and lovingly restored Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & Spa is a unique addition to Puglia’s White City, being the only hotel in Ostuni to offer a swimming pool and garden along with an intimate spa and wellness area located in the hotel’s ancient water chamber.
Nestled seven meters underground, the palace’s former water chamber has been transformed into an elegant bijou spa, home to a Turkish bath, Himalayan salt wall, multi-sensory shower and a natural whirlpool dug deep into the ground. Here, guests can indulge in a range of luxurious treatments to sooth and revitalise the body and mind. From the Aromatherapy Rebalancing Massage to help aid sleep and stress, to the Shirodara Massage derived from the ancient Indian Ayurveda medicine, which uses warm, energy-infused oil poured slowly onto the forehead to calm the mind and alleviate muscle tension.
The unique spa offering also includes a two-and-a-half-hour immune system enhancing Salt Ritual treatment. This begins with a Turkish Bath to eliminate toxins and stimulate cell renewal, followed by a Himalayan salt scrub and spa shower, ending with a deeply relaxing body massage to relieve tired joints and regenerate the skin. Couples booking the two mezzanine-level treatment rooms can essentially enjoy their very own private wellness sanctuary with exclusive access to the spa for three and a half hours.
With a rare and tranquil outdoor space in the heart of the city, guests staying at Paragon 700 Boutique Hotel & Spa also have the opportunity to book personalised yoga or Pilates classes in the hotel’s outdoor open-air lounge or in a secluded corner of the verdant garden. After a morning exploring Ostuni’s main square, just a short stroll away, guests can enjoy a cooling dip in the swimming pool before lounging in the sun below the fragrant citrus trees in this serene oasis.
