Relaxing at Eugenia Victoria Hotel’s 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.
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.
