“Due to open in June 2010, the Thalassa Spa will span more then 2000m² and boast 14 treatment rooms, eight of which are fully dedicated to sea water treatments. In addition, a multi station hydrotherapy pool will complement the individual seawater treatments,” said Landais.

Thalassa Spa is a sub brand of Accor called Accor Thalassa, which Landais said was “the biggest” thalassotherapy spa operator in Europe.
