Lorenzo Giannuzzi, CEO of Sardinia’s lauded destination spa, Forte Village, has launched a medical wellness retreat in Fiuggi, Italy.
Set in an 8-hectare park which is renowned for its healing mineral waters, Palazzo Fiuggi Wellness Medical Retreat fuses holistic traditions, western medicine and nutrition.
Five personalised programmes are offered – Complete Life Rewind, Optimal Weight, Mindful Movement, Deep Detox and Immuno Boost – all of which incorporate Fiuggi’s mineral water and a variety of spa treatments ranging from ayurveda to high-tech touchless therapies.
After a sensitive restoration, the existing 102-room hotel has reopened with a 6,000sq m wellness centre created by architects Mario Dal Molin and Claudia Manunta and equipped by the Gharieni Group.
Guests can access a wellness and spa area, medical spa and beauty clinic, offering 21 multi-functional treatment rooms, eight beauty cabins, one private spa suite and six medical rooms.
Industry figure Thorsten Lipfert is leading the facility during pre-opening, having worked alongside GOCO Hospitality in the early consultation stages.
Professor David Della Morte Canosci, Palazzo Fiuggi’s medical and scientific director, says the resort “sets a new standard internationally for medical wellness retreats,” adding that there are an array of medical wellness and fitness diagnostics and experiences.
In a nod to traditional Roman bathing, the spa is anchored by a 700sq m Roman bathing area alongside two hammams, a sauna, steamroom and an experience shower by Stenal.
Guests can also visit two thalasso pools – supplied by Unbescheiden – incorporating Fiuggi mineral water, a plunge pool and a host of fitness facilities.
Palazzo Fiuggi’s concept is rounded out by a strong focus on nutrition underpinned by a specialist menu using nutrients to activate cellular pathways linked with anti-ageing, anti-inflammation and antioxidant processes.
