The salt room

new environment within the sensory journey.

The salt cave has been a well-known treatment that has been practiced since the Middle Ages, when the ancients discovered the advantages of breathing in the saline air.

Energising Aromatherapy

The most intense of sensory experiences alternate with one another as guests venture into a distinctive, relaxing room, circular in shape and with satin-finish glass walls, inside which essential oils with purifying properties are nebulised. Energising cinnamon essences are used, and the oils help to purify mind and body as they travel through the air, transmitting a sensation of energy and wellbeing.

Turkish Bath

This treatment is carried out in a room tiled with blue and white mosaics, with a high temperature (40-50%) and relative humidity of 90%.

Calidarium

Immediately following the Melmarium, this is a room saturated with hot steam, with a temperature reaching 55°C. The humid environment prevents the mud applied in the Melmarium from drying out, so the body can absorb the remineralising and detoxing properties of the clay for longer. After about 20 minutes, the mud is removed from the body with a long, hot shower. The contraindications regard sufferers of heart disease and circulatory and blood pressure conditions.

Walk in the River

A 14-metre walk across pebbles smoothed by the stream, which perform an effective foot massage, passing through alternating jets of hot and cold water (from 15°C to 38°C) reaching up to the waist, in a delightful environment tiled with multi-coloured mosaics.

Colour Therapy

The guest lies down on an elegant chaise longue and listens to some music as they watch the various colours spread through the air with colour therapy instruments. The colours projected correspond to the 7 chakras, the energy centres of the body.

Contrast Showers

A circuit of showers elegantly decorated with mosaics in shades of green, which create a series of water effects at various temperatures, with different lights and aromas. The shower heads combine hot and cold water with temperatures that vary from 15°C to 38°C, vaporised and in the form of mist, mixed with fragrant oily essences.

Acqua Santa Source Grotto

In the bowels of the earth, next to the melmarium and the energy pyramid, is the Source Grotto, a simple environment in Travertine stone throughout, with a corridor leading into it. All that is here is a source from which the Acqua Santa water drips from above into a monumental vase

Ice Crash

An ice-white room, tiled in mosaics throughout. An environment in which cold reigns supreme, symbolized by the pure ice dispenser in the centre. This is a place where the guest encounters water in a series of forms and temperatures, from showers to mists through to the impact with blocks of ice for an invigorating shot of energy, ideal for those in search of an “extreme” experience.

Melmarium

In the melmarium, or clay grotto, in Travertine stone throughout, there are three mud tubs containing the precious spa mud, enhanced with fragrant plant essences, which guests spread generously over the face and body, completely independently, as part of a ritual which is playful, relaxing and relieves tension. A few minutes after application, the guest moves on into the calidarium, a room filled with hot steam, with temperatures that reach 55°C. The contraindications regard sufferers of heart disease and circulatory and blood pressure conditions.

Music Therapy

The guest lies down on an elegant chaise longue and listens to some music as they watch the various colours spread through the air with colour therapy instruments. The colours projected correspond to the 7 chakras, the energy centres of the body. Linked to the chakras are organs, parts of the body, the nervous system and the blood flow, so their proper functioning is instrumental to optimal health.

Cool Mist

An ice-white room, tiled in mosaics throughout. An environment in which cold reigns supreme, symbolized by the pure ice dispenser in the centre. This is a place where the guest encounters water in a series of forms and temperatures, from showers to mists through to the impact with blocks of ice for an invigorating shot of energy, ideal for those in search of an “extreme” experience.

Energy Pyramid

A narrow passage leads into a pyramid in Travertine stone, built with one side facing north in accordance with the proportions of the pyramid of Khufu, one of the seven wonders of the world, the largest and most ancient of the three pyramids of the Giza necropolis.

Etruscan Sauna

Right next to the cold showers, in the fire area with the traditional sauna and the Turkish bath, the Etruscan sauna is a delightful experience among red mosaics, with temperatures of between 45°C and 50°C and a humidity level of 60 – 70%. The name derives from the typically Tuscan aromas of lavender and rosemary from the lands of ancient Etruria that pervade the atmosphere.

Finnish Sauna

The classic Finnish sauna involves a stay in a cabin with wooden benches, where the temperature is taken up to about 80-100°C and the humidity to 10-30%. This first dry air bath is followed by a hot steam bath created by pouring water over boiling-hot stones. Inside the sauna is a small brazier with a number of stones, a bucket of water and a ladle.

Inner Silence Room

E’ una stanza molto suggestiva, buia e con musica emozionale, rivestita di morbido tessuto scuro. Un ambiente tondeggiante ed insonorizzato, sollevato da terra con il sistema di realizzazione delle palafitte; le vibrazioni del terreno sono praticamente azzerate e si garantisce ulteriore isolamento acustico. L’illuminazione è ridotta al minimo ed ha toni aranciati.

Saline Pool

Guests are invited to relax in an outdoor pool stretching out into the greenery of the Acquasanta Park, access to which is through the non-saline pools, first inside the Sensory Spa and then on the outside, through an opening activated by a sensor. The pool is filled with salt water at a temperature of around 38°C, and all guests have to do is lie back and leave all their cares behind, gently cradled by the natural movement of the water, with no water jets. The warm temperature enhances the relaxing effect, relieving tension and relaxing the muscles, also helping to free the mind. There are no contraindications.

Sensory Pool

The Sensory Pool, in a niche with a graceful, enveloping shape, is a pool with water at a temperature of 36°C, filled with plant therapy aromas. This distinctive experience is further enhanced by colour and music therapy infused through the water, and the elegant atmosphere is filled with energising lights and stimulating oriental and New Age music able to keep the mind alert without over-stimulating it. This experience allows guests to enjoy a wide range of positive effects, with the benefits of aromatherapy, music therapy and plant therapy combining with those of colour therapy for a totally relaxing effect followed by complete regeneration. The absence of stimuli from the outside relaxes the mind, providing a fresh shot of energy. The contraindications regard serious circulatory and heart problems.

Relaxation Pools

Large pools inside the spa that continue on the outside, stretching out into the extraordinarily beautiful greenery of the Acquasanta Park, all in Travertine stone and with a water temperature of 36°C. Here, guests can relax and enjoy the movement of the powerful jets of water that make waves in sequence through the various zones of the pools. Lying on comfortable chaises longues, seated on the benches or standing on the insufflation plates, guests may choose water-jet massages to the back, whole body or neck muscles, by positioning themselves in the outdoor pools under the powerful jets of water that spring from fountains with a linear, elegant design. These jets relax the body, model and ease the shape, and the slight contraction and relaxation effect on the blood vessels stimulates the whole body system.
