Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, Malta will this month debut its brand-new Athenaeum Spa. A Mediterranean-inspired oasis offering a bespoke approach to wellbeing, the spa has been curated to provide an unparalleled holistic health experience, drawing on both global and local expertise, alongside a highly personalised service tailored to each guest’s needs.
Inspired by the relaxed charm of its Mediterranean setting, the design evokes a sense of calm and serenity. Spread over two floors and covering 2,000 square metres, The Athenaeum Spa is located in the heart of the Mediterranean island of Malta.
Guests are encouraged to book ‘time’ rather than a set treatment, enabling tailor-made experiences to be created shaped around each individual guest’s wellbeing goal.
Exclusive Signature Treatments have been developed which harness the best local, all-natural ingredients evocative of the rich healing traditions of the Maltese island and its cultural heritage.
The Athenaeum Spa is also the first and only spa in Malta to offer world-renowned ESPA products, treatments and expertise. In partnership with leading skincare brand ESPA, the treatments will be guided by a holistic philosophy to enhance both physical and emotional wellbeing.
Elsewhere, the spas nail lounge, featuring Jessica products, offers pedicures and manicures with a difference. Nail treatments include signature gin or non-alcoholic cocktails to be enjoyed during treatments. Created by the hotel’s Bar Manager, Mladan Nakev, the sugar and alcohol content of each cocktail has been carefully calculated to ensure wellness is not hampered.
Facilities at The Athenaeum Spa will include seven treatment rooms, a post-treatment Serenity Lounge and a terrace overlooking the hotel gardens. Meanwhile, the Vitality Lounge provides a seamless indoor and outdoor experience, offering guests a sauna, steam room, experience showers and a relaxation deck with heated loungers.
Since opening over 50 years ago, the Corinthia Palace has become a quintessential part of Malta. Located next to the San Anton Palace, the 147-room hotel is set in tranquil gardens.
The Athenaeum Spa is the jewel in the crown of the final phase of a significant a €9 million refurbishment of the property, which began in 2018, the hotel’s 50th anniversary year, and has so far transformed the executive lounge, lobby and guest bedrooms. The hotel’s Orange Grove restaurant will also be transformed this year.
