Any good places for a day spa in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria?
Talasoterapia has 2 saunas, big jacuzzi, cold water small pool and 2 other small pools. It cost 14€/h, but it’s cheaper if you book with a massage.
The spa at Hotel Reina Isabel small but OK’ish. It has anice view over Playa de Las Canteras and it has access to a rooftop pool. Indoor you have 2 saunas for 2 people each, a salt-saturated water pool, a small pool (no lanes), a dry salt sauna, and massage table, that you should book in advance. As a person used to central and north-European spas, I think the culture here is different and there isn’t infrastructure to support the same standards. But maybe someone else has had a different experience. I was staying at the hotel as a guest.
Talasoterapia has a sauna, steam bath, some pools, cold plunge and also offers massages (which are quite good from what I’ve heard, haven’t tried them). What it doesn’t necessarily have is a “relaxing atmosphere” So if that’s important I’d recommend another place.
I recently learned that Talasoterapia in Calle Padre Cueto doesn’t just have bundled entries (which are still quite expensive) but also a monthly pass for the circuito for €75 with unlimited entries up to two hours. If you enjoy sauna, ice baths, hot baths and / or waterjets – recommend it. During rush hour from about 5pm or on the weekend you usually need an appointment though.
Check out Talasoterapia Las Canteras, they have a cheap spa circuit that I enjoy and they also offer other services separately.
Are there any ice baths or cool baths on the island?
The cold bath at Talasoterapia Las Canteras is about 15° celcius,if I remember right. If you go into the really hot pool first it feels like ice.
The sign at Talasoterapia says 12° – 16° I think. It depends on the day a little, but it does the trick.
