Therme Vals-Birthday Weekend-

John, my husband, surprised me with an amazing birthday weekend in one of the most exclusive spas.
The Therme Vals, located in Switzerland, 1200m above sea level dug deep into a mountain,  is a masterpiece which has been declared a historic monument. 
Designed by architect Peter Zumthor, Therme Vals is a stunning landmark built from 60,000 stone slabs of Valser quartzite in different shades of grey. The combinations of light and shade, open and enclosed spaces and linear elements make for a highly sensuous and restorative experience. 
Valser spring water fills six pools: 
A pool floating with rosehip petals, a fire pool (42˙C), an ice pool (14˙C), an indoor pool (32˙C), a panoramic outdoor pool and a pool that echoes with monastic chants!
Below the pool deck is a wellness centre where you can have treatments focusing on relaxation and pampering.
