Drink & Food Library: a Spring Oasis in Saturnia

Surrounded by beautiful Tuscan countryside and a stone’s throw from the village of Saturnia, Terme di Saturnia Hotel and Golf Resort rises majestically with its splendid Lounge Bar. Explore this unique retreat inspired by nature and take a deep breath of fresh air.

​​​​Terme di Saturnia Hotel and Golf Resort is a peaceful haven of wellness and spirituality located in the flourishing Maremma, between Mount Amiata and the Tyrrhenian sea. Medieval legend has it that, in this very location, Jupiter’s thunderbolt fell in a battle against Saturn, giving rise to the famous healing thermal springs. 

Rebranded as a “Natural Destination”, Terme di Saturnia Resort has been redesigned with holistic wellbeing in mind: the thermal water regenerates the body and mind while the Maremma countryside extends as far the eye can see, lulling guests with the delicate sounds of nature.

One of the most distinctive areas of the resort is the Drink & Food Library: a place where all five senses are indulged. The space revolves around the theme of water and its multifaceted reflections and fluidity: stepping into the restaurant is a breath of fresh air due to the conscious choice of colors and the use of natural patterns.

The main character is, once again, water: a sort of invisible guest which is not physically present but permeates the visitor’s perception. One can feel its presence in the use of turquoise, petrol and cobalt fabrics and upholstery, designed and handcrafted by local artisans to evoke a feeling of natural wellbeing.

The inspiration for the interior draws from a local natural phenomenon: the sulphur-infused earth and water have a transformative effect on the light and the temperature. In the same way the interior's visual and emotional language, masterfully designed by THDP Interior Designis characterized by reflections, corrosions, layering and ripples. Magic hides in the details, in the raw finish of coffee tables and décor that simulate the corrosive action of the sulfurous spring waters and in the pure light installations that recreate reflections of water on the walls.

The lounge areas have been refurbished with an eye to preserving the land and local materials, such as travertine: from the fireplace at the entrance, to the bar library with its Tuscan glazed terracotta tiles, to the indoor/outdoor lounge furniture which emphasize the continuity between nature and architecture.

The inviting patio atmosphere completes the experience, making one feel genuinely immersed in nature, flooded with natural light coming through the large windows: here guests can enjoy a quick meal, have an aperitivo or stop for a delicious drink made with local ingredients by the in-house mixologist.

Terme di Saturnia is located in the enchanting Maremma, which offers some unique Tuscan wonders that are worth a visit: small villages, like Saturnia, are a treasure trove of art and culture, playing the role of jealous custodians of centuries-old Tuscan traditions and cultural facetsThe Maremma is also well known for its numerous protected areas, such as the Natural Park of Maremma, where visitors can discover varieties of flora and fauna, and enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the region.
