The new Bricia du Mar Rural Hotel in Ferragudo seeks to offer guest all the amenities to stay healthy.
At Bricia Health & Wellness Gym, we seek to enhance the concept of Health & Wellness, providing guests and entire community with gym services, personal training, fitness classes, yoga therapy, clinic Pilates, nutrition planning and a spa with Turkish bath and sauna. Our mission is to provide a quality service within the scope of physical activity, health and wellness, treating each person as an individual. Empathy, professionalism, respect and integrity are some of the values by which our team is governed.
The Bricia gym’s personalised training seeks to respond to the specific needs of our guests, regardless of their age, physical condition level, or ultimate goal (individual or duo sessions). As for the Yoga therapy and clinic Pilates, the methodology associated with each programme always seeks to adapt the exercises to each body, aiming to improve your physical condition and health (individual sessions or in pairs).
The team also provides a nutrition service that can play a vital part not only in the assessment of the diet, behavioural and anthropometric profiles of clients, but also in the sustainable monitoring of the right nourishment and lifestyle over time.
There is also Hidrofit and circuit training, GAP, rural walking and much more. There are three available membership plans, with several benefits: Platinum, which offers unlimited access to the facilities, monthly physical assessment and training follow-up; Gold, with access three times a week and training follow-up; and Silver, which provides access to the facilities twice a week. All plans include fitness classes, sauna, Turkish bath and 20% off in spa treatments.
Speaking of which, Spa Du Mar includes three treatment rooms and a common wet area with sauna, steam room/hammam and spa rituals inspired in the most ancient cultures of the Middle East and North Africa with unique and exclusive natural formulas, and shower that you can enjoy before or after your treatment.
Our Wellness menu was carefully selected in partnership with the exclusive natural brand Charme D’Orient, featuring remarkable textures, signature rituals and holistic therapies like reflexology, cupping therapy and many more designed especially for you to let go and find your balance in a wave of relaxation.
As an extension to our wellness approach, we offer a Medi Spa menu featuring a cosmeceutical line with advanced, result-driven treatments: Detox, contouring, lymphatic drainage as well as wellness consultations in partnership with the fitness team, advanced face treatments for pigmentation, anti-aging, fillers, Botox, chemical peels and skin rejuvenation.
Your journey begins with a private consultation with our therapists or medical doctor, who will select the path that fits with your main concern for the day, personal goals, health or skin concerns.
