Possibly the best part of a vacation is experiencing complete relaxation. The recently opened eco-luxury Spa Azor is one such haven of utter bliss, offering a range of premium treatments using 100 percent natural products, within a serene, sophisticated environment.

Located on one of the largest islands in the Azores archipelago in Portugal, Spa Azor sits amidst a breathtaking landscape of lush, green-forested mountains, waterfalls and azure-blue waters of the many lagoons. The power of nature is strong here, and respected too. Which is why the theme of eco-friendly sustainability takes prominence at the spa that provides indulgent wellness programmes, designed along organic and chemical-free trends.

Boasting an indoor heated pool, sauna, Turkish bath, aromatic shower and three treatment rooms with natural light, the spa provides a range of services to its visitors. There’s even a 24-hour gym, exclusively for hotel guests. This diversity extends to their selection of treatments and massages, as well. With seven distinct categories available, there’s something for everyone.

For those seeking some special pampering, the Spa Junkie treatment involving an exfoliation with green tea and essential oils, exfoliation and body wrapping, a massage and facial express is perfect. And for that the workaholic looking for a quick session tending to tired muscles, Terra à Vista’s recovery massage with essential oils and pure marine magnesium is ideal. There’s even a package for that romantic couple keen on some together time.

And to ensure the purest of experiences, locally sourced, fresh ingredients — essential oils of plants like Laurus azorica and Cryptomeria, Azorean milk, yogurt, pineapple and more — are used, alongside products by Pinks Boutique. This high-end British brand is known for its environmentally friendly, vegan and completely organic skincare range.

The Spa Azor is open to all guests at the hotel, as well as to the local populace.
