The Monteverdi Tuscany, a Medieval-era boutique hotel spread across 22 acres of the Val d’Orcia UNESCO World Heritage Site, has unveiled a new wellness facility following a multi-year renovation. Roman designer Ilaria Miani spearheaded the design of the Monteverdi Spa & Wellness Center, crafting a new benchmark for epicurean wellness in the region.
“We believe a spa has to provide the most up-to-date technologies and treatments to enhance wellness, internal balance, and wellbeing. These, however, need to be cleverly concealed from plain view in order not to contrast the harmony between nature, history, art and landscape, as we tried create for Monteverdi,” Miani says. “I believe Monteverdi offers its guests an extraordinary opportunity to fully dive into a natural and historic landscape.”
Spread across two levels, the facility employs a minimalist materiality that accentuates the surrounding landscapes and history of the property. A natural color palette complements wood and iron elements, instilling an organic bond between the indoors and outdoors as well.
At the spa, warm and cold plunge pools are installed along with bio and Finnish saunas, while a newly constructed conservatory serves as an idyllic relaxation space overlooking views of the Italian countryside. Developed with aesthetic, regenerative, preventative, and programmatic wellness in mind, the 1,720-square-foot Wellness Center comprises an IV lounge and five treatment rooms, including two designated for laser treatments.
