In a world filled with stress, pressure, cynicism and unhealthy foods, many are looking for ways to improve their minds and bodies. One place claiming to be able to do this is Majorca, and in this feature, we’ll be highlighting how it can do it.
Internationally recognised for its health and beauty treatments, Majorca has established itself as a wellness destination and an ‘island of serenity’. The island has cutting-edge facilities and services set in an idyllic natural environment and more traditional treatments such as Roman, Greek and Arab baths dating back centuries. Today, Majorca has inherited wellness therapies in its spas through thalassotherapy, thermal, classic and innovative treatments to help revive body and soul.
Spas & Spa Therapies
Visitors can find wellness in thermal, beauty and thalassotherapy spas, All of which ensure a unique and unforgettable experience of physical and mental well-being. The wide variety of hotel spas and professional wellness institutes across the island makes the destination stand out.
In Majorca’s spas, visitors can enjoy aesthetic and relaxation treatments, with freshwater being a key element, to which natural ingredients are usually added to maximise the effects. Some spas offer packages where accommodation is included if treatments are the main reason for holidaying on the island.
Another option is to enjoy the mineral-medicinal waters of the spa that is located in the municipality of Campos at the Fontsanta Hotel Thermal Spa & Wellness. Medical professionals run this facility; the spring water with its sodium chlorine, and other healing minerals have for centuries been used for therapeutic conditions, such as the treatment of rheumatism, osteoarthritis or arthritis.
