Real Spa Marine, Cascais

Tel: 351-21-096-6000

Opposite the forbiddingly named Boca do Inferno (Mouth of Hell) grotto, overlooking the windswept Atlantic coast, the Grande Real Villa Itália Hotel was once the home of Italy's exiled King Humberto II and could not be more dramatically situated. A Roman mosaic theme runs throughout the 11,000-square-foot basement spa complete with indoor and outdoor saline pools, a gym, a thermal bath, a sauna, an ice fountain, chromotherapy, a thalasso circuit, and Vichy shower rooms. Deluxe holistic massage and beauty treatments include an ultra-relaxing hot stone session with tui na, Breuss, or shiatsu ($549) plus invigorating seaweed or sea-mud wraps for the full-body exfoliation experience (massages, $130).
