Five Star Columbia Beach – luxury spa discount with ELIXIR MAKEOVER MILES

Paphos: The five star Columbia Beach Resort, one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean is offering Elixir Makeover Miles privilege card holders discounts on direct hotel and spa bookings.

The Columbia Beach Resort is surrounded by lush gardens and is an all-suite hotel. It has one of the best outdoor pools on the island of Cyprus and one of the best spas.

The Resort is offering a 10% discount on rooms and 15% on spa treatments – booked directly with the resort.

Cyprus is one of the sunniest and friendlest islands in the Mediterranean. As well as sun, sand and sea there is spectacular mountain scenary and archeological sites. The people of Cyprus are friendly and the cuisine centres around the freshes of home-grown ingredients.

The Resort
This exclusive all suite resort ambles gently upward from the sparkling waters of the bay following the natural incline of the landscape so that most suites have a spectacular sea view and many also look out over the 80m lagoon-style swimming pool, which is the central feature guarded by towering palm trees.

All that is best in Cypriot architecture and local materials has been used. Sloping roofs and graceful arches are predominant, as is the use of natural wood and stone, and the specially reclaimed terracotta roof tiles give the whole project a nicely aged and traditional look. All suites have shuttered windows, heavy wooden doors and large covered balconies.

Paved pathways, shaded by bougainvillaea and olive trees, meander throughout the resort around the traditional taverna and ouzeri, past the quaint little Chapel of All Saints and on down to the beach.

Spa & Well-being

The COLUMBIA SPA offers numerous therapies for relaxation and revitalising – various types of massage, body wraps, detoxification treatments, skin cleansing and toning – all performed by the highly qualified Spa staff with products from Molton Brown and Phytomer.

Treatment rooms surround a central area containing sauna & cold plunge pool, steam bath and Jacuzzi.

New luxury Spa for Marbella’s Sentidos en Rio Real

image

Marbella: The glamorous Sentidos en Rio Real hotel, Marbella’s first and only five-star boutique hotel and member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, has opened a stunning spa called Petite Sérénité to bring a high calibre, intimate, authentic and personalised wellness experience to its guests and to complement its golf experience, arguably one of the best in Marbella.

Petite Sérénité has a glorious roof top location, adjacent to the hotel’s pool and terrace. Combining warm hues, natural materials such as wood and stone and contemporary design, Petite Sérénité is a tranquil sanctuary, with two treatment rooms, a wet treatment suite, a relaxation area, and male and female changing areas. Taking great care to avoid a formulaic and impersonal approach to hotel spa, great attention is paid to providing high levels of personal service and in developing innovative treatments including exfoliations, massage and rituals.

At Petite Sérénité, treatments take inspiration from the rich local flora and are based on natural, indigenous ingredients such as jasmine flowers, honey, Muscatel and Mediterranean herbs to evoke the Andalucían culture and to deliver a unique experience that reflects the location.

Treatments include Essence of the South body exfoliations such as the Salt and Fire Ritual,which combines a hot stone skin preparation with an exfoliation using nourishing sea salts, flower extracts and aromatic herbs; and the Malaga Flower Exfoliation, incorporating aromatic jasmine and geranium flowers. Both of these treatments conclude with a soft moisturising massage.

Massages and rituals include the Rosemary Ritual, an invigorating treatment combining the tonic strength of rosemary with a firm massage.

As a 29-room golf hotel, a number of treatments have also been developed with specific therapeutic focus on the needs of golfers, such as the Mint and Camomile Massage, a refreshing and soothing treatment that reduces tension in the feet and legs.

With a serene location nestled between the Sierra Blanca and the Mediterranean Sea, just three kilometres from the bustling centre of Marbella, Sentidos en Rio Real also offers creative fine dining at the elegant Sentidos Restaurant, with legendary local dishes such as black pasta with fresh red prawns, complimented by wines from the hotel’s extensive wine cellar.

In addition to the hotel’s beautiful par 72, Javier Arena-designed golf course, known to be one of the best in Marbella with spectacular views, other facilities include new floodlit tennis and padel tennis courts and a luxury motor yacht Rio Real III, moored in the glamorous Puerto Banús marina, and available for guests. Sentidos en Rio features 29 deluxe rooms and suites blending modern décor with traditional influences courtesy of renowned interior designer Pascua Ortega.

For further information and reservations contact Sentidos en Rio Real on tel: +34 952 765 732, by e-mail at hotel@rioreal.com, or simply by visiting www.rioreal.com

Sentidos en Rio Real is 30 minutes by car from Malaga International Airport, which is well served by a number of airlines operating direct flights from 16 UK airports including British Airways, bmi, easyJet, Flybe, Globespan, and Monarch Airlines.
