Fresh thermal water bubbling straight from below the grounds of Vail offers guests purest relaxation with valuable minerals in 35 to 41 degree warm water. Here you have the choice of a thermal bathing world or Irish-Roman spa ritual – both of which invite you to sink into a world of wellness inside the unique architecture and matchless building structure of a very special place to bathe. Vail's Roman-Irish spa ritual is unique and the only one of its kind in United States. It combines ancient bathing cultures into a unique cleansing ritual.

The best of ancient spa culture combined with a unique cleansing ritual in historic surroundings: an exclusive experience in a very special atmosphere. At 8 different stations, your body is warmed, cleansed, relaxed, then cooled down again – a source of soothing relaxation, health and vitality.

As crazy as this sounds it IS POSSIBLE for Vail Athletic to harness geothermal energy and mineral water for this section of the spa. More to come, but a 2023 drill found geothermal potential in town.

OuVision & next steps

The Spa part of Vail Athletic is still a bit of a dream. More to come, but we do believe that it could be a most welcome and beautiful win for our residents and, of course, our guests. Oh, like the Hürlimannbad & Spa Zürich, Vail Athletic will offer an annual membership for the spa pool & Infinity rooftop pool.

And even if it is your first time in Vail, carving out some time to rest and relax is unlikely to be something you’ll regret.

Thank you! We can't wait to hear from you. And hope you might even be interested in helping us shape the future of water, recovery, and relaxation in Vail.
