Embrace Athenaeum Spa’s Holistic Philosophy

The reimagined and renovated Athenaeum Spa is the place to pamper your senses and restore your wellbeing. The Spa offers a holistic, rejuvenating and luxurious experience within the Corinthia Palace’s newly unveiled oasis of serenity.

There’s no two ways about it: life is hectic. When we’re not madly typing out emails, lengthening to-do lists and keeping track of our projects and teams, we’re running errands, making calls and trying to get to the gym. It’s all a bit much. And all the while, what we crave most is time: time to reflect, refresh our minds and nurture our bodies.

Malta’s newest and most luxurious spa is just the ticket. The reimagined Athenaeum is more than your average spa. Here, every visitor steps into a carefully curated wellness experience – a tailored journey in pampering your senses and restoring your wellbeing. From the moment you enter to when you walk away, this is your escape.

But let’s get right to the essentials: all guests at Athenaeum Spa will have access to state-of-the-art facilities that include a thermal Vitality Suite home to a Vitality Pool, heated marble beds, a sauna and steam room, nail bar, seven treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge and terrace, an indoor pool with a jacuzzi and a large outdoor pool.

Best of all, though, are the ESPA treatments. Since opening its doors in 1989, the Athenaeum Spa has been a trailblazer in Malta’s luxury health and wellness sector. And it continues to lead the way by bringing the world-renowned, luxury skincare brand ESPA to the island. ESPA products offer a profoundly sensorial experience and provide visible benefits for the health and beauty of your skin.

“In partnership with ESPA, Athenaeum offers luxury products and treatments that make the most of natural ingredients and Maltese healing traditions,” says Adrian Attard, the Corinthia Palace’s General Manager. “All treatments on the menu have been carefully crafted to offer relief from today’s high-pressured lifestyle. Guests are invited to let go of tension and feel enriched, inspired and revived.”

Focusing on wellbeing as a journey, Athenaeum’s holistic philosophy is encased in a four-million-euro renovation project. The spa is set in a Mediterranean citrus and herb garden and has been personalised to radiate local character, historic traditions and Corinthia Palace’s unique architecture. While Athenaeum joins a portfolio of other famed ESPA spas – including the flagship ESPA Life at Corinthia London, the Royal Spa at Corinthia Budapest and The Spa at Corinthia Lisbon – its ethos, culture and heritage are firmly its own.

“The award-winning design team at Goddard Littlefair in the UK, who worked on the Corinthia landmark hotel in London, as well as Malta-based Quality Projects have created a celebration of the form and grandeur of authentic Maltese architecture,” says Mr Attard. “The seamless indoor-outdoor experience celebrates local artisans and the serene Mediterranean environment. The spa has been transformed into an idyllic spot in which to focus on body and mind.”

Athenaeum Spa and Corinthia Palace itself are an oasis in the centre of Malta. This is where you can get together with family and friends to concentrate on yourselves and each other. To make a full day of it, start with brunch at the grand Villa Corinthia, then forget about life at Athenaeum and, later, treat yourselves to Afternoon Tea and even a Far Eastern dinner at Rickshaw. And if you’re really looking to impress, a five-star overnight stay is at your fingertips.
