It’s easy to vote for Spa Minera at the Plunhof in South Tyrol

Just to be nominated is a big thrill for us! Since 2010, the World Luxury Spa Awards is an annual highlight for the global luxury spa sector and one of the world’s most important tourism awards. And unlike other awards, nominees face competition from all over the world. The shortlist is exclusively gathered from spas that offer exceptional service and wellness facilities way beyond the average. Guests, clients, visitors and spa lovers alike get to participate as well – and their choices of the best, most beautiful and luxurious spas really do matter as verdicts are based solely on most votes and guest satisfaction. The awards are presented in 32 categories at country, continent and global levels.


Unique mining-themed wellness

You simply won’t find another mountain spa quite like ours in Europe! A jewel in the beautiful South Tyrolean holiday paradise, 4-star superior wellness Hotel Plunhof has caused a sensation with its extraordinary spa concept. Spa Minera is the recipient of numerous accolades, nominated for the GALA SPA AWARD 2016 and awarded ‘Best of Italy’ in the HEALTH & SPA AWARDS 2017. Now the Volgger family and mother Paula are setting a new benchmark with Spa Minera: a total 4,000sqm of ‘wellness above and below the surface’ includes the Acqua Minera poolscape, relaxation roof terrace, panoramic gym, a fitness and Yoga studio – just part of the €6.5 million investment made by the family-run spa hotel. This unique destination spa is a homage to the centuries-old mining tradition around Ridnaun – and whether guests are in the outdoor saltwater Jacuzzi, grotto realm, tunnel pool, tunnel sauna or miner’s house with panoramic relax area, they’re immersed in a fascinating miner’s world while benefiting from the feel-good atmosphere!


Acqua Minera – a new highlight

Just for water lovers: a new 20m pool is linked to a relaxation pool and an outdoor poolscape with new 17m outdoor pool and saltwater Jacuzzi, a 173sqm natural pool with integrated water loungers surrounded by a new 500sqm relaxation space with green terrace and generous sunbathing area. Further relaxation highlights offered by your hosts include new indoor and outdoor relax areas, a new spa and fitness world, pure organic, high-tech and medical cosmetics and signature spa treatments based on the theme ‘power from rock and soil’.
