The accommodation has a dedicated gym area for your exclusive use with concept ergo machines, CV machines and weights resistance machines. The Spa is also reknown for its healing and recovery properties with many of the visiting International teams building Spa Time into their training programs.

The Spa Hotel Laias is based immediately alongside the boating area so would be classified as on-site. 

The Spa Hotel Arnoia Caldaria is also based beside its own boating area. The hotel has 89 rooms.

In both hotels, the rooms are double rooms, but can be used as singles if required. A small number of rooms have wheelchair access. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, heating/air-conditioning and TV. 

At both locations you will find many typical spa treatments available along with aromatic baths, jacuzzi, wet and dry cabins, contrast pools (indoors and outdoors), aromatic showers, heated loungers. 

Meals are served buffet style in the restaurant and the menu is designed for high performance athletes. 


Rowing & Canoeing

Rowing

 

The Castrelo de Miño reservoir is 10km long and the Frieira reservoir is 18km long. Both have a 2,000m buoyed (with the "Albano System") racing course marked. The time of year determines the numbers of lanes marked out.

There is a purpose built boating area directly adjacent to the accommodation making access very easy. Boats are stored on outside racking.  

The reservoir runs NE–SW orientation which gives good shelter from wind. Windy days are extremely rare in this part of Spain, but never more than 8 m/s. 

The accommodation has spa treatments which can be used by the athletes to help their recovery. 

Coaching launches can be hired from the centres. Currently there are 6 launches available at each centre.

BOAT HIRE: Boat hire can often be arranged subject to confirmation at booking time.
