This extra special spa experience, from the South Tyrolean aresana® brand, uses the combination of dry cold and soft snow to cool you down gently after you’ve spent time in a regular sauna.
Dr Christian Thuile, director of complementary medicine at the Merano hospital in South Tyrol, has developed a method in which short blasts of cold followed by warming-up phases can be best used to increase a person’s well-being. At temperatures approaching -10°C, the snow sauna offers a gentle and pleasant way of cooling down after visiting a traditional sauna.
The approximately 10m² snow room in the Quelle Hotel Nature Spa Resort is perfectly integrated into the overall design of the spa area. A bench made of genuine old spruce wood and a hand-finished tree will inspire you to chill out – literally – in the powdered snow. The white LED lighting finishes the scene off nicely.
