The spa is a place where you can relax, rejuvenate and forget about your troubles through a mix of sumptuous treatments by talented therapists and exquisite, mood-enhancing fragrances.
As well as indulging ourselves in treatments, we enjoyed unwinding in the superb spa facilities from a sauna and hammam to an indoor heated pool with seawater.
I was impressed by the choice of skin-soothing facials, and eventually plumped for the Anne Semonin Deep Marine Purifying Facial it seemed the best choice for my problematic skin. It started with a deep cleanse combined with a traditional steam-and-extraction technique, which left my skin looking and feeling instantly radiant! Then my therapist performed a gentle massage before letting an aromatic mask sink in for a few minutes, which soothed my aggravated complexion and let me relax for a while. My skin was visibly brighter, and after a quick sauna session it looked even better.
The Anne Semonin Soul Foot Therapy helped soothe my feet after long days walking along the beach in the blazing sun, thanks to a combination of nourishing oils and serums.

Thanks to its fabulous location and discreet atmosphere, the Sensimar Royal Blue Resort is perfect for holidays with your loved one. The resort is built on its own private bay, making it feel all the more exclusive. All rooms have fabulous sea views, giving guests something stunning to wake up to and setting the tone for each day in the sun together.
We had a luxury villa with a private pool and loungers, so we felt like we were part of the hotel, but with the
benefit of a secluded sanctuary. The hotel staff arranged a candlelit dinner for us in our villa it was great to have time alone. Day trips, car hire, sightseeing suggestions and more were all handled efficiently by the hotel staff.
Waking up each day to the endless blue sea was truly inspiring. In the evening we sat on the balcony with a glass of wine, watching the sunset. The resort has a really contemporary feel about it, but there is definitely something of traditional Greece too.
