Floating between sky and sea, overlooking the bay of Altea, SHA Wellness Clinic suspends the flow of time for a Mediterranean health break. Extremely renowned, this wellness clinic attracts stars from all over the world. Some even call it“the best wellness hotel in the world“, and we at Luxe Wellness Club can easily understand why. Where else can you find such a wide range of therapies under one roof? We particularly like the quality of the care and medical follow-up, the relevance of the advice, and the healthy diet, which is exceptional.
An ideal year-round microclimate
Overlooking the sea and the mountains, this resort dedicated entirely to health and well-being is ideally located in a highly sought-after region of Spain’s Costa Blanca. Benefiting from the microclimate typical of the Alicante region, the bay of Altea is the ideal place to reset your batteries without going to the ends of the earth. The weather is often fine, even in winter.
Streamlined atmosphere for a serene ambience
The designers of this hyper-modern architectural complex seem to have been inspired by the clean aesthetics of the alleyways of the nearby town of Altea, or the luminous villages of the Cycladic islands. In fact, white dominates every space in this immense resort: reception, wellness clinic, rooms, areas dedicated to well-being… Wherever you look, the virginal purity of the décor invites you to rest your mind.
Rooms with mountain and sea views
The hotel offers 7 categories of suites, including a 320 m², two-storey Royal Suite with private pool. Each suite is equipped with designer furniture and a home automation system.
The first room category is called the “Deluxe Suite”. Always with a terrace, it offers either a mountain view or a sea view. You can request a Jacuzzi on the terrace.
For longer stays, or for families, the SHA Wellness Clinic also offers 11 luxury residences designed by Spanish architect Carlos Giraldi. Each offers the opportunity to live life to the full, cook for yourself and enjoy a host of home services.
They boast a superb swimming pool and offer yoga, pilates, aquagym or massage classes right at the villa. The penthouse also has its own sauna.
The largest of these residences have their own hammam, wellness area and even a private cinema.

Themed treatment programs: detox, weight loss, anti-aging…
The treatment programs offered at this unique medical hotel have been developed around the major problems encountered by their patients. Theapproach is holistic, based on preventive, genetic and anti-aging medicine, as well as traditional Asian therapies that have proven their effectiveness.
1 – Rebalance, the SHA introductory program (4 to 14 days)
“Rebalance” is a 4- and 7-day program to relax, improve general health and acquire a new lifestyle through sports sessions, modern and traditional therapies and an adapted nutritional program. It is recommended for those who have no specific weight loss or anti-aging goals.
Spread over 7 or ideally 14 days, this program enables you to regain optimum physical condition.
Additional modules (“focused packs”) can be added to achieve a particular objective.
The “Sleep Recovery” add-on module corrects sleep apnea and insomnia based on a medical check-up and a nocturnal polygraph sleep test. Natural therapies such as acupuncture, TCM, phytotherapy, massage, yoga, meditation and hydrotherapy are all techniques that promote better sleep.
Another complementary module concerns“stress management.” Various techniques and therapies are employed with the aim of reducing negative symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, anxiety or irritability, thus restoring optimal levels of health and energy.
The “Anti-smoking” module enables you to avoid absolute dependence on tobacco in a natural, healthy and controlled way. If a customer isn’t going to quit smoking in a week, he or she can start the process gently here.
Finally, the “Digestive Health” module restores, as far as possible, the balance and proper functioning of the digestive system, by improving the state of the intestinal microbiota.
2. Optimal Weight : to lose or gain weight (7 to 21 days)
The aim of this program is to achieve your optimal weight in a healthy, progressive and balanced way,
under strict medical and nutritional control. While the majority of customers come to lose weight, some are looking to gain weight. At SHA, anything is possible!
The method has a lasting effect thanks to the techniques and healthy lifestyle habits acquired at SHA.
This program alternates natural therapies, state-of-the-art technological treatments and physical exercise with a personal trainer and group sessions.
3. Advanced Detox: To purify the body (7 to 21 days)
The aim of this program is to purify the body of toxins accumulated in the liver and digestive system as a result of poor eating habits and external pollutants. It also aims to encourage new, healthy eating habits to optimize natural detoxification mechanisms.
4. Intensive Program (combination of detox and weight loss, 7 to 14 days)
This is the program of choice for those seeking to strengthen the recovery process by combining two major approaches: achieving an ideal weight in a healthy way and, at the same time, carrying out a process of cleansing and purifying the body to achieve optimal health.
5. Healthy Ageing, the benchmark anti-aging program (7 to 14 days)
Healthy aging” programs for women and men are designed to delay the effects of aging, both internally and externally. A comprehensive medical check-up and oxidative stress assessment are carried out to determine the biological age, as well as factors likely to have a negative impact on quality of life. Afterwards, a mix of traditional and modern therapies is used to allow the body to recover in depth and slow down the aging process. Dr Vicente Mera is the director of this program, and is world-renowned for his expertise in anti-aging medicine.
