The use of thermal waters for different treatments dates back to classical Greece, but it was during the Roman Empire when the boom of thermal baths and spas began. With ups and downs, the tradition of “taking the waters” was maintained for centuries. In modern times it was in the Belgian city of Spa where one of the first modern spas was established in the 18th century. It became a meeting place for aristocracy from all over Europe, and the establishment model spread throughout the continent, and eventually the world.
Why stay at a spa hotel in Mallorca?
With modern facilities it is not essential for a spa to be located next to natural hot springs, we can recreate their multiple benefits artificially:
Hydromassage and thermal water treatments improve all these areas of our body:
- help to alleviate muscle and joint pain
- activate blood circulation and help to prevent hypertension
- they improve breathing, helping to combat respiratory problems
- they favor the functioning of the digestive system
The Romans also left us the motto mens sana in corpore sano: a balanced mind in a balanced body. This is how a spa helps our mind and nervous system:
- reduces stress
- helps to combat anxiety
- helps to reduce mental fatigue
- improves mood and state of mind
Apart from the health and mood benefits, a good spa will help us to improve our appearance in several ways:
- cleanses and moisturizes the skin
- helps to tone muscles
- helps to combat fluid retention
But these are only the most direct benefits of a spa. The massages and beauty treatments that complement them are another good reason to stay at one.
And although it is possible to go to one alone or with friends, the intimate and relaxed environment that surrounds them is ideal for a couple’s getaway.
Mallorca is the ideal place to stay in a spa hotel. We can find establishments away from the big tourist centers, almost lost in nature, both on the coast and inland, where the environment transpires the same relaxation as the spa itself.
But we can also opt for an establishment in a lively and busy beach area where we can enjoy the sun, leisure and sports, and then take refuge in the whirlpools to recover our energies.
How much does a hotel with spa in Mallorca cost?
Hotels with spa can be found in many categories. There will be more than 1000 € per night, but at the other extreme, we can find three or four star establishments for about 100 or 200 € per night. The average is around 400-500€.
