By Chris Boyle


Discover a world of relaxation, rejuvenation and beauty at these fabulous spas



Aquabasilea waterpark is a unique spa facility spanning more than 140,000 square feet. Aquabasilea boasts a wide range of activities, services and treatments for the elite traveler, partner and family.

The bathing area comprises the Leisure Pool, which is fully equipped with wave machines and waterslides, and the Vitality Pool – the perfect environment in which to re-energize.

Wellness World Sole Uno is part of the Parkresort Rheinfelden and prides itself on offering the best international spa treatments, from Siberia to the orient.

The elite traveler can experience the Nordic contrast of the fire-and- ice pools, the hot and cold pleasures of the tropical rain, or even refreshing alpine waterfalls. The intensive saltwater pool is salted to 12% allowing you to gently float and let any anxieties slip away. To complete your day enjoy the sauna, followed by a divine massage or beauty treatment; truly the best way to achieve total relaxation.

Signature treatment: The Birch Ritual. This begins with a sauna session followed by a traditional birch massage that involves hitting the body lightly with fresh birch branches. Combined with a second sauna session, this treatment is very popular among Basel residents and is excellent for stimulating blood circulation. As the essential oils in the birch are released, guests experience a welcome sense of relaxation.
