Eight treatment rooms to be dedicated to sea water treatments
The Sofitel luxury hotel under development in Bahrain will house “the first fully-fledged Thalassa Spa” in the GCC, Accor Hospitality Middle East managing director Christophe Landais has revealed.
“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.
Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq by Thalassa Sea & Spa is a 262-room luxury resort being developed by Accor and The Saleh Hospitality Group.
Other leisure facilities will include a relaxing indoor pool, segregated male and female areas with steam and sauna facilities and a So Fit health club equipped with the Kinesis from Technogym.
Spa treatments will include wellness packages for mothers and babies, post traumatic cures, beauty treatments and rituals.
