Losinj in Istria boasts some of the most impressive spas and wellness retreats in the Adriatic which provide either panoramic views and facials with essential Mediterranean oils and herbs. Many are set in hotels, where a state-of-the-art wellness zone is a prerequisite. They are all unique and offer its own exclusive range of massages, facials and body treatments. Particularly recommended is the ‘Hot Chocolate’, an hour-long massage using a warm cocoa butter oil. Good for post-sunbathing, the oils replenish moisture and the gentle massage left me feeling completely relaxed. As an alternative to the popular hot stone massage was the ‘Signature Cold Stone Massage’, a gentle and detoxifying massage using cold stones from the Adriatic Sea to relieve tension and aid lymphatic drainage.
