Unstoppable, fast and purifying. This wind blows, lifts, provokes the sea and then it calms down, disappears, leaving an unmistakable peacefulness behind. The purity of clean air, the elegance of the water’s colours and the harmony of a clear sky: our detoxifying treatments help purifying your body and eliminating useless substances.

The name “Miramare” means “to watch the sea with emotional involvement”, and this is exactly what you can do in our SPA here in Portopiccolo: just lay down on a sun bed and enjoy the beauty of the sea. Let the waves of the sea lull your eyes, and when the sun begins going down you will understand the true meaning of relaxation. Lose yourself watching the sun reflected in the sea, and every day enjoy the moment when it softly dives in the water and goes to sleep. Enjoy the privilege of watching this stress-relieving dance from here, while softening your tensions and completely abandoning yourself. The skilful hands of our therapists will accompany you in this relaxing, soothing and hydrating experience.

The waves bring with them the rhythm of the aquatic world. They break vigorously on the cliffs, giving life and shaping them with the movement of all the sea elements. Let your body receive specific treatments that, thanks to the strength of the draining effect, will reawaken part of the circulatory and lymphatic functions.

Sumac is an exceptionally sturdy plant that characterizes the Karst wilderness. When autumn comes, thanks to the changing colour of its leaves, some areas of the Karst turn golden yellow, while others turn purple red. Its wood is well known for being solid and strong. Its colour, that is a gift from the sun, reminds of force and energy. This energy and sensation of vital force will be the result of this energizing experience.

These exclusive treatments contain all the natural and positive energies of this enchanted place, and when combined with the professionalism of our wellness experts, they restore the psychophysical balance. The “Sublimes” are intensive treatments that fight the signs of ageing with more intensity, and immediately give a revitalized, relaxed and radiant skin.
