Spa Treatments at our Madeira Hotel

Starting from the often forgotten fact that every human being is an individual and therefore requires individual treatment, Ashoka has worked with leading specialists to develop a concept based on the five elements known as bioenergies within each of us.

At our spa hotel on Madeira, we offer holistic relaxation based on the five elements (air, space, fire, water, and earth) in harmony with traditional Ayurvedic and European treatments.
