What Are The Best Spas In Barcelona?
ULTIMATE BARCELONA SPAS LIST
These are our Barcelona spas and massage venues:
Head to the exclusive Pedralbes district, and at the end of Diagonal Avenue you’ll find the Chi Spa inside the premises of the prestigious David Lloyd Turo Club. While they have a water area with a jacuzzi pool, what they really stand out for are their treatments. You can balance your chi with their Chilax and Massage Chi services, give your skin a new softness and brightness with the Salt Glow scrub, get ride of that cellulite with either acustic waves, radiofrequency or piroche sessions…
They also offer services for special needs and moments, such as pregnancy, bridal packages, men services, jet-lag fighting… Plus in their hair saloon where you can also get manicure and pedicure treatments and make up sessions where they use the fine cosmetic brands that celebrities adore. There is another Chi Spa in Madrid, too.
Rituels d’Orient Hammam
Also in the upper area of Diagonal Avenue, but a bit more centrally located, this is a spa for water, silence and inner peace lovers, inspired in the ancient hammams from Turkey and Morocco. Let the steam open your pores and release toxins while you go through the warm and the hot rooms.
Get a massage from their à la carte menu lying on the warm marble benches, get wrapped in exotic coatings of rassoul and shea butter, then submerge in the pool surrounded by dimmed lights while you listen to the sound of water falling into the pool from an antique fountain. Then end your ritual sipping a cup of mint tea at their relaxation room.
Thai Massage Spa
If massages are all you care about and water circuits aren’t a priority, then you need to check out this spa very centrally located in Passeig de Gracia, or in their second venue in Pedralbes. All their therapist have been trained in official schools in Thailand and have extensive experience. And all their stretchers are also imported from Thailand.
Their goal is to transport you to a mental and body space of relaxation and bliss through their millenary techniques.
They offer a variety of Thai, Bali and Hawaian massages. And they also feature a special room for couple massages, and a jacuzzi room where you can finish your treatment with a floral bath.
Aire de Barcelona Spa
The first Aire spa was open in a brick vaulted basement of the trendy Born district. Now they have venues in Madrid, Seville, Paris, New York and soon in Chicago. Water is the star at Aire, as all their services include their gorgeous pools at different temperatures ranging from cold to warm and hot, jacuzzi bubbles and salted water.
Then you can add up to your experience booking some massage on bench or hot marble, or a more complete ritual package. Our favorite is the Water Ritual, that includes a massage floating in the water. They work on a shift schedule to let people access the pools at their booked time – so it’s not a private experience, but don’t worry: they don’t oversell, and it never feels like it’s too packed – you’ll probably even get to have a pool to yourself for a while.
And if you are booking a ritual, they give you extra time at the pools after the “basic” clients time is over. One more thing we love: they are open at night as well, the last shift being at 11PM during weekdays and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Make sure to book online, as it always sells out.
Bali Spirit Spa Lounge
Another centrally located Eixample spa, walking distance from Passeig de Gracia, this spa has a very special vibe. Its owner and guru comes from Bali, and she selects therapists from her island, that she doesn’t only train, but through meditation, lomas and shadanas, she takes them to a state of consciousness and pureness that reflects in the way they provide their services.
The whole venue is decorated with an elegant oriental feel that leads to relaxation, and OMG, their massage list is so long it’s really hard to choose from their offer. They have 5 packages for couples, expensive treatments for the most demanding men, ideas for girl parties, massages for pregnant ladies, and even a VIP room at your disposal for 2 hours.
AND BONUS! This is the most exclusive Thai spa in Barcelona:
Another very centrally located spa in Eixample district just one block away from Passeig de Gràcia, offering services inspired in the wellness culture of Thailand. The space is decorated with oriental touches taking into account the 5 elements: water, fire, earth, wood and metal, and all the therapists are Thai and certified by the Po Temple in Bangkok, working your body not just from the physical point of view, but also from energetic and spiritual levels.
Besides their variety of Thai massages, they also have aromatic treatments where they use essential oils from Bali, Hawaii and Indonesia, 4-hand massages and a unique bamboo therapy that includes a flower foot bath. Body wraps and scrubs, special mother-to-be treatments and a dozen of special massage and treatment packages are also available.
