Biarritz has a long-standing tradition of thalassotherapy and wellness. The first saltwater spas were built here at the end of the 19th century, but these only offered basic care. In the late 1970s, Louison Bobet, three-time winner of the Tour de France, opened an institution that offered some pioneering treatments: the Miramar. The champion cyclist theorised that thalasso acted on the body as a whole, helping it to fight fatigue and stress. Since then, this innovative thinking has been upheld, and the benefits of seawater are now unanimously accepted. Nowadays, Biarritz remains a thalasso hotspot and our guests can enjoy treatments at one of the thalasso centres in the town, just a few minutes from our aparthotel. These establishments offer à la carte treatments, wraps, modelling treatments, massages, beauty treatments, balneotherapy and much more - ideal for wellness enthusiasts!
