Take a break at the Valvital spa!

After a hard day’s skiing, what could be better than a good massage and a relaxing session in a hot bath.
I tested the treatments at Sensoria for you

This is a real space for relaxation, unwinding and getting back into shape in the Aure valley.


Sensoria is the ideal place to let yourself go

It’s a true space for relaxation and fitness in the Aure valley.

To help you prepare for your stay in Saint-Lary, I tested two treatments, one balneotherapy and one modeling.These two treatments are representative of the services offered by the Spa. I also had access to the jacuzzi, thermal water pool, sauna and hammam.

This treatment involves lying on your stomach on a massage table (photo opposite), and receiving a shower of warm water mixed with a mist that sweeps over your body from head to toe. The pressure of the water can be adjusted to suit your mood, for total relaxation. The treatment lasts around a quarter of an hour. At the end of this treatment, I felt perfectly soothed and zen, the sensation of the warm water providing real relaxation.

My relaxation massage

A blissful massage

This treatment took place in a tastefully decorated massage cabin with calm background music perfectly suited to the atmosphere. The massage was based on shiatsu techniques very well mastered by the beautician who took care of me. This massage focuses on the legs, feet and back, and helps to relieve these parts of the body which are much stressed by a day’s skiing.

This treatment lasts around 25 minutes. We wish it lasted much longer.

In addition, I was able to take advantage of the thermal water pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and hammam, which allowed me to fully appreciate the treatments that followed.



My advice

-For greater tranquility and privacy I advise you to visit Sensoria rather in the morning or early afternoon, and to avoid the end of the day in order to escape the crowds.

-Think about booking online before you come, as some treatments require you to make an appointment.

-If you schedule a treatment at Sensoria, plan to arrive a little early so you can take advantage of the thermal water pool, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam.

– An alternative to the jacuzzi is the thermal water pool heated to 32°C with its magnificent view of the Pyrenean mountains.

– Finally, don’t forget to fill in the satisfaction questionnaire stapled to the treatment sheet that will be given to you at reception, as it is thanks to this questionnaire that the Spa will be able to respond even better to its customers’ requirements.


Good to know

As children are not allowed in the spa area, Sensoria has created a play area for them, adapted to their needs and desires: the RIO. You can enjoy your treatments while your family takes advantage of the heated pool.

And finally...

Highlights of my visit

First and foremost, I particularly appreciated the welcome by the smiling, charming and very professional hostesses.

Then, the low crowds at the time of my visit enabled me to make the most of the facilities and I even had the privilege of having the jacuzzi to myself at certain times. It was very pleasant.

Finally, I was able to appreciate the rest room where they make you wait before treatments and where you have the opportunity to have a hot drink and something to nibble on.
