Our Top Thermal Experiences

Unwind and let your stresses melt away, take a look at our top thermal spa experiences and heal body and mind:

Vals 7132, Switzerland

Vals in Switzerland is a design and architecture Pandora’s Box, full of delights utterly unique in terms of journey and experience.

Highly mineralised water emerging from St Peters Spring is at the centre of the experience.

Feeding pools which include a thermal pool, outdoor pool, fire pool and blossom pool – the only way to truly understand their benefit is to go and enjoy being completely lost for words.

ESPA at Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore

If there’s only one spa that knows how to make the most of its surroundings, ESPA at Resorts World Sentosa is it.

Offering discovery at every turn, the treatment pavilions and beach villas are entwined within the rainforest setting and serve as unique retreat after an immersive thermal experience.

Reflection pools beautifully complement the forest and the thermal facilities offer a transcendent and uplifting journey.

As you relax in the sauna overlooking the rainforest and see nature do its thing, you can’t help but feel a little thankful.

ESPA Riga, Riga, Latvia

At the heart of the dynamic Latvian capital sits a haven of warmth and tranquillity. Located on the rooftop of the 7 floor spa, the private thermal area is an iconic experience.

Designed specifically to counteract the effect of a cold climate the thermal experiences are extensive – with a labyrinth of steam rooms, saunas, lifestyle showers and heated benches.

Of course, the true hero of the thermal experience is the open air vitality pool heated to 38°C and complete with underwater jets, relax back in the warm hydrotherapy pool whilst the snow falls around you.

The Spa at Gleneagles, Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland

An iconic award winner with the most innovative wellbeing programme in the UK, the thermal experience at The Spa at Gleneagles serves as both a point of ultimate relaxation and essential pre-treatment process.

With separate male and female crystal steams rooms, follow the experience with arctic mist and tropical rain showers.

Large pine clad rock saunas then look over a glass walled unisex vitality pool which offers intense therapeutic benefits through powerful hydrotherapy jets.

Spa Grand, Grand Wailea, Maui, Hawaii

One of the best resorts on Maui, a hydrotherapy circuit designed to be a standalone treatment experience, offers guests something exciting and therapeutic.

Featuring a Roman Tub with cascading waterfalls, Swiss jet showers, a Japanese Ofuro bath and five additional specialty baths, this thermal experience is about getting in touch with what the location has to offer and exploring the Maui traditions of using water to heal.
