Vila Vita Parc opens first Sisley Spa in Portugal
POSTED 15 Feb 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa, a clifftop resort in Portugal’s Algarve, has launched a new Spa by Sisley, the first Sisley-branded spa in Portugal. The 17,250sq ft spa is now open, and the completion marks the culmination of the resort’s renovations, which have taken place over the last four years.

The new Vila Vita Spa by Sisley, housed within the existing spa building, features a contemporary new design inspired by the region’s sea caves, including natural stone and restful tones of blue and green to reflect the many hues of the Atlantic Ocean.

The new space comprises 14 treatment rooms, all equipped with the latest Gharieni treatment beds, a bright and spacious fitness studio with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the hotel’s lush gardens and offering both group and private sessions – including aerial yoga, power yoga, and chakra meditation – as well as the existing HYPOXI* Studio, a body contouring method.

Launching in spring 2019, there will also be three new spa suites designed for guests who are interested in booking several treatments and private fitness classes, as they can move easily between their suite and the spa.

Guests will be able to choose from a curated menu of Sisley’s Phyto-Aromatic facial and body treatments, all of which have their own specific massage techniques designed to meet the needs of each skin type. Fashionizer Spa has supplied the uniforms for the spa.

Signature treatments include the Golden Quartz Treatment, which is a hot sand therapy conducted on Gharieni’s MLX Quartz bed and combined with the relaxing sound of singing bowls. The treatment includes various massage techniques alternated with small heated crystal bags to take guests to a deeper level of relaxation, while the warm quartz cradles and cocoons the body.

A traditional Philippine’s Hilot Massage is an intensive full-body and head massage, using heated coconut oil mixed with ginger. After the massage, warm banana tree leaves – traditionally known to take the tightness of the muscles – are placed to cover the entire back area.

Vila Vita Parc is also launching a number of spa and wellness programmes themed around ‘Detox’, ‘Fitness’, ‘Relaxation’ and ‘Beauty’.

Aside from Sisley treatments, guests will also be able to enjoy manicures and pedicures from the British brand Margaret Dabbs.
