A new Wellness Centre a the PGA Catalunya golf resort in Girona, Spain, has opened its doors following a €5m (US$5.9m, £4.3m) investment.

Set in 540 hectares of Mediterranean forest, the destination offers a holistic retreat integrating physical and mental health into a space that nurtures fulfilment through golf, leisure and low-density living.

Industry figure Greg Payne has been instrumental in supporting the project’s inception and has overseen the concept-planning, financial, design and pre-opening phases of the 1,000sq m facility. He says it “showcases a new integrated approach to spas for the hospitality industry.”

Payne says the vision is to develop an offering that moves beyond spa and treats guests as elite athletes using the latest technology and integrating therapies with nutrition, movement and recovery facilities.

At the same time, the idea is to fuse this with spas’ traditional high service and not switch off leisure guests looking for a relaxing treatment.

Located at the heart of the resort, the Wellness Centre was crafted by Lagula Arquitectes and provides traditional spa therapies alongside medi-wellness services such as Mecotec cryotherapy chambers, photobiomodulation, hyperbaric oxygen chambers and IV infusions.

Nutritional programmes are also offered as well as detox, immunity and anti-ageing programmes.

The centre features eight treatment rooms and suppliers include Oakworks, Aromatherapy Associates and Biologique Recherche.

"The new wellness centre showcases a new integrated approach to spas for the hospitality industry,” – consultant Greg Payne
