With lush green landscapes and wide-stretching white sand beaches, The Algarve is the one of Europe’s most popular destinations. Just 30 minutes from Faro, between Albufeira and Vilamoura and overlooking the beautiful gold flag Falesia Beach, Epic Sana is a contemporary family, group and solo friendly luxury retreat.

Stylish rooms, suites, family apartments, an award winning restaurant and state of the art spa, sit amongst 8 hectares of pine forests, olive groves and fragrant lavender gardens. Take a wander through the grounds and you’ll stumble upon a Love Tree with over a hundred red and white hearts, naming couples who have taken their vows beneath.

Sayanna Wellness Spa

Inspired by the Orient, the vast Sayanna Wellness Spa spans two floors. Hypnotic music and aromatherapy candles create a sense of tranquility as soon as you enter. Boasting five swimming pools, a hammam, sauna and seven treatment rooms, the spa’s pièces de résistance are the two outdoor couples treatment pavilions, with relaxation decks and private hot tubs offering panoramic ocean views.

Adjacent to the spa sits a state of the art gym, complete with personal trainers, offering cardiovascular and weight training, and a fitness centre offering aerobics, pilates and yoga classes.

The Treatment

The Botox Effect Facial by MCCM – a luxury Spanish skincare brand – begins with an in depth a skin diagnosis. My skin was given a double deep cleanse which was then followed by a vitamin E enriched glycol acid peel to exfoliate the skin and banish dead skin cells. A super-rich hydrating collagen infused mask was placed on my face and neck, whilst a reflexology foot massage was performed.

The treatment concluded with a spritz of anti-ageing rose oil and an application of a collagen enriched serum. I definitely noticed a difference in my appearance, my skin was smoother, brighter and slightly ‘lifted’. I also felt energised from the reflexology.

Other Treatments

Savanna Revitalising – After a welcome ritual and a light exfoliation, this treatment begins with the most relaxing hot stone massage and ends with the application of a revitalising facial mask and a cold stone face massage.

Hara Shiatsu – A traditional Japanese therapy that applies gentle but deep pressure on energy points, restores balance and ensures the release of all accumulated fatigue – bringing overall wellness.

Kauai Mum – A great massage for mums-to-be, adapted to each stage of pregnancy in order to relieve all the tensions caused at each stage.

To Stay

We stayed in a sea view room with a fresh, uplifting decor of natural woods and vivid greens bring the idyllic surroundings in. All 229 rooms, suites and apartments are spacious and airy, most with a lounge area. The contemporary bathrooms boast a freestanding bath – with a clever sliding door for sea views whilst you bathe – a generous supply of Aromatherapy Associates products and multi-jet rain showers.

For families and groups there are 43 apartments in a separate annex complex, complete with a complimentary Italian brunch restaurant, so you can re-fuel little ones at any time of day. Upgrade to a duplex suite, set over two floors with a lounge, private garden area and balcony for an ultra-luxe stay.

Open Deck is great for lazy lunches. Located by swimming pool the laid back restaurant serves up fresh fish and seafood, salads – try the tofu salad with a soy and peanut dressing – and a good selection of healthy fresh vegetable juices.
