It almost sound too good to be true doesn’t it – a hotel where two spa sessions, three thermal treatments and spa access are all included! Plus there is something quite compelling about the idea of a relaxing holiday in a very beautiful part of France, where the promise is “give us your body and we’ll distress you mind”. Here at the Le Grand Hotel that is exactly what they do!
Set in 60 hectares of parkland, the Thermal Resort of Molitg-les-Bains is a literal feast for all the senses, from the mouth-watering fruits of the apricot and peach trees, the organic herbal teas and healthy produce to the chirp of the birds and the Mediterranean idyllic of rugged mountains and trails climbing up to the Molitg “Village” (500 metres away). Here nature is queen!
A dip in the superb thermal pool “perched” in the trees is particularly special, not least for the simple yet luxurious fusion of traditional and contemporary facilities; weightless mud bath and personal treatment cabins. The hotel is best described as an open environment of nature and well-appointed junior suite with jaw-dropping views, where Mediterranean fabrics and modern furnishings complement the colours of the southern-inspired hotel. Unique, momentous and full of soothing treats!
Good to know: 45 minutes from Perpignan, 5 minutes from Prades and its picturesque old town.
