Athenaeum Spa at Corinthia Palace to create tailored treatments for guests

The Athenaeum Spa at Corinthia Palace, Malta, is opening in April and forms the final phase of a €9 million refurbishment of the property, which began in 2018.

In a move to make treatments personalised to guests, the Athenaeum Spa will be encouraging guests to book ‘time’, rather than a specific treatment. This will enable the spa team to create tailor-made experiences that will cater to the clients’ individual needs and wellbeing goals.

Susanne Fisch, spa director at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa says: “Everything at the Athenaeum Spa centres around time – your time. We understand that creating a sense of true wellness is deeply personal, which is why we have crafted a system that no longer limits guests to one treatment, but instead enables them to reserve time and to enjoy a deeply personalised, tailor-made experience created for them in that time.”

The Athenaeum Spa will be the first and only spa in Malta to offer ESPA products and expertise, and the treatments will be shaped with a holistic philosophy to enhance both physical and emotional wellbeing.

Facilities will include seven treatment rooms – including a couple’s suite – alongside a post-treatment lounge and a terrace overlooking the hotel gardens. The spa’s “Vitality Lounge” offers an indoor and outdoor space that includes a sauna, steam room, experience showers and a relaxation deck with heated loungers where guests can relax. 

The spa’s nail lounge, offers signature gin or non-alcoholic cocktails that can be enjoyed with manicures pedicures. In keeping with the spa’s wellness philosophy, the sugar and alcohol content of each cocktail has been carefully balanced by the hotel’s bar manager.  

Spread over two floors and covering 21,000sq ft, the spa has been designed by interior designers Goddard Littlefair and inspired by its Mediterranean surroundings. 

Meanwhile, Six Senses has announced it is launching its first Italian site in Rome.
