What can you tell us about your luxury spa?
The Grand Resort Bad Ragaz offers 13,000 sqm of wellbeing and relaxation. With this amount of spa area, we are proud to say that we have the biggest spa in Europe! It contains our Thermal Spa, the public thermal bath & spa “Tamina Therme”, 10 pools, a dedicated Family Spa and a total of 9 saunas, with an exquisite ice grotto to cool down after your sauna session. Europe’s leading wellbeing & medical health resort is centered around a bathing tradition spanning hundreds of years. The healing effects of the thermal water from the Tamina gorge has been recognized for centuries. Today, it remains at the heart of our spa and wellness complex.
What makes you unique?
The resort has its own hot spring. Benedictine monks discovered the hot spring in the Tamina gorge in 1242. To this day, the 36.5°C thermal water is used for the renewal of the body, mind and soul. The special mineral content and 36.5°C temperature have a range of positive effects on the human body, such as boosting the metabolism and circulation and improving cardiac function. Furthermore, the thermal water helps to alleviate rheumatic ailments, diseases of the nervous system, and lung and kidney issues.
You can bathe in the water but also drink it, either way it is good for your body. When you bathe in it, it has a positive effect on your muscles, your skin and bones. If you drink the water, it is very good for your digestive organs and it makes you happy because it contains lyceum.
What do you recommend as the ultimate treatment?
Our Director of Spa and Wellbeing warmly recommends the haki Flow Deluxe Treatment. In the specially created “haki®– The Art of Touch” treatment room, we got together with Harald Kitz, the developer of the haki philosophy, to create a new dimension of treatment rituals. The interplay of infrastructure, atmosphere and treatment is highly effective in eliminating both physical and emotional pressure. During a haki Flow treatment the body is pulled, stretched, sensed and perceived. Thanks to the natural progression of the haki treatment, we can now elongate and rotate not only the shoulders, neck and head, but also the entire length of the spine and pelvis. The master therapist guides the body through the water and you will be able to feel your body stretching and becoming longer. With lightness, riding a wave: for everyone who loves water and its healing power. You will experience your very own private downtime with haki Flow deluxe. In the early hours of the morning, before the Tamina Therme opens for the day, we offer you the opportunity to experience haki Flow in a unique atmosphere. Take the time to unwind – especially for you.
