The spa itself consists of an indoor pool and jacuzzi, Turkish bath, sauna, hydrotherapy, sensory showers, various traditional treatment rooms, a fitness center, and the exclusivity of a private spa suite. Gourmet dishes are prepared daily, and food served is freshly arranged for each individual, with an emphasis on seasonal and nutritious cuisine.
