Agua – Spa Health and Beauty, The Netherlands

Situated right in the centre of the city is an urban retreat where cutting-edge treatments meet a slower pace of wellness and relaxation: Agua – Spa Health & Beauty

The buzzy Dutch city of Eindhoven is renowned for its creative innovations and advanced technological developments. Just a few years ago, it was voted the Smartest Region of the World by New York think-tank Intelligent Community Forum, and its Design Academy is also world-class. Eindhoven is fast-growing and boasts a truly international feel.

Situated right in the centre of the city is an urban retreat where cutting-edge treatments meet a slower pace of wellness and relaxation: Agua – Spa Health & Beauty. Inside the spa area, all features have been custom-designed. Beneath glowing light rings, a clutch of low-slung sofas line the swimming pool, whirlpool bath and rainshower. There’s a Finnish and infrared sauna, a glass-clad steam cabin, nail bar and yoga studio. And in the summer, Agua opens its doors to a sunlit roof terrace featuring a whirlpool, several sunbeds and shady lounge corners overlooking the city.

All the spa cabins are built on different levels, creating a visually intriguing space, while reflecting the dynamism of the city as a whole. Popular therapies on the extensive treatment menu include Immune Recovery massage, Ultimate Aromatherapy treatment, Natureceuticals Lunchtime Yoga facial and Skin Perfection peel.

Internationally trained and highly qualified, each of Agua’s therapists specialises in a particular area, from oxygen facials, light therapy and anti-cellulite treatments to a variety of weight-loss, detox and stress-management programmes. But the one thing they all have in common: the desire to provide the highest level of service possible.

Post-treatment, refuel with an organic salad in Agua’s lounge, washed down with a smoothie, or, on certain days, tuck into soup, delivered fresh from Michelin-starred restaurant De Treeswijkhoeve.

Every year, the city hosts Dutch Design Week in October, the largest and arguably most important design event on the European calendar. Designer aficianados should combine a visit with a stay in this perfect little hideaway.
