    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Situated on the unspoilt island of Gozo, the Kempinski San Lawrenz Resort and Spa offers the ideal hideaway for a rejuvenating and relaxing spa holiday. Smaller, greener and more rural than neighbouring Malta, Gozo benefits from a spectacular rugged landscape, secluded beaches and a clear blue sea.
    The resort is set in 30,000 square metres of subtropical garden on the west side of the island, close to the small village of San Lawrenz. Designed to blend into the surrounding landscape, the hotel is built entirely of Maltese limestone to resemble a traditional hunting lodge. The accommodation is made up of suites and rooms, all equipped with their own private balcony or terrace overlooking the beautiful valley of San Lawrenz and the resort’s landscaped garden and pools. The rooms are decorated in traditional Maltese style with cooling limestone walls, honey-coloured wooden furniture and warming red and brown fabrics.
    Guests at the hotel can enjoy a comprehensive range of spa treatments from one of the largest marine care centres in Europe as well as a wide range of Ayurvedic remedies. Ayurveda restores the body’s harmony and promotes good health by purifying the body and mind. You will feel refreshed, your immune system boosted and toxins eliminated naturally. The expertly-trained staff will give you a personal consultation before you commence your treatments and will put together a programme that meets your individual needs. In order to complement your treatments, the resort’s chefs will prepare Ayurvedic meals on request.

    Several different dining experiences are available in the hotel. The Ortolan Restaurant operates a smart casual dress code, while at the Trattoria San Lawrenz you can enjoy a more laid back atmosphere. Both these restaurants serve delicious Mediterranean and Maltese cuisine comprising of fresh vegetables, herbs and citrus fruits. Much of the produce used comes from the hotel’s own vegetable garden, while the fish is supplied daily from the local fishermen of San Lawrenz. The Kempinski Resort and Spa offers a quality spa experience in five star comfort.

    Other information

    Kempinski Spa
    The Kempinski Spa on Gozo offers both Marine Care and Ayurveda Treatments. Marine Therapy is similar to Thalassotherapy and involves algae body wraps and peelings, refreshing Vichy showers, massages in the hydrojet tub and underwater massages for stimulating circulation. The Ayurveda Centre is run by staff from Kerala in India, said to be the birthplace of Ayurvedic remedies. Treatments start with a free consultation to assess your needs. A wide range of treatment packages are offered by the hotel to treat specific problems, for example Body Slimming, Stress and Strain Relief. Programmes last between 5 and 21 days.

    Facilities at the spa include the warm 31-degree, oxygen rich hydro-pool, steam bath and solarium. The indoor pool is equipped with a Jacuzzi.

    Marine Care Treatment
    Programmes
    Anti-Stress programme
    This programme promotes a feeling of wellbeing and calm. It is a five-day programme that combines stone therapy with the healing powers of water. Balneotherapy improves circulation and restores and revitalises the body while the Vichy shower relaxes and soothes. Stone therapy utilises smooth, hot basalt lava stones over oiled skin and can aid emotional stress.

    Three-Day Thalgo Marine Care Package
    A good introduction to Marine Care Therapy, you will experience a variety of different marine treatments to detoxify and relax. Treatment starts each day with an Algae Bath which uses marine based products to detoxify and rebalance the body. The Body Peeling removes dead skin cells to prepare the body for increased absorption of products while the Blitz Shower is a water massage that helps to decongest fatty deposits and firm skin tissues.

    Face and Body Contour Package
    This package combines cleansing and exfoliating treatments to detoxify the skin with firming massages to improve tone. The hydrojet bath is a relaxing dry massage on a water bed while the deep-pore cleansing facial eliminates impurities and toxins from the skin. The Finders Inchwrap improves skin tone and reduces cellulite with the added benefit of instant inch loss.

    Ayurveda Treatment
    Programmes
    Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old science to treat diseases, including stress, and help promote perfect health. Comprehensive treatment programmes are available as well as a range of individual treatments.

    Skin Care
    This programme improves complexion and tones the body using special herbal facials and henna treatment depending on individual needs. It is ideal for curing skin diseases or just improving the overall look and feel of the skin.

    Body Slimming
    From the perspective of Ayurveda, losing weight is not about starving or suppressing the appetite but balancing your fat metabolism. Treatments include body massages with special herbal powders and internal herbal medicine, tailored to individual needs.
