Duparc Oriental Spa

photo 5I’m a big fan of this place, Duparc Oriental Spa – a spa near the city centre, no membership, great facilities, works its magic every time. The price of a treatment is a bit toppy (for Turin) but that includes access to ‘l’acqua’ – the steam room, jacuzzi and lounge area. Ok, so that’s your membership right there but I’d rather pay for what I want to use than have to pay a chunk upfront, unsure of when I’ll return…

The jacuzzi is the nicest I’ve ever been in. It’s huge, tiled and the water is luke warm which I personally prefer to a sticky shared bath. One of the bits I really like is the different temperature rainfall showers – from 25 to 42 degrees they rain down so you can walk along getting progressively more tropical.

The changing rooms are lovely – extra towels everywhere, giant shower spaces, nice toiletries, and the lounge area is super relaxing – little refreshments on the side, lots of plants and space (it’s the space that really beats anything similar in London). But one of the main highlights is the very pleasant, easy going atmosphere. No pretension, no pressure, very chilled.

I’ve only had massages in gravidanza which doesn’t make me the best judge or informant of their hands-on skills, but I have found that the Thai massage is the best (surprise!). Everything about a visit to this Spa is delicious – from the walk through the park to get there, to the last drop of oil. If they did have membership I’d probably be the first to sign up!
