A community like no other, surrounded by natural beauty on the unspoiled coast of the North Adriatic, Portopiccolo boasts the only deluxe 5 star hotel of the region – Falisia, A Luxury Collection Hotel – and the celebrated SPA by Bakel. A Yacht Club, Beach Club, restaurants, cafés, cocktail bars and boutiques dot the buzzing enclave.

A truly contemporary concept Portopiccolo was developed through zero impact, sustainable and accessible architecture integrated into the Duino Cliffs Nature Reserve.

The Spa

Portopiccolo SPA by Bakel

Portopiccolo SPA by Bakel, is a precious spot located in the middle of the Duino Cliffs Nature Reserve and covers an area of 3.600 square meters. A steep limestone cliff represents the marriage of the Alpine and Illyrian natural domains, a rocky edge that is rich in history and legends. The SPA’s calming Wellness Area was created using the local white Karst stone and exudes serenity.

Highlights include an indoor-to-outdoor hydrotherapy pool, emotional showers, a Kneipp path, Hammam (tepidarium, calidarium and frigidarium), a bio sauna, Finnish sauna and various relaxation areas. There’s also a soothing salt cave – where
you can inhale micronized iodine or dive in the saline tank. Fitness fans can take advantage of the gym and personal training studio. The Beauty SPA boasts an amazing seascape waiting lounge, eight treatment rooms and a Panoramic SPA Suite.

Treatments are devised by luxury skincare brand Bakel and range from cutting-edge anti-ageing facials to holistic scrubs, body treatments and beauty essentials.
