Adler Thermae Resort and Spa in Tuscany received the Spafinder Wellness Award 2015 for Best Hot Springs.
Winners were selected by a panel of 33 travel and wellness industry editors and experts who nominated 504 properties for consideration before narrowing the field to finalists in 53 countries and regions and by consumers who voted for their favorite locations across 20 categories.
The Sanoner family, owner and designer of the Adler Group, is delighted and honored to have received this award. The family has been hands-on pioneers in the wellness industry, opening their first resort in the Dolomites, Adler Wellness & Sport Resort in 1810, decades before the wellness industry was in vogue. In the late 1990’s they discovered an extraordinary thermal site in Tuscany and in 2004 opened a new spa and wellness retreat, Adler Thermae Spa & Resort.
The healing waters and hot springs are at the heart of Adler wellness. The spa is built as an antique rural villa surrounded by gardens, and only a few hundred metres from the small village of Bagno Vignoni. Thermal water vapors and medieval towers create a surreal atmosphere in the heart of Tuscany and flow into the spa offering the rejuvenation first discovered by the Etruscans hundreds of years ago. These waters are the basis for many treatments such as Argillae, the Etruscan Clay Bath, with roots dating back to ancient ceremonial traditions and the Grotta Salina.
Facilities include 50°C warm thermal springs and an unmatched choice of pools, baths and saunas including an indoor-outdoor semi-Olympic swimming pool in the luscious hills of Tuscany.
