Thalasso Spa – Vila Baleira Resort

According to scientifically proven studies, Porto Santo and the waters that bathe its coast are rich in iodine, calcium, magnesium and strontium… These elements help offset the deficiency in mineral salts that stress and fatigue cause in the human body, thereby contributing to the nervous system’s speedy recovery.

The word “thalasso” comes from the ancient Greek and means “sea”.

Concept

Thalassotherapy is one of the oldest, most natural and most effective anti-stress treatments in the world. Fully compatible with the human organism, the treatment is based on baths with sea water heated to 37ºC, which allows the marine elements, present in large quantities in the sea water, to be absorbed through the skin. Thalassotherapy also helps prevent or alleviate many diseases related to rheumatism and arthritis, as well as bone and muscle problems.
The Baleira Thalasso & Spa is currently the only thalassotherapy centre on the island of Porto Santo. The spa is not inside the hotel, but it is within the Vila Baleira Complex and is the largest and one of the best-equipped in the country in terms of balneotherapy. It offers a vast range of showers and massages, as well as pools, sauna, Turkish bath, a water-walking pool and more. The high quality of the treatments offered to users of the Baleira Thalasso & Spa Centre, and the variety of combined programmes are a delight for our guests.
Take advantage of your holidays to take care of yourself. Visit our centre and choose one of the programmes on offer. Make your stay even better by pampering your body.

Porto Santo Sands

The history of the Vila Baleira Resort is intrinsically connected to the therapeutic properties of the Porto Santo sands, this being the reason for our resort’s existence.
The beach on the island of Porto Santo is made up of carbonate biogenic sand, whose physical, chemical and thermal properties allow it to be used, with proven success, in naturotherapy process. Indeed, these sands have been used successfully for centuries in the treatment of rheumatic and orthopaedic diseases and other physical conditions.
At the Vila Baleira Resort, we have put together a sand therapy programme for you, which includes medical supervision and a specific section of the spa entirely dedicated to sand bathing and psammo therapy in a totally relaxing ambience.
