What makes a good spa? If you had to ask us, our reply would be that it’s the serenity one feels while unwinding there; the friendly and professional team; the choice of treatments available; and that the premises truly lives up to the haven they are meant to be.
Our spa, run by French company Deep Nature, hits all those notes, and aims to offer guests an experience that abounds with naturality, simplicity and generosity. Now, to oversee it does just that, is our new spa manager, Marie Sebire, who recently moved to Malta from France to join The Phoenicia Malta team.
Marie has been working in spas for over 15 years, starting out as a beauty therapist and moving on to run spas at various well-known, five-star hotels in France, including the world-renowned Disneyland Hotel.
“I’ve always loved taking care of people, which is why I became a beauty therapist in the first place,” Marie explains. “One of my favourite memories from my work has to be when a guest once told me, ‘Marie, my day’s been a nightmare, but you and your treatment really turned things around.’ I understood at that point that I’d made the right career choice, and my passion for what I do grew from there.”
Now as the manager of Deep Nature Spa at The Phoenicia Malta, Marie has inherited a brand-new award winning spa in a serene historic setting. While the spa was unveiled just last year, it is flanked by one of Malta’s most historic hotels to one side, and 16th-century fortifications to the other. Spa guests not only enjoy the wonderful location on the doorstep of Valletta but also its array of facililities and services including an indoor 20 metre heated pool, a traditional sauna, a steam room, salt room, multi-jet showers, and the friendly and professional team, who are trained to offer relaxing massages including Immersion, Oxygen and Serenity as well as regular and express manicures and pedicures, among other services.
“The team has been wonderful and has welcomed me with open arms. I am really looking forward to working with them to constantly improve our Deep Nature experience , increasing the list of treatments available, and creating an even better environment both for our guests and for our team.”
One thing Marie hopes the spa will continue to emanate is the French-touch that the Deep Nature brand brings with it. “Deep Nature is synonymous with luxury and quality in France,” she tells us, “and I am confident that the same will be felt here, on the beautiful island of Malta.”
We invite you to come say hello to Marie and to experience a wonderful Deep Nature Spa experience at The Phoenicia Malta.
