The Forte Village Resort, nestled among 47 hectares of beautiful gardens along a white sand beach on the coast of Sardinia, is one of the leading resorts in the world. Specializing in one of a kind, exclusive family experiences, not only is it in a privileged location, offers Michelin-star meals and fun for the whole family, Forte Village Resort also counts with a world class Spa: Acquaforte Thalasso&SPA.
Acquaforte is a well-rounded facility that offers everything from sports medicine to beauty treatments. It is in fact here, at Acquaforte Thalasso&SPA that the medical team led by Angelo Cerina revolutionized the world of thalassotherapy, creating a completely original and effective method of detoxing, rejuvenating and improving the body.
The history of this world-renowned Spa dates back years, maybe even millennia.
Millennia because it was, in fact, here that the Ancient Romans could be seen in the splendid town of Nora, just a few minutes from Forte Village Resort, benefiting from the powers of the sea in the thermal baths.
In 2016, Forte Village Resort reopened after undergoing a complete renovation, including the Acquaforte Thalasso&SPA, which has allowed them to welcome guests 10 months out of the year as opposed to the previous 5 months.
From the Spa’s spacious, open-plan reception area guests can access the male and female changing rooms, each one with its own sauna and access to a 47sqm communal Turkish bath lined with mosaic tiles and bench seating. Robe-clad and
ready to explore, they can head off along a pathway that meanders into the gardens, leading to the thalasso circuit and Kneipp path, or follow a second, stone clad tunnel towards the 310sqm fully equipped gym, the Performance Center, a
54m outdoor saltwater swimming pool and the Ayurvedic treatment area and garden.
What they offer
Acquaforte’s thalassotherapy is based on the revolutionary principle of the power that salt water has at different temperatures and different saline densities.
Set in a wonderful garden, the thalassotherapy course consists of six pure Sardinian seawater pools, with water drawn from just over a hundred meters from the shoreline.
The first three pools – at a high temperature and high saline concentration – have an extraordinary detox effect. The final three – with a lower saline concentration and temperatures – finish off the regeneration program, stabilizing the exchanges between the body and the mineral salts.
Thanks to its state-of- the-art technology and constant research, the Forte Lab medical team offers a wide selection of cutting-edge natural beauty treatments for the face and body to maintain a radiant and youthful appearance. It’s here, at the Beauty Center that Acquaforte Thalasso&SPA has trusted Lemi’s and its Aemotio Spa, an advanced multifunction cabin that offers the most modern treatment techniques, to give them unparalleled results. Fitted with a heated water mattress to ensure ultimate comfort, this Spa bed offers color and aromatherapy, steam baths, Vichy shower and water-enhanced vibromassage.
