Can non-residents use the spa?
Non-residents are very welcome. We charge CHF 59 for one-day admission to the Tau Spa and gym. If you book a treatment (massage or beautician), you can use all our Tau Spa facilities the whole day for an additional fee of CHF 20. This includes the use of a bathrobe and bath towels which we will lend you for the duration of your time with us. Water, tea and fresh fruit are provided in the spa area for your use. Since a Turkish bath/hamam treatment automatically involves using the Tau Spa, we charge an additional CHF 20 if you book this option.
Are children allowed in the spa?
Children over the age of 8 Years can use the swimming pool if accompanied by an adult. For Children under the age of 8 Years the indoor- pool is reserved from 02:00 p.m. – 04:30 p.m. (Certain treatments are also available for children). Kindly note that the Spa (Suana and Hamam) is available from 16 Years old onwords.
Clothing, yes or no?
Our guests wear swimsuits in the pool area. The sauna is a “nude area.” Hamam users wear the traditional pestemal (loin cloth) which we provide. Your private parts are protected from view during treatments using special cover-up techniques.
How much time should I allow for a spa visit?
Hamam and sauna are best enjoyed at your leisure with no time constraints. You should allow two hours at least, ideally three.
Can I buy a gift voucher for a spa visit?
We sell gift vouchers for a Tau Spa session – a wonderful gift for the people in your life who deserve some relaxation and pampering.
