Beyond Luxury Awards recognises Bahía del Duque as Best Wellness Experience in Spain and Portugal

The jury of the awards recognised the offer of the hotel of the group The Tais Hotels & Villas among the best luxury hotels.

The hotel Bahía del Duque received the Beyond Luxury Awards in the Best Hotel Wellness Experience category. The jury of these awards, which distinguish the best luxury hotels in Spain and Portugal of the year, recognised the wellness experience offered to guests and visitors of Bahía Wellness Retreat, the hotel spa of the group The Tais Hotels & Villas.

Bahía del Duque invites you to discover relaxing and renewing 360º experiences. With its concept of a «Wellness Universe«, the hotel has developed a complete programme of rituals and personalised treatments carried out by an expert team of therapists, trainers and physiotherapists.

Located in the heart of the hotel, Bahía Wellness Retreat combines the relaxing power of seawater, the sun energy and the volcanic rocks. The experience in the outdoor thalassotherapy circuit starts in the Vitality Pool with a two-metre waterfall, hydromassage jets and bubble beds. The relaxation continues in the hammam, saunas, Scottish and bucket showers, a cold water pool and an outdoor solarium with shaded relaxation areas.

Surrounded by gardens and vegetation, it features treatment cabins outdoors, two private suites, a Kinesis, Pilates and Yoga hall, a fitness centre, a physiotherapy area, a Face-Coach service (facial training), a beauty salon and a Thai Room Spa to experience the soothing properties of traditional Asian therapies.

According to the Hotel manager, Cristina de Juan, “Featuring in the selection of Beyond Luxury Awards in the Best Hotel Wellness Experience category is a real source of satisfaction for our entire team because it positions us as a benchmark destination for travellers who value wellness and innovation in relaxation plans and treatments. It also forces us to always maintain the level of excellence as one of the best experiences in the world”.
