Symbolizing the relief and comfort provided by nature, the luxurious Asian chain Banyan tree spa can be found in Portugal, more precisely in Estoril, a stylish and trendy town with a beautiful coastline, making it a great spot for Spa breaks in Lisbon Coast.

Wellness Spa Breaks in Lisbon Coast


Did you know that you can find one of the most internationally renowned spa chains in Lisbon? Benefit from the holistic approach of the Banyan tree spa which focuses on spiritual, mental and physical harmony and presents an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices.

Since all spa therapists working in Portugal are formally trained in the in-house training academy in Thailand you can experience the traditional Asian healing therapies with the same level of expertise. A comprehensive spa menu is available, including the following types of massages:

  • Balinese Massage – a medium to strong massage where the therapist applies deep thumb and palm pressure with slow, firm, rhythmic strokes to uplift the senses and ease muscle tension.
  • Thai Essence – medium to strong massage adapted from traditional Thai massage techniques which improves overall flexibility from top to toe. Palms and thumbs are applied to pressure points to relieve tired muscles and to boost energy.
  • Thai Classic – a perfect mix of subtle stretching with rhythmic massaging compressions to balance the body system and stimulate energy flow. Applies deep palm strokes on the back with delicate stretching.
  • Gentle Touch – a soft to medium massage where soothing, long strokes and thumb pressure are applied in tandem to relax the body.

Combine Spa Break with Exercise, Yoga and Pilates


Additionally, you can enjoy modern wellness & fitness centers featuring premium spa circuits, dynamic heated pools and several Hydrotherapy treatments from Vichy to jet showers.

Get some exercise in the fully equipped gym – supervised by a certified personal trainer or try one of the daily group fitness activities from Yoga to Pilates. Other option is to simply go for a walk on the beach, enjoy the vistas and get some vitamin D.

Research shows that regular exercise is an effective, safe and natural treatment to improve mood swings and fight depression.  Exercising starts a biological cascade of events that results in many health benefits such as protecting against heart disease and diabetes, improving sleep, and lowering blood pressure.

High-intensity exercise releases the body’s feel-good chemicals called endorphins but for most of us the real value is in low-intensity exercise sustained over time since it releases proteins called neurotrophic or growth factors, which cause nerve cells to grow and make new connections.
