Finisterra Spa

Guests staying at Martinhal Cascais benefit from the glorious 750m2 Finisterra Spa.

Finisterra means “end of the earth”. It perfectly describes the original Martinhal resort location in Sagres, at the south-westernmost tip of Europe. This place has a historical meaning forever entwined with the DNA of the Portuguese. With its special menu of treatments inspired by Voya and its origins, the spa adds an extra dimension of health and vitality to the guest experience. There is also a sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room to help guests relax before and after treatments.


There are 3 pools at Martinhal Cascais the Pool Hangout, the indoor/ outdoor heated pool next to Finisterra Spa and the Kids Clubhouse pool (heated).

The various areas in the Kids Club have been created to interest and encourage all age groups with a full range of toys, playthings, creative areas and entertainment – from playmats to Play Stations!
