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
Great place to relax, enjoying the impeccable hospitality of the Terme di Saturnia staff and the top notch hotel and spa. Great food in the area, 4-5 top wine and food experience in few km radius. Vineyards to visit and lots more. A week there and you don’t get the time to try all of this.
Two top attractions, in my opinion, the spa pool is built just on top of the thermal source, the water is warm and chilling out in the pool is fantastic.
And If you are a golfer, you have 18 holes within the complex, very nice course. Give it a try with the pro Giuseppe who’s incredibly good and encouraging and don’t forget to get a byte at the club house....superb traditional cuisine.
Expensive but worth it.
The hotel is very nice. Situated just under the old town of Saturnia and a 2 kilometers from the famous "Cascata del Mulino". It was renovated and expanded, from an ancient petit hotel. The principal pool stands just over the thermal spring. The water is very clear and has some algae floating. Very natural. It has dry sauna and Hammam. The environment is wide and has many armchairs. Very good facilities. Beside I dont play golf, it has a nice court.
In general terms the staff is excellent; at the front desk, the cleaners, at the restaurant and at the bars.
The Restaurant is expensive and medium quality. Has a bad ratio quality/price. And sometimes the maitre puts pressure on you, with impatience, to decide what are you going to order.
The only thing that is not homogeneous are the masseurs. Some are very good and others do not do their best in the massages. Try to find out very well who is doing your massage and how good is she.
Such a let-down was hard to imagine when we arrived recently. We had booked for the Thermal Baths which are part of this hotel and we therefore drove up the gated hotel entrance. I buzzed and explained, the person who responded said something which could not be heard as the sound quality was dreadful. When I questioned their response they opened the gate and slammed the phone down. Nice. We then asked a hotel car park man and he directed us, we needed another road as the baths have a different road. So we followed his directions and with alot of difficulty we found the right place. NO signposts. We parked in the alloted car park and then it took us 15 minutes to find the right door!!!!
Having debated leaving we stuck with it and phoned reception for help, she came out and showed us the way. Well luckily the pool was FANTASTIC and an amazing experience but the structure seems to be falling apart and really needs alot of repair as well as some new and trained staff.
Despite the water I vowed never to return. Shame.
I do travel a lot and stay very often at LHW Hotels. Unfortunately I was not fully satisfied. I guess because I came with higher expectations to this hotel (before we stayed at Hotel Royal, Sanremo and Golf Resort Monte Argentario) .
Rooms and bath rooms are ok but not more. Breakfasts delivered to room were excellent.
The style of the hotel is not mine ...
Good standard but in my opinion too boring.
Difficulties (massive) delays at check-out (car service (we were in hurry to leave).
Golf course is good and handling of reservation was good and efficient.
The Concierge (old school) Alessandro is excellent! Together with the pool the highlight at the hotel, we received fantastic restaurant recommendations from him!
The price level is (a bit) too high, for what the guests gets delivered.
My husband booked a one night stay for my birthday in December. I have been to the spa hotel around 6 or 7 times over the years sometimes alone and sometimes with my family, i love the water its very healing and the food is good too, when booking my husband did mention it was my birthday , however on arrival the receptionist manager who did see I was a return guest and recognised me was I thought quite aloof and cold , I am a business owner myself and would record a return customers birthday or make a note at the time of booking and at least greet them with a happy birthday I think this is good business practice. Its was quite empty the night we stayed so it did not take a lot to acknowledge guests especially guests who have paid thousands of euro to stay at the hotel over the years. Like I mentioned the water is amazing and rooms are nice, but this time round was a bit disappointed.
