The go-to treatment is the “Floating on a Cloud.” A visit to the spa is not complete without it. They start you with a foot ritual to refresh your soles with an exfoliation made from essential oils of rosemary, rosewood and mint blended with salt and sugar. You will then be introduced to a selection of aromatherapy oils, which are used to perform a deeply relaxing, full-body massage. The oils are enriched with hazelnut oil rich in vitamin E to provide your skin with nutritive benefits. This experience will leave you completely relaxed, as though you were floating on a cloud.
