Hotel information - SHA Wellness Clinic ★★★★★
Location and key features
Welcome to SHA’s world, not just a luxury spa. A world of essences, textures and feelings to take you to the pure essence of balance. A perfect mixture between mind and soul together in the luxury SHA medical Spa. Set up on a hill out of range of the Benidorm tower blocks overlooking the beach the mountains and the valley, this Spa clinic bills itself as a temple to healthy living and relaxation.
In the small village of L'Alfaz del Pi (approximately 60 km from Alicante and 100 km from Valencia), the resort is located on a five minute driving distance (a 20 minutes walk, downhill) from the pebble beach and the sea.
Relaxation, healthy diet and exercise are the three cornerstones that translates SHA’s philosophy: contributing to a vital and healthy life. The spa and wellness center offers the best of both worlds: the holistic side of the East (acupuncture, tai chi, qigong, Ayurveda etc) and the medical side we know in the West (doctors, nurses and health checkups). SHA Wellness Clinic was founded by Alfredo Bataller, who since his youth suffered from a chronic disease, which was not improved by traditional medical treatments. He got in contact with a macrobiotic doctor that introduced him into a healthy lifestyle and a macrobiotic diet prescribed. And with success, he got healed! After this personal experience which he described the force experienced by the self-healing power of the body, he began to dream about a place where he could bring together these three elements: the macrobiotic cuisine, often thousand year old Eastern techniques and the latest Western methods on health and wellbeing. From its opening in 2008, SHA Wellness Clinic is now on the global map and known as one of the best spas in the world. At SHA they have thought of everything right down to the smallest detail. Even before the first stone was laid, the idea was to locate the resort somewhere unique, where peace is in the air, somewhere with an excellent climate and breathtaking views to impress all our guests. A paradise at the service of your health and well being. In 2010 SHA won the first prize of Condé Nast SPA Awards in the category 'Best Medical, Thermal & Natural Spa "and more awards followed later.
SHA Wellness Clinic is beautifully situated on a mountainside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. On the roof of the hotel is a sunddeck with swimming pool, where you can witness the stunning views and sunsets from your lounge bed. This is wellness new style: the beautiful design in white and gray, the lounge beds on the roof and a spa of 2000 m2. They offer specific programs such as quitting smoking, detox, lose weight, burn-out, yoga, fitness etc. A unique combination of healthy diet (macrobiotic cuisine is hip again!), coaching and treatments.
The hotel consists of five buildings, which are connected to each other by bridges. On the roof is the swimming pool (150 m2, not heated) with sun beds. The hotel also has a spa and wellness area of 2000m2, yoga and meditation rooms, a library, fitness center (approx 120m2), tennis courts, golf putting green and a chapel. The SHA restaurant, SHAMADI, is located on the fourth floor of the resort with breathtaking views of the sea and the Sierra Helada Mountains –in the summer meals are served on a magnificent terrace–, the menus include the most select modern range of macrobiotic dishes which are always made with natural organic ingredients and Mediterranean and Japanese fusion cuisine. It’s a healthy style of cooking, a therapeutic diet that won the Resort the Millésime Club prize for the Best Gastronomy Trends 2009 and also a sun in the Repsol Travellers guide. Pablo Montoro creates this for the demanding connoisseurs. Initially we were quite sceptical about macrobiotic eating, which prioritises grain foods and vegetables and avoids animal products, we were delighted with the chef’s tasty and imaginative creations.
The Wellness center and the Medical Spa
The Spa has an indoor pool (approx 80m2) with massage jets, 40 treatment rooms, Jacuzzi, hot and cold foot bath, saunas and various relaxation areas. What we love about SHA: there is a complimentary daily activity program including yoga, tai chi, cooking classes and walks, the macrobiotic food adventure (you might have to get use to it in the beginning, but believe us, you will love it!) and the countless aesthetic possibilities in the spa.
