Small but perfectly formed, this Eixample basement space is waiting to be discovered – it only opened in 2015. The facilities are modest, with just a spa pool and a sauna, but it’s warm, welcoming and reasonably priced: €45 gets you an hour on the spa circuit, 40 minutes of Ayurvedic massage with hot oil, plus a glass of cava. Cheers!

Worst spa experience ever. My boyfriend and I got a couples massage package. Our massage therapists were clearly not professionals who attended a real massage school. They did the same moves over and over and went way too fast. They repeatedly applied pressure to the spine which is dangerous. My back has not felt the same since I left as there is pain on my left side when I walk now. They left us dripping in oil at the end. Our package was supposed to include time in the spa area (jacuzzi, steam room, sauna) but they didn't inform us this was closed due to plumbing issues until after the massage. We had already paid so they offered another 20 minutes of massage instead which we took since we had no other choice. My massage therapist pulled a bunch of my hair out when she tried to tie my hair up and when she massaged my scalp. Additionally they made no attempt to ask us what we wanted and if we had any issues before the massage which definitely affected the quality of the massage. Waste of money!
