Tired of the traditional spa services, and eager for the exotic? Head directly to the body treatments at The Royal Club, inside the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I. Some specialties here may seem far-out for even a Mediterranean port city, though there is a method to the madness. A wrap with clay from the Dead Sea is rich with potassium, and that promotes weight loss. A thalasso body sculpt slims and firms using seawater minerals. The “session of stretching with the softness of a silk foulard” from Persia is as sensual as it sounds. Why limit the world to your fingertips when it can surround your entire body?
