Anantara Spa at Tivoli Palácio de Seteais: An Oasis in the Portuguese Hills of Sintra
Nestling in the verdant hills of the Sintra region, a timeless, peaceful oasis just 30 minutes from the capital city of Lisbon in Portugal, the Anantara Spa at the Tivoli Palácio de Seteais makes its debut.
Here, guests can immerse themselves in centuries of history and romance in the exclusive 18th century palatial splendour of the boutique hotel Tivoli Palácio de Seteais, while experiencing unparalled luxury in the hotel’s newly opened Anantara Spa.
This indulgent spa reflects every detail of the luxury for which this unique hotel is justly famous. Personifying the Anantara ethos, it is rooted in Thai therapies and Asian traditions, yet fused with indigenous and authentic elements unique to an historical palace and the picturesque town of Sintra, famed for its stunning gardens, romantic palaces and castles and lush, evergreen forests. The Anantara Spa is in the Palace’s former dovecote tower, or pigeonnier, as it was known in former times.
Based on timeless healing traditions, the Anantara Spa’s tranquil surroundings help to restore the necessary balance of body and mind. Like the rest of the Palácio, the luxuriously appointed spa treatment rooms - including a suite for couples - boast period furniture. The adjacent Vichy Experience room massage leaves guests feeling invigorated and prepared for another day’s discovery of Sintra.
Anantara Signature Treatments
The Anantara Signature Massage brings together an exclusive mixture of oils with movements and unique techniques which stimulate circulation, promoting deep relaxation while also restoring energy flow along meridian lines.
Tailored to meet individual requirements, the Detoxifying Body Ritual uses an organic green coffee scrub to remove impurities from the skin, which is followed by an hour-long massage with aromatherapy detoxifying oils.
Face care is taken to a completely different level with expertise by Biologique Recherche and the vast selection of products in its specialist portfolio. These products meet the most demanding of standards for beauty, along with the quality and sophistication of the most recent trends and treatments in skincare
Vinotherapy and local ingredients – Centuries Old Treatments for Ultimate Well-Being
For many years, wine has been used in beauty and well being therapies. The Anantara Seteais Romantic Experience is a voyage of pleasure and sensuality which culminates in a facial vinotherapy session to leave your skin moisturised and radiant. This therapy uses some of the most brilliant examples of Colares Wine, which has been produced locally on the slopes of the Sintra hillsides since the 12th century. The body massage embraces lomi-lomi techniques and uses hot poultices scented with rosemary, sandalwood and orange blossom, resulting in total relaxation and relief of built-up muscle stress.
The Organic Hydrating Wine Body treatments – both the Wine Body Scrub and the Wine Body Wrap – provide a purifying exfoliation and a toning body wrap, where organic red wine and its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals and signs of ageing, restoring collagen and elastin, essential for a healthy and youthful appearance.
Based on the international experience of the Anantara Spa specialists and treatments, a collection of highly specialised and personalised rituals combines with truly luxurious care with powerful and long-lasting benefits for body, mind and soul.
A Healthy Mind is A Healthy Body
Following the ancient Greek maxim, Anantara Spa has a series of activities and revitalising programmes, such as yoga, meditation and walks to create the ideal symbiosis between a healthy and active routine, the well-deserved relaxation of your holiday and the stunning setting of a palace brimming with captivating frescos and period furnishings.
The palace gardens are an attraction themselves: a manicured front lawn, the flowering camellias, fragrant lemon trees, hibiscus and jasmine. In the Anantara spa herb garden, lemongrass, lavender, rosemary, basil and mint, jasmine and hibiscus are just some of the aromas which will turn a simple stroll outside into a fairy tale experience.With the guarantee of the hospitality for which Tivoli is justly renowned, the Anantara Spa is a a haven of peace and tranquillity – an utterly relaxing and rejuvenating experience in an iconic setting.
