The resort revolves mostly around one thing: water. The Fountain of Youth, better digestion, higher concentration, improved mood and energy — those benefits are just the result of drinking it. Sparkling and still mineral water taps are located throughout the resort so white robed guests stay hydrated as they wander around from sauna to spa treatment and then in for a swim. Soothing trickling sounds from water fixtures resonate throughout the hotel. There are over ten thousand square feet of indoor and outdoor pools. ADLER THERMAE is of course known for its thermal waters, a type of mineral water located deep underground, containing healing properties that are exempt from bacteria and pollution. Naturally pure and rich in mineral salts, iodine and CO2, and Selenium, a powerful natural antioxidant, thermal water is recognized for its therapeutic properties, particularly those that concern the skin. Avène, Vichy, and La RochePosay are three beauty brands known for their use of thermal waters in their products. While understudied and existing studies are often funded by cosmetic companies, the therapeutic and cosmetic efficacy of thermal water has been recorded since ancient times. It is most commonly known for treating skin conditions like chronic inflammatory skin diseases and acne. The skin is comprised of a complex ecosystem and a specific mix of minerals, fatty acids, and good bacteria. Washing your face with harsher soaps can often create unbalanced skin. Thermal water could theoretically rebalance this micro environment for healthier skin. Bathe in these healing 122 degree fahrenheit thermal springs and wash away impurities in waves of wellbeing. The thermal pool outside offers exquisite views of Italy’s mountains, crisp green grass, and the tiny historical town of Bagno Vignoni and its tower. If you ever experience vacation guilt, this resort might be for you. While you might not be working on your career or your job during your stay, this space invites you to work on yourself, seriously. With yoga classes, personal fitness trainers and nutritionists, two doctors on the premises, Dr. Stefania Mazzieri and Dr. Michele Bianchini, and almost exclusively healthy food options, it might be impossible to stay at ADLER THERMAE and not return home a better version of yourself.
