Useful information/FAQ

1. What is the difference between Les Mariannes and hotels and spas?

We are more focused on the health/wellness aspects of our guests- using a 360 wellness approach- diet, exercise, yoga, meditation, together with physical therapies such as massage, physio. We add to this an international team of therapists in several fields- Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, physical therapists together with medical staff who are all trained in east-west therapies.

However, if a guest wishes to stay at Les Mariannes and have a hotel/spa experience he will also enjoy the facilities and relaxing atmosphere.

2.What type of health conditions do you treat?

In fact, we see a broad range of illnesses – skin, muscular, bones, heart, brain, nervous, digestive, painful conditions and severe cases, like cancer .

But our approach is basically to help the body heal itself- remove the blockages, and let the body do the healing. We use the most advanced diagnostic equipment based on quantum physics- to help us identify these blockages and then design our tailor-made treatment programs to give maximum positive results within a short time.

3. What are the most popular packages?

Basically guests love the detox and lose weight, or detox and rejuvenate package- to lose some weight, get fitter, and boost energy levels.

The stress buster and Immune booster packages are also very much in demand- from busy n=mums, stressed executives and high flying CEO’s.

The pain management protocol is a very successful one- most people after 40 start getting pains and aches- and these are very annoying as they are usually first and active individuals.

We work out a detox program, that will clean and optimize the metabolism by removing toxins in the body- This has amazing effect –pain literally vanishes in a few days.

We also add acupuncture to get rid of chronic painful conditions that affect movements etc.
