Relaxation and family time don’t have to be mutually exclusive, sometimes you can have both — especially when family time is spent at the spa. Try our theory for yourself at the all-new family spa, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. Sure, you have to go to Switzerland to find it, but it’s all for the good cause of family bonding.

Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is a 5-star hotel and resort located in the heart of the Swiss Alps nearby Tamina Gorge, known for its thermal spa water and healing influences. Tamina Gorge is famous for its narrow path to healing waters where health-seekers have flocked since its discovery in the year 1240.

Surrounded by natural rugged beauty, the resort is encapsulated in health and wellness opportunities while adding its own luxury twist.

Now with an all-new Family Spa and Children’s Villa, Grand Resort in Bad Ragaz is more family-friendly than ever. Kids stay and play over two floors in their personal villa while parents relax in their own space nearby. Little ones enjoy crafts, painting and games daily, 9 a.m.–5 p.m., with professional babysitting services available for children up to three years old. Kids can play in the kitchen learning to cook and bake or head to the playroom with rubber LEGOs, a comfy reading corner and a mini shop.

As the resort caters to travelers of all ages, guests ages 16 and up enjoy private free time in the resort’s own Helenabath, a 365-degree thermal water pool and a variety of independent activities of their own. Teens play games in their own room with ping-pong, foosball and air hockey; scale up the climbing wall; hang out in the chill room; or dance around in the party room.

Spend time together in the family room and with a slew of family activities or head out and about with swimming lessons, mini golf and bike tours with the kids.

For those who need some active free time as a couple or on their own, head to the resort’s tennis courts and full golf course for some recreation without the kids.

Now, back to the spa. With a few on-site facilities and baths available, the Family Spa stands out as a haven for families with young children. Kids have their own place to play and swim for up to ages 16.
