Since 1840, water from the hot springs has flowed through the veins of Palais Bad Ragaz, a palatial and historic retreat that is the centrepiece of Switzerland’s thermal heritage. At the foot of the Eastern Alps, this spa resort is as majestic as the panorama. Marble, granite, vast ceilings, large spaces and huge pools of spring water honour the prestigious array of treatments. Enjoy the benefits of a regenerating cure, relax in one of the many baths, sauna or steam room, or opt for the privacy of your own luxury suite. These princely comforts are crowned by the gourmet offerings at the typical Swiss restaurant Zollstube and at Restaurant Igniv by Andreas Caminada, whose delicate bites are to be shared like so many of the other savoury experiences.
