Time to let go at Hotel Saratz
The Sarazenen Spa is a new interpretation of the hamam and the renaissance of the classic bathing scene. It combines a sociable atmosphere with wellbeing, revitalization and good health.
The main attraction after the actual Sarazenen Spa in the old vaulted cellar is the rhassoul, a bath modelled on the Orient. Here the body is massaged with three different kinds of healing mud – an over 1000-year-old Oriental nurturing ritual in which the skin is stimulated by a steam bath and then purified with healing mud.
A quiet room, flooded with natural light from panoramic windows, affords views of the 35,000 m2 hotel park and the Roseg Glacier. An additional exit to the hotel park has been created for fans of fresh air. And for all who prefer to remain inside, the Sarazenen Spa offers numerous lifestyle showers and an ice fountain, which is certainly more than refreshing.
The Oriental touch at the Sarazenen Spa is superbly suited to the Hotel Saratz: a glance into the past reveals the Saratz family’s connection to the Orient. Their roots go back to the Saracens, an Arab people who came from North Africa around 900 BC, travelling via Spain over the Alps. An old bridge in today’s Pontresina was built by the Saracens and was called Pontem Sarasinam, which over the centuries has developed into today’s Romansh name of Puntraschigna, or Pontresina. Today, the Saratz family are regarded as the founders of the Engadin holiday resort.
