Mediterranean-inspired treatments

Our Thalasso treatments draw on the very essence of the Mediterranean to offer unique treatments combining the beneficial properties of seawater with wellness expertise. Mineral-rich Mediterranean seaweed-wraps detoxify and regenerate the skin, while heated seawater baths harness negative ions to soothe the body and clear the mind.

Underwater massages, performed in water enriched with sea salt, promote deep muscle relaxation and help to reduce joint pain. This practice also improves blood circulation, which is essential for optimal health. Hydrotherapy treatments, using water jets and gentle waves, stimulate the skin and the lymphatic system, eliminating toxins and promoting a feeling of weightlessness.

These treatments, inspired by the bountiful nature of the Mediterranean, are specially designed to revitalize the body and soothe the mind, offering an escape from everyday stress. By immersing themselves in these Thalasso treatments, our guests give themselves a well-deserved break while reconnecting with calm and a feeling of harmony.
