Complementing its pristine and spectacular coastal setting overlooking one of the Western Algarve’s most beautiful stretches of beach near the historic fishing port of Sagres, the recently opened Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel unveils its new Finisterra Spa this month to bring an extra dimension of health, vitality and indulgence to the area.
Hidden away within its own secluded grounds and maintaining the resort’s philosophy of ‘barefoot luxury’, Martinhal’s Finisterra Spa thoughtfully draws on the area’s natural surroundings to nurture a distinct sense of place, harmony and wellbeing.
The spa features six beautifully appointed individual treatment rooms with private showers, a wet area with sauna and steam bath, a tranquil relaxation area and interior garden. Wrapped in timber and featuring vaulted ceilings, the naturally lit treatment rooms are arranged separately around the garden to provide an ambience of both privacy and seclusion.
Perfectly describing its location at the south western most tip of Europe where the land and sea embrace, ‘Finisterra’ means “end of the earth”. Deriving inspiration from this extraordinary union and in honour of Sagres’ ancient seafaring history, the resort’s spa menu comprises an exotic selection of massages, rituals and treatments with their roots embedded in the ‘Age of Discovery’ and the establishment of ‘The Spice Route’. Offering a blend of aromatic oils, perfumes, spices and herbs, Finisterra’s spa products are taken from the exclusive Terraké spa brand and VOYA range with its 100% organic seaweed based products.
Guests can embark on the ultimate spa journey with one of Finisterra Spa’s six ‘Signature Rituals’. One such treatment is the ‘Vasco de Gama’ Indian hot stone treatment named after the first navigator to discover the sea route to India. Re-mineralising the body and releasing muscular tension, the body is warmed with heated red jasper and semi precious stones and swathed in aromatic oils of cinnamon and rose.
Maintaining the ancient theme whilst incorporating contemporary techniques, the spa also offers a wide range of massages treatments, from Swedish full body massage to Indian Ayurvedic head massage as well as VOYA’s Herbal Compress and Hot Stone massages.
Finisterra Spa has also introduced a number of treatments especially for men. Making the most guest’s time at Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel, spa treatments are offered all day and well into the evening with the opportunity for guests to have a bespoke spa programme tailor made for them by one of the fully qualified spa practitioners. Massages can also be provided in the privacy of the guest’s own accommodation.
