Post-season pampering

Those of us lucky enough to call Ibiza home often get to the end of the summer season and wonder why we feel so incredibly warn out. Whether the summer is your peak work period or you’ve just been inundated with visitors, October is the perfect time of year for locals to find a bit of peace and quiet with an indulgent spa day to recharge the batteries. A lot of places close down for the winter but there are a few local secrets where you can still get a good dose of luxurious self-care.

Can Curreu
Tucked amongst lush farmland on the edge of a forest behind San Carlos, this divine boutique hotel and spa is the go-to hideaway for locals. The spa is open all year round and offers a thermal circuit that includes a heated indoor pool, sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi, cascades, heated lounges, cold plunge pool and sensation showers. There’s a full gym if you want a work out beforehand but be sure to finish up with one of Can Curreu’s signature ritual treatments.

Atzaró
The setting alone is worth going here. This iconic rural hotel keeps its doors open all winter and the spa is an experience everyone should have. The traditional sauna and hammam plus a hi-tech sauna pod are matched with oils and unctions that are 100% natural and have been developed exclusively for the Atzaró spa. Along with the expected treatments available are Reiki healing sessions, fresh juices and delicious healthy lunches.

Hotel Fenecia
Open all year round, the Fenecia Prestige Spa offers an extensive treatment menu ranging from a thermal circuit, expertly designed spa experiences and rituals to hydro and electrotherapy. Massages include classic deep tissue, shiatsu and Swedish to bamboo firming, Abhyanga Ayurvedic and hot stone. If you’re expecting, you should definitely indulge in their Mother-to-be packages. You won’t regret it.
