Niche escape in Italy
Dive into the 4,000sqm Spa Minera and Acqua Minera at the 4-star superior Hotel Plunhof in South Tyrol. The ancient mines around Ridnaun and family history were the starting points for the pioneering spa concept: ancestors of the Volgger family of hoteliers mined for silver in one of the highest mines in Europe at 2,500 metres. Spa Minera and Acqua Minera were created as a homage to this heritage and together are Europe’s only ‘wellness above and below the surface’ spa – a unique experience.
Spa Minera won the coveted award of Global Winner at the World Luxury Spa Awards 2019 for ‘Best Unique Spa Experience’. Immerse yourself in the Acqua Minera water world. Find invigoration in the grotto realm. Turn up the heat in the tunnel sauna, miners’ sauna, steam room, Feuerlöchl infrared cabins and around the fireplace. Relax and unwind. Then get your heart beating faster with the activity programme and find balance on the Yoga and meditation roof terrace. Why not book an exclusive Power of Stone treatment to enhance your Italian escape?
