Ibiza tempts us with world-class restaurants, bars and clubs – and summer is the time to enjoy life to the fullest! However, in order to maintain those glowing looks we have strived so hard for, we need to balance out the hedonism with some pampering and relaxation. And on those days when you want to look and feel your very best, Open Spa, a peaceful wellness haven located in the renowned five-star Ibiza Gran Hotel, offers a wide range of pampering services.
From massages to facials, body scrubs to mani-pedis, make-up appointments, blow-dries and male grooming treatments, you will leave the serene oasis looking like a million dollars. This year, Open Spa has expanded its indulgent menu with a range of exclusive skincare treatments that will hep you to rehydrate, restore and rejuvenate your complexion. Working with only the most luxurious of beauty brands, including Grown Alchemist and Bioxidea Paris.
Before your treatment, enjoy soaking in the collection of relaxing pools, invigorating Jacuzzi beds and detoxing saunas at Open Aqua, the spa’s hydrotherapy area. Refresh your tired dancing feet with the therapeutic Camino Kneipp – a series of hot and cold footbaths – or rotate between the Turkish steam bath and the ice room before settling down on the heated beds in the peace of the relaxation room. Expertly designed, you cannot fail to appreciate the artistic décor which includes a striking mural by Migual Gomez Losada, a gentle reminder of Ibiza Gran’s accolade as an ‘art hotel’.
Once you’re suitably relaxed and settled into the blissfull surroundings, choose from bespoke Open Experience treatments for face or body, showcasing premium beauty brands such as Australian skincare range Grown Alchemist or the luxurious Parisian products from Bioxidea. We highly recommend Grown Alchemist’s rejuvenating facial, which focuses on rebuilding collagen and strengthening elastin by using organic botanicals. It involves an uninterrupted sequence of beautifying processes including a polishing exfoliation, soothing age-repair masque and face massage that not only feels sensational but smells incredible, too. Whilst the vitamins soak into the face, attention is given to your head and feet with a gentle massage using aromatic oils.
Another hot favourite and popular with celebrities, models and influencers alike is the Bioxidea Gold Facial, which features around the Bioxidea Mirage 48 Excellence face mask infused with the precious metal. Promising to lift, plump, tighten and brighten in just one facial session, it uses vegan-friendly, all-natural ingredients including high-potency detoxing botanicals and gold powder to smooth and repair micro-damage in the skin, as well as combatting inflammation. Again, a shoulder and head massage, is included in the heavenly ritual, which also pays special attention to your hands and feet with lotion-soaked masks.
Each of the treatments last 50 minutes and finishes with a stay in the Spirit Room, a soothing oasis offering a warm neck pillow, herbal teas and luxury chocolate to help you readjust to reality. Life is all about balance and this rejuvenating indulgence is the perfect way to keep your summer spirit and youthful glow in check.
