A carefree sauna vacation at

Enjoy a wonderful break close to home at Thermae Boetfort or Thermae Grimbergen. We give you four reasons for spending your holiday here!

1. Both our wellness centres are green oases

Thermae Boetfort is a wellness centre set in a 400-year-old castle estate. In the castle itself, you will find the restaurant and beauty clinic, where you can enjoy a tension-melting massage and heavenly facial or body treatment. In the stunning buildings and castle garden, there are no fewer than fourteen saunas and a variety of wellness facilities, such as Jacuzzis, relaxation baths, steam baths and more.

Thermae Grimbergen is situated in a manor house with a gorgeous green garden. The reception desk, part of the restaurant and the beauty clinic are situated in the main house, while the various saunas and wellness facilities are spread across several annexes and the garden. Here, you can relax in eleven different saunas, as well as hammams, Jacuzzis and other baths.

2. They are easily accessible from anywhere in Belgium

Thanks to their close proximity to Brussels, Melsbroek and Grimbergen are easily accessible. Added to this, both centres have a large private car park, so you can literally drive right up to their doorstep.

3. You can relax both in the nude and in swimwear

At both centres, sauna fans can enjoy their wellness both in the nude and in swimwear, with the facilities spread across two separate areas. When you visit Thermae Boetfort or Thermae Grimbergen, you are welcome to relax in either area, provided you respect the dress code, of course. Visitors are asked to wear a bathrobe in the restaurant and to and from the beauty clinic.

4. And, as always, focuses on providing a real experience

With over 20 years’ experience, Thermae has put together a wonderful wellness programme with singing bowls, scents and relaxation techniques for you to take part in during your visit to the thermal baths. This programme is changed regularly. At both centres you can also discover a unique salt room during a special halotherapy session. The walls, ceiling and floors of these rooms are covered in different Himalayan salts, with salt dispersed into the rooms as well. All of this improves breathing and is great for the skin too. Definitely worth a try!

How’s that for an instant holiday feeling?

Intimate sauna vacation

Did you know that both Thermae Boetfort and Thermae Grimbergen have two private saunas where you can enjoy your sauna and wellness exclusively with your own party? At Thermae Boetfort, you have the choice of the Zen or Lagoon private sauna. The former is a modern paradise and the latter, an exotic sanctuary. Both are equipped with a Finnish sauna, an infrared sauna/corner, a Jacuzzi, a swimming pool and a steam bath. There are also sanitary facilities provided in these units, as well as relaxation loungers. And, you can even order a snack and/or drink while you are there, which will be delivered to you from the on-site restaurant.

At Thermae Grimbergen, you can relax in the Cleopatra or Yasmine private sauna. Both saunas are beautifully decorated with murals and offer a unique combination sauna (a Finnish sauna with infrared rays), a Jacuzzi and a steam bath. Again, with the added option of enjoying a snack and/or drink delivered to you from the on-site restaurant.

All-in sauna vacation

If the thought of having to drive home after a day of relaxation doesn’t appeal to you, just stay at the on-site hotel. Both centres offer different room types and serve a generous breakfast. The perfect location for a wellness mini-break!

And let’s not forget the wide range of massages and facial and body treatments you can indulge in at the beauty clinic. How about a hot stone massage? Or a Chinese massage which focuses on pressure points? And even if you prefer to keep it simple, a regular 25-minute back, shoulder and neck massage or an 80-minute full-body massage is just as divine!

When it comes to facial treatments, you really are spoilt for choice here: from the professional beauty clinic treatments with, among other things, anti-ageing treatments to a short, 25-minute hydrating facial treatment. And, there are lots of body treatments to choose from: from a simple body peeling to an extensive 100-minute argan oil treatment. Explore all the options at!
