Surrounded by mountains in the Heidiland region, you cannot ask for more! Great Swiss service, amazing room and incredible Spa! Best of the best! The Roman style pool full of massage jets everywhere and special heated blankets are waiting for you when you come out of the pool. Wonderful restaurant too!!

12Set against an imposing Alpine backdrop, the extensive wellness facilities like spas, numerous thermal water pools, saunas and steam rooms, as well as immaculate treatment suites and fitness facilities at Grand Resort Bad Ragaz make it a destination for guests keen to focus on health, wellbeing and relaxation.


Bad Ragaz is also the first hotel in the world to house a boutique from Swiss luxury skincare range La Prairie. Guests of the resort have free access to the Tamina Therme: a 7,300sq metre, cathedral-like indoor-outdoor wellness complex with countless thermal pools, steam rooms, hot tubs, icy plunge pools and saunas. You could very easily spend an entire day here wandering from pool to pool, following one of the four tailored wellbeing-boosting therapeutic bathing programmes.

11The local area’s healing thermal waters have been attracting health-conscious visitors since the 16th century, and with good reason – Tamina gorge near Bad Ragaz is the most abundant thermal source in Europe. Naturally flowing at 36.5°C, the waters are renowned for their balanced mineral content and healing benefits.


Rooms in the original resort are traditional in style – perhaps overly. It’s the modern Spa Suites that are the real draw for those wishing to focus on relaxation in particular. Sleek and contemporary, the suites are decorated in chic, muted tones of pale biscuit, taupe and café au lait with soft fabrics and adjustable AirTouch beds. Flooded with natural light, all the spa suites have floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies, plus individual saunas and steam baths – when it comes to upscale relaxation, Bad Ragaz impresses. The resort’s 440square metre penthouse suite is an impressive private retreat, with a dedicated personal butler and expansive views over snow-capped mountains from its outdoor Jacuzzi and wraparound terrace.
