Aquensis: Escape to t ...

Housed in a beautiful period building that once housed the old baths of the city, Aquensis , the Bagnères-de-Bigorre thermal spa is the ideal place to enjoy a few hours of well-being . Summer or winter, lovers , family , friends or solo , here we take the time to think of ourselves , and just self. Rich in trace elements such as calcium, magnesium and sulphates, the hot water that springs from the sources of Bagnères-de-Bigorre has antalgic, relaxing and relaxing properties .

The relaxation area, two floors of pure well being

Upon arrival, this huge solid wood frame will attract your attention. It supports the glazed roof that brings natural light in the middle of the large pool of 300m2 in the center of the building.

I go to the locker room to put on the soft bathrobe that was given to me at the reception. I enter the pleasantly warm thermal water (between 33 and 35 degrees) and I navigate between the different animations: hot tubs , counter currents , curtain of water and other massage jets .

Then I head to the Pool Relaxation , nestled in a subdued atmosphere . When immersing your ears, you will enjoy Jazz music played under water in the midst of hydromassage ; a moment of absolute relaxation ...

The hammam , next door, in its authentic decor with warm colors and geometric patterns, is composed of several vaulted rooms, which will make you, for a moment, travel to the traditions of the East . At the exit, a funny old style tap, delivers a delicious mint tea at will, enough to rehydrate after this detoxifying break .

Now go up the elevator to the terrace on the fourth floor. There, two traditional Finnish saunas await you on each side of a big wooden barrel filled with cold water. Outside, lie down for a few moments on one of the deck chairs on the large wooden terrace , and enjoy the singing birds and the breathtaking views of the Pyrenees , and all without any opposite. There is enough to let go to a nap ...

Escape the time of a personalized treatment

It's time for my custom massage . I go to the 2nd floor of the building by placing my magnetic bracelet in the place provided for this purpose in the elevator. Clémentine, a smiling girl, settles me in a quiet massage room , under a very soothing light .

To live the experience that suits you best, you will be able to choose the essential oils diffused , the pressure of the massage , and the parts of the body that you wish to privilege or avoid. I close my eyes and let myself go to a moment of pure relaxation ... When I reopen them an hour later, I feel like cotton. Clementine offers me a hot drink that I enjoy peacefully on a deckchair overlooking the large pool . Next time, I will try a duo treatment . Christmas is coming, it's a great gift idea for one of my loved ones! Whether it's a hot tub , a make-up between girlfriends or a moment of complicity mother-daughter , Aquensis has a relaxing package for every situation.
