While there are many five-star resorts dedicated to wellness, did you know some of Europe’s most luxurious hotels also offer world-class spas too? 

Whether you’re looking for a quick pampering session, a tailored programme or a one-of-a-kind wellness experience, we’ve put together a list of four hotels that absolutely nail it. 

Each hotel spa has been carefully selected based on its unique and innovative offerings that bring something a little different to the table than an average spa. 

And with beautiful locations, decadent facilities and pure comfort to match, they’re the perfect retreats to transform your mind and body in style. 

If a European spa break is just what you’re looking for, call our expert travel managers to make that dream a reality. 

Serenity Spa at Pine Cliffs, Portugal

Set back from the clifftops of the sun-burnished cliffs of the Algarve, Pine Cliffs is an award-winning family resort known for its fantastic golf course. What you might not know is its spa is also an award-winner. Plus, it’s the first spa in Portugal to incorporate CBD into its treatments. 

Here at Serenity – the Art of Wellbeing, you’ll find innovative treatments that include ingredients based on its natural surroundings such as sand and sea salt. 

Expert therapists are on hand to help you find a treatment that enhances your mind and body whether that’s massages, facials, yoga or retreats. 

Facilities include a thermal oasis which has a whole menu of hydro based experiences such as an ice fountain, herbal sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi. 

If that wasn’t enough, there are also specialised treatment packages for couples, brides & bridesmaids, honeymooners, grooms & groomsmen and juniors & mothers-to-be. 

Why not try… a CBD Gold Age Restore Facial. Offering the first CBD treatments in Portugal, Serenity Spa’s unique facial treatment combines CBD’s anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing effects with Nerve Point Therapy and Polarity Balancing.

Thalasso Spa at Marbella Club Hotel, Spain

Perfectly positioned on the Golden Mile in Málaga, Marbella Club Hotel is a well-known beachfront Mediterranean paradise bursting with Andalusian charm. 

It’s an ideal retreat for families, friends and couples wanting to experience the sweet life. A kids’ club, golf course, equestrian centre and the finest restaurants in Marbella make that happen. That aside, no stay is complete without venturing inside the hotel’s Thalasso Spa. 

Based on the practice of thalassotherapy, a treatment used by the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians, the spa harnesses the healing power of the mineral rich Mediterranean seawater to restore and energise your mind and body. All therapies are enhanced by modern and advanced science-based techniques to ensure you get the most out of each experience. 

Discover thalassotherapy in the spa’s seawater pool with underwater pressure jets, swan neck fountains and Jacuzzi beds. There’s also a whole menu of massages, facials, rituals and seaweed wraps to help soothe, revitalise and relieve tension. You’ll never want to leave. 

Why not try… a Bath with Underwater Massage. This treatment combines the benefits of a bath with an intensive underwater massage, involving a jet directed by your therapist. It’s designed to enhance relaxation, release muscle tension and help with dispersing cellulite.

Add a dose of liquid magnesium to your bath to boost your immune system.
