The best spas and salons in Marbella

The best places to pamper yourself across Marbella

Want the best beach feet in all of Spain? Here are a few salons that are not only prestigious in pedicures but luxury as well.

Finca Cortesin

Fina-Cortesin-3Finca Cortesin

The beautiful hotel and resort Finca Cortesin barely needs an introduction to those who know Marbella, and even less so to golf players. But let’s focus for once on the spa which, at over 2,000 square metres, is no small affair. There is a new Oriental spa where therapists from Thailand go so far as to use bars attached to the ceiling to give certain treatments. Alternatively, you can bask in the thermal baths, make gentle waves in the giant indoor pool or work up a sweat in the fitness centre. Pedicure options at the Finca come as a trio: express pedicure, luxury foot ritual and a men’s special.

Salon La Vida by Vera

A full hour’s pedicure at this friendly salon, run by Vera from Finland who is sure to offer you a glass of wine or a coffee, covers all bases; filing, shaping, pushing (cuticles), clipping, scrubbing and a divine massage before the application of polish. The salon staff are also a dab hand at make-up and hair and Vera herself is a hair colouring connoisseur. La Vida By Vera is situated right alongside the famous golf course Aloha.

The Nail Place

Zesty lemon footbaths are the order of the day if you set foot into The Nail Place for some pedicure pampering. The exfoliation ritual extends all the way up to the knee, which is appreciated, and the quality of the lacquer used is excellent and lasting. Men wanting some foot TLC are as well cared for as women here but the girls promise to hold back on the polish, unless requested! Since 1993 in the centre of Puerto Banús.
