You could be forgiven for thinking you have wandered into Marrakesh when you enter the spa at Mauricia. Designed with Middle Eastern influences, the tall palms overlook a glistening pool encircled with loungers for relaxation after a treatment. Enter the cool interior and indulge in a soothing massage while the exotic scents of the East ease your body and mind. Then sun yourself at the pool in peace and harmony.
Have you ever climbed a tree to find a relaxing massage? At Canonnier the spa has been built into a centuries old banyan tree. Rustic stone steps lead you up among the branches to the wooden treatment cabins which look out onto a pool built of granite rocks. The water reflects the branches above you creating a feeling of ‘alone in the forest’. Experienced therapists use treatment methods gained from ancient Indian cultures and their healing hands lull you into a feeling of peace with the world. The treatment cabins open onto a sunny deck for relaxing afterwards.
The fresh and floral aroma of Jasmine greets you as you enter this haven of health and beauty. Tucked away in a shady grove, the thatch-roofed Dinarobin spa is the ultimate escape for the world-weary traveller.
The spa is separated into three main areas:
Central to the complex is an interior swimming pool surrounded by massage rooms, hammams, saunas and a beauty parlour. Relax with a cool fruit juice from the health bar when you’re done. Whatever your favourite brand of pampering, Dinarobin has everything you’re looking for.
