This is the spectacular super luxury spa in Sotogrande.
The SO/ Sotogrande Hotel is the first 5 star hotel located in the exclusive urbanisation and the first of the SO/Hotels&Resorts brand in Southern Europe. Built in the former Cortijo de Santa María de la Higuera, it has become a unique place where guests can enjoy the facilities and surroundings in total discretion.
Surrounded by golf courses, polo clubs and a nature reserve, the classic Andalusian farmhouse concept blends with a contemporary style in a place to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
As such, the resort includes SO/SPA & HEALT CLUB, a 2,800m2 multi-zone wellness centre featuring science-inspired treatments for body and mind, all with views of the Mediterranean. “We have a 360º approach: from getting fit to rejuvenating, detoxifying, releasing stress or improving sleep.
Eight natural therapy cabins, modern cosmetology, cryotherapy, thermal pools, relaxation area and a Hammam are some of its facilities and treatments. It also has a gym area, known as SO/FIT, with machines, rooms for fitness activities (such as spinning or Pilates) and an area for Shala Yoga and meditation.
With the aim of disconnecting and enjoying a relaxing stay, SO/Sotogrande offers, among others, a five-night or full-week proposal where the resort team will guide guests through the different treatments and activities. The relaxation plan consists of a first day of cryotherapy lasting 25 minutes (a technique that exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures for a few minutes to stimulate the body and help circulation).
The second day includes a one-hour personal training session and a 50-minute deep tissue massage. Towards the middle of the stay, the proposal comes in the form of a floating session of about 25 minutes, in a cabin with water and salts that levitate the body leading to a feeling of lightness. In addition, a treatment rich in nutrients will be performed for 45 minutes to restore radiance and bring brightness and vitality to the face.
The fourth day is a return to personal training together with a 50-minute Chill-out absolute relaxation massage. On the penultimate day of this wellness experience, cryotherapy for 25 minutes and an exfoliation and wrap to purify and oxygenate body and mind. To culminate, a 50-minute On The Rocks hot stone massage will be performed, with a combination of bergamot oil and volcanic stone pressure rejuvenating and liberating the body.
The proposal includes light breakfast with the stay, access to the thermal pools, sauna, Turkish bath, relaxation area, 24 hour gym.
