The spa's four thalassotherapy pools have different temperatures, jet speeds and mineral contents and are open to all hotel guests.
The hotel also has the less formal Bistro Bar & Restaurant in a fresco-covered room with an outdoor terrace, a bar and cigar room in a flower-decked winter garden, in - and outdoor pools and the new La Via del Sale ('the Salt Path') Medical and Beauty Spa, which specialises in salt-based anti-ageing and skin-renewal thalassotherapy treatments.
