Ibiza wellness: Open Spa – Romance and relaxation
Ibiza is not always the obvious destination for a romantic getaway for couples, due to its famous vibrant social scene and buzzing beaches often targeting group holidays. However delve a little deeper and the white isle will always provide – beyond the big names, brands and overcrowded venues are plenty of amazing places to indulge in some intimate bonding time with your loved one – the very best of them being Open Spa, the island’s most prestigious modern-day healing and wellness centre.
Set within the luxurious surrounds of Ibiza’s only ‘Five-Star Grand Luxe’ resort, Ibiza Gran Hotel in the exclusive Marina Botafoch area, Open Spa boasts a specially designed, lavish Romantic Suite, where professionally trained, expert therapists devote their time to giving you and your partner side-by-side treatments. Whether you’re here on a romantic getaway, or simply wish to whisk your lover away from a busy group itinerary for a few treasured hours, this is the perfect place to be enveloped in positive, loving energy and be treated to luxurious pampering rituals.
In 2016, Open Spa introduce the all-new Romantic Massage – a deluxe couples’ massage experience offered within the romantic and well-appointed cabin – giving you all the more reason to indulge in some much-needed ‘us time’. A soothing atmosphere is created by soft candlelight while the air is perfumed with the essence of rosewood to awaken your senses while two plush massage beds lay side-by-side awaiting you and your partner to sink in, relax and let go of anything that enters your minds.
The mini luxury lovers’ retreat begins with a welcome ritual where expert hands use gentle pressure and scented wipes to induce you into the utmost tranquil and serene state. The massage uses natural, organic essential oils of camelia and frangipani to encourage total wellbeing, while the physical movements relieve stress, tone aching muscles and bring you both into deeper relaxation. The massage is therapeutic and restorative and tends to your entire body, leaving no fatigued muscle behind.
Finally, the experience is completed with a farewell ritual, uplifting, invigorating and encouraging healthy blood flow throughout your extremities, leaving you feeling relaxed yet completely revitalised. Following the treatment, couples are invited to plunge into the therapeutic waters of Open Aqua and experience the healing powers of the water circuit, an ancient practice known to relax, detoxify and replenish.
Together you’ll leave Open Spa with restored health, calm minds and relaxed bodies plus a very special experience carved into your Ibiza holiday memories to remember for years to come.
