Only natural products are used at the wellness centre: mud combined with the house mineral water, honey, milk and wine; the ancient cosmetics made by Profumo Santa Maria Novella in Florence are also organic.
Two suggestive swimming pools are open throughout the day: the main pool is heated to 32° C and is open to children of all ages, whereas the other, with a water temperature of 34°C and various whirlpools, is reserved for adults. The mineral salts pool is only for adults (over 14). The two pools are open all day from 8 am to 8pm. Guests can choose from various types of whirlpools in both pools, such as whirlpool spa beds or chairs, lymphatic drainage, sheet or waterfall jets. The water ranges from 32° and 34° C, depending on the bath. Below an enormous replica of the ‘Fountain of Youth’ painting there is the mineral salt bath with its innovative ‘Magnapool’ system. This system uses a blend of magnesium and chloride minerals that are absorbed though the skin at a cellular level, detoxifying the organism and thereby reducing stress, anxiety, aches and pains. The water is odourless, leaves no residues on the skin nor discolours hair; it is also extremely gentle and therapeutic on sensitive skins. The system is so environment-friendly that the circuit backwash can be used for irrigation.
Having a massage is one of the easiest ways of getting, or keeping healthy. On account of the extraordinary effects of massages, our spa offers a variety of massage techniques carried out by qualified staff in our massage cabins. Anxiety and stress vanish under expert masseur hands. A good massage improves blood circulation, relaxes muscles, aids digestion and stimulates the lymphatic system, thereby eliminating toxins. These benefits, combined with the pleasant feeling of being pampered rapidly create a magic and marvellous sensation of wellbeing.
Only using products from Officina Profumo Farmaceutica Santa Maria Novella we have created a large range of treatments: relaxation face cleansing, special face cleansing, male face cleansing, anti-age massage, manicure and pedicure, waxing, scalp massate and mask, shampoo and set.
Since time immemorial, wrapping the entire body, or part of it, in a substance containing special properties has been a popular wellness technique. After this treatment, the guest then floats on a thermo-spa bed, (but not in direct contact with the water) thereby experiencing a sensation of fullness similar to the one we once felt in our mother’s womb - like being suspended in a warm, timeless atmosphere. The body wrap can be a single treatment or combined with a massage to boost its beneficial effects. These are the fruit of a long process of preparation of mud with various properties and different colours in contact with our Sant'Orso mineral water, which originates at a depth of 450 metres close to the Bellevue.
