Well, now there’s even more reason to hop on that Easyjet flight. Spabreaks.com has welcomed four new hotel spas this year in the form of Castilla Termal Balneario de Solares, Castilla Termal Balneario de Olmedo, Castilla Termal Burgo de Osma and Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena.
From thermal suites in ancient monasteries to private vineyards, the spas work exclusively with Spabreaks.com. The unique architecture, style and history of each hotel spa brings them to life.
Castilla Termal Balneario de Olmedo is on the ruins of the 12th century ancient convent of Sancti Spiritus, and is made up of three buildings.
There are two active pools using mineral-medicinal thermal water, one of them indoors and the other outdoors. In true Mediterranean style there’s even a winery on site. It’s a chance to really experience the best of Spain.
Castilla Termal Balneario de Solares on the other hand enjoys views of Spain’s sea, mountains, forests and green meadows. The waters have an ancient story dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries, although the first bathhouse was built above a natural spring in 1827.
Today the spa is a complete wellness experience with a thermal circuit inspired on the ancient baths of the roman villages. It even has a section in the spa brochure aimed at kids experiences. These include a First Massage for children ages three months to three years.
The building that houses Castilla Termal Burgo de Osma is from the 16th century and the ancient University of Santa Catalina. As a result, the hotel is infused with historic details alongside modern design.
Alongside the Renaissance cloister for example, there is a great glass dome at the centre of the building. Castilla Termal Burgo de Osma is romantic but also welcomes families. In the restaurant they use seasonal market produce in traditional Spanish cuisine, which is a particular delight.
Last but by no means least, Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena is a wonderfully elegant hotel in one Spain’s best preserved Cistercian monasteries of the 12th century. The hotel has its own organic vegetable garden, herb garden and vineyards, so food is a delight.
Of course, at the centre of the whole experience is the spa. The water at the Valbuena Spa comes from a 386 meters-deep aquifer catchment of mineral-medicinal water. In the 12th century it was used by Cistercian monks to irrigate the vineyards. These days however, it feeds the thermal circuit, a magic experience in the Treasury Chapel, also known as the San Pedro Chapel. Two hours luxuriating in this sacred space is incredibly special.
