In the splendid setting of the stunning Tuscan countryside, in Chianti, Castel Monastero is your personal Tuscan Retreat. Its SPA has been designed to get away from everyday life and is the ideal place to regain your equilibrium and rediscover your inner balance.
Castel Monastero, once a medieval village and monastery, has been beautifully restored to become a true Tuscan retreat. Surrounded by the stunning Tuscan countryside and Chianti vineyards, all its spaces and its rooms exude a feeling of simple refinement and pure elegance with its contemporary rustic chic style.
The SPA at Castel Monastero is the ideal place to unwind and regain your equilibrium. Exclusively for our guests are the wellness programs by Dr. Mosaraf Ali, director of the Integrated Medical Centre of London and international expert in Integrated Medicine. Guests may choose between detox, weight-loss and energising programmes, which are based on four principles: a healthy diet, physical exercise, massages and relaxation.
Integrated medicine has a holistic vision of the individual, who is considered in his or her entirety and in relation to the physical and social environment in which he or she lives. Castel Monastero’s team of doctors, trained by Dr. Ali, create personalised programmes for every guest. Starting with the state of the person’s health, the doctors prescribe a diet, massages, special herbal teas (grown in the castle’s herbarium), as well as yoga lessons to teach them correct breathing techniques and the ability to achieve relaxation. The menus for the nutritional programs have been created together with Gordon Ramsay, combining the creativity with the principles of low fat and sugar content.
Guests may choose from a series of programs and treatments, complemented by innovative and exclusive product lines. The SPA experience is enhanced by the indoor water area which features a Finnish sauna, hammam, emotional showers and two indoor pools, of which one features water with a high saline concentration that has draining, revitalizing and muscle relaxant properties.
