Terme di Saturnia Natural SPA & Golf Resort Aerial View

Terme di Saturnia, a 5* Resort with a thermal spa and GEO-certified 18-hole golf course, is a natural oasis set on 120 hectares in the idyllic landscape of Maremma in South Tuscany (less than 2 hours from Rome) at the foot of a medieval village. 

The spring waters of Terme di Saturnia have gushed from the centre of the earth for more than 3,000 years.

Flowing at 500 litres per second from underground at a constant temperature of 37.5°C, it replenishes the Resort’s pools naturally every four hours.

The water makes a 40-year journey underground, gathering power and energy, before rushing up into the Natural Hot Spring Pool at the centre of the Resort.

Centurions and soldiers, Popes and farmers have all bathed here over the centuries.

How Terme di Saturnia natural spring is naturally formed:

Raindrops fall on the slopes of Mount Amiata, the water filters through the ground and fissures of rock; this is the start of a long journey of the source which continues for 40 years underground, gathering power and energy on its way.

It gushes to the surface at 500 litres per second, enriched with minerals, into the Natural Hot Spring at the centre of the Resort.

Travelling at such force it replenishes the pool many times each day. It continues to rush, into the Hot Spring Pools next to the Resort, coursing through five pools, forming water jets and torrents.

From there it flows nearly two kilometres through the meadows of Saturnia to eventually burst out into the limestone and form the iconic waterfalls.

As the water descends, it cools down and the sulphur crystalizes, thus rendering the water brighter and purer and giving it a celestial colour due to the presence of crystallized sulphur.

Health benefits of Terme di Saturnia thermal water:

Saturnia thermal water is sulphurous, carbonic, sulphate, bicarbonate-alkaline-ferrous and rich in sulphur; it is highly antioxidant and purifying.

Its health-giving properties are countless, with beneficial effects on every system in the body; inhale it to aid the respiratory system; drink it for inner cleanse and detox; bathe in it to gently exfoliate the skin and cure any skin conditions.

Other health benefits include reduced blood pressure, general cardiovascular health as well as a liver detox.

The healing powers of the sulphurous spring water are harnessed in luxurious, regenerative therapies at Terme di Saturnia’s recently refurbished Spa with 53 treatment rooms and state-of-the-art facilities, offering a range of tailored medical, nutritional, destress, detox and fitness programmes. 

Terme di Saturnia Method and Programmes:

Terme di Saturnia Method is an approach to wellness based on 5 key ingredients: specialist medicine including state-of-the-art diagnostics, healthy nutrition, Spa treatments and thermal cures, movement, and energy rebalancing through naturopathy. 

The approach is reflected in the resorts’ comprehensive Wellness Programmes which cover every aspect of wellbeing and include: Classic, Slim, Detox, Mind and Skin anti-age, all coming in 3 and 7-night options, delivered by an in-house team of highly skilled medical and holistic experts.  

Design and Dining

On the threshold of its 101st anniversary in 2020 Terme di Saturnia has undergone a major renovation; the resort has been completely renewed throughout by the London-based design studio THDP, skilfully combining Terme di Saturnia’s heritage with the new innovative look towards the future, inspired by the elements of earth, air, and water as well as Maremma’s glorious countryside.

Bright interiors are touched with the colours of nature and iridescent blues of the Natural Hot Spring. 

An overriding philosophy of seeking harmony with the natural environment is reflected in the design of the 124 guest rooms, and in the eco 18-hole golf course, designed to blend seamlessly into the glorious surrounding countryside. 

Terme di Saturnia’s dining experience is another exquisite feature of the resort; the on-site 1919 Restaurant is Maremma’s oldest water-side restaurant offering SPA Menus and a fine dining experience, and is one of the best in the region; while a traditional Trattoria La Stellata with beautiful view of the Tuscan hills offers classic flavours of typical Tuscan dishes.
