Located in Maremma, one of the most strikingly beautiful corners of Tuscany, the award-winning Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort is centred around an ancient travertine stone building on the site of a rich thermal spring which dates back beyond the Etruscan era.
Legend tells of Saturn, God of the Harvest, striking a volcanic crater with a mighty thunderbolt, causing a river of warm, mineral-infused waters to rush over the valley of Saturnia. Generations of bathers have enjoyed the health-giving properties of the waters, which gush from the spring at a rate of 500 litres per second and at a constant temperature of 37° C. Impressive Roman baths lead from the elegant hotel to the warm spring, which feeds four pools, a Jacuzzi, waterfalls and waterways.
An overriding philosophy of seeking harmony with the natural environment is reflected in each inch of the territory.
Set in a strategic position, 150 km north of Rome and 200 south of Florence, in the ultimate south border of the Tuscan region. Very few destinations can offer visitors art, tradition, history and sports – such as horse-riding and mountain-bike trips – in an almost pristine landscape.
The Maremma is a region containing the best of Italy: its hills, covered in thick undergrowth, defined by horizons of wild beauty; its sea, one of the clearest, is bordered by long uncrowded beaches such as Monte Argentario’s and Porto Ercole’s.
The villages surrounding the resort seem to watch over everything from on high: Pitigliano, Saturnia, Montemerano, Manciano, Semproniano and Sovana are places where Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance memories merge together in delightful harmony.
Terme di Saturnia’s range of 128 elegantly appointed rooms and suites have been designed to create a harmonious habitat for mind and body, expressed in thoughtfully selected flooring, atmospheric lighting, and the warm tones of the fabrics and finishing, creating an ambience of total well-being. All rooms feature air conditioning, mini-bar, telephone, television, satellite TV and safe deposit box.
Terme di Saturnia’s fine dining at Ristorante Aqualuce embraces the gastronomic tradition of the region, serving exceptional Tuscan fare bursting with strong, authentic flavours, together with a mouth-watering range of creative and beautifully presented international dishes.
Recently awarded with One Michelin Star, Ristorante All’Acquacotta serves the Grande Carte where the Executive Chef Giuseppe Zibetti’s masterful menus are a wholehearted testament to the importance of incorporating the enjoyment of food into the journey to complete wellbeing.
Those who prefer lighter, more health-conscious meals can also choose among the Spa Menu Rebalance@Saturnia rich in homegrown produce from the vegetable garden inhouse.
Terme di Saturnia’s Spring Bar offers a range of creative cocktails made from the freshest fruits and vegetables, including arugula, carrots and pineapple. The thermal pool park also includes a welcoming Spa Café.
Spa & Wellness
The 53-treatment room, state-of-the-art SPA at Terme di Saturnia focuses on improving guests’ wellbeing through the five equally fundamental and integral elements of hydrotherapy, fitness, beauty, stress management and nutrition. For an atmosphere of total wellbeing, the spa’s design includes soothing interiors and chromotherapeutic lighting by Parisotto & Formenton Studio, and evocative installations by German artist Herbert Hamak.
An extensive menu of specialist regenerative treatments is based on the therapeutic powers of the natural spring waters, including mud therapy, inhalation and Roman baths.
The spa’s beauty menu includes a full range of massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs.
A comprehensive medical spa offers a series of aesthetic therapies and innovative, personalised well-being programmes.
The spa’s expertise in diagnostics and the anti-ageing process is embodied by the exclusive signature Medical and Anti-Oxidant Programmes, in which the most suitable treatments to preserve and repair are recommended accordingly.
The guests are also advised on how to maintain a healthier, balanced lifestyle as part of a ‘take home’ formula, so that a deepened sense, and understanding, of their individual wellbeing lasts well beyond their time in Saturnia.
A ‘world away from a spa’, The Ultimate is a private luxury relaxation area dramatically decorated in black and dark grey, offering guests the ultimate in exclusive treatments, such as the Oxygen Infusion and the Saturnia Gold Facial. All treatments incorporate Terme di Saturnia’s own skin care range, based on the plankton and minerals that are harvested from Satunia’s thermal springs.
Global well-being is the objective pursued by Terme di Saturnia through the programme Rebalance@Saturnia which helps guests re-discover lost physical and mental energy by guiding them towards a healthy lifestyle and showing that the combination of physical activity and balanced eating can help with many problems caused by “dietary mistakes” and a “sedentary” approach.
Global well-being should inspire all our activities and should make us choose the best for ourselves each and every day. We know it is not easy, so we need to apply a little common sense. Take a break at least once a year from daily routine and unwind: leave everything behind you and set off for an oasis where you will be lovingly cared for, pampered and guided step by step towards physical and mental re-birth.
Terme di Saturnia can be that oasis. Here the individual is the centre of attention. Here we work for your health that equates to mental and physical balance to be tackled from all sides.
The diet is a fundamental area for our health. This must be joyful and gratifying as nourishing our body correctly through the consumption of necessary substances unquestionably has a positive effect on our state of mind. The method of cooking and the various tricks of the trade suggested by the chef during the cooking workshop will help to simplify daily life and the rules for the use of food will help make correct choices come automatically.
The initial visit by a doctor, followed by that of the Spa tutor, is an important starting point for the development of reciprocal awareness and the strategy that you will build together.
A balanced mental and physical condition that can only be achieved through a programme that, with the help of the expertise of a team of professionals, takes into account and integrates fundamental factors such as: balanced diet, exercise, spa treatments, benefits of the thermal water, the philosophy of habitat and nature and that, at the end of the stay, will leave guests with invaluable information and strategies that can be easily followed at home as well.
Rebalance@Saturnia has been devised by the team of doctors, specialists, the Executive Chef Giuseppe Zibetti and the dietist Elena Piovanelli.
Terme di Saturnia has also developed its Signature Skin-care line incorporating the spring’s thermal plankton.
