Thermal and Spas

Every leisure and business travel should include a bit of pampering in order, don’t you think?! If rejuvenation of body and mind is paramount to you, splash out and head to Portugal for the perfect relaxing spa retreat.

Spas began when people started soaking themselves in hot springs thousands of years ago and Portugal is no less renowned for preserving and developing such tradition to another level, with an unparallel offer of high quality spa facilities (including steam and hydro baths, toning pools, massage jets and beds) and treatments – like facials, body massages, hot stone therapy, marine extract wraps and even chocolate therapy! What a fantastic way to detox! For the ultimate in self-indulgence have your cares pummelled away in unparalleled spa spots in Portugal offering every imaginable well-being health and beauty treatment to help you recharge your batteries and relax, such as the traditional thermal baths of Vidago, Curia, Furnas, Monfortinho and Monchique just to name a few. Be pampered with divine treatments carried out by expert therapists who leave you to drift off to sleep in a fluffy robe on a massaging chair afterwards.

If you’re at the luxury end hotel wise, immerse yourself in holistically-minded treatments like Vichy Shower, Reiki and reflexology using natural and organic products in exclusive wellness hotels, or enjoy the tranquillity of an afternoon of Tai chi in serene spa gardens or a splendid indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool overlooking the sea at Vila Lara Thalassa resort or Praia d’El Rey. Choose serenity by day and, if you wish, be decadently glamorous by night.

Absolutely Portugal will make the rejuvenating waters work their magic especially for you.
