Set your body straight at this serious spa for those who want results. The Palace Merano has gained the reputation for being the best place to go to for anti-aging and a full detox – and it’s not without reason having won many awards for their success! The Biontology system was devised by Henri Chenot, a French biologist that founded his unique system based on Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Taking into account ageing or tiredness, pollution of your body is not only a case of bad diet or the intake of excessive toxins; it is about the lack of equilibrium between the physical body, the mind and the unconscious being. With world-class facilities and intensive programmes, Espace Henri Chenot is all about improving the body and mind with overall wellbeing. The expert team have a personalised approach and will assess your body’s state to establish a treatment plan for your stay that may include massages, hydrotherapy, chiropractor, nutritionists, elaborate blood oxygenating procedures, supplement, vitamins and minerals. The beauty treatment centre offers a variety of treatments should you be in need of hyaluronic, Botox and other skin rejuvenation treatments.
Free time offers the opportunity to explore the historic surroundings or join the cookery workshops, themed meetings and exercise programmes. Food lovers can look forward to a menu designed to induce deep tissue cleansing, based on natural, vegetable-based, hypoallergenic foods that re-balance the body's functions. There is a second menu with smaller "wellbeing portions" called Biolight. This offers healthy and light food prepared using methods that preserve their nutritional properties. The excellent tea bar serves herbal tea, fresh juice and other healthy drinks. With 100 rooms, of which 29 are luxurious suites with spectacular views, the Palace Merano will ensure you are more than comfortable during your stay.
