There’s hardly a shortage of spa on this ever-pampered strip of Sardinian sand that’s home to rejuvenating oases at the Cala di Volpe, Romazzino and Pitrizza. But of all the conglomerates and hotels operating spas in Porto Cervo, Blu Mediterraneo by Acqua di Parma is perhaps the most glamorous. Located at the Porto Cervo Marina and Yacht Club, a mix of 70/30 women to men arrive to a bright and airy reception with glass-enclosed boutique and perky receptionist that checks-in visitors to selected appointments.
If arriving in mid-August, try to book appointments at least a week in advance to avoid being put on a wait-list that's almost pointless.
Services at Blu Mediterraneo begin with a selection of Acqua di Parma’s Italian-theme scents that guide the overall spa experience. After that visitors are sequestered into sparkling locker rooms with green and blue mosaic tiles surrounded whirlpool, sauna and steam rooms. Treatments include a variety of body treatments like Swedish massage and slimming wraps as well as signature facials and manicure or pedicures. The Spa Chakra Group, owned by LVMH and one of the world’s top luxury spa operators, runs the spa in conjunction with Acqua di Parma meaning top-notch aestheticians and clinical technicians.
