For over a hundred years, since 1912, the Grand Hotel Trieste & Victoria has been the mainstay feature of the legendary health spa hills just west of Venice.
There, hidden beneath the fields, underground springs flow with spa water of an exceptional quality.
The mineral water is warm and perfect for health treatments, with a fine mixture of natural gases.
In time, the seven springs proved to be the Hotel’s therapeutic fortune as it became the destination for Europe’s jet set, who sought out well-being and eternal youth in its discreet rooms and health treatments.
And a palatial establishment it still is today!
The rooms and suites are elegantly appointed, yet also offering the modern amenities a five-star guest would expect.
In the lush gardens are several pools, and a delicious cafe’.
Besides the casual visitor who will delight in the warm spa waters, the Grand Hotel Trieste & Victoria is a serious and professional health retreat, recognized by doctors and often prescribed as treatment.
The hotel itself has medical staff on site, and the health programmes are personalised at an appointment with the doctor, who will evaluate your muscle tone and joint rigidity as well as your health status, skin elasticity and psycho-physical stress.
This is not your regular hotel spa, where a couple of “masseuses” pour oil over you and rub a bit all over – see the extensive list of Medical Wellness options here: http://www.hoteltriestevictoria.com/medical-wellness.html
