Ahhh…who’s up for a little rest and relaxation?
Come on, you deserve it. Whether you’re getting off a flight and your body could use a little love after those cramped airplane seats, or you just need a break, a spa is always a good idea.
Luckily, Barcelona is home to plenty of great spas where you can truly kick back, relax, and enjoy yourself.
Certainly, One Week In Barcelona is a decent time to throw in some relax-time. There should be always some time left for romance in life. I even collected 54 beautiful romantic things to do in Barcelona.
This article is part of my big guide to One Week In Barcelona.
I love to share my knowledge about my city.
Grab your fluffiest bathrobe and get ready for some serious pampering. Here it goes, the list of the best spas in Barcelona for 2020.
We kick off with a stunning one…
1. Aire de Barcelona
Inspired by Ancient Greek and Roman bath traditions, this is located in beneath the Born district where centuries ago housed the city’s walls.
It’s been beautifully restored and filled with a series of pools and baths where you can truly unwind.
They also offer massages, aromatherapy, water rituals, and more.
Occasionally, they’ll offer a more unique experience, like a wine bath with a head and scalp massage.
Little trick: Find the best deals directly with Atrapalo (Spanish website only).
2. Ambrosia Spa
Steps away from the elegant Passeig de Gràcia, Ambrosia Spa boasts luxurious installments and the latest in the world of well-being.
They use organic products in their range of beauty and well-being treatments, and their massage offerings are particularly good.
They offer men’s and women’s spa rituals.
Good to know: I also recommend staying near Passeig de Gracia, a great area! Here’s my guide to best places to stay in Barcelona
3. Aqua Urban Spa
Winner of the Best Urban Spa Award, the Aqua Urban Spa prides itself on offering personalized treatment to each and every one of their clients.
They offer hydrotherapy and massages, as well as facial and body treatments.
Their whole approach is about treating “Balance as a lifestyle” and specializing treatments to individuals. They also have a facility at Terminal 1 in the airport (Aqua Salon Spa) to start off your next trip on a relaxed note.
4. Bali Spirit Spa
This spa momentarily whisks you away from Barcelona to Bali on an experience for all your senses.
Using over 20 types of Balinese massage and inspired by the Indonesian spirit, they offer exclusive services tailored to your needs and wants.
You can also enjoy cocktails for a truly indulgent day, as well as book special events for girls’ nights out or for a romantic couples’ evening.
5. Bliss Barcelona (closed!)
Update: Bliss Spa Barcelona is permanently closed!
The aim of Bliss is to give you a truly stress-free experience, and it would be hard to feel stressed out in such peaceful surroundings.
With expert massage therapists and beauty consultants on hand, you’ll leave glowing inside and out.
The finishing touch of complementary Cava and brownies makes it all the nicer.
6. Cowshed Relax
Part of the Soho House Barcelona members’ club and hotel, the Cowshed Spa is based on the concept of a traditional Spanish pharmacy.
It’s spread out across four treatment rooms plus an indoor pool, and the treatments focus on using natural products to get you looking and feeling your very best.
The spa is open to the public, though it can be booked for private events.
7. Ku-nu Spa
This new and cozy spa isn’t the biggest spa in the city, but that works in its favor, lending it an intimate air where you’ll feel right at home in their pools, saunas, Jacuzzi, steam rooms, and more.
The music and lighting lend it a modern, romantic touch that makes it perfect for enjoying with your partner.
For travelers, they offer a jet lag facial.
The Flotarium is a bit different from your standard spa, as it offers flotation therapy sessions in individual pools that give you the feeling of weightlessness.
After 10 minutes of chilled-out music to get you in the mood. You float in total silence for the rest of the session.
Good to know: this can also be done in complete darkness if you wish.
9. Marítim Esport Talassa
This is the first place in Catalonia that used seawater treatments (officially called “thalassotherapy”), and the tradition is still going strong.
The installations include five pools of varying temperature, saunas, a steam room, and high-pressure jets to help wash away any aches and pains.
The price is just under €17 for a day in the waters.
This is a great option for budget travelers who still want to indulge.
10. Mayan Luxury Spa
Taking its influence from ancient Mayan rituals and culture, this spa blends treatments for mind, body, and soul inspired by centuries past.
The products they use are modern and prestigious (from brand Anne Semonin), and the combination has led it to win the World Luxury Spa Awards three years running.
They offer face and body treatments, saunas, massages, signature rituals, manicures and pedicures, and depilation services. They also have a few packages for kids and teens.
11. Rambla130 Urban Spa
This urban spa in the heart of the city offer you the chance to treat your body and mind so you can completely unwind.
In addition to a range of wellness treatments such as massages, they offer manicures and pedicures and beauty treatments, as well as hair removal services. You can also take one of their exercise classes or book a session with a personal trainer.
12. Zen Zone Spa
Located inside the five-star Gran Hotel La Florida is one of the top spas in Barcelona – the Zen Zone Spa.
Using L’Ocitane’s beautifully scented products, they offer custom designed experiences for individuals and couples.
The true highlight, though, is the Water Zone with a stunning indoor and outdoor pool that gives you expansive views of the city below.
