Costa del Sol is famous for its stunning beaches, lovely atmosphere, delicious food, facilities, nightlife, shopping destinations and, obviously, for sun and sea. It is also a top destination if you fancy treating yourself with a day of pampering by visiting one of the many Thalasso Spas located in and close to the city of Marbella.
Thalasso Spa Therapy is a treatment that takes its name from the Greek words for sea – thalasso, and treatment – therapia. Unlike a traditional spa where the emphasis is on relaxation and beauty, Thalasso Spa Therapy promotes healing. You can expect professional qualified therapists to use a combination of seawater, marine products and heat treatments to aid rejuvenation, anti-aging, weight loss, relieve stress and to re-energise your mind and body. Whether you choose to book in for a weekend or a one-off treatment you’ll leave feeling fantastic and ready for anything, and especially for the summer season that already started on the Sunny Coast of Spain. Here are three of the most well-known Thalasso Spas located in Marbella, Estepona and Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol:
In Marbella, at Marbella Club Hotel
The Marbella Club Hotel is located on the famous Golden Mile, just 5 minutes from Puerto Banús, offering an excellent luxury beachfront Thalasso Spa with state of the art facilities. They pump seawater straight from the Mediterranean into their dynamic Seawater Pool, where it is treated and warmed to right below body temperature.
After an invigorating session at the Thalasso Dynamic Seawater Pool or the Osmanic steam baths, 12 treatment rooms offer personalised experiences performed by experts. Also, the P.R. of Marbella Club Hotel details that, among others, at the Wellness centre they “also carry Thalion products, a French brand from Brittany (the place where Thalasso therapy was born), that cultivate their own seaweed. These products are used for all of our wraps.”

In Torremolinos, at the Wellness Centre of Mélia Costa del Sol
Mélia Costa del Sol’s Wellness Centre in Torremolinos boasts a fantastic marine spa using filtered sea water taken “from 1,000 metres off the coast, at a depth of 6 metres, thanks to sophisticated engineering and a complex filter system, as the team of the Centre explains. Furthermore, conservation is exceptional as it undergoes strict sanitary controls and is constantly renewed.” Sea water contains over 80 essential elements for the body and a special ion concentration of calcium, magnesium, sodium, silicon and iodine, among many other beneficial elements.
Furthermore, “at a temperature between 35 Cº and 37 Cº, these bio elements enter the body helping you to strengthen it and regain its natural balance. Sea water with its high hydrostatic power stimulates circulation, helps relax the muscles and provides all the advantages of improved body mobility” the specialists from Mélia Costa del Sol’s Wellness Centre add.
