The Floatation Sanctuary in central New Plymouth, is New Zealand’s premier float centre where you’ll find state-of-the-art float pods, an open float pool (for anyone concerned about feeling enclosed), and additional services of Normatec Compression, Oxygen Bar, and Infrared Sauna (available in combination or individually) to help you relax, reset and rejuvenate your body and mind. Floatation Therapy is our primary service.

The Floatation Sanctuary design and construction provides an environment to optimize guests float experience. With careful attention to effective acoustic control between rooms, and highly efficient ventilation systems that continually filter and change the air within the rooms, optimal room temperate and humidity is maintained.

Featuring FloatSpa premium technology, The Floatation Sanctuary is the only float centre in Australasia to offer this sophisticated filtration system which enables 100% removal of water from the pod/pool between every client. This guarantees every drop of water is filtered (at least twice as a minimum) between floats and allows staff to fully clean and disinfect the interior of the pod each time to ensure the highest standards in hygiene. The lighting design throughout the centre creates an ambiance to take clients on a journey away from the busyness of every day life to a place of calmness & tranquility.

Two rooms have FloatSpa pods (spacious yet embryonic, with internal length of 2.3m and width 1.6m), and one room has the FloatSpa premium open float pool (the size of a Super King Size bed) which is perfect for couples floating or individuals needing extra space. The open pool is a private space with no lid, so guests can enjoy the benefits of floating without any sense of feeling confined. All 3 float rooms are private, and have options to personalise guests float experience. Each room has their own toilet and shower facilities. A selection of relaxation music is available, and together with soft lighting accompany float guests for the first 5 mins before fading away, and then fade back in for the last 5 minutes to let guests know when their float time is finishing. Options for float times range from 30mins to 3hrs to cater for individual needs.

The water is maintained at relaxed skin temperature (around 35C), making it safe for pregnant mums and ideal for helping the body detoxify.

Anyone new to floating is provided with a personalised briefing by staff to introduce the process of floating and to answer any questions before being shown to their float room. Earplugs are provided, also luxurious spa towels, natural skincare and hair products, and Dyson hairdryers are available for all guests to use.

When guests are finished, they are welcome to relax with a complimentary herbal tea or filtered water in our post float lounge before heading back into the world.
