Five-star Tuscan retreat Castelfalfi has celebrated the relaunch of its spa with a partnership with integrative wellness and medical retreat RAKxa based in Bangkok, Thailand.

Following extensive multi-million-dollar renovations across the Italian golf resort, the Castelfalfi Spa has undergone a complete overhaul combining centuries-old traditions with contemporary design.

The new spa features warm earthy tones and natural materials throughout. It is home to seven treatment rooms – including a couple’s suite – as well as two saunas, a steamroom, a relaxation area and an indoor/outdoor heated infinity pool with views of the estate’s rolling hills.

Spa treatments on offer are supplied by Espa and Maria Galland Paris.

Thanks to the partnership with RAKxa, the Castelfalfi Spa menu includes three RAKxa-branded wellness treatments and three retreats.

The collaboration marks RAKxa’s first European partnership.

Each ritual draws on the 60-villa resort’s philosophy which blends Traditional Thai Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda and energy healing.
