The Wellness Holiday Boutique reviews Almar Jesolo Resort and Spa



Almar Jesolo Resort and Spa is a luxury 5* resort located in the charming resort town of Jesolo. A wonderful mélange of wellness and luxury, Almar Jesolo is the perfect escape if you’re looking for an Italian beach and wellness break in a calm and luxurious seafront setting.


Set along a 15km stretch of promenade, the longest in Europe, the resort is open from March to October and is just a 45-minute drive from the airport making it easily accessible from the UK with regular flights to Venice and Treviso airports. Of course, a visit to the Veneto region wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the capital; Venice is just 50 minutes from the resort and the reception were helpful in helping me print off the bus timetable, which conveniently stopped outside of the hotel, to Punta Sabbione followed by the water bus to Venice.



The Hotel


The resort is stylish and modern with soothing light Mediterranean colours and lots of floor to ceiling windows which blends the indoors and outdoors seamlessly. There is a large 70m indoor to outdoor pool made up of three adjoining pools at different temperatures with separate areas for adults and children. A walkway offers direct access to the private beach area which is equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas and reserved exclusively for hotel guests. There are also bicycles which you can borrow for a few hours at no extra cost which is a great way to explore the town.



Rooms


I stayed in a deluxe seafront room which was decorated in soothing light colours and very well equipped with all mod-cons and plenty of space for storage, yet still set in a minimalist style. There was a large oceanfront balcony overlooking the pool and sea which a table and 2 chairs where I was able to enjoy the bottle of sparkling wine that was in my room on arrival. There was also a large fluffy gown, flip flops and a bag provided to use in the spa.


The bathroom was spacious with a large walk-in shower and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the toiletries in the bathroom were the same as they use in the spa. They smell incredible and are exclusively made for Almar Jesolo so I couldn’t resist buying a bottle from the spa to take home with me.


The Wellness Facilities


Having been awarded ‘World’s best luxury spa’, I had high expectations of the Almablu spa and was not disappointed. Spread over 2,000sqm, there are an array of facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, multi-sensory shower experience, ice fountain, Himalayan salt sauna, two steam rooms (the nude kind) and a Kneipp therapy pool. A few steps down from the spa leads to the main pool which is lined with plenty of comfortable loungers.


Almablu offers a range of holistic wellness programmes and treatments which draws on Traditional Chinese Medicine with a unique combination of Western and Eastern philosophies to help guests rebalance the body and mind.


The fitness centre is located in a glass cube with floor to ceiling windows and glass floors offering spectacular sea views and there is a range of fitness classes available throughout the week including Pilates, yoga and breathwork.
