Our mission statement
When developing, creating and operating our AQUA-SPA-RESORTS spa facilities, our focus is on three main factors:
the human element – the water – the location
- We create oases of well-being, where people can meet, enjoy, relax and let time slip away.
- Water has healing powers. We use those powers in our spa facilities and they are the basis for our beneficial spa rituals and treatments.
- Each of our spa facilities blends harmoniously with its surroundings. Exceptional architecture has created a collection of unique locations.
Today we operate six spa facilities throughout Switzerland. Each facility is unique and is managed independently. The building and our services are individually tailored to the location and clientele.
Our central tenets are professionalism, efficiency, and valuing and respecting our guests and employees. Every single day and in every stage of our work, we also ensure that we use natural resources sparingly.
History of Aqua-Spa-Resorts AG
AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG has been developing and creating spa resorts in Switzerland since 2005. Today we operate six outstanding spa facilities in Switzerland, offering unique bathing and spa rituals in stunning architectural surroundings.
Termali Salini & Spa Locarno, the sixth facility, opened on 5 July, creating jobs for 50 employees.
The Mineralbad & Spa Rigi Kaltbad, designed by Mario Botta, opened its doors. The water in the spa is heated carbon-neutrally, using wood from Mount Rigi.
AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG had opened a new facility every year since its foundation. This year, instead, it focused on expanding the back office in order to enable employees at the facilities to devote 100% of their energy to their guests.
On 18 December, the Thermalbad & Spa Zurich opened on the former site of the Hürlimann brewery. Its charms include unique architecture and a rooftop pool with spectacular views of the city.
The Mineralbad & Spa Samedan opened in the historic heart of the conservation village of Samedan. The facility, built by architects Miller + Maranta, directly adjoins the historic church and was one of the first vertical bathing complexes.
In summer, the Solbad Schönbühl underwent major reconstruction and reopened as the Solbad & Spa Schönbühl. PSP Swiss Property AG acted as partner and investor for AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG.
On 31 January, AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG submitted an application to build a hammam in Bern. Following six months’ building work, the Hammam & Spa Oktogon Bern – the world’s first vertical hammam – opened in December.
Credit Suisse Investment Foundation became finance partner for the planned facilities. AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG took over Solbad Schönbühl$
AQUA-SPA-RESORTS AG was founded in November in Bern.
