A large new Wellness Centre for the Helvetia & Bristol in Florence

Thursday, 26 May 2022 13:49

Florence’s Helvetia & Bristol has opened the largest wellness centre in the centre of the Tuscan city. Open to both hotel guests and the general public, the spa is located where the Roman Florentia Roman baths once stood. The environment is suffused and dreamlike with Travertine surfaces, essential furnishings and areas for conviviality and relaxing.

La Spa has a wet area that opens onto the calidarium, and continues with the aquamotus Vichy shower, the sudatorium Finnish sauna, the frigidarium and finally the tepidarium salt room. Then there is the lacus quietis, the area with swimming pools with different depths and various water features. Here the artist Felice Limosani has created a suspended piece of video art to be experienced immersed in the warm water: digital landscapes that through animations are reflected on mirrors and walls, creating a sensory experience for the body and mind. From the wet area, a path leads on one side to the gym, and on the other to the first floor with the treatment cabins, including a suite.  La Spa is managed by Snow Group Italia, part of the French group that owns over 60 wellness centres around the world.

“The new spa has a fascinating history, just like the hotel” 

"Helvetia & Bristol is a real icon,” says Elisabetta Fabri, president and CEO of Starhotels. “After a careful restoration and the recent addition of 25 new rooms and suites designed by Anouska Hempel, La Spa is now a destination within a destination and an exclusive experience. During the works we discovered that the ancient Capitoline thermal baths of Roman Florentia once stood here and this inspired us to create a spa that is unique in Florence. It is not just beautiful, it also has a fascinating history, as does the hotel.”
