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
Nice facility with thermal spa, hotel, restaurant. Very friendly staff, they offer complete services for this kind of structure. Indoor and outdoor pools (water of 36 Celsius degrees!!!). Adults only orientated, very relaxing, looks like something "far from the madding crow". Only one hour away from Rome, right near Viterbo, great place for sightseeing, eating and shopping. A great place for locals and tourists as well. Take your time and enjoy!
We booked the Hotel Salus Terme very last minute (on the afternoon of arrival) as we were escaping from another hotel that we had booked (it was so awful we had to leave). We were so relieved when we arrived at the Salus Terme - it was clean and well presented, and the spa facilities were wonderful. The evening meal was delicious and they even had a vegan menu available. Breakfast was great, lots of options and attentive staff. It was the perfect place to rest and relax before a road trip up through Tuscany.
The spa facilities in this place apart from sometimes getting busy are brilliant. Tr pool is like you are in a very hot bath and spring water so it's brilliant if you like this sort of stuff if not there is another 2 colder options that if great near the bar. If you will stay and use the facilities this is your hotel. Location wise there is a lake nearby and an hr to the sea but if you want to enjoy stay in this hotel and use the included spa. I didn't not any massages but the staff in the so are good. The checkin and reception staff are ok. Firstly the downside of this hotel is the breakfast. Lack of items for a 4 star hotel. Also the staff in this area are scarce and very unhelpful. The room looked tired and in need of a revamp. The bed was noisy although for this I wasn't charged for the use of the mini bar so thank you for that. It's slightly away from Rome but the swimming pool is what you are going for then it doesn't matter. The mini bar and pool bar are not cheap. Around €4 a drink overall. Small balcony with not much of a view.
Located about 2-3 km outside of Viterbo this hotel is not in the greatest of locations with regards to sightseeing the local town / city. It's a large hotel, but having said that the staff I encountered were impossibly good and although the long corridors with rooms on each side lend an impersonal aura the interior decorating and furnishings give a warm and welcoming feeling. The gardens and 5 swimming pools are a pleasure and the dinner and breakfast I ate there were both very good. Again, the staff were a highlight as much as the food. It was a pleasant stay for one night and I wish I could have taken more advantage of the spa facilities. Oh - logging onto the wii-fi is an impossibly long process and internet speed once you're logged on is not great.
We went for a relaxing day at the spa. The first impression of the hotel was clean. The room,hotel,restaurant and the spa were so clean and the all stuff was nice and kind. We didn't have special massage . We just entered the pool out and inside. Sauna outside and steam bath inside are the other options if you don't have any special therapy. We could relax with the pools but ı couldnt feel the atmosphere of SPA.Maybe it was my problem???
I wish you can enjoy it
