The Experience


Terme Manzi Hotel

Our hands use water to give life. Gurgitello Springs – From myth to scientific literature, the famed waters of the Gurgitiello Springs.

The thermal waters have ancient origins.  We find them cited from the Greek Strabone to the Roman scholar Pliny the “Old”.  The Greeks, who were the first to colonize the island calling it “Pithaecusa,” used the mineral springs to cure their illnesses.  However it was the Romans who had great passion for the thermal waters and put them under the protection of Apollo, recognized as the God of health and healing, and built upon them luxurious spas which would soon become resorts for fun, leisure and wellness.  

The Terme Manzi Spa was built around the famous water source called “Gurgitiello” springs, named by the Romans who were inspired by the hot stream, gurges in latin, that flowed freely in the open to an area of the island which is now called Piazza Bagni. The Romans were soon able to highlight the enormous healing powers of this water, which they experienced themselves over time, thus creating an important tool for healing and wellness.

We are born from water and water sustains our life.  Up to 60% of our body weight is water therefore it draws incredible benefits from hyper thermal waters and mud.  They are very effective in the treatment of many diseases, as documented by medical and clinical studies.

The multiple healing properties of hyper thermal water originate with clear deep sea water that is forced through infinite volcanic fissures by pressure. The water passes through areas of extreme heat which contain a great variety of minerals and salts. During this process the water is purified and can absorb the healing minerals and salts. This is why the water reaches the surface at temperatures close to 100 degrees Celsius, and with a salty composition rich in bicarbonates, alkaline sulphates, and sodium and calcium phosphates. It is the combination of high temperatures and salty composition that create the enormous healing power in the thermal mineral water of the Manzi Spa.

An unforgettable holiday – THE ISLAND OF ISCHIA

The largest of the islands in the Gulf of Naples with history and culture, nature and sea, spas and exclusive events. There are not many places like this in the world because many places lack cultural stimulus and nightlife. Ischia has all of this, many possibilities to live each day differently on a single island. The coastline promises both sunny days at the beach and worldly nights. Ischia, Sant’Angelo, Forio, Casamicciola and Lacco Ameno all arise overlooking the sea with their historical centers enlivened by shopping, restaurants and disco bars and are most vibrant when evening falls. They are also places of relaxation and wellness with great beaches, blue sea and thermal parks.

The innermost areas of the island where the towns of Barano and Serrara Fontana are perched, preserve a unique natural heritage in a world of rural villages, country roads, and trails through forests of oak and chestnut trees, where a thousand paths will lead you to the green heart of the island amidst ancient cellars, rustic flavours and farming life.
