Experts use a variety of Thalassotherapy techniques including products from the innovative Phytomer® line to improve physical and mental health. The unique products comprising freeze-dried algae and sea water – which retain all their natural properties – can be purchased from the Spa so you can continue treatments at home. Equipped with four cabins for massage and therapies, the Spa also includes a Turkish bath, hydromassage tubs and aromatic showers, a solarium, gym area and hair salon upon request.
Signature treatment: The spa uses Thalassotherapy as the basis for its treatments. Deriving from the Greek word for ‘sea’, the term refers to a variety of body treatments using seawater and seaweed, each designed to tone, moisturize, revitalize the skin and improve circulation. Leader in the marine cosmetics field, Phytomer® has harnessed the remineralizing and detoxifying active ingredients of marine extracts and seaweeds in its products, all of which are used by therapists at the Spa. Try the Reflexothermal Method, a patented technique using warmth, touch and natural marine agents to help eliminate tension and stimulate reactivity in various areas of the body.
