Well-being in the water

Salt-water pools – healthy bathing

A mountain holiday at the seaside? The ERMITAGE Wellness & Spa Hotel in Gstaad-Schönried combines both ideals. The environmentally friendly salt-water pool renovated in 2019 offers blissfully warm water with the same level of salt as the ocean.

Salt-water pools both indoors and in the open air, throughout the year. Good for the health, the skin and for letting go. Together with the large sports pool, the well-being of water is a pillar of the integrated spa philosophy.

Salt water is more than just salt water!

The natural salt water used in the ERMITAGE salt-water pool comes from the United Rhine Salt Works in Schweizerhalle, formed millions of years ago in an inland sea, today lying at a depth of 140-400 m. The natural salt water is added to spring water heated to 35°C at the perfect concentration. A completely new water purification process involving filtering and modern salt electrolysis ensures the salt water’s optimum cleansing, which lowers intensity of maintenance and reduces the use of chemicals.
