    Nowadays you don’t need an aristocratic title to get a royal treatment in Rome. Just enter the doors of the newly opened “Prince” SPA, more than 21,550 square feet, to be pampered and spoiled. It is located in Rome, about one mile from Via Veneto, on the premises of the exclusive Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa surrounded by the gardens of Villa Borghese. “Prince” can offer the most professional and up to date treatments in Rome.Chromotherapy and aromatherapy are only two of the numerous variations on the wellness theme. Twelve rooms are dedicated to individual multisensory treatments. The massage environment is a melting pot of techniques, with Thai, Shiatsu, Swedish, Ayurvedic and more besides. The wet zone offers a Turkish bath, bio sauna and Finnish sauna, as well as a cold area with emotional showers, ice cascade, tropical rainshowers and cold misting. Completely natural materials have been used for the interiors: bamboo for the parquet floors, rosewood for the walls, and stone and marble.

    Couples can enjoy their treatments and relax in exceptional private suites which incorporate various different areas. Gold dominates in the “Prince Suite”, while in the Golden Suite, mother of pearl and gold melt together to offer an equally striking environment, with candles, champagne, music, scents and light-play, all making it an unforgettable experience.

    During a pause in the relaxation room, you can sip a herbal tea followed by a dip in the 25-metre pool for a swim, an aquafit lesson or a Watsu treatment. Or you could opt for the two-person hydromassage tub and try out 35 different types of hydromassage. A beautiful virtual starry sky completes the picture. Then there is the gym of about 500 square metres, with the latest generation equipment, the “IFood” bar with special menus ranging from vegetarian to lactose-free, gluten-free, vitamin-based and so on, and the “Hairlosophy” hairstylist.

    The products used are all top of the range in the cosmetic panorama. The main product line is MARIA GALLAND PARIS, the best there is in the luxury product range for professional cosmetology, used in top spas such as at the Burj al Arab (the famous sail-shaped hotel in Dubai) and the Paris Ritz. The HÖBE PERGH range of hay treatments on the other hand, come directly from the Asiago plateau. Then there are the FISIOSPHERE products based on marine seaweed, mud and sea salts and the GERMAINE DE CAPUCCINI range for the milk, chocolate and red grape treatments. Various latest generation technologies are available to beautify the body and face, with anti-ageing effects.
