We stayed for a detox treatment week at christmas and I must say I was incredibly impressed by the smiling helpful and professional staff in the spa, hotel and restaurant. We felt pampered, spoiled and it was so well organized and calm - it was perfect. The hotel & spa are clean, decorated with roman marble busts in the roman...

A fantastic place to go to if you just want to recuperate, relax and be pampered. And if you have a car should you feel the need to venture outside. We were lucky enough to stay at a very quiet time and were almost the only guests in the spa / hotel, and had excellent service. Staff extremely friendly. Good...

We just returned from an wonderful stay and the hotel was stunning. It is steeped in so much history and the location is amid the rustic Spanish heritage. The spa was fantastic and still based around the original workings and full of healthy options. Imagine going to the Romans Baths BUT being allowed to use the original facilities, not something...

It was almost by chance that we ended up in this beautiful Carratraca spa today. On seeing the signpost for the town whilst en route to a hiking excursion in the nearby Chorro area, my better half remembered that a friend had told him of her fantastic time at the spa in this charming little village.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Padierna Thermas Hotel will be regarded as the finest retreat experience of Holistic Healing in Europe. With a fine tuned combination of thermal bath treatments, chromo therapy, aromtherapy and organic cuisine. This historical spa retreat proposes three main and distinct healing programs to attract today's experienced spa aficionados: Balance, Relaxation and Detoxification. The hotel is only 45 minutes from Malaga International airport which receives all the major international carriers from Europe. Major US cities connect via Madrid or Barcelona. The town of Carratraca is situated in the northern part of the Guadalhorce Valley, between Ardales and Álora at an altitude of 540 metres right in the heart of the Sierra Blanquilla. The small and quaint village of Carratraca has been known as the Diamond of Malaga for its sulfur natural spring water famous since Roman times. Villa Padierna Thermas Hotel is set in an historic boutique building now completely restored and traces its roots to the early 1800's when the extraordinary healing powers of the sulfur waters and mountain springs surrounding the tiny village became almost legendary in their reputation. The healthful effects of the springs were discovered early on by the Romans, and centuries later by the Moorish settlers.A guesthouse was built between 1830 and 1832 to host a visit of King Fernando VII of Spain. Word soon spread of the therapeutic effects of the baths and mineral spring waters, and members of Europe's aristocracy quickly made Carratraca theri personal retreat.The Thermas was at the height of fashionable travel in the 19th century when it attracted such famous visitors as Lord Byron, Rainer Maria Rilke and Empress Marie Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III among others.Now stunningly refurbished, keeping the historical beauty of this neo-classical building, guests can have a great experience for the first time in a historical setting. A warm welcome in the cozy lobby of the Hotel, or if weather allows, in the Andalusian Patio. ... more   less
