The Relaxation Massage uses gentle, luxurious techniques to submerge the guest into total bliss that will leave the body feeling more balanced and relaxed, eliminating stress, fatigue and anxiety. The Therapeutic Massage allows guests to enjoy a moment of emotional relaxation while simultaneously enhancing their muscle tone, increasing their flexibility, and stimulating their blood circulation. This can be for a specific purpose or simply to boost overall wellbeing. In between relaxing at the hotel, guests aren’t short of things to do, including horseback rides, hiking, bicycle rides, and playing tennis. Journey through vast open space on a tame, easy-to-ride horse; trek on foot among the fauna and flora; or bicycle along the trails on the Alentejo plain, taking in the purity of the air, the trees, the mountains, the birds, and the sea. When not adventuring through the surrounding nature, a game of tennis or padel can be played on the nearby courts. Then, about 25 minutes away from the hotel is the largest expanse of beaches in the country and the third largest in the world, with crystal clear waters and golden sands making up a jaw-dropping coastal landscape. Travellers can discover the likes of Aberta Nova beach, Comporta beach, Carvalhal beach, Pego beach, Galé beach, Tróia beach, Bico das Lulas beach, Melides beach, and São Torpes beach. For those who have a curiosity for exploring local culture, they can discover treasures and stories, traditions, art and craftmanship which mirror the souls of people or even civilisations of times passed. The region’s charming little towns and cities are bursting at the seams with historical housing, churches, castles and monuments, and also offer the opportunity to join festivals and pilgrimages in order to authentically experience the rich culture of Alentejo.
