Located within the sleek walls of the luxury Ibiza Gran Hotel in Marina Botafoch lies the five-star property’s Open Spa, a serene and sophisticated wellness destination open to not only hotel guests, but also outside visitors. Whether you want to shake off the stresses of everyday life as you settle into your holiday, look your best for a special occasion or simply chill out in style, Open Spa boasts a variety of relaxing and beautifying rituals and treatments as well as premium facilities for him and her.
Offering everything you need to look and feel your best under one roof, the spacious 1,300 square metre wellness haven is split into four areas: the Open Beauty salon, which offers hair, make-up and nail services, the Open Fitness gym, the Open Experience treatment rooms and Open Aqua, a well-equipped hydrotherapy area complete with a warm salt inhalation room, a Turkish bath and Finnish sauna, warm and cold showers including a mist spray, tropical rain and bi-thermal Scottish option, a cold plunge pool and ice fountain, a dynamic pool and warm Jacuzzi waterbeds. The Camino Kneipp – or Kneipp Path –challenges guests to navigate a series of contrasting hot and cold foot basins to boost the immune system, while comfortable daybeds and waterbeds invite you to lie back and relax.
On the Open Experience menu, spa visitors will find a wealth of luxurious rituals, facials and massages to choose from. Taking place in one of the six private and tranquil treatment spaces, each with its own terrace to allow guests to enjoy their chosen ritual in open air and natural light, all of the services can be adapted to your personal needs. The Open Spa therapists are experts in their field and work with only the highest quality products, such as Elemis and Patyka. Meanwhile, couples can book the Romantic Spa Suite to experience their treatment together in the same room while hotel guests are invited to enjoy all pampering options from the comfort of their own suite.
Some of the top spa experiences to indulge in include the Golden Elegance Ritual for women, a two-hour treatment that combines a luxurious pampering of face and body using 24 carat gold to firm up the skin and strengthen its protective barrier. Nourishing and revitalising, it also adds a gorgeous shimmer to the teint that perfectly suits a summer tan. For male guests, the Absolute Spa Ritual for Him is a 110-minute experience created to combat stress and muscle fatigue, leaving you instead feeling deeply relaxed and ready to take on the world again after the blissful combination of a Deep Tissue massage and a facial especially designed for the needs of the male complexion.
Perfect for both ladies and gentlemen, the Akwaterra Massage is inspired by ancestral practices that combine the energy of water and earth to alleviate tension, relax the muscles and have a calming effect on both body and mind. Using ceramic vases filled with heated water to achieve a similar effect to a hot stone massage, the gentle curves and weight of the containers are applied to dissolve knots and tension. The treatment also includes a soothing and nourishing Vitamin C facial perfect for the sun-parched complexion. With so many blissful options to choose from, whenever you want to look and feel your very best a visit to Ibiza Gran Hotel’s Open Spa is a must.
