The Healing Waters of Tamina Gorge

First discovered by Benedictine monks in 1242, people in the mountain town of Bad Ragaz and further afield have harnessed the naturally warm water of the Tamina Gorge for centuries. The first pipeline of clean fresh spring water, directly running from the Tamina Gorge to Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, originated on May 31st, 1840—and 175 years later still provides guests and locals alike with unrivaled access to pure, fresh mountain spring water.

Recognizing how the healing waters of the Tamina Gorge play a crucial role in the everyday functioning of both the resort and the surrounding town of Bad Ragaz, the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is launching Blue Gold, a new spa package. Designed to honor the resort’s unique relationship to the Tamina Gorge, guests can experience a radical new Thermal Water Massage treatment as part of this new package, which has been carefully created by the forward-thinking spa therapists at Bad Ragaz.

New Thermal Water Massage

The Thermal Water Massage treatment begins with massaging and washing of guests’ feet, where they are encouraged to leave behind everyday worries and soothe themselves with the sounds of trickling water, before enjoying a full 50-minute body massage using replenishing, warm herbal oils. Guests are encouraged to use this time to reflect and let their bodies fully rejuvenate.

The Tamina Gorge fresh water can be enjoyed by the resort’s guests in the luxurious surroundings of the 36.5° Wellbeing & Thermal Spa area, as well as the Tamina Therme, an impressive thermal spa which is also open to the public. Guests staying in the resort’s exclusive Spa Suites can even benefit from having thermal water pumped directly through every tap in their bathroom, sauna, and steam room.

Grand Resort Bad Ragaz prides itself on its longstanding connection to the natural phenomena that is the Tamina Gorge and is pleased to mark this by launching both the new Blue Gold package and the 175 Years-175 Rooms-175 Swiss Francs special. Enjoyed by guests and locals alike, the high-quality spring water can be used for drinking and bathing purposes, as well as for relaxation, therapeutic, and health reasons, and as a result this award-winning resort continues to draw in guests from all over the world.
