The bold-type epithet which follows Basiliani in the name of the hotel, namely 'Resort & Spa', will leave you in no doubt as to the focus of this hotel. With a total floor area of 2,000m≤, expense was clearly not an issue when it came to the well-being centre here, which almost makes the hotel an annex to the spa rather than the other way round. From basic cosmetic treatments to massages, from the Finnish sauna to the hammam, plus the sensory shower, the coldwater pool, and the heated pool, the 3 floors of the spa are popular all year round with a clientele that simply can't resist a weekend of pampering. Couples, newlyweds, or even just close friends may be pleased to know that the spa also incorporates a special, more private area where couples can enjoy the benefits of a good soap treatment or a massage, before lying back in the peaceful surroundings of the relaxation area with a cup of herbal tea.
Apart from the relaxing atmosphere of the spa, the hotel also boasts terraced gardens where olive trees, flowers, shrubs, and succulent plants grow through a mosaic of little stone walls. At the bottom of the slope outside you will find the peaceful swimming pool area, surrounded by a row of exotic straw and wood parasols but unfortunately arranged facing the suburban landscape, and notably the raised bridge of the nearby road. You're better off turning to face the other direction, where you'll find the sea peeping through the pine forest before you. Beyond the bathing guests you'll be able to see the cubes that make up this extraordinary complex and where the guest rooms, reception, and restaurant are located.
