The legendary thalassotherapy center on the Basque coast has had a makeover!

Being in tune with the elements is the secret of a relaxing spa break. Here, time is lived to the rhythm of the sea which borders the immense Blonde Grande Plage in the magnificent bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Planted facing the ocean, the Hélianthal **** Thalazur thalassotherapy center has become, in its thirty years of existence, a flagship address on the Basque coast in terms of well-being. Feet in the sand, the vast thalassotherapy building extends to the rear of the famous Art Deco Pergola signed Mallet-Stevens and today constitutes an emblem of the seaside promenade of the seaside resort.

To get a makeover, the establishment closed its doors between fall 2019 and spring 2021, its metamorphosis is simply stunning! Design, equipment, care: everything has been redesigned while respecting the site's Art Deco identity and integrating traditional Basque culture. The contemporary design and the refined decoration with bluish shades are signed by Jean-Philippe Nuel, the architect of the Molitor hotel in Paris and the Cures Marines in Trouville. From the reception, the Zen and intimate atmosphere is immersive. The atmosphere of this decor with refined sobriety is immediately conducive to relaxation.

A cocooning break in the heart of the ocean

Practiced since Antiquity, thalassotherapy uses sea water and more widely the marine environment (seaweed, mud, sand, air and marine climate...) for the benefit of its therapeutic, curative, preventive, or quite simply to pleasure. Heated to 33 °, seawater allows minerals and trace elements to pass through the epidermis to reach the bloodstream and then the various organs. The body relaxes and regenerates itself. The body revitalizes itself. The mind calms down.

The Marine Course: the benefits of seawater

At Hélianthal **** Thalazur in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, sea baths form the basis of thalassotherapy, combined with treatments such as massages, seaweed wraps, showers and hydromassage baths ... With a breathtaking view over the entire bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, the superb infinity sea course gives you the impression of being at one with the ocean. It opens onto a large seawater pool of 300m² heated to 33 °, surrounded by colonnades and decorated with water games with regenerative virtues scattered on both sides: pedijets, massage seats, a waterfall, whirlpools, a " Cobra " and swan neck water slide, aquabeds and an open Jacuzzi on the beach. A real interlude of sweetness!

A rest room is at our disposal to relax between two swims or two treatments, eyes always riveted on the ocean. To perfect this relaxation and detoxify the body, the effect of heat and humidity provide immediate positive effects. In the Finnish spirit, the sauna offers a dry steam bath with a temperature of 80 °. Inspired by oriental tradition, two hammams at different temperatures offer rituals of care and relaxation in a sumptuous decor of marble and mosaic. In the center of these spaces, a cascade of crushed ice is at our disposal to cool off. Escape guaranteed!

The cardio-fitness area for getting back into shape

We forget it sometimes, but the heart is a muscle! Like all muscles, it needs to be used regularly to be toned. The principle of cardio training is therefore based on training this muscle, which is essential for keeping in shape! Facing the ocean, a first independent cardio-fitness area allows you to take advantage of various devices (treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, rowers, steppers, etc.) while a second area is dedicated to group gym and yoga lessons, pilates, Chinese gym... Nothing better to let off steam and sweat well than a little cardio session to start the day!

A la carte treatments in an idyllic setting

Low morale, fatigue and lack of desire are the classic symptoms of the season. Nothing more normal, we are in autumn. So with great evils, great remedies. Escape, decompress and recharge your batteries with healing and beneficial seawater- based treatments to resurface. During a revitalizing stay or the time of a day, the treatments of Hélianthal **** Thalazur constitute real energy boosters. Remineralizing hydromassage bath, jet shower, circulatory shower, marine hydromodelling, modeling under fine seawater rain, underwater hydrojet jet, algae therapy with seaweed wrap, application of sea mud, cryotherapy or even scrubs... all these treatments gently rebalance body and mind and relieve ailments and anxiety. A range of massages lavished by expert hands reinforces this relaxation with various inspirations: abhyanga from Ayurvedic medicine, hot stone massage, Balinese or Californian massage or plantar reflexology. The Basque signature massage is a real favorite: made from red algae, it results from an ancestral Basque technique to the rhythm of the waves and allows deep relaxation.
