"Water is the principle of things. All things are from water and all things are resolved into water."
This phrase from the philosopher Thales of Miletus was our inspiration for the design of our Acqua Minera
world of water. All around our hotel, Alpine springs and streams abound, brimming with pure, crystal-clear water rich in essential minerals. The water gurgles along, seemingly happy and carefree, a primordial fountain of life for Mother Nature. For man, water is not only essential for life itself, it is synonymous with relaxation and re-birth. It was this view that guided us in creating our new world of water, which we have called Acqua Minera
, and which, together with Spa Minera
, offers our guests an area of 4,000 m2, a facility that to call a mere wellness centre would be an injustice. In fact, the Spa is now acknowledged as one of the most exclusive in the whole of Europe.
The many features of this aquatic landscape are truly striking. The indoor section of the world of water features a 20-metre swimming-pool and a relaxation tub, while outdoors there is a second swimming-pool, a natural pool and a hydromassage tub in which to swim or simply relax. As from December, 2018, on request of our guests the open-air salt-water pool with its built-in hydromassage system is a nude bathing area.
Between April and December, 2018, Acqua Minera has been extended and transformed into an oasis of wellness. When building the world of water, we focused closely on sustainability and the use of local materials. The new structure features a rooftop terrace as well as a fantastic open-air section with a natural pool and an extensive area set aside for sunbeds. The view of the surrounding mountains, with the delightful Santa Maddalena church built in 1480 by local miners in the foreground, is simply stunning. The panoramic fitness centre and the yoga and meditation area offer breathtaking views through the glazed walls. Nature is all around, thanks to the seamless separation of internal and external spaces. Here your daily fitness regime will take second place to a sensation of peace and tranquillity.
