Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort

Blissful Escape in Tuscany

by Bonnie Carroll

Terme di Saturnia Spa & Resort

This Tuscan icon probably has the world's most exotic facial treatments, using diamonds, gold and Antarctic ice as ingredients. Additional menu items include Craniosacral Attuning, Micronized Nasal Showers, Physio-therapeutic treatments, specialist assessments and thermal treatments. It all sounds very technical, but the final outcome is pure bliss.

Spa Entrace

Aromatic Oil Massage with Mud

A special technique, that following an initial personal evaluation, combines a skilled massage with aromatic oils and a special fango application, for a proper Remise en Forme session with relaxing, detoxifying and highly moisturizing effects.

The spa sits beside an ancient thermal spring said to have healing powers, and is also awash in waterfalls, pools and impressive Roman baths. There are two restaurants, an 18-hole golf course and 53 treatment rooms.

Saturnia Amber Massage

Precious and fascinating, the fossil resin amber is as ancient as Time itself. With countless different uses over the centuries, including as a sacred incense and an amulet, amber has now become the highlight of Terme di Saturnia spa. This valued object has detoxifying and draining properties to assist the body’s well-being. Performed with balls of Baltic amber, Saturnia Amber Massage combines the benefits of the precious Baltic resin with the art of massage for an extremely enveloped effect. The amber balls stimulate the circulation and reduce physical and emotional stress providing a “remise en forme” effect and total well-being.

Food & Beverage

Terme di Saturnia features a one star Michelin Restaurant All'Acquacotta, The Spring Bar, Aqualuce and serves fresh herbs and vegetables from their beautiful Terme Kitchen Garden.

All'Aquacotta Restaurant

Awarded one Michelin star 2016, All'Acquacotta's Chef Alessandro Bocci takes Tuscan cuisine on a journey of well-being. Seasonal menus highlight local seafood, meat and pasta dishes. Enjoy signatures like scorpion fish ravioli, fillet of black cod and Fiorentina steak.

Alessandro Bocci was born on the 15th of May 1974 in a typical village in the Tuscan-Lazio part of Maremma. His great passion for cooking and a strong connection with the flavours of Maremman tradition encouraged Alessandro to dedicate himself to this profession from an early age. In fact he studied at Viterbo’s Hotel Management school and graduated in May 1990. A brilliant and creative student, only a month after his diploma, Alessandro was chosen by Terme di Saturnia to join the staff of Chef Giuliano Tonini as commis chef. This marked the start of the twenty-year association between Alessandro Bocci and Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort, during which Alessandro drew on his experiences with great chefs, such as his recent work with the Cerea chefs from the Da Vittorio ***Michelin restaurant. 


Morellino di Scansano

With the well-being of its guests in mind, Terme di Saturnia bases its award-winning cuisine on typical regional produce, often of organic or biodynamic origin. These include wine, IGP extra-virgin Tuscan olive oil, DOP Tuscan pecorino, honey, Maremman saffron and Sorano beans. The variety of fruit and vegetables that the Maremma offers include Orbetello Botargo (a method of preserving mullet), the sfratto dei Goym of Pitigliano and Sorano (a biscuit of Jewish origin), the Maremmana breed of cattle and Tuscan Sea Palamita (Atlantic Bonito). Direct contact with nature, customs and traditions are the source of Maremma’s finest gourmet products. The highlights are its six DOC wines, from the famous Morellino di Scansano to the Bianco di Pitigliano, from the Parrina of Sovana, the Ansonica Costa dell’Argentario of Capalbio. Morellino di Scansano, the quintessential wine of the Maremma, is now the Tuscan wine of choice in the chicest enoteche (wine bars) of Rome.
