The Yonaguni spa, jewel of Alsace
To go to the Yonaguni spa is to live an experience combining surprises and awakening of the senses.
On the ground floor, a 330 square meter aquatic labyrinth invites visitors to let themselves be carried away by the waves, and give free rein to their curiosity. From space to space, we are immersed (no pun intended) in a new atmosphere, created by a play of light, music and jets. Thus, from an eruption reminiscent of that of lava (see photo below) to that of a geyser, from the tranquility of a small river current to that of a suspended basin, water sets the pace. Everywhere, buttons make it possible to activate jets. Each time, we are surprised. Each time, we savor it. The body relaxes, tensions dissipate, time evaporates.
And then we go upstairs (unless we start there), the sauna area (in the dark at 60°, panoramic at 85°, banya at 90°C), conceptualized rest rooms (on mattresses hot quartz, water beds or even on hammocks), hammam (45°), Zero Degree cabin, sensory showers and, of course, the wellness area and its 7 massage suites, where the menu of treatments signed Gemology (leader in mineral cosmetics), echoes the universe of this spa so well.
Why we liked Yonaguni Spa
When an establishment has already received more than five prestigious awards, one wonders what could be different, new, surprising. When the name of Yonaguni is passed on between two conferences between journalists specialized in the field, we say to ourselves that it is necessary to impress this little world. So we go there, we test, we savor and we understand.
At the end of our visit, refreshed and relaxed, we could only abound the rewards and recommendations. Feelings and images full of the head, we keep in particular:
– those of the outdoor pool and the large indoor infinity pool
– those of the little fight against the current from which we recovered discreetly behind a wall of water, massaging jets as a bonus.
– those of the whirlpool baths subsequently counterbalanced by the cooler one located outside, near the Koi carp pond.
– those of the dark sauna with tinted windows, so soothing, of the (huge) rest room lit by a strange fireplace, of the divine Gemology body treatment…
Added to this is a point that did not fail to hold our attention: the accessibility of the premises (in view of the services offered), made possible thanks to various formulas. A desire for owners who wish to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the services offered, usually reserved for a wealthy elite. The ideal? Opt for the day option including lunch, prepared on site by chefs whose kitchen is open to the dining room. You can savor seasonal dishes, dressed in a bathrobe if you don’t want to get dressed between two wellness sessions. Another attractive option for night owls: the possibility of enjoying the place for an evening, among a very limited number of visitors (30 versus 90 during the day). Champagne and meal tray (including foie gras, fish tartare and dessert) at the key. A beautiful
birth gift idea for parents, who will quickly need a comforting break after their little one’s short nights.
