HYDROTHERMAL STATIONS

Affusion Showers
Summer Storm, Arctic Mist and Tropical Rainbow showers are designed to increase or decrease body temperature and are perfect stops between the other hydrothermal stations.

Aroma Steam
Each of the two steam chambers features a distinct scent and uses high temperature to induce heavy perspiration. The process detoxifies the body and boosts the immune system and circulation.

Brine Cavern
The combination of steam and salt is the ideal remedy for a blocked nasal passage. Gradually increasing body temperature strengthens the circulatory system and initiates the purifying process.

Bucket Drench Shower
This invigorating experience drenches the body in cold water to close pores and improve skin tone and clarity.

Grotto Steam
High humidity steam gently warms the body to stimulate blood circulation in an aroma-infused cabin.

Hammam
Inspired by the Middle Eastern tradition for body cleansing and purification, the Hammam features four individual cabins, a shower and a bubbling jet pool.

Herbal Sauna
The aromatic essence of dried herbs and flowers in a warm, comforting chamber is paired with soothing lights in this multi-sensory experience. 

Ice Igloo
This refreshing experience helps boost blood circulation through the rubbing of fresh ice on the body or a cold rain shower. Ideal for addressing cellulite-prone areas.

Rain Walk
The invigorating, warm water of the Rain Walk is the perfect cleansing experience before continuing to your next station.

Sauna
Heavy perspiration, induced by dry, high temperatures, detoxifies the body and boosts the immune system and circulation.

Sole Therapy
Two tingling foot spas – a pebbled pond alternating cold and hot water and a cross-current encouraging gentle exercise – help soothe aches in feet and calves.

Tropical Rain Shower
This state-of-art hydrotherapy facility combines scent, lighting and varying water temperatures for a heightened shower experience.

Vitality Pool

Water jets use soft acupressure massage to treat stress, soothe tense muscles and improve blood circulation. The Vitality Pool offers six different jet stations: 

  • Hydro Massage Lounger
  • Upper-body hydro massage jets
  • Lower-body hydro massage jets
  • Relaxing foot spa
