Fact Sheet | Spa experiences

Alba Thermal Springs & Spa’s wellness rituals and spa experiences complement the health-enhancing benefits of thermal bathing and assist Alba’s guests to renew, repair, and recalibrate.

Treatments include restorative rituals, massage and facial therapies, hammam and Vichy experiences, body scrubs and wraps, manicures, pedicures and more. Packages range from luxurious full-day self-care and wellness immersions to restorative half-day rituals and an array of indoor and outdoor thermal spa experiences.

For example, guests can surrender to three hours of self-love and acceptance with the Anahata Ritual. An hour of bathing in the thermal springs is followed by a smoothing silk glove exfoliation and a warm body mask infused with sandalwood, rose and jasmine to soften and purify the skin. A luxurious full-body massage with Coco Blossom Balm follows before you are gently cocooned for deep hydration into the skin. While resting, the face is lavished with five levels of cleansing, aromatic infusions, elixirs, balms and a double mask treatment to nourish the skin. There are also treatments for hair, scalp and feet.

A full-day package, such as The Shoreham, allows Alba’s expert team to deliver eight hours of top-to-toe holistic therapies while guests luxuriate in the spa’s serene surroundings. These one-day programs include lunch or dinner at our spa restaurant Thyme and provide rest and rejuvenation to individuals, couples, and small groups. This package comprises springs bathing, an Ancient Immersion under a Vichy shower, a Vedic Warrior deep tissue massage, the signature Alba Alchemy Facial, Marma Manicure and Padhabyhangha Pedicure, all using  Ayurvedic products by Aika True Wellness.

Alternatively, guests can combine an hour of thermal bathing with a two-hour Fire & Frost Facial for supernatural cell regeneration. This dynamic skin-resurfacing treatment uses potent natural ingredients and extreme temperatures to achieve immediate and lasting results. The treatment uses Vanessa Megan’s award-winning Cryō Ice Cube serum to rapidly cool the skin, flooding the cells with nutrient-rich ingredients to repair and hydrate.

Alba has 22 single and double spa suites encompassing dark steam rooms, thermal Vichy showers, private baths and calm treatment rooms. The Sol Lounge provides a separate space for group bookings and manicure and pedicure treatments.

A spacious relaxation space on the spa’s mezzanine level looks over Alba’s extensive native gardens and water features. There are 31 bathing pools of varying sizes, including geothermal pools, cold plunge pools and herbal-infused botanical pools.
