Spain has some great relaxation holidays, from yoga in Ibiza to meditation in the desert of Tabernas and now it boasts its very first beer spa.
Beer aficionados and relaxation lovers can now combine their two passions at the Beer Spa Granada, which has just opened in the historic city of Granada, southern Spain.
It offers guests the chance to plunge into beer baths and enjoy massages, facials and other beauty treatments that all use beer as a major ingredient.
The beer baths include ingredients common in beer such as yeast, hops and barley, as well as natural enhancers such as cinnamon.
According to the spa’s website, beer has “medicinal and therapeutic properties that make it the ideal ingredient for any spa treatment”.
An hour-long beer circuit, it includes a beer bath, beer sauna and relaxing on a bed of barley. The session, which costs €45 (£40, $55) also includes a tasting of the local Alhambra beer and a traditional aperitif.
It is said to have several beneficial qualities, from stress reduction and improving blood circulation to improving skin condition and providing essential vitamins.
Extra treatments include a full body massage using hops oil and yeast.