The hotel offers 93 suites in total, divided into various types of rooms: the Deluxe Suites, Superior Suites, Grand Suites, the Royal Suite and Presidential Suite. Below is a brief explanation of each type of room. You could also opt for a jacuzzi on your balcony or for a suite with seaview (with surcharge).

The suites have 1 large room with the seating area and the sleeping area separated by furniture. There is a spacious balcony and a separate dressing area. Each suite is equipped with a plasma TV, radio, safe, telephone, air conditioning and minibar. Please note that each suite has 1 double bed in the room. Should you wish to share a room, then SHA will prepare two separate beds but without a space in the middle. If you prefer to sleep on beds that are not in the same area, we advice you to book a suite with two separate bedrooms.

Theresa, de voedingsconculente is TOP ! Zij is echt zeeeer goed ! De masseurs zijn zeer goed. De doktersbezoekjes zijn echt waardeloos, net als vorig jaar,zij praten maar wat in het rond .... jammer In het algemeen vind ik het jammer dat hun kennis van het engels zo gebrekkig is, van zodra je een vraag stelt in de Spa is bijna niemand de engelse taal machtig.
Wij hebben zo enorm genoten van ons verblijf in Sha. We gaan zeker weer. Dank voor het zo snel regelen van alles. Wij hebben echt geen enkele op- of aanmerking. Fantastische staff, enorme leuke gasten en een heel goed programma. Dus een 10 met een griffel!!!
de dokters zijn echt niet gemotiveerd en rammelen maar een gesprekje af zonder echt begaan te zijn, de esthetische dokter wil je echt dure behandelingen verkopen terwijl ze amper 2 min naar je huid kijkt de macro biotische consultant Theresa was wel SUPER ! de bediening in het restaurant was super !!!
Beste Marleen, Alles super verlopen, alleen het macrobiotische eten vond ik af en toe behoorlijk zwaar. Maar we hebben binnenkort even contact. met vriendelijke groet, Freek Koster
Jammer dat het water van het mooie buitenzwembad veel te koud was. De indoor pool was prima, met goede faciliteiten w.o. sauna.
Alles was uitstekend geregeld, personeel erg vriendelijk en het restaurant was geweldig.
Het was een heerlijke reis ik heb absoluut genoten de prachtige omgeving en het ontwerp hotel, de spa, het macrobiotisch eten en de uitzonderlijke massages en uiteraard de uitzonderlijk deskundige en vriendelijke personeelsleden hebben me erg goed gedaan ik voel me heerlijk en goed in mijn vel. Mijn doelen heb ik dus absoluut bereikt: detox, relax, ontspannen en een beetje afvallen m.a.w. voor mezelf een keertje zorgen. Wat wel jammer was dat de SPA circuit drie hele dagen gesloten was i.v.m. onderhoud, ik had me wel verheugd om hiervan te genieten alleen was dat niet mogelijk. De kamer is echt bijzonder mooi met een geweldig uitzicht, netjes onderhouden en schoon helaas waren ze twee keer vergeten de 2 waterflessen in de koelkast te doen (water is een must). Donderdag ochtend/middag was er een stoomuitval wat het wel lastig maakte om van de kamer gebruik te maken en de meerdere faciliteiten van SHA. Dank jullie voor de snelle en goede service!
Ik heb vele hotels gezien in mijn leven, maar deze is qua vriendelijkheid van echt al het personeel echt het allerbeste. Het hotel is ook prachtig en perfect onderhouden.Het eten vond ik niet lekker, maar ik geloof wel dat het heel veel goed heeft gedaan aan mijn welzijn. Ik ben herboren, mede dankzij dit macrobiotische eten. Het enige wat ik lastig vond was, dat met name de eerste 2 dagen, je een overladen programma had. De psycholoog in de SHA was mijn inziens de zwakste schakel. Hoe dan ook ik voel me een ander mens en heb eindelijk mijn energie weer terug. Ik zal zeker terug gaan naar dit hotel.
