Portuguese term or phrase: duches de Cuba
Hoje o Estabelecimento Termal, remodelado e reequipado, e o novo Spa, cujas obras foram recentemente concluídas, encontram-se dotados das mais modernas técnicas termais e de bem-estar, possibilitando assim dar resposta às expectativas dos Termalistas que as frequentam, e ainda adequar-se à crescente procura na área do Turismo de Saúde, Beleza e Bem-Estar. Desta forma o Estabelecimento cria novas valências, de onde se destacam a Piscina Dinâmica, ***os duches de Cuba**, Pulverização e Sequencial 3 essências e ainda uma vasta área de gabinetes de Massagem e Estética termal, bem como um moderno Ginásio. Foram criadas também diversas áreas de serviços e comércio. Todo este conjunto modernamente edificado constitui, hoje, um grande Complexo Turístico-Termal localizado bem no centro da Estância Termal do Gerês.

I haven't found any information about this kind of treatment so I don't really know how to translate this expression.

Can you help me?

Thank you!

walk-in shower


Explanation:
Definitely NOT Cuban shower! “Cuba” is a basin, in Portugal it means a walk-in shower enclosure.

neutral  Oliveira Simões: In your reference "cuba" is non-capitalized. Probably not the same "Cuba" as in the term question! Notice the lack of context and the wide range of responses! Enough not to make any definite claims, don't you think?

Bucket shower


Explanation:
There seem to be several meanings of duche de Cuba (with a capital 'C'.
The one that seems most likely to me in this context is a bucket shower, where you pull a rope to tip a bucket of water over yourself.

waterfall shower


Explanation:
Just another idea to look into, although I am aware that I may also be wrong !
Anyhow, the photo in this link shows a lady under a shower, found within a swimming pool, so term could possibly be translated as waterfall shower.

The reason I have assumed that this image, halfway down the page, relates to the term "duches de Cuba" is because,in the article on this page, the term appears immediately next to "Piscina Dinâmica", which is a long-shot, but you never know....!
"...beleza e bem-estar. Piscina Dinâmica, duches de Cuba."


Example sentence(s):
  • "swimming pool and spa pool stainless steel WATERFALL for pool shower "
  • "steel pool spa WATERFALL"
