The glass and slate building, with its bright and spacious interiors, is a good example of avant-garde architecture. Oriented to the south and overlooking the Bay of Biscay, it integrates perfectly into the surroundings and defines the urban profile of Poniente gijonés. A modern three-floor facility that has the vocation and the spirit of the old spas and that summarizes at the same time the marine essence of a modern city.

Three areas in Talasoponiente
1 The thalassotherapy area It is a space to relax, take care of and enjoy the effects of the marine environment thanks to active marine pools with water beds, swan necks, hydromassage seats, bubble seats, vertical hydromassage and hydromassage. We also found a hypersaline water pool: Flotarium which contains salt water of extremely high mineralization, similar to that of the Dead Sea, and temperature close to the body (36º). A very dim light cancels visual stimuli. Everything contributes to eliminate the 90 percent of the signals sent to the brain, causing sensory isolation and a deep state of physical, nervous and mental relaxation. The pediluvio is an application of cold water under pressure in lower limbs along a corridor of pebbles: its toning effect improves circulation in the legs. On the outdoor terrace we find another heated marine pool.
If what you are looking for are different sensations in personalized spaces, the thalassotherapy area also offers thematic circuits: Finnish, Roman, Japanese and sensory. These circuits alternate a dry part (sauna), a wet part (steam bath), contrast showers of different types and relaxation areas. The sensory circuit consists of a marine pool with music therapy and chromotherapy and a relaxation area to achieve total relaxation of body and mind.
