Resorts Spas

There are hot springs with therapeutic and relaxing properties in 19 cities in 6 of Santa Catarina’s tourist regions. The Complexo Hidromineral de Gravatal (Gravatal Hydromineral Complex), in Encantos do Sul, is considered the second best in the world (after Aux-Les Thermes, in France). Whereas the Complexo Caldas da Imperatriz, in Florianópolis, is known for being the first thermal spa in Brazil. In the charming town of Treze Tílias, in the Contestado Valley, the trick is to enjoy the thermal waters in winter, since temperatures in the city can drop to -10° C. In the Great West, Quilombo (Chapecó’s neighboring town) stands out because of its hot springs park located right in the town square. And in São João do Sul (neighboring town of Praia Grande, in the Caminho dos Cânions region), is the only salt-water resort spa in the country.

Take advantage of the power of the hot springs and comfortable structure of the spas, complexes and hydrothermal hotels.

The therapeutic properties credited to the hot springs range from combatting stress and chronic diseases to rejuvenation. Santa Catarina’s main thermal complexes are more than immersion baths, offering supplementary alternative therapies, infrastructure for recreation and sports, saunas, convenience stores and other visitor services.

Seniors cannot miss the opportunity to also explore Balneário Camboriú.

Spas are very popular tourist places for seniors. But the destination in Santa Catarina that is preferred by this group is Balneário Camboriú. Almost entirely horizontal, the city has good hotel chains and a complete urban infrastructure, right on the beach, with numerous options for recreation and services, cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlors, plus a great beach with calm waters that amazes older tourists. Visiting all these attractions on foot is easy and very enjoyable. Furthermore, Balneário Camboriú is surrounded by other interesting municipalities, such as Itajaí, Porto Belo, Bombinhas, Blumenau and Brusque, and it is also close to the capital, Florianópolis. This means that after relaxing in one of Santa Catarina’s thermal spas, you can go out and enjoy yourself in Balneário Camboriú.
