Not many years ago, it would have been a very difficult task, but today the difficulty strives in choosing between all the hotels available.
The wellness culture is increasingly imposing itself in the most tourist destinations, as is the case with Palma de Mallorca. In the last 5 years, the capital of the Balearics has seen how the offer of spa centres and hotels with wellness areas has proliferated in an ongoing effort to differentiate themselves and offer their clients that extra that they expect during their holidays in the Mediterranean.
The wellness areas are also a good claim for all those hotels that have made a commitment to tourism throughout the year and want to eradicate the deep seasonality of the tourists travelling to Majorca, and in general, to the Balearic Islands.
Hotel chains and large tourism groups, such as Tryp, NH, Melia or Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, have developed their own concepts of wellness, as is the case of the Thai Zen SPAce that one can find in some hotels in Playa de Muro by Iberostar, or in Son Antem, very close to Palma, in one of the most surprising luxury hotels in Majorca.
Others, like the hotel chain Garden Hotels, is strongly committed to it and have made the spa concept in one of their key proposals of their new range of added values. The Garden Spa, a programme of health and wellness that can be enjoyed at their Playa Garden hotel, in Playa de Muro, as well as other accommodations of the chain like the adults only hotel in El Rompido, Huelva or their hotels in Almeria.
Marina hotels has been one of the last main chains of hotels in Majorca to join the fashion for wellness that reports a substantial income. With the intention of making use of the winter to carry out the construction, the adults only hotel in Cala Estancia, Marina Luz hotel, it will inaugurate in January a wellness area with sauna, fitness, jacuzzi, massage and views to the bay of Palma.
The hotel’s management intends to promote a highly specialised line of work that has been implemented in recent years with great success: turn this charming hotel in Palma into a reference for business travellers and couples to the islands capital.
For now, the Marina Luz has positioned itself as one of the most interesting hotels in this area of the coast of Palma and close to the airport, during the low season. Tourists that are interested in art, business travellers, congresses and incentives, young couples for a romantic escapade or senior holidays are the profiles of people that can be found in this hotel.
With the opening of the new wellness area, the aim is to reach a wider public and to offer those who choose to spend their Christmas holidays on the island a more adapted service to present time. In this regard, access to the relax area will be free for all guests of the hotel.
