When you think of a city break, you don’t usually think of a spa. Running ragged through busy streets, hopping on and off tour buses, and making sure you get every photo in the guidebook, but putting your feet up and relaxing? Surely not.
Not every city break needs to be this hectic, there’s a reason they’re called a break, after all. So if you’re over putting your feet through hell in last year’s sandals walking through every street in Barcelona, why not head to Slow Spa: Barcelona’s first premium spa that relaxes both your body, and your mind.
Slow Spa: A Premium Asian Spa
This little piece of heaven can be found in the heart of the city’s Eixample district. Its décor has taken inspiration from the continent of Asia, the ultimate guru in relaxing retreats where the body, the soul, and the mind come together in the ultimate multi-sensory experience.
Slow Spa has seven rooms- both single and double- inspired by the best luxury hotels in Asia. Along with the spa’s professional team of masseuses and physiotherapists, you can achieve ultimate rejuvenation and disconnect from the outside world, making for an experience that is truly irresistible.
The philosophy at Slow Spa is based upon the Slow Movement; a style of life focused on calmness and tranquillity, its aim to counterbalance the negative effects of a fast-paced lifestyle. At Slow Spa you can forget about the trivial things in life or problems that are getting you down, and instead focus on a simple way of living- if only for a few hours.
Treatments at Slow Spa
Like all good spas, Slow Spa offers a vast range of treatments for its guests. Relax with a full body treatment and exfoliate your skin of all impurities, or enjoy a facial rejuvenation and hydration treatment guaranteed to leave your skin feeling baby fresh. You can even indulge in a full Asian spa experience with a Thai massage that’ll have you thinking you’ve left Barcelona and arrived half way across the world!
As well as solo treatments, Slow Spa also offers treatments for two; great if you’re a couple. They even offer special treatments for those that are pregnant with a focus on the wellness of both the mother and the baby. And the best bit? All treatments at Slow Spa are done using products that are 100% natural, organic, and vegan, some you can come back to nature, in the most natural way. Did we mention that all treatments at Slow Spa can also be finished with 30 minutes in the Jacuzzi?
Finish your spiritual journey with a spot of Kundalini and Flow Yoga, a dynamic yoga class that fuses breathing and movement to purify your body of toxins. Attendees can take part individually or in groups no larger than four. The first session is free!
If you’re thinking everything we’ve said sounds right up your street, why not go the whole hog and gather some friends for a Beauty Party. With a minimum of four people per group, Slow Spa will completely close off the spa and open it exclusively just for your party group. Think of it as your very own oasis…
SLOW SPA opens every day from 10:00 to 21:00 (including Saturdays and Sundays) and bank holidays when it opens until 20:00.
You can find the spa at Carrer del Consell de Cent, 391.
