Relaxing at Eugenia Victoria Hotel’s Vital Wellness Centre


Vital Wellness Centre

After an overnight flight from Canada, several hours wait in an airport and a connecting flight in Zurich to Gran Canaria, what could better restore one’s equilibrium than time spent in the Wellness Centre at Eugenia Victoria Hotel? What a treat it was. As I descended the stairs into the Wellness Centre, the calming atmosphere was already starting to work its magic. I found several pools and whirlpools, varying in temperature, some with soothing jets, some more vigorous to knock out the tension from stiff and aching muscles.


Entrance to Dead Sea Salt Pool

Warm, soothing salt water in a “Dead Sea” pool in a dimly lit cave-like atmosphere offered a very enjoyable experience. No possibility of sinking here. Two saunas with varying degrees of heat ensure you’ll sweat out those toxins, restoring the skin to a healthy glow. Just outside the entrance to one sauna are several showers offering a variety of jets or a gentle “misting”—your choice. Still wanting to decompress? The centre is equipped with a softly lit relaxation room with lounging beds to ensure the ultimate in repose. To ensure a tranquil atmosphere, signs are posted throughout the centre asking for silence.  Many spa services are offered here including several types of massage and skin cleansing techniques.
