Whether you wish to relax after a long day’s walk in the city centre, spend a romantic weekend, or simply enjoy the moment, any excuse is good to indulge in a relaxing spa, sauna, hammam, or massage experience. Here are a few suggestions to enjoy a moment of well-being in Bordeaux.
Coveted by city dwellers in search of calm and relaxation, this balneotherapy centre in Bruges includes a hammam, a sauna, as well as a 4,000-square metre indoor and outdoor swimming pool. As soon as you experience Calicéo’s massage jets, waterfalls, and jacuzzis, the hustle and bustle of the city will be a distant memory.
Regular customers will tell you that the true magic of Calicéo reveals itself at nightfall. The “Ocean of Lights” evenings are particularly enchanting, with hundreds of candles illuminating the pools. Immerse yourself in a dreamy atmosphere, reminiscent of Arabian Nights!

A wide choice of traditional care options awaits: from a simple scrub with black soap to exclusive (and even patented!) donkey milk treatments, feel free to compose your à la carte “ritual.”
Note that two days a week, Les Cent Ciels is women-only. Also good to know: the hammam houses a restaurant for 30 people. A wellness break to gift yourself or your partner.

A float pod is a bit like a large bathtub filled with water containing Epsom salt. The ensuing sensory deprivation brings your body and mind into a state of deep relaxation, close to meditation.
