Spa is an abbreviation of the Latin term Sanus per Aquam, which means Health through Water.
Thalassotherapy is a therapeutic method for curative and preventative purposes, based on the use of seawater. The body absorbs its properties which include mineral salts and dietary elements due to the fact that the water is heated between 34º and 37ºC.
At Real Spa Therapy we offer bathing, wraps and massages, all based on the pressure and temperature of seawater.
The duration times can be consulted in the Spa catalogue. See treatments

Both the sauna and Turkish bath have beneficial effects, although they should be used in moderation. The appropriate time of use varies according to the intended objective. For example, if you intend to warm and relax your muscles, a sauna time of around 12 to 15 minutes is recommended. The steam of the Turkish bath help to open skin pores and boost the respiratory system. For this, we recommend 5 to 6 minutes.
In order to get the most benefit possible, we recommend that you arrive 45 minutes in advance of the scheduled time to start the treatment. In this way, you should have sufficient time to change clothes, enjoy the sauna, Turkish bath and/or simply relax and take a shower. If you decide to use these facilities after the treatment, we recommend that you arrive 15 minutes in advance of the scheduled time.
For greater comfort and relaxation, we recommend a sauna and Turkish bath session to warm your muscles and prepare you for the treatment, and/or use of the showers.
For men, in the case of facial treatments, we recommend that you shave at least 2 hours before the scheduled time of the treatment, so as to ensure maximum comfort and benefit for your skin.
It is not necessary to take or wear specific clothing, since the Spa places robes, towels and slippers at your disposal. If you are a hotel guest, you can bring the ones provided in your room. You will be given a locker so keep your personal objects.
When using the gym, appropriate clothing and footwear should be used. For the jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath, we recommend the use of a bathing suit and in the Thalassotherapy Circuit / indoor swimming pool, it is compulsory to use a bathing suit and cap. All of these items can be acquired at the reception of Real Spa Therapy.
All the lockers have a padlock. However, if you prefer, we suggest that you leave your personal articles in the safe of your room, or in one of the safes available in the hotel reception.
In order to preserve the calm atmosphere, please turn your mobile phone off and likewise any other electronic equipment.
Tell us about your expectations so that we can assure a completely personalised experience according to your needs.
In order to make your experience even more special, please tell the therapist about your preferences, whether regarding the room temperature or level of pressure used in the massage. You can also inform us whether you prefer a female or male therapist. However, please note that both have specialised training in order to offer you a service of the very highest standard, and constant concern with the client's well-being.
After our treatments, we invite our guests to relax calmly on the massage bed for a few minutes, enjoying the peace and joy of the experience. You can also relax in the hotel gardens or use the sauna and Turkish bath. Avoid entering the swimming pool after your massage because the chlorine will remove the oils that have just been carefully applied to your skin.
