The activity of the hotel is strictly connected with the services of the Beauty Farm and Spa Rosapepe, equipped with whirlpools, saunas, gym and treatment area.
Spas in Italy: precious waters and muds
The thermal water of Contursi is particularly rich in minerals in solution and suspension, and has been exploited for its effectiveness since the 1700s. It is the richest water in carbon dioxide in the whole of Europe, which makes it particularly suitable for the treatment of vascular conditions. The mud used at the thermal establishment naturally surfaces together with water, flowing into special tanks. The sediment material is used directly in the spa for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes.
The mud has a characteristic white color, while the water flows from the main source and is used directly for inhalation and thermal treatments at a temperature of 42 °. At the spa you can take medical visits, baths and mud baths, massages and numerous therapeutic routes. A wide range of treatments for your well-being, all to be discovered!
