Set in the luxurious Hotel Urso, the Urso Spa has a team of spa therapists who can advise you on their wide range of treatments, including those tailored to women, men and the seasons, to really make the most of your visit. The spa features three treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy pool and an oriental steam hammam. Choose between perfecting, hydrating or brightening facials and full-body massages that use a range of techniques including the volcanic shells massage, which uses warm lava shells that reduce stress and relax the muscles.

Hidden in the converted cellars of a building in central Madrid, this traditional Arab bath offers a variety of massages using traditional oils and a water circuit that takes you through three different temperature pools. Feel your stress melt away as you lie back in the hot and temperate water pools, then feel invigorated as you plunge into the cold water pool. The water circuit also includes the steam room and relaxation room, where you can sip green tea among the Moorish-style arches for the ultimate chilled experience. The hammam is quieter earlier in the day and on weekdays.

3. Esenzias, Madrid

Hidden down a street just off the bustling Puerta del Sol, Esenzias is a pilates and yoga studio, spa and massage centre all under one roof, where you can indulge in a range of relaxing activities. Its Onsen spa is a Japanese style spa – its compact size means that it can be used by a maximum of eight people, which ensures it is usually quiet. The hour-long spa circuit includes a jacuzzi, a cold water pool and a wooden, Japanese-style pool. Esenzias is also a good place for a reasonably priced massage; from Monday-Thursday a 30-minute treatment is just €21.

4. Chi Spa, Madrid

Spa

This luxury day spa is a relaxation and wellness space that offers a range of treatments to make you look and feel at your very best. Located close to Retiro Park, the spa offers 12 different facials, eight massages, eight body treatments and hair treatments including a hair detox to strip away impurities and a hydration treatment. A good place to pop in and come out feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.

5. Float Experience, Madrid

Perhaps one of Madrid’s stranger spa experiences, this spa is centred around the practice of floating in pools of water filled with Epsom salts, which give them the same properties as the dead sea, allowing visitors to experience weightlessness and float easily without any effort at all. The spa also offers a range of massages and reflexology, the ideal accompaniment to time spent floating letting your worries melt away. The experience of floating is so relaxing, according to the spa, that one hour of floating is equivalent to four hours of sleep.

6. Anssora Spa, Madrid

For a spa with a view, head to the Anssora Spa, on the 29th floor of the Hotel Eurostars, inside one of Madrid’s tallest skyscrapers. The compact spa has a hydrotherapy circuit and a choice of massages including deep tissue massage, sports massage and hot stone massage. If you fancy a more romantic experience you can opt for some Cava and chocolate-covered strawberries for a relaxing date night high above Madrid.
