of November, 2004. The spa Balneario Aquaestética in
Madrid, opened its doors to naturists after having reached
an agreement with the ADN. The first Sundays of every month,
naturists have this spa all for themselves. If you are a member,
(you belong to AND or to another association of the Spanish
Naturist Federation), you get a reduction of 11€; that
is, a 50% discount.
For that first day, the ADN handed out free tickets among
members and friends for the grand opening. Over 500 people
spent that afternoon at the spa. That means that it has become
the event the greatest number of naturists has ever attended.
Before the beginning and for the first half hour, the media
fought for the coverage. SER had its telephones collapsed,
Antena 3, Tele 5, Tele Madrid and MTV, (the latter for the
first time ever), brought their cameras inside to report the
Here below we show a few pictures in which we can only see
a small part of the premises, which offer among others, Roman
bath, Hamam (steam), Sauna, Scottish and scent showers, etc...
A short look back at
how we managed to have the spa.
The ADN board had decided to provide naturists with a spa
in Madrid for their recreation. That was one, among other
projects for the years 2003-4, which the board intended to
achieve. It would add to the swimming pool, which we can currently
attend every first Saturday of the month.
To that purpose, members were put to the task and among most
of the spas in the city, three were selected as candidates.
An agreement was reached with a spa in Embajadores. However,
the shareholders vetoed the agreement at the last moment.
Ricardo Peña, member No. 150, talked to the people
at Aquaestética Spa Madrid, which is the place he attends
regularly. Aquaestética also agreed. Then Carlos Gil
visited the premises and reached a favourable deal, which
was further improved after a telephone conversation with the
ADN president, also throwing in a free invitation to the opening
Another members, No. 588-9, contacted the third spa, which
is part of a hotel, and is still to be visited by somebody
from the board.
