Health and wellness


The hydrotherapy benefits of Jacuzzi hot tubs are well documented. The combination of warm water and massage jets soothes and penetrates the body’s muscles, improving circulation and allowing complete relaxation and relief from aching muscles and joints.

What better way to relax and unwind than a panoramic roof-top terrace Jacuzzi, with a stunning view of Mindelo and all included in the cost of your room?

Infra-red sauna

Soothe your aching muscles in our infra-red sauna, through extra heat penetration that relaxes your body.

Unlike traditional wood-burning saunas which operate at high temperatures, infrared saunas are heated using incandescent infra-red heat lamps. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turns warms your body. An infra-red sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you,

providing the same health benefits as traditional saunas but at lower temperatures.This is beneficial for those who cannot tolerate high temperatures.

Infra-red saunas enhance relaxation, detoxification, lower blood pressure, circulation and weight loss.

Traditional Balinese Massage

Our professional therapist, Prem Pipiet can help relieve you of any stress and strains you might experience.

This traditional massage will leave you refreshed and relaxed. The technique of skin rolling, long kneading strokes, acupressure and foot massage are well known for their renewing effects on the body. It relieves tension, improves blood circulation and relaxes the body, mind and spirit. The treatment is most popular in Bali, Indonesia, Pipiet’s birth place, and has been passed on from one generation to the next. Pipiet is also a certified stress therapist.
