Medical treatments and spa and wellness interventions are offered side by side at the new €25m Longevity Health and Wellness Hotel in Alvor, Portugal.
Developed by HPA Group and Longevity Wellness Worldwide, the 70-room resort has extensive facilities offering preventative and solution-based therapies, blending medical screening and diagnostics with wellness.
Options are based on five pillars: medicine that is preventive, personalised, holistic, integrative and regenerative.
They include medical check-ups, fitness, anti-ageing, spa and wellbeing, stress management, mindfulness, detox and weight loss.
Nazir Sacoor, Longevity Wellness Worldwide CEO, said: “Our resort is aiming to be a world-class product with 360-degree solutions in health and wellness to meet all needs. For us, Longevity is not just about living longer, but about living better”.
Guests can visit a two-floor health and wellness clinic with both medispa and traditional spa areas. The 16-room medispa offers integrative and regenerative-based medicine, as well as cosmetic surgeries such as hair transplants, facelifts, and rhinoplasties.
A nearby private hospital is used for most medical procedures and recovery, but the hotel is suitable for recovery from outpatient-type day surgeries.
Longevity specialises in anti-inflammation treatments which focus around early detection, repair and prevention of chronic inflammation of the body – the trigger for the most prevalent chronic diseases of modern-day life, such as heart disease, stroke, arthritis, IBS, and asthma.
Anti-inflammation treatments include ozone therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Treatments are delivered inside hyperbaric chambers where guests breathe pure oxygen under pressure two to three times normal atmosphere.
The facility also provides a selection of beginner or intensive health programmes
covering multiple disciplines, ranging from five-day slimming detoxes to a three-week 360-degree health check-up programme.
The hotel also has a spa area with dedicated rooms for detox, relaxation and nourishing treatments, as well as five individual and two double treatment rooms. Aromatherapy Associates, Charm D’Orient and Filorga have been chosen as product houses. Physical exercise sessions are also offered at the Technogym equipped workout space.
“At the conception of the company, 10 years ago, we started to see that wellness was not only becoming a trend but would be a necessity,” said Sacoor. “We decided to follow this path as we wanted to deliver a comprehensive health and wellness solution.”
