Palace Merano Espace Henri Chenot, as the name implies, is very much a ‘palace' with grand spaces and décor to match. Set in picturesque grounds and surrounded by stunning mountain views, the luxury hotel and spa has great warmth and guests make themselves at home here. With spectacular scenery and pleasant climate, the location is an ideal destination for a relaxing wellness break.
Situated in northern Italy’s South Tyrol region, the elegant town of Merano, renowned for its spas and art nouveau architecture, attracts health-conscious visitors. The ‘Chenot Method’ is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the principles of biontology, encouraging a balanced lifestyle and good nutritional habits. Henri Chenot, who developed the famous Chenot Method as a result of his forty years of experience of beauty and wellbeing, still lives at the property.
TREATMENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Most guests book a 7-day detox for their first visit to this exclusive luxury resort, although, after initial consultation, your doctor may recommend something different. In Henri Chenot wellness centres, where programmes are focused on individual needs, you can enjoy treatments aimed at slimming, rest, and recovery.
The action is divided between a spa wing on the lower ground floor and a medical wing near the top of the building with over 70 treatment rooms in total.
When not having treatments, guests have the run of a large and pretty garden with outdoor and indoor pools and a gym, which boasts high-tech equipment such as anti-gravity running machines. This is unsurprising, given then number of recuperating football players amongst their clientele.
This is an extremely impressive facility with sophisticated diagnostic tools and an array of specialists including doctors, osteopaths and psychologists.
There is a choice of rooms and suites at Palace Merano - Espace Henri Chenot with views of the town or the mountains. All are decorated in slightly grand, traditional style, are well-appointed and comfortable.
Although there is a minimum 7-night stay for guests undergoing treatment you are also welcome to bring a partner or friend who is not. However, we hear that most become converts pretty quickly.
As with the rest of the hotel, dining areas are formal and opulently decorated. While all food is prescribed according to the programme you are experiencing, a large team of chefs create exquisite dishes to ensure you don't feel you are missing out.
