is expanding to open a new, dedicated Wellness centre in 2018 with a final phase of suites. So, whilst there will be a little construction going (most major work is now nearing completion), this won't impact our schedule at all. WeTrainWhereWeWant is our motto - a little progressive construction won't get in our way!
