Lisa BrownBy Lisa Brown

The grand palace style hotel has not only played host to royalty and Hollywood gliteratti over the years, Palacio Estoril also featured in the James Bond classic On Her Majestys Secret Service. Head Concierge Jose had a walk on part in the film when he was just 18 years old and gives me a warm welcome on arrival.

Built in 1930 the hotel retains many of the characteristics of days gone by. There’s an ambience of exclusivity on entering – from the stunning white facade and beautiful gardens to the elegant classic decor, dotted with fragrant floral displays and glittering chandeliers. Staff are warm and attentive – most have worked here for decades and clearly love what they do.

Banyan Tree Spa Estoril

When Palacio Estoril decided to launch a spa they didn’t do it half-heartedly – they partnered with one of Asias’ most renowned wellness brands – Banyan Tree. I’ve been lucky enough to visit a few of the Banyan Tree retreats around the world and Palacio Estoril has captured the essence of the brand perfectly. Therapists are trained at the Banyan Tree Academy in Thailand – resulting in incredibly high standards – and the tranquil Asian ambience is beautifully executed. The spa’s piece de resistance is the Dynamic Pool area where highlights include a Hammam, experience showers, a Turkish bath, saunas and a multi-jet pool.

Above the Banyan Tree Spa sits The Wellness Centre. This is where east-meets-west comes to play. In contrast to the eastern philosophy of the spa, the wellness centre is designed in a contemporary medi-spa style and offers everything from hydrotherapy and alternative therapies to advanced aesthetics and dentistry. The Wellness Centre menu is pretty impressive and spans from non-invasive liposuction to teeth whitening – there’s also a dedicated anti-ageing menu. The therapists, fitness experts and osteopaths that I notice gliding around are on hand to create bespoke regimes for clients. Dedicated programmes combine the elements of the holistic spa and clinic with fitness and wellness offerings and range from Beauty Boosters to Physical Rehabilitation.

The Treatment

The Banyan Tree Massage: From the moment I enter the room I know my therapist Nicole (flown in from Thailand when the spa launched) has the magical Banyan Tree touch – both in etiquette and technique. Just the aroma she’d created for my treatment made my shoulders immediately drop. Beginning with a foot scrub and deep inhalation, a sweeping kneading and nurturing massage with aromatic oils followed. De-knotted and de-stressed the treatment concluded with a pressure point head massage and I felt like I was floating on air.

Other Treatments

The Vichy Shower Massage: Essentially an oil based massage on a padded water-proof bed under an invigorating rain shower, Vichy Shower Massages have some great health benefits – including boosting blood circulation and the immune system, hydrating the skin and reducing stress. My therapist Sandra combined the placement of the water-jets across my body perfectly with an invigorating aromatherapy oil massage. I left feeling totally rejuvenated and de-stressed with silky smooth skin to boot.

The spa and wellness centre offer an extensive range of treatments including Sothy’s advanced anti-ageing facials and body treatments, Banyan Tree Rituals and Lymphatic Drainage.

To Stay

Rooms are elegant, cosy and comfy – styled with neutral hues and floral notes. Highlights include marble bathrooms with Molton Brown products, Juliet balconies and a welcome gift of Palacio Estoril’s famous custard tarts!

To Eat

Adjacent to the spa is the wonderful Organic Cafe. The healthy eatery serves up a rainbow of fresh vegetable juices and dishes include gluten free toast and crushed avocado, rice bowls, vegetable curries and salads. They also do a delicious chocolate brownie if you have a craving… There’s a lovely outdoor terrace for the summer months too!
