A relaxing adults-only Thalasso spa on the sparkling Costa del Sol, with optional half board
Occupying a prime position on the Costa del Sol, between Puerto Banus and Estepona, Barcelo Estepona Thalasso Spa is a haven from the stresses and strains of the humdrum. Situated just 600 metres from the beach, with a shuttle to ferry you to some of the area's most sought-after beach clubs, this luxurious retreat houses a beautiful outdoor pool offering ideal cocktail drinking and lounger loafing territory. It's also within a putter's swing of several excellent golf courses, including Guadalmina and Atalaya.
The main event here, however, is the hotel's 2000 square metres worth of mesmerising, blissful spa facilities. This is one Mediterranean escape that's bound to leave you feeling as shiny as a new cent by the time you leave. Not only does Thalasso U-spa offer its visitors a marine therapeutic circuit with clean water piped direct from the Mediterranean, it also provides 11 marine hydrotherapy rooms, 19 sumptuous Thalasso suites, a range of soothing massages, and beauty treatments give your body an outward healthy glow. From Niagara to Jamaica, the spa's hydromassage baths have got the world map covered. The therapists here don't go for a one-treatment-fits-all approach, they tailor their professional handiwork to your body's individual needs and skin type.
Superior double rooms come decked in neutral fabrics with modern furnishings. The serene and relaxing ambience perfectly complements the main pampering purpose of this luxurious retreat.
When you've finished with the dynamic pool with counter-current system, active pool with more than 20 stations, air-water beds, swan neck jets, cascades, hydromassage jets, Finnish sauna, hammam and aroma bath, try a treatment or two. Packages include the Integral Care and the Marine Encounter programmes.
Dr Antonio Escribano, specialist in endocrinology and nutrition, has had a say in the mouth-watering menus available at Aguamar Restaurant. You'll find nutritionally balanced meals offering up sophisticated gastronomy and wonderful flavours. À la carte options are available, alongside a buffet spread. Daytime snacks are available at both the lobby bar and the pool bar.
The hotel is located 600 metres from the beach on the sparkling Costa del Sol, an area that offers some of Europe's finest stretches of sand and sunshine. Watersports are available by the boat-load and keen golfers will appreciate the range of top notch courses found within a short put of the hotel.
