One to add to the wishlist when things look up; relax, rest and recover your vital energy with a Gran Canaria spa break
Gran Canaria is the perfect destination to try and leave behind some of the negative effects of the pandemic. Since the mid-nineteenth-century, wealthy travellers from Europe have come to the island, looking to treat their ailments by taking advantage of the therapeutic properties of the sea, sand and thermal water spas.
Over the past few years, the island has become a well-established health and wellness destination, not only because of the island’s spring-like weather all year round and contrasting landscapes, but also thanks to human intervention, adding facilities such as spas and thalassotherapy centres to hotels and a great variety of health, beauty and relaxation treatments.
SPA AND THALASSOTHERAPY CENTRES
The island’s spa and thalassotherapy centres offer a wide range of services. Some treatments on offer include seaweed, marine mud, aloe vera, salt baths, hydrotherapy, paraffin and mud, aromatherapy, massage therapy, reflexology, heated seawater and flotation pools, saunas and Jacuzzi, among other facilities. Treatments designed to improve our health and wellness have been made available using the island’s natural resources, such as aloe vera. These establishments are near the coast, enabling guests to enjoy the benefits of the sea and the incredible sunrises and sunsets. Guests can also take part in their favourite physical exercise and taste some local food on offer.
Together with these accommodation establishments, which belong to the Salobre Hotel Resort and Serenity, Gloria Thalasso and Hotels, Be Cordial Hotels and Resorts and Seaside Collection hotel chains, the following hospitals are also part of the ‘Gran Canaria Spa, Wellness and Health Association’: San Roque Hospitals, La Paloma Hospital and San Jose Hospital. Through the association, guests can choose the medical treatments they want to receive and book accommodation with their health and wellness treatments. Visit and book at grancanariawellness.com
