Villa del Conde Thalasso
On check in at our hotel in Gran Canaria, at the architecturally amazing 5* Boabab Hotel in Maspalomas we booked our activities for the week. As our flight home was late in the evening we decided to visit The Villa Del Conde Spa on our last day so we could leaving the island feeling completely chilled. The first treat we were given on arrival was rubber spa sandals; after a few days walking around in flip flops, sandals and bare feet, wearing them felt like a mini foot massage. Tiny rubber bubbles on the foot bed massage your feet with each step. I even missed them so much when I got home that I ordered myself a pair online.
Choosing to go to the spa on our last day was perfect way to end our trip, I felt completely relaxed for our journey home. – Jen McKay
At the Spa guests are provided with a robe, towel, shower cap and spa sandals to use for the day. The shower cap was to be worn throughout all the experience rooms, I guessed making us all look pretty silly was for an important reason such as hygiene. I began the spa experience with the heated stone beds, and within seconds I felt relaxed and a little a little exhausted so decided to take a little 10 minute nap while sporting my robe shower cap, rubber shoes and towel wrapped round my calf’s so I didn’t burn my legs – really wish my friend I had taken a picture. After my 10 minute nap we continued with the rest of the thalasso experience.
Seawater pool where the thalasso therapy circuit starts. The water’s heat and strength are used to provide different types of aquatic body massages. There are underwater bubble beds where the epidermis and the deeper skin layers are massaged from the neck to the toes resulting in deep relaxation as well as strengthening of the muscles and joints. Around the pool you can find different heated ergonomic beds inviting you to rest.

Showers with different water experience programs to be selected by the guest. The first shower simulates a smooth tropical rain on the body providing at the same time a fruity fragrance. During the rain fall the shower is illuminated by a warm red light. It has also got water jets providing a pleasing lumbar massage.
The second shower provides a cold water fog accompanied by a smooth fragrance of fresh mint and a bluish illumination. It is the ideal place to cool off after using the sauna or the steam baths. In this shower there is also a water jet massaging the cervical area.
We recommend using this facility after the sauna and the steam baths as it stimulates the circulatory system.
