Switzerland’s luxury health hideway set to reopen

Burgenstock Waldhotel Lobby copy

Bürgenstock Resort, Lake Lucerne, one of Switzerland’s most famous hotels, is to re-open its doors on 28 August 2017.  Following a nine-year, US$ 569 million construction project, the historic hideaway has been restored as an exclusive destination for health, leisure and culture guests.

Many visitors travel to Switzerland for both medical and wellbeing reasons. The Bürgenstock resort is perfectly placed to accommodate them. The Waldhotel Healthy Living is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors, scientists and therapists, devoted to catering to the healthcare needs of guests and patients. It features a treatment portfolio that is focused on the promotion of health through convalescence, medical check-ups, beauty, lifestyle and healthy ageing.

Perched 500 meters above Lake Lucerne, the kilometre-long, car-free resort is accessible by private boat from Lucerne and will comprise four hotels: the five-star superior Bürgenstock Hotel, the five-star Waldhotel Healthy Living, the four-star Palace Hotel and the three-star Pension Taverne 1879.

With a total of 383 rooms and suites, the complex will feature a Healthy Living centre, 12 bars and restaurants, 67 residence suites, a cinema, a 10,000 sqm Alpine Spa as well as a wide range of leisure activities including golf, mountain biking, ice skating and tennis.

The Bürgenstock Alpine Spa features three pools, saunas and a Hammam steam room, whirlpool baths, 15 treatment rooms and three private spas. The Waldhotel and the Alpine Spa both open in autumn 2017..

The resort also captures its energy from the lake. 80% of its thermal and 100% of its cooling requirements are circulated via a network of insulated pipes emanating from an energy distribution centre – a process that is almost carbon neutral.

First imagined by Franz Josef Bucher and Josef Durrer in 1871, the resort rose to fame in the 1950s and 60s, when the biggest names in politics and entertainment would descend on the lake-side paradise, including Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi, US president Jimmy Carter, film stars Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, who married Mel Ferrer in the resort’s chapel in 1954.

Switzerland enjoys increasing popularity due to its reputation for luxury hospitality, crystal blue lakes, alpine forests and snow-capped mountains.

Tuscan resort Adler Thermae extends its wellness facilities

pienza-69411_640

The Adler Thermae Spa & Wellness Resort in Bagno Vignoni has renovated its spa facilities and created two new saunas: a Finnish sauna with panoramic views over the undulating Tuscan hills and a bio-sauna, for those who prefer their sauna considerably cooler than the high Finnish temperatures.

The panoramic Finnish sauna, its plunge pool and relaxation area have 180-degree views over the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia.

This sauna detoxifies the body, flushing out body toxins, deep cleansing pores, strengthening the immune system and stimulating metabolism. Several times a day, a member of the spa team carries out a venting ritual, when waters laced with essential oils are sprayed onto the coals generating calming, energizing and purifying steam, dependent on the oil used.

The new bio-sauna is located in the middle of the spa’s tranquil lake which is set within a disused Travertine quarry; Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs and Adler Thermae is renowned for its thermal waters, which are piped direct from the source at Bagno Vignoni, a few minutes’ walk from the hotel). The bio-sauna helps to clear and regenerate the respiratory tract, relieves muscle tension and joint pain, and also stimulates metabolism.

These two new saunas add to the existing facilities which include Artemisia (a steam sauna with Tuscan herbs), Salino (an Etruscan sauna with salt steam), Grotta del Filosofo (a steam bath in a cave with magical relaxation area), Argillae (a Rasul clay bath) and Grotta Salina (an underground salt bath); the Grotta del Filosofo has also received a complete overhaul.

Adler Thermae has a highly qualified team of doctors and experts onsite who specialise in the fields of regenerative, preventive, complementary and gentle aesthetic medicine to supervise those guests who wish to detox, lose weight or undergo innovative non-invasive aesthetic treatments including mini-lifting with laser or Carb-O-xygen.

There are 87 rooms constructed in traditional Tuscan style, offering views overlooking the region’s hills and a bio-climatisation system that avoids the unhealthy effects of air-conditioning regulating both temperature and humidity automatically through pipe work in the walls, ceiling and floor, to ensure a total wellness experience.

Perugia (Ryanair from Stansted), is the closest airport, followed by Florence, Pisa and Rome.

Full details of all wellness packages available at Adler Thermae can be viewed on the website – www.adler-thermae.com.
