Green Spa

What we are doing to be more green:

Spa Velia has made it our top priority to reduce our environmental footprint, as well as share our concern for the earth's well being with our guests. We are committed to the process and starting with small steps that lead to larger steps in the right direction. By making a contribution to the effort to keep our planet cleaner and healthier, our team believes we will all benefit with healthier minds and bodies. This fusion of personal and planetary well being fits in perfectly with Spa Velia's philosophy - Sensory Nirvana.

We also embrace the concept of Greening the Soul first; that is the notion that greening our precious planet comes from greening our intention and souls first through awareness and then contribution.

Renewing and nourishing your body, soul and the earth at the same time – what’s not to love?
