Estrela Health & Beauty

Name of spa

Estrela Health & Beauty, Praia da Luz

Style

Modern combined spa and health club, with the treatment rooms located beyond the main pool and other communal areas. There is no natural light in the salon, but the warm neutral colour scheme and the minimal decor with wooden floors throughout give a sense of space.

Ambience

If you are looking to relax for an hour or two, you’ve come to the right place. Once the glass doors that separate the salon from the rest of the facility are closed, you enter into a peaceful area that is filled with calming background music piped into each room.

The treatments

The product range used is called Essence, and oils from the range can be individually mixed to suit a client’s needs. Speciality treatments include Full Body Deep Tissue and Relaxing massages. The spa runs regular promotions, so keep an eye on the website.

The facilities

The beauty salon is part of the Estrela da Luz resort complex, and facilities include the changing and shower area, 15m indoor pool, gym, fitness studio, Jacuzzi and sauna, as well as the Hugo Beaty Bar which has free wi-fi, flat screen TV, a small computer room and a full bar that serves food all day.

Guests who book treatments have use of the pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, but the three outdoor pools, tennis courts and pool bar are reserved for guests of the resort only.

Why do you like it?

The team is small but very experienced, with attention to detail paramount. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome, and this, coupled with the chance of using the other facilities on your visit means you could quite easily find yourself staying for longer than your treatment time.

What could be improved?

If you visit the salon during the summer months, expect the communal areas to be busy. Large towels for the pool will be supplied at the reception area but there is a minimal charge for this.

When to go?

It’s a good place to go if you want to treat a friend or family member for a pampering session, or to just take a few hours out for yourself to relax with a massage.

Insider knowledge

Check with reception for the timetable of classes and prices in the fitness studio.

Location

Estrela da Luz, Rua Manuel Augusto Alves Catarino, Praia da Luz.

Directions from the A22: Exit at Lagos (exit 1) and follow the signs for Vila do Bispo/Sagres. Take the first exit off the main roundabout and follow the main signpost for Luz (not the feeder). You’ll pass a campsite (on the right hand side) and 100m or so past that you’ll see a feeder for Luz (left hand side). Follow the road down to the roundabout, drive straight through. Take the first right, then first left. Estrela da Luz is on your left hand side and there is plenty of parking around the perimeter of the complex.
