If you were enraptured by Mark’s post yesterday on the new designs at the Hotel Bains de Saillon, then you will love this post. I too was intrigued and thought I’d check out the rest of the hotel for myself and tell you about this amazing place.
Hotel Bains de Saillon
Saillon is a municipality in the district of Martigny in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. As a hot springs aficionado, I really got interested once I figured out the translation of the hotel name literally means, “baths of Saillon”. Digging into the website, I read more and more and the words “vineyard” and “sauna village” kept popping up. Needless to say, so did my level of excitement.
Their website offers this information about the hotel. “The Bains de Saillon and its 4 hotel complex offers a unique thermal experience in the heart of the Valais, on the right bank of the Rhône river, surrounded by vineyards and orchards, just below the remarkable Farinet footbridge, famous counterfeiter with a heart of gold who lived in the area.
With several heated pools, a thermal river, a semi-Olympic pool, the Mayens of well being with saunas and hammam, the Carpe Diem Spa and a children’s area with a giant toboggan and paddling pool, there’s something for everyone.
Our hotel complex has 148 rooms with a breathtaking view of the Alps, themed restaurants, studios and apartments to rent and a free outdoor parking. All our terraces are south facing to make the most of the sunshine.”
The Carpe Diem Spa says it’s a space dedicated to well-being and idleness. Now, how many of you busy Americans can use a good, healing dose of that? With everything available from massage and body wraps to saunas and footbaths, I’d say this is just what the doctor ordered.
With clean lines and those sweeping views of the Alps, I don’t think there’s a bad room in the hotel. They have rooms ranging from a standard to 1 bedroom apartments; all with amazing décor and classic amenities.
The Thermal River and Mayens of Well-Being each have their own unique water experiences. Sauna village, Turkish Bath, Kneipp paths, I don’t know where to start!
I am pretty sure this hotel in charming Switzerland just climbed to the top of my bucket list.
