Embracing the Conrad philosophy of ‘The Luxury Of Being Yourself’, the locally-inspired spa is a haven of relaxation, offering an intuitive and refreshing approach to the tailor-made spa experience. Here guests will enjoy state of the art techniques and effective, indulgent tailor-made treatments from Aromatherapy Associates and Intraceuticals, ensuring a restorative and rejuvenating journey.
Guests will enjoy their personalised spa journey from the moment they arrive in the 1800 square metre spa. Greeted with warmth, familiarity and a signature spa cocktail, they can then select treatments that will be tailored to their exact needs. In comfortable and stylish ‘spajymas’, guests will enjoy treatments in one of five treatment rooms that are a haven of light and tranquillity. Attached to each treatment room is an outdoor treatment cabana, bringing an alfresco element to the spa experience.
￼ It is also possible to enjoy the technology friendly Elixir Lounge, a comfortable ‘living space’ that has been created for guests to enjoy the Conrad concept of unrivalled connections. With research showing that many spa visitors find it unsettling to switch off or leave technology behind when enjoying spa time, Conrad Algarve Spa allows guests to stay connected by mobile and internet, whilst keeping phones on silent.
The Oxygen Bar in the Elixir Lounge allows guests to enjoy another innovative element during their spa journey. Guests can inhale pure oxygen infused with a distinct aroma to help alleviate problems such as stress or insomnia.
The bright and spacious Sensory Zone continues the experience, and features a peaceful sun terrace with impressive views over the surrounding countryside. Here the hotel’s theme of fire and ice continues with a sauna complete with garden views, a beautiful mosaic steam room, a hydro massage heated pool, sensory showers, plunge pool, ice fountain and open fire place, all of which combine to create a space of harmony and light.
An evolution of sophisticated spa culture, Conrad Algarve Spa blends a modern holistic approach in a contemporary way. Inspired by local culture, the treatment menu has been specifically designed for the spa and its guests. Available treatments include personalised facials, whole body scrub and massage treatments and harmonising spa experiences.
Exclusive Signature Treatment: Conrad Fire and Ice
Inspired by local expertise, Aromatherapy Associates has created the Conrad Fire and Ice treatment. This signature two hour, 15 minute experience combines natural elements and locally sourced ingredients from the land and sea to create a perfectly balanced and holistic experience. The bespoke treatments include an aromatic foot bath and scrub, full face and body exfoliation, full body aroma massage, warm earth mud pack and a specialised lymphatic facial massage.
Conrad Signature Brilliant Rose Facial
This 90 minute treatment has been created exclusively for the spa by Aromatherapy Associates and the oxygen facial experts, Intraceuticals. With exfoliation, a hydrating facial mask and a facial massage, skin will be relaxed and cell growth will be stimulated. An infusion of essential vitamins, antioxidants and peptides will further diminish signs of aging and ensure radiant skin.
Tailor-made and full day spa experiences will be available to guests and local residents, with nutritional yet delicious lunches put together specifically to meet the guests’ needs. This unique ‘spa cuisine’ can be delivered in a bento box style to complement and enhance various body systems and can be ordered via the in spa iPads. The spa also offers four different beverages a day - a mixology show case of drinks in addition to sorbets to quench the palate following treatments.
As well as the beautiful sensory zone and extensive treatment menu, guests will also enjoy an open air heated spa pool, fitness classes, tennis courts and a state-of-the-art gym. ‘Pre-natal Pampering’ and ‘Bride To Be’ spa journeys are also available.
