The Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz Hideaway Spa in Gozo

Ayuverda at The Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz Hideaway Spa Gozo – Malta:

The spa which boasts itself as one of the best marine care centres in the Mediterranean offering Thalgo Marine treatments is spread over a staggering 1700 square metres in an idyllic country-side setting with 31 treatment rooms.

Thalgo marine treatments are very rich in minerals and restore the balance and overall well-being. For this treatment, micronized marine algae are obtained through a patented micronisation process and these have penetration capacities. They are 100% natural and have a very high concentration in trace elements which provide general revitalisation. They are also known for their action as a slimming precursor.

However, my fascination with the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz Hideaway Spa is the various ayuverda packages it has on offer. Ayuverda literally means the science of life and this sacred literature of India, the ancient science of life, which has existed for five thousand years is valid today, more than ever at the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz Hideaway Spa. A fully qualified Indian Ayuverda doctor and his six assistants put five thousand years of wisdom Kerala region of India at your disposal. Consultation with Ayuverda doctor is free of charge because the medicine and system used is strictly personalised and the exact treatment can only be decided after a detailed consultation with the doctor.

The treatments which range from oil therapies, rejuvenation therapy, body slimming, aphrodisiac therapy, skin care, beauty care, mental well being, Panchakarma treatment as well as individual treatments like massages and packages with herbs and warm oils are set to make you leave your stressed everyday life behind.

There are about 17 ayuverda treatments with a variety of 20 massages. For a period of 5 to 21 days, the aphrodisiac treatment can increase your sexual vigour and virility. This treatment is effective for impotence, sex hormone disorders, libido and many sexual ailments. The treatment includes massages, detoxification and time-tested herbal formulas. There are also intake decoctions which you will have to follow for 21 days but the cost is included in the package. The cost of the aphrodisiac treatment varies from 5 days at Lm285 to Lm978 for 21 days*.

Another interesting treatment is the body slimming package. From the perspective of Ayuverda, losing weight is not about starving or suppressing the appetite. It is about balancing your fat metabolism. You do not have to starve yourself or exercise till you drop. Balance is the key. Treatments are tailor-made and they include massages with special herbal powders and internal herbal medicine. I am told that there can be a possible weight reduction of approximately 5-8 kilos in three weeks and that the effect of slimming may show only after a week. The cost for the body slimming treatment starts at Lm231 for 3 days to Lm 1120 for 21 days*.
