AstralPool's wellness division was responsible for designing and equipping the balneotherapy area of the Banyan Tree Costa Navarino hotel that is currently being built in Greece and whose opening has been planned for 2012. Located in the Peloponnese region, to the southwest of the country, it will cover an area of 825 m2, which will make it one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe.

A wide range of health, wellbeing and beauty treatments

The thalassotherapy centre will offer a wide range of health, wellbeing and beauty treatments based on the use of seawater and other substances taken from the marine environment, such as seaweed and mud, as therapeutic agents. The facility is divided into four areas: temperature area, water area, relaxation area and treatment area.

The water area is at the heart of the facility and a therapeutic circuit has been designed made up of three swimming pools with leisure water features such as cascades and massage jets. In addition, two floatariums have been included in which one is able to experience the healing and anti-stress effect of zero gravity.

Next comes the temperature area that has heat fixtures, a sauna, steam bath, and a Roman bath as well as a cold chamber with an ice fountain. There are also showers that provide a number of options (cold shower, hot and cold, nebulised and Scottish).

The relaxation area is found next to the temperature area and has been specially adapted for colour therapy with LED lighting and heated loungers.

In the final stage of the circuit, there is a treatment area in which users can take advantage of the massage cabins with Vichy showers, Kneipp showers and hydrotherapy baths.

All of the facilities at the Banyan Tree Costa Navarino hotel's thalassotherapy centre have been specially designed to be used with seawater. AstralPool's wellnessdivision has designed a facility that is in perfect harmony with its incomparably beautiful surroundings to provide the comfortable, relaxing atmosphere that visitors seek.
