Clean, crisp and 3 hot spring pools to pick from. It's like an oasis in a rather dreary little town. I stayed in Room 10, on a far corner of the first floor. Was a bit of a chore getting the luggage up the stairs from the back staircase. Once Inside the gates,you enjoy a beautiful waterfall, wonderful gardens, lemon... More

Thank you Karl & Ursula Furrer for great time we had in your resort, from checking in our clean well equipped two-room apartment to farewell moments. Special thanks for morning hikes and personal attention! Raisa and Gregory

I have stayed several times with Ursula and Karl at the Swiss Health Resort, and will definitely return as often as I can. The simple but elegant design, good linens and stylish furnishings add luxurious comfort to a simple, perfectly clean and quiet retreat. I love the gardens and having access to a meditation room The owners do not bargain... More

Quiet, clean, comfortable, spacious bedroom with separate eat-in kitchen / gracious hosts / lovely garden with turtles and fish pond, hot soaking pool and jacuzzi, and best of all from my point of view -- a perfectly designed 30-foot outdoor lap pool warm enough so there's no shock jumping in and because it's fed by natural hot springs needs no...

I am a former professional travel writer, national print, and I strenuously object to these open forums because people of questionable judgement can say anything they want, complain of toxins that are invisible to everyone else, noise no one else can here, and just imposing a set of standards that are utterly delusional. This place is beautiful, Karl and Ursula... More

My husband and I stayed in this dessert paradise in April of 2013. We loved it. The pools were sparkling clean and beautiful. The grounds were well maintained with a koi pond and waterfall. Our hosts were very accommodating and led a morning walk in the hills each day. The rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Next... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Swiss Health Resort. The spa is owned and run by Ursula and Karl, both Swiss, and they both are warm-hearted and caring people. The Spa including the rooms, the pools, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We highly recommend the Swiss Health Resort.

The Swiss Health resort is a quiet, relaxing, healthy place to rejuvenate. We have been here many times over 20 years. We always recommend Karl and Ursula's resort for friends who want to really relax and have quiet time to rejuvenate. As Swiss Americans, the hosts provide many elements that you would find if you traveled to their homeland which... More
