ROOM TYPE

SLOW SPA:
Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates/yoga studio.

The SlowSpa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves. The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to our belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For Slow Spa’s signature treatments we use products that are natural and alive, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.

Slow Villas and Spa is the result of a Belgian trio, who joined forces to create a home away from home. Our goal….your happiness!
