A Spa with Western and Eastern roots

Water, a vital and therapeutic element, flows through the yard in the winding River Sar, and is also present in the Spa indoor heated swimming pool, with its unique sights and natural lighting. It follows its course in the sauna, the hydro massage, the sensation shower and the ice cabin and reaches the flotarium, where the lack of gravity caused by salt provides a deep relaxing experience.

The aromatherapy based on elements ranging from water to essential oils, is present in the A Quinta da Auga Spa, aiming to arouse incredible emotions and moods by using the best aromas. The essential oil shower, a superb combination of water and plants’ “soul”, will uplift your emotions to the extreme, while aromatic drops are ceaselessly running down your skin.

In the Quinta da Auga Spa it is thought that people’s health and beauty reflect their inside world through their body. This is the reason why the A Quinta da Auga’s therapies are based on scientific evidence-based principles which greatly differs from the approach followed by ordinary spas. In this way, with the thousand-year-old Ayurveda Medicine, “the science of life” in the Indian healing procedure, therapies can be personalized according to each individual’s circumstances through tension relieving massages which harmonize body, mind & spirit. The Spa’s holistic approach to wellbeing continues with the Chinese Traditional Medicine which tries to find a balance between “Yin” and “Yang” and provides therapies such as acupuncture and invigorating massages. Among its most outstanding therapies it is worth mentioning A Quinta da Auga journey, which includes 90 minutes’ flotarium, invigorating body exfoliation with bamboo and relaxing and a revitalizing crystal massage.
