Spa in Val Gardena: Relaxing ideas for your time together
Do you know what it’s like to feel that you have no energy left, when you just need to take a break and switch off for a few days? Val Gardena in South Tyrol is the perfect place to rediscover your inner peace and simply allow yourself to go with the flow.
A place of harmony and beauty, made all the more exciting by the famous Sella Massif, the Passo Gardena and the world famous Saslong A and B ski slopes – with the Dolomites in the background radiant in their full glory.
The Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel lies right in the centre, crowned by majestic mountain peaks and the idyllic ambience that makes this area so special. We saw some breath-taking photos on social media and decided it would be our next holiday destination!
Arriving at the hotel, we are greeted with a seriously refreshing drink and delicious snacks. Moving to the Granvara’s bar lounge, we then enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and a scrumptious alcohol-free cocktail.
We spend these first precious moments on the new outdoor terrace which offers incredible views and, thanks to the romantic fireplace and other attentive details, creates a delightful ambience of wellbeing.
After some gourmet treats which delight both the eyes and the stomach, it’s time to take care of the soul.
Finally you can relax and clear your mind.
We deposit our suitcases in our suite. When stress threatens to take over, it's time to simply stop, allow your thoughts to wander and seek out some peace and quiet.
Simply shake off your everyday stresses and rediscover your creativity and motivation. Your mind is clear: off you go.
We enter the “Granvara Vital” SPA, where you can enjoy water in its purest form: We dive into the outdoor whirlpool. When we resurface, we open our eyes: the majestic Sasso Lungo stands before us.
The 32°C water feels simply divine.
As we splash around in the water, we admire the new facade of the Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel: a perfect symbiosis of timber and glass that sets off the magic of the surrounding area perfectly.
Don’t think: just enjoy.
The word “immerse” is more than appropriate here. When you enter the aroma steam bath, it feels as if you are discovering a new world and leaving the old one – along with its worries and sorrows – behind.
The beneficial heat is enriched with natural aromas: a calming combination. Our next stop: the laconium. The lower temperature allows your body to slowly adjust to the heat and therefore profit from its beneficial and cleansing effects for longer.
Release tensions: simply let them float away.
An unbelievable discovery: the water therapy bed. It not only relaxes body and soul, but has a revitalising effect which sharpens the senses. We were thrilled to experience this uplifting treatment: its positive effects could be clearly felt on the ski slope the next day.
We then treat ourselves to a well-earned massage: ideal for releasing muscle tension. The honey massage is a true revelation: an intensive treatment that alleviates muscle tensions in the back and rids the body of toxins.
No effort: just pure energy.
After a fascinating yet energetic day on the slopes we can hardly wait to return to the spa world of the Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel. An evening in the brand new Wine Lounge.
Our fantastic holiday is drawing to a close, accompanied by a full-bodied Pinot Noir Trattmann Mazon 2015 and breath-taking panoramic views. We raise a glass to the superbly organised team at the Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel.
We will definitely be returning to this hotel in Val Gardena next year; it has helped us to fall in love with the location and to strengthen our love for each other during this romantic holiday in South Tyrol.
