When the Yeatman Hotel in Porto won the award for Best Hotel Spa of 2013, the Relais & Châteaux hotel decided to celebrate its new title with even more spa luxury.
The hotel, which is known for its Caudalie Vinothérapie® wine-based treatments, is proud to now offer guests the Ultimate Spa Experience.
The experience offers guests a six-night stay at the Porto, Portugal, based hotel that includes a choice of one of two intensive, five-day spa programs. Guests may choose from the Body of Your Dreams Cure and the Caudalie Exceptional Cure, which both include four treatments per day. Each morning begins with a wine barrel bath—red wine for its slimming properties or grape seed extract for its calming qualities. The treatments continue with an exfoliation, a body wrap and a massage or facial, all centered on the spa’s Caudalie Vinothérapie® techniques.
When guests are not receiving a moisturizing honey and wine wrap or a crushed cabernet scrub, they are welcome to explore the hotel’s gymnasium, the general spa area or the resort’s panoramic indoor and outdoor pools.
The package also comes complete with access to a buffet-style breakfast served in the Orangerie room and Caudalie Tea room service at all times, as well as a spa menu, exclusively designed for the Ultimate Spa Experience. The menu, created by hotel chef Ricardo Costa, offers specialty menu items to guests delivered directly to the spa during regular hours or to guests’ rooms.
Package prices run from about $752 during low season and about $831 during high season and include accommodation in a Superior Room with terrace and panoramic views.
