Imagine a place where everything is light and space, where you can forget fatigue, stress and routine... a new and unique spa where, throughout the year, you will find peace and calm in the beneficial effects of thermal water. A haven to retreat to, dedicated to rest, getting back in shape, health and beauty.
Caldea uses the water which
emerges from the thermal source in Escaldes-Engordany at 68º C to create
a harmonious interrelation between the body and water in futuristic surroundings.
In ancient Catalan, the word 'caldea' means tonifying and warm. In Roman
times, the word 'calidae', from which the name of the town of Escaldes in
Andorra originates, designated a warm water source. Two thousand years
later, Caldea offers you a new form of well-being and enjoyment, an
encounter with water in all its possible forms, from steam to ice, from Japan
