A relaxing Spa break in marvellous surroundings
If you've got a stressful job or lifestyle and need a get-away-from-it-all break to kick back, relax and soothe your troubles away, then Mallorca's got a great choice of Spa hotels which are the perfect balm for your hectic life. While we've been writing about salt and Es Trenc this week, it reminded me of the nearby Fontsanta Hotel Thermal & Spa which actually has views of the salt hills and sea at Es Trenc from its terrace.
It's a Five Star luxury hotel, adults only, and a sister hotel of Convent de la Missio in Palma, home of the Michelin starred Simply Fosh Restaurant. A sympathetically restored 18th century building, it oozes class, relaxation and style from its every pore.
Everything about the place is calming; the décor – cool, spacious, unobtrusive, modern yet at one with the sandstone buildings and lush green surroundings. As you'd expect, there are a variety of rooms from doubles up to duplex suites with terrace which all have everything we need for a relaxing stay.
Let's get to the Spa – it's the only one in the Balearic Islands which has thermal waters with subterranean origins. As the water rises from under the ground it acquires mineral elements – chlorine, sodium, magnesium, calcium, sulphur, fluorine, and potassium – which stimulate the skin and improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and have been declared fit for public use since 1869.
The spa facilities include the thermal waters in a pool, Jacuzzi, and baths along with a steam room, Sauna with a view and relaxation room. The hotel currently charges €85 for a morning's relaxation in the Fontsanta spa consisting of;
Thermal circuit with use of the thermal water pool, Vapoarium (thermal steam sauna), dry sauna, steam room, shower of sensations, bucket shower and ice fountain.
• Thermal Bath, water immersion mineromedical, single bath or double bath available.
• Refreshment area with a buffet of fruits and flavoured waters.
• Bathrobe, slippers and lockers are included.
• Relaxing area with waterbeds.
• Lunch in our restaurant (Beverages are not included)
which sounds just fabulous. I'm already de-stressing just thinking about this, how about you? If you fancy a break there, just click the link for more info and to book online.
