Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort



Searching for a romantic European getaway for your honeymoon?
About.com has found the perfect Italian hide-away - Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort...


Built along foothills in southern Tuscany, Terme di Saturnia’s centerpiece is an outdoor sulphuric thermal water pool that bubbles 24 hours a day from a nearby ancient Roman spring. Days can be spent poolside with frequent dips in the 98.6 F healing waters, or at the resort’s spa and Roman baths with a steam room and sauna. At dusk, a stroll along the Tuscan hillside, or around the resort’s newly renovated 18-hole golf course, precede a romantic dinner under a full moon that rises over the hilly countryside.


Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort has 140 guest rooms, including 74 suites and two newer grand suites. Accommodations are located either in the original stone building (reminiscent of a farmhouse) or in more recently constructed sections. Most rooms overlook the thermal waters and foothills, and all come with modern touches such as satellite TVs and Internet hook-ups. Décor is soothing and nature-based with hardwood floors, natural lighting and, of course, fine Italian linens. Suites are more spacious with living rooms, dining space, and marble bathrooms with a separate bath tub and shower.


Because the resort’s sulphuric waters have a soporific effect, the most “activity” you might do is throw on your bathing suit and robe, have breakfast, take a dip in the pool, nap, take another dip, and nap some more. If you do feel the urge to get your heart rate up, you can golf 18 holes at the resort’s new course, or break a sweat taking an aerobic class. Couples can also request massages in a private room with music and candles. Eating is an “activity” in Italy, so feel no guilt taking three hours for dinner served by bowtie-wearing Italian waiters whose descriptions make any dish sound gourmet.
