Our VIVA Blue hotel is the triathlete’s paradise.
From January until June, triathletes from all around the world come to visit us and stay with us for training, competitions and sports holidays. In September and October, they all come back again for the end-of-season training camps.
At the end of the day, you are part of the VIVA family and that’s precisely the way we feel about you.
Our main ambassador is Olympic triathlete Mario Mola, who stays regularly at the Viva Blue.
And in Mallorca, because of our climate, scenery and natural environment, we have an extremely active calendar of triathlons, duathlons and aquathlons. The VIVA Blue is the specialist hotel in Mallorca for triathlons. It is located in the Bay of Alcudia, an enclave chosen by Ironman for their 70.3 event in May 2018 and full-distance finals in September. Professional and amateur triathletes travel to train and compete in an idyllic environment for swimming, cycling and running events.
Imagine waking up nice and early and swimming a few lengths in our 25-m pool, heated to between 25–27ºC, with six lanes measuring 2 m each, designed exclusively for training. It is fully equipped with swimming timers, lane dividers, turn indicator flags, pull-up and stretching bars, starting blocks, diving boards and pull buoys. You can also go out to swim in the calm, clean waters of Playa de Muro.
After a hearty breakfast, go out on your bike on a tour around our beautiful island.
A day of pure energy awaits you!
As well as training on the Ironman Full and 70.3 routes with your triathlon bike or road bike, you can set out from the VIVA Blue hotel on all kinds of different itineraries – totally flat, with some steep slopes, or entirely mountainous – thanks to our location and its proximity to the Serra de Tramuntana.
At the Aparthotel Viva Blue, we have one of the most up-to-date and best-equipped cycling centres in Mallorca. The centre is designed to satisfy a cyclist’s every need.
You’ll be a star on two wheels!
If you’re looking to run a route that is close to nature at its most unspoilt, we are right next to S’Albufera Natural Park. In addition, the Ultra trail mountain tracks start less than 5 km from the hotel.
Of course, you can train thoroughly in our fully equipped gym in order to give your best when you go out on a run.
And once you’ve reached that point, what is going to be the icing on the cake?
Every triathlete knows the importance of looking after his or her joints and muscles in order to prevent injury. At our Balneum Spa centre with water circuits, saunas, a Jacuzzi… and a physical therapy centre with physiotherapists who can give you a sports massage, as well as specific treatments for preventing and recovering from sports injuries.
