Founded by the Etruscans, then taken over by the Romans, the Italian town of Viterbo, at the gateway to Lazio’s rugged northern region, hosts a relatively undiscovered medieval core. Perfectly poised in a peaceful setting just outside of town sits Terme Salus, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. A cool, calm and contemporary retreat, it boasts expansive grounds that house an impressive thermal spa with indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a welcoming restaurant headed up by a Michelin-starred chef.
The rooms occupy a modern, streamlined building, overlooking manicured, statue-strewn gardens. Here, you’ll enjoy unfettered access to a selection of naturally heated outdoor thermal pools of varying temperatures – a welcome prospect during the cooler months. Enjoy a sauna with garden view, taking the plunge in the outdoor frigidarium, or relax to the max indoors, where you’ll find a number of other pools perfect for the cooler months. After a few hours of sublime spa relaxation an amazing night’s sleep is a given.
How to Get There
Great experience, so far the best hotel I tried in the area (I occasionally come to Viterbo for business). The only things I would improve are the croissants.
The thermal pools and the wellness center are amazing.
The Spa is very good, only complaint would be that they have a huge outdoor pool without hot (or even warm) water. It doesn’t make any sense to me. The hotel though is a bit disappointing, I expected more from a 4* hotel. Average room, long empty aisles, average breakfast, and frankly speaking awful location. But if you don’t care and just want to chill out a couple of days at the spa, it’s a good place indeed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Salus Terme. We went seeking a relaxing stay after four weeks traveling with a large group of friends. The mineral spas were the perfect antidote! We really relaxing. The pools are both relaxing and restorative. There are many pools and treatments. The saunas were also great. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel is very clean. We enjoyed a beautiful dinner in the restaurant. The breakfast was nice also. Don’t be put off by the rooms and long corridors as it’s worth going just for the pools.
