Spa and wellness centres in Marbella
In a place as stylish and upmarket as Marbella, luxury five-star resorts often come accompanied by sumptuous spas and state of the art health and beauty centres, so Marbella has developed a reputation as a centre of excellence in this field, providing the full range from medical hydrotherapy and Arab baths to luxuriating places where it is a pleasure to relax, detox and enjoy a pampering massage or professional health/beauty treatment.
Here are some of the best spa and wellness centres in the Marbella area:
Villa Padierna Medical Wellness and Spa
Part of the grand Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Hotel, this award-winning spa ranks among the very best on the Costa del Sol.
