Maslina Resort, a Relais & Chateaux property with mindful luxury at its core is delighted to unveil the brand-new Pharomatiq Spa. Inspired by the healing environment of Hvar, the remarkable Pharomatiq Spa is 650sqm in size and has five treatment rooms, including one dedicated to couples, and a specialised sound healing treatment room. Drawing upon Hvar’s natural environment and flora, the Pharomatiq Spa practices a garden-to-skin wellness concept, and every indulgent treatment incorporates locally grown herbs that aid the recovery of the body and build a strong sense of mindfulness.
Unique and sustainable garden-to-skin concept
Hailed as the sunniest island in Europe, there is little wonder why charming Hvar is a haven for health and wellbeing. Since 1868, the island has been recognised as Europe’s top destination for therapeutic healing. Surrounded by heavenly scented lavender fields and rugged olive groves, the Pharomatiq Spa promotes the unique restorative powers of the island with a sustainable garden-to-skin inspired menu. This menu features home-grown herbs and locally sourced essential oils made by luxury skincare specialists L’aventure en Primitivance-superpowered by Dalmatian botanicals. L’aventure en Primitivance’s luxury Belle de Jour Serum Visage utilises the power of the ancient Immortelle flower. This native plant has miraculous anti-inflammatory properties that help skin regain its strength and suppleness. Combined with local olive leaf extract, pomegranate seed oil and jasmine extract, this traditional flower produces a super serum that restores your youthful glow. Aligned with Maslina Resort’s mindful luxury philosophy, all products are 100% natural and cruelty-free. Skilled therapists tailor these luxurious oils to the specific needs of individuals so that each guest experiences the very best of Hvar’s natural remedies.
The spacious 650sqm spa contains five contemporary treatment rooms exceptionally designed for both individuals and couples. From sound therapy to massage and fitness rooms, every detail of the spa has been carefully crafted with gentle relaxation in mind. The wet area consists of a state-of-the-art Finnish sauna, steam room with essential oils and activated showers with LED light therapy. This restful ambience flows through the interior into outdoor space, where the relaxation garden provides the perfect place to bask under the glorious Croatian sun.
