roman traditions

The Romans built magnificent baths, known as thermae. Some of these baths were enormous, accommodating more than 1500 people at a time. They were a venue for social activities, relaxation and wellbeing – a natural part of day-to-day life. The baths comprised different rooms and pools at different temperatures. There were massage facilities, libraries, lounges, gardens and restaurants. The Romans liked to surround themselves with beauty: marble and mosaics, paintings and statues. This was a place where they could read, study and recover their strength after hard battles. Here they would meet, talk and discuss politics and other current affairs.

As a result of the expansion of the Roman Empire across Europe, many countries have a tradition of spas, thermal baths and bath houses. The Romans’ bathing culture, with its particular form of wellbeing and preventive care, is now rapidly becoming part of our everyday lives. Many spas and bath houses, both large and small, have opened in Europe in recent years.

Personal wellbeing

We live busy, hectic lives and have an increasing need for peace, relaxation and harmony. Everyday stress can be offset by health and personal wellbeing. Today, people strive for a smart, healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

We want to live a happier and healthier life, and seek new ways of taking better care of ourselves.

Sustainable lifestyle 

Sustainability is not just about the environment and natural resources, but personal wellbeing too. We prefer solutions that are simple, pleasant and adapted to us as individuals.

The Well embraces the best elements and traditions of Roman baths, combining them with the modern continental culture of bathing and wellbeing.
