The most beautiful spas in the mountains

The two spas attached to two hotel structures are accessible to the public and not only to hotel guests. In particular, the historic Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi in ​​Bormio opened its doors even in 1836 and is a true jewel of liberty architecture: after admiring the façade in Venetian Gothic style, one enters the halls decorated with frescoes and stuccos and in ornate environments with floral motifs. The rooms, then, are ideal for a stay dedicated to the care of the body and mind: if many, in fact, include whirlpool baths with thermal water and some are predisposed to chromotherapy, all overlook the splendid surrounding landscape, between Bormio, the Valdidentro and the Stelvio.

The Bagni Nuovi SPA & Wellness Thermal Center offers spa services in the indoor and outdoor spaces, including the Grotta di Nettuno (detoxifying route in a tunnel that alternates hot and cold and with different environments), the Bagni di Giove (path revitalizing), the Bagni di Ercole (relaxing path) in addition to the gardens of Venus, a huge thermal park with seven outdoor pools and two saunas in the cabin.

To the side, connected by a shuttle, there are the Bagni Vecchi Spa, whose history dates back to Roman times, in particular to the first century BC A panoramic basin overlooking the rock is its flagship, open 12 months a year. And ancient baths and caves make a real leap in history: in the two pools of the Roman Baths, obtained in a cave, travelers of a distant time plunged; the Imperial Baths propose a succession of tanks dedicated to emperors and generals; the Medieval Baths, so named in honor of the Middle Ages, offer a detox experience among saunas set in a fascinating architectural setting; the natural Turkish bath of the Grotta Sudatoria of San Martino, dug into the rock, offers a detoxifying path, inaugurated in 1827.

  1. Dolomia spas in Trentino
    In the Val di Fassa, instead, there are the Dolomia spas, which collect the waters of the Alloch thermal spring, the only sulfur in Trentino, and constitute an oasis of peace and tranquility, where you can take care of yourself and your body. Alloch water is also used for medical thermal cures due to its peculiar properties and is the basis of the therapies offered by Terme Dolomia: hydroponics, inhalation treatment, mud therapy, balneotherapy and motor rehabilitation.

Hydroponics guarantees diuretic, detoxifying and antioxidant effects through an Alloch water drink; the inhalation treatment has a regenerating action on the mucous membranes, repairs the respiratory system and regulates the mucus, stimulating the immune defenses; mud therapy produces, among others, anti-inflammatory and painkiller effects and improves joints; balnotherapy is an anti-inflammatory treatment for the joints and also has a keratolytic action on the skin, giving a particularly smooth and luminous skin. Motor or dry rehabilitation in thermal water with hydrokinesitherapy is also proposed: Terme Dolomia is a center affiliated to Human Tecar for a complete and fast rehabilitation.

The offer on the wellness front is also rich, with numerous facial and body treatments: from smoothing to firming, anti-cellulite, or draining, with mineral salt packs. And there is no lack of hydrothermal treatments, such as face peelings or facelifts, or the Rasul oriental ritual, made with purifying clays.
