The re-opening of spas is great news for anyone fatigued by the stress from the past year. When it comes to some much-needed holistic tranquility, Athenaeum Spa at Corinthia Palace is hard to beat. Here lies the perfect refuge, thrilled to have you back.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made the 2020-2021 period especially stressful, tiring and taxing. Most people are yearning for a way to relax and restore their balance and wellbeing, both physically and mentally. The answer rests at Athenaeum Spa – a blissful five-star retreat in the heart of Malta. This welcoming hideaway has been holistically designed to provide its guests with the right environment and tools to nurture both mind and body.
Living up to the high standards and luxury of the Corinthia brand, Athenaeum Spa’s focus is the quality of each guest’s experience. And that is the keyword here: experience. The spa differs from others on the island because rather than solely providing treatments, each session is a bespoke encounter tailored to suit the dynamic needs of every individual visitor.
In fact, the spa has been specifically designed to ground people. Besides its state-of-the-art facilities, the devil really is in the detail at Athenaeum. The use of wood, stone and tranquil colours throughout the spa’s rooms brings visitors back to nature and re-awakens their own inner sense of calm.
Rather than purchasing a specific treatment in advance, guests are encouraged to select time. Doing so provides them with the flexibility to adjust their treatment choice according to their feelings on the day. This is why each of the seven treatment rooms comes equipped with facilities for all treatments – from face masks to hot stones.
The spa’s unique facilities also include a thermal Vitality Suite with soothing heated marble beds, a Vitality Pool and Vitality Steam Room, showers and a sauna. The showers and pool even have water jets which leave you feeling invigorated. Besides the Vitality Suite, which can be rented for several hours, the spa also features treatment rooms, a nail bar, relaxation lounge and terrace, an indoor pool (with a Jacuzzi) and a large outdoor pool.
Athenaeum’s exceptional luxury and advanced amenities really come into their own thanks to its staff. The way in which guests are tended to and looked after is what completes the experience. After being welcomed at the doorway with a cold towel and drink, visitors can decide how to spend their time at the spa. It is indeed an outing in which the facilities are there to be used, but guests can also treat themselves to lunch in the peaceful Vitality Garden.
Maintaining excellent quality is at the forefront of all decisions taken by the spa’s team, so partnering up with companies that aspire to the same standards has been vital. In fact, to further enhance every visitor’s encounter, Athenaeum recently partnered with Amra, a British company specialising in heat-based experiences.
Together, they have launched Vitality Experience by Amra: a concept well-suited to a period when not all of us are comfortable with physical interaction yet. In the Vitality Experience, guests are presented with three premium products – a scrub, mask and cream – to use within an hour-long exclusive time slot of their choosing. Guests use these products while lying in a plastic wrap and on a warm bed within the Vitality Suite.
“It is a unique and private experience,” promises Michelle Reynolds, Athenaeum Spa’s director. “At a time when people might still be hesitant about interactions because of Covid-19, the Vitality Experience allows you to enjoy a treatment by and to yourself without having to make physical contact with a therapist.”
And what a moment to revitalize! After a year of being tied to our technologies even more than usual, there has been no better time to disconnect and treat oneself to a wholesome, healthy and nurturing experience. Athenaeum Spa is undoubtedly the perfect oasis to find this!
