The spahotel La Central is in an ideal location for relaxing; in a valley with leafy forests, by the Gavarrera river, just before it flows into the Boadella reservoir. The building, which has a turn of the century feel, helps to give the place a sense of peace and harmony.
The spa makes full use of the setting, with large picture windows giving views of the surrounding countryside on three of its four walls. So, you can glimpse green from the temperature controlled hydro massage pool, but also from the glass-fronted Finnish sauna. The facilities are completed with an aromatic steam bath holding five people and a treatment booth.
The services on offer include peelings, acupuncture, application of hot Pindas, pressotherapy and many facial treatments (balancing, anti-oxidant, lifting, pigmentation, etc.).
There is also a good range of massages: anti-cellulite, foot reflexology, geothermal, with grapes or chocolate, Shiatsu and Reiki. Finally, a special mention for the treatment with powdered pearls, which provides the skin with minerals and proteins and gives it a mother of pearl glow; and also the seaweed treatment known as marine gold, which rejuvenates and gives the skin golden tones.
The full wellbeing services can be used whether you are a hotel guest or not. The hotel has a tea lounge and a reading room, a bar with an open fire and a restaurant specialising in Empordà cooking.
