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.

RAKxa lands in Europe

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.

RAKxa Good Night Sleep90 minutes (€270, US$286, £236) or 120 minutes (€350, US$371, £305): a full-body massage and scalp massage accompanied by energy-balancing singing bowls and RAKxa Deep Sleep essential oil blend.

Pressure and acupressure are also applied along the principal meridian lines.

Seven Chakra Hot Stone Massage60 minutes (€190, US$201, £166) or 90 minutes (€270, US$286, £236): this treatment combines a hot stone massage with energy healing using crystals as well as a facial massage using rose quartz crystals.
