The whirlpool bath, also called spa or Jacuzzi, is extremely relaxing. Hydro-massage reduces pressure on joints, and those who suffer from osteoarthritis will be soothed, thanks to the buoyancy of your body in water. The jets gently massage the muscles to eliminate toxins and activate blood circulation. And finally, the warm water will improve you sleep quality.
A traditional Roman ritual, the Hammam is an excellent purifying and detoxifying bath thanks to its 40° C humid heat and its eucalyptus essences. This bath is ideal for a deep relaxation, it emolliates the skin and prepares it to receive a scrub.
A traditional ritual from the Nordic countries, the Sauna provides well-being and relaxation by alternating a 90°C heat bath and a cold shower. The Sauna is ideal for joint pain, muscle relaxation, stress and immune defences.
Relax in a hushed and discreet space with soft and enveloping lighting and unwind on our deckchairs and lounge areas.
This hot oil massage regenerates, relaxes and brings lasting serenity – the ultimate Zen treatment.
The word ‘Ayurveda’ is made up of the words ‘ayur’ (science) and ‘veda’ (life). Ayurveda is therefore the ‘Science of Life’, a traditional and holistic medicine that originated in India a long time ago. Ayurvedic massage is a wellness treatment known for its preventive properties and its ability to promote the distribution of energy throughout the body.
Shirodhara has a clarifying effect, calming the mind and improving cognitive functions. It will help you to feel both invigorated and at peace. This treatment has a purifying effect on the mind and provides a calm and balanced state of mind.

A form of chromatherapy. The affusion shower is a horizontal board made up of several shower heads, suspended over a special treatment table. Lying on your back, you can either enjoy the water flowing in a fine warm rain over your body or as a more invigorating hydro massage, depending on the pressure chosen. Due to its many benefits, the affusion shower is particularly popular.
Affusion massage (or hydro massage) adds the many virtues of water to your massage. In this way, your body benefits from both the trace elements contained in the water and the relaxation provided by our expert hands.
