The crystal lakes and majestic peaks of the Swiss Alps inspired the 2009 renovation of the Palace Wellness Spa at Badrutts Palace Hotel. Local artisans helped craft spaces from cembran pine and San Bernadino silver into an eco-friendly space with ten treatment rooms, including a hair spa, pedicure area, solarium, body treatment wing and private spa suites, as well as saunas, steam baths, and an indoor and outdoor heated pool. In addition to Anika Organic Luxury, Intraceuticals, Shodeea and La Biosthetique products, the spa also uses organic botanicals in treatments focused on mind-body balance. Many treatments draw inspiration from Ayurvedic, Thai massage and shiatsu traditions.
