Tucked away amidst the healing herb gardens and flower meadows of Borgo Santo Pietro’s country estate near Siena you can now find one of the most heavenly and exclusive private spas in Italy.
The spa has been constructed from natural local stone and features elements of water, light, fire and earth. The interior includes an inviting lounge with two grand fireplaces, opulent chandeliers, flickering candles, oversized sofas, vaulted ceilings, arched windows and an abundance of fresh flowers collected daily from the spa gardens.
With two individual treatment rooms and two additional al-fresco garden therapy rooms the spa’s terrace features stone fountains and views over the Tuscan herb gardens. The sun gently rises over the bulb garden and then slowly sets over the herb gardens, beautifully highlighting the statue of Buddha and the cascading fountains.
Spa Manager Tracey Mallallieu explains about the spa’s philosophy… “The spa has been designed to offer an unforgettable experience to guests. We now have the space to offer more treatments and have introduced more holistic therapies such as the Ayurvedic Shirodhara treatment, which involves gently pouring warm liquids over the forehead or ‘third eye.
A deeply meditative treatment, it has a balancing and calming effect. We also offer new organic therapies featuring the ‘heaven’ collection of luxury skincare products such as the ‘bee slim’ ritual and ‘bee sting’ facial. We are the only spa in Italy to offer this range of exclusive natural skincare products and the new treatments are proving very popular at Borgo. ”
A wellbeing center for therapeutic healing the building is located on an ancient healing site originally used centuries ago by the Franciscan Monks. Using fresh herbs and raw ingredients from the gardens, the holistic therapies offered include Ayurvedic massage, bespoke facials, relaxing bodywork and classic beauty treatments.
The atmosphere at Borgo Santo Pietro’s boutique spa is utterly intoxicating, a heady mixture of scents, sounds and sensations all thoughtfully designed to restore the balance, refresh the energy and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. Set to be one of the best private spas in Italy.
