Once the much-loved summer spa residence of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Francesco Stefano of Lorena, Bagni di Pisa was famous across the region and attracted 18th-century Tuscan society. Today, it’s a masterpiece of loving restoration, offering a five-star luxury accommodation, a keen sense of history and an element of intuitive contemporary-design. Unsurprisingly, it scooped a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014.
It’s located close to the Leaning Tower of Pisa – so close, in fact, you can even see it in the distance. But it’s not just the view that makes this place so special. The hotel sits on top of several thermal springs which date back to Roman times, and offers a full-spa service experience with an extensive treatment menus. Inside the hotel, you’ll find a feast for the eyes, with 18th-century interiors, vaulted ceilings and marble floors. In the restaurant, it’s a feast of an entirely different kind – the unmissable, delectable, Italian kind.
How to Get There
We have just returned from a lovely stay in Bagni Di Pisa, and already planning a return visit! The hotel is stylish and elegant, the staff all lovely, and the food delicious! The building is an old palace, and the decor still reflects that, with an amazing fresco on the ceiling in the bar, and lovely paintings dotted around. The hotel is very quiet, and conveniently located for the train station with a regular - cheap! - service to Pisa and Lucca. The Spa areas are good - the thermal waters are soooo warm (and not sulphurous like some can be) and they are kept immaculately clean. The treatments were on the expensive side which was a shame. The outdoor pool was lovely - just a shame the weather wasn’t good enough for us to be able to sit out. All the more reason to return!
Wow! What a lovely experience we had at this hotel it deserves its 5 star status, the spa is lovely and so warm the treatments just soo relaxing, the staff at the hotel are on hand to help with anything you need, food was lovely and the area beautiful- what more could you want
The Hotel was really comfortable, clean and excellent service. Breakfast was excellent. The staff were very professional, smiling and welcoming. The Checkin was excellent as we arrived early - nothing was too much trouble and our lugagge was safely looked after and taken to our room. The bathroom was impressive and bed very comfortable. We didnt eat dinner as it started a little late for us - but there were a few cafes in town within easy walking distance. The spa was fabulous - although spend a little time working out where the amenities are as they are in 2 areas.
I took a one week equilibrium programme that totally exceeded my expectations. The programme is carefully planned and the staff are extremely qualified. But above all excited and very dedicated! They concentrate in you as an individual and make you feel part of a warm hearted family.
The diet to be followed always includes options and the healthy food is as delicious as you wish to have when eating in Italy. The dietist and chef are spectacular artists when it comes to food. And, the programme includes a lesson with the chef!
When it comes to the place itself and the hotel, I was very much enjoying the old building and the way it has been renovated. I still miss the beautiful ceilings above the terme pools and relaxing areas.
I highly recommend Bagni di Pisa if you are in a need of a getaway. Don't plan to see around, visit nearby cities, because you will not want to go anywhere while being there.
All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. When we checked in it was assumed that I would like a massage after our day in Pisa. I said I would quite like a foot massage. I was taken to the spa reception area to book it. When I arrived for the foot massage in the evening, I think there must have been a misunderstanding due to language, but I received a full body Thai massage, which was absolutely fantastic, but what I really wanted was a massage on my feet. When we checked out, we had been charged 150 euro for the body massage, I would never ever have booked a full body massage had I known the price. I cannot blame anyone in particular, maybe it was down to my ignorance and lack of experience of staying in luxury spa hotels, but I do think this could have been communicated more clearly. We struggled to find anything to eat in the dining room as it was all too extravagant for our tastes, and there was absolutely nowhere to eat anywhere near the hotel, so we had to make do with a pizza from the kid's menu for my 16 year old son and 2 desserts for me and my husband. That "meal" cost us a further 100 euro, but we had no alternative. The room itself was beautiful, my teenage son particularly enjoying sleeping on a mezzanine floor. I would recommend this hotel to stay in, as long as you are used to eating things like spaghetti with squid ink.
