Hotel in Bormio with Spa: the 10 most beautiful

After the articles on the most beautiful spa hotels in the Dolomites and Merano, this time I will bring you closer to Milan, in Valtellina. Bormio is one of the most famous places in Valtellina and its thermal springs have been known since ancient times (they were even mentioned by Pliny the Elder!). Renowned as a holiday and winter sports resort (especially for the Milanese), Bormio is a beautiful mountain town where you can do various activities in both summer and winter, without forgetting that it is also the home of my favorite Braulio!! If you are a fan too, I suggest you take a guided tour of the underground cellars (you can find all the info on this site). In addition to the Braulio, however, I must admit that I particularly love Bormio for the spas, both the free ones that are located in the woods and, above all, for those of the suggestive Old Baths. There are actually many hotels in Bormio (and surroundings) with spas and here I have collected the 10 that in my opinion deserve the most. 

10 beautiful hotels in Bormio with Spa for a weekend or a holiday

1. QC Terme Hotel Bagni Vecchi

The most famous thermal baths in Bormio are located in Valdidentro, just outside the city, at almost 1500 meters above sea level and are annexed to theBagni Vecchi Hotel. The rooms are built inside theancient medieval fortress with wooden floors, hand-decorated wardrobes and furniture, and those of the gazebo characterized by a typically alpine and very romantic environment. The highlight of the hotel, however, is undoubtedly the spa with the San Martino Sudatory Grotto, a turkish bath in a cave built in 1827. Do not miss the panoramic infinity pool, the Roman, Medieval, Imperial Baths. By far the most impressive hotel in Bormio.
