In southern Tuscany’s Maremma region, Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort is a holistic hideaway surrounded by rolling hills and ancient hilltop towns. Despite its glitzy clientele, this hotel isn’t about obvious glamour, it’s about understated sophistication. Once you’ve made it past the parking lot lined with gleaming Ferraris, you’ll find interiors that use local stone and natural wood, a soothing thermal swimming pool fed by a sulphur-rich spring, a world-class spa and a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves classic Tuscan dishes. It’s a magnet for well-heeled weekenders looking to unwind and indulge.
Bed and Bath
The room categories range from entry level Comfort Rooms to elaborate Grand Suites, which have a kingsize bed, two bathrooms and a spacious lounge. All rooms have been designed with a “habitat philosophy” — natural palettes and subtle lighting — and overlook the rolling Tuscan hills or the steamy swimming pool. The enormous marble-clad bathrooms are stocked with the hotel’s house brand products, which are made from thermal plankton. All rooms come with a pool kit: fluffy robes, slippers and towels.
There are two superb restaurants: Aqualuce, for candlelit Mediterranean dining overlooking the steaming waters, and All’Acquacotta, a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves classic Tuscan dishes made with organic, locally grown ingredients. The daily selection of seared local fish and the decadent nougat crème brûlée are particular highlights, and the wine list is a corker, naturally. As well as fine dining, this hotel packs a punch when it comes to pampering. Its spa offers an array of medical and fitness programs, as well as an extensive treatment menu inspired by the healing local waters: think plankton-based creams and clay body wraps. The famous 24K gold facial is sure to leave you glowing.
In the Area
Borrow one of the hotel’s bicycles and ride to the medieval town of Saturnia. The steep 20-minute ride offers views of olive groves and rustic farmhouses at every turn — not to mention the stone castle that crowns the hill. The nearby town of Montemerano dates back to the Middle Ages; clamber up its winding streets to the stunning Piazza del Castello. Rome and Siena are each about two hours away.
How to Get There
We spent 2 nights of our honeymoon here to unwind and that’s exactly what we did. Rooms are beautifully decorated with maids offering turndown service twice daily. Hotel staff was very attentive to our requests and helpful throughout. Food is excellent, the atmosphere is quiet and peaceful and the pool areas are beyond therapeutic. Would love to return soon. If you are looking to escape life for a while, I recommend this is the place to do so.
This place is perfection. Fantastic thermal pool. The biggest "swimming pool" we have ever seen. Noodle floating is all the rage. Healing waters with really very little smell, once you get used to it. Service is excellent with lots of attendants and a good number of life guards. The rooms are fantastic with lots of lovely touches including bubbly and chocolates. Maid service was exemplary, both morning and turn down service.
The font desk could not have been more helpful, ready with suggestions and solutions to all our inquiries. But it was the dining room which tops the list. Great food, wonderful service and a beautiful poolside position.
I have been to Saturnia five times. It is located in a gorgeous area. It is the perfect choice when traveling to relax, regenerate and enjoy the beautiful Tuscany region in Italy. Staff is very welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable. extremely kind with my daughter and doctor is on location too and can help with giving advice. The food was amazing at dinner in their restaurant and light lunch with my daughter by the pool was quick and easy. During the evening there is live music at times and that I really really love. The benefits of this thermal water on my skin are very close to the miracle. Plus treatments are top. It’s elegant yet not posh nor stiff. There is that beautiful Italian vibe and friendliness in everyone of the staff that makes the stay more pleasurable. I really enjoy every time I and I think that once you bath in this waters it’s very difficult not to go back over and over again to repeat the experience.
