Inside the ESPA Spa at L’Andana, you will live moments of absolute relaxation, a truly unique multi-sensory experience. Aromatherapy, thalassotherapy and phytotherapy, combined with the exclusive holistic ESPA treatments will revitalise your body and mind and balance your senses.
To truly understand the beauty and luxury of one of Italy’s most luxurious spas, we spoke to ESPA Expert Chiara Palmieri who works at L’Andana:
“I have been working at the spa for 2 years, ESPA differs from other brands as they are in the best spas in the world, and they collaborate with skincare specialists such as dermatologists, biochemists and aromatherapists.”
“Working in the spa means that you must have more than just a love of beauty, you must also embrace the ESPA philosophy. We mainly perform face and body treatments, and we also take care of our customers by offering a large relaxation area that consiste of a sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool and swimming pool.”
“My favourite ESPA product is the Optimal Skin Pro-Cleanser, a 3-in-1 cleanser that is exceptional as a cleanser, exfoliator and mask. It is excellent quality, provides you with nourished and illuminated skin, and is ideal to take with you when travelling.”
“My favourite part of the spa are the treatment rooms, where I can completely relax. This helps me to perform my job to the best of my ability. The most beautiful part of the resort is the exceptional view of the green hills from the golf course, where you can achieve total peace of mind by breathing in the clean air and immersing yourself in the enchanting beauty of your surroundings.”
“My favourite treatment is the Andana Signature treatment, created to provide total mind and body relaxation. This treatment begins with a ritual for the feet that purifies and relieves deep tension, followed by an effective exfoliation of the body. This exfoliator is a natural blend of mineral salts, olive oil and fresh aromatic herbs. The experience then continues with a bespoke facial and a relaxing scalp massage that removes traces of stress.”
“The best time to visit L’Andana is from March to October, when the days get longer and the surrounding nature is stunning. L’Andana is in the heart of the countryside, enveloped in beauty, light and tranquillity, allowing you to immerse yourself in the sight and smell of nature.”
“The spa is very welcoming, offering specialised luxury treatments for each client. It is a corner of paradise, perfectly suited to those who need to regenerate themselves and experience a moment of complete relaxation.”
“One of my tips to help your wellbeing is to find a few minutes in your day to relax, allows you to preserve the internal balance of yourself. It is important to exercise proper breathing, which can be combined with stretching. A relaxed and peaceful mind has much more potential.”
