The Grand Bleu Spa has opened at Le Monumental Palace in Porto, Portugal.

The 350sqm space has a heated indoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath, relaxation area and three treatment rooms. Other facilities include a gym and an Immunity Bar.

With an aim to be ‘a constant ally in skincare and wellbeing’, the spa is located in the heart of Porto’s downtown on the lower ground floor of Le Monumental Palace Porto, a five-star Maison Albar hotel.

The in-house team at Grand Bleu Spa – called healers – will personalise treatments to the needs of each guest. Therapies on offer include Ayurvedic massage, geothermal massage and facials.

“We never wanted to create a spa with an ephemeral experience. We believe in wellbeing as a continuous process, where treatments with specialised professionals and high-quality products represent a high point on this path.”

Susana Queirós

Spa manager, Grand Bleu Spa

“It’s only by having partners with the reputation and expertise of ignae and Augustinus Bader that this goal is possible,” said Susana Queirós, spa manager at Grand Bleu Spa, who oversees a team of five.

Exclusive ignae treatments

Treatments will use ignae and Augustinus Bader products with a focus on holistic wellbeing and regeneration.

Created in the Azores, ignae associates itself with the triad of nature, luxury and sustainability. Its products use the properties of the hot springs in Terra Nostra Park and Azorean iodine.

Signature ignae treatments include the Digital Detox, which offers a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques with Azorean aromatherapy oils and products from its Blue Light range.
