Ragnar's warming wellness centre
Kismet's dramatic spa
Styled by Reymond Langton Design, the spa on board 95.2 metre Kismet is finished with dark and dramatic colours, located deep in the yacht's interior in a cosy and meditative space. Rich-coloured stones blended with glass and carved woods set the scene for relaxation before guests unwind in the hammam, spa pool, cold plunge pool, steam shower or massage room.
La Datcha's atmospheric spa
La Datcha's lower deck aft hosts a wellness centre complete with a traditional hammam and Finnish sauna, as well as a fully equipped gym.

There's also a hot tub and massage room for unwinding after a busy day exploring.
Tatiana's secret leisure centre
When Tatiana is anchored the aft door and side terraces unfold, revealing her main attraction; an inviting spa. The leisure space encompasses two pools, one above the other and two bars, one exterior on the upper level, the other on the lower deck at the forward end of the pool.
Light comes from reveals in the walls and small LED lights shining like tiny stars over a lounge adjacent to a shell door. Glass columns, Carrara marble anda backlit blue agate floor near the bar complement the teak deck that surrounds the pool. There’s also a cosy massage room with another shell door, for a massage en plein air, a shower and a steam room to round out the luxurious space.
Life Saga's spa and gym
The owner of 65 metre Life Saga’s “doesn’t go indoors unless the weather is diabolical,” according to her captain, but he does, there's an exeptional spa at his disposal. The beach club, which opens on three sides, has a spa pool, built-in sun pads, a sauna. If these aren’t reasons to go in and relax, then maybe the massage area or “emotional shower” are? Another notable feature is the technogym exercise equipment adjacent to the pool.
