Wellness/Day spa day trip from Zurich/Winterthur

I'm looking for recommendations for a really nice day spa to send my mother for a day that's doable with public transport from Winterthur/Zurich as a day trip. Somewhere with nice views would be a bonus. I sent her to the Dolder last time she was over so somewhere else would be good.

Re: Wellness/Day spa day trip from Zurich/Winterthur

We went to Bad Ragaz (me + OH + her mum) on a day trip from Zurich. Lovely scenery on the train, nice easy day. It's about a 15-20m walk from the train station in Bad Ragaz to the spa.

The hotels alongside are magnificent, with magnificent prices to match! We contented ourselves with looking at the outsides of them

Re: Wellness/Day spa day trip from Zurich/Winterthur

Well the options suggested here are fine. However, if you want to try something unconventional, I would recommend the Therme in Vals, Graubünden.

http://www.therme-vals.ch/en/

It is not the closest place to ZH, but you can make it for a short week-end or even one day (but you would spend lot of time on the road). The true good thing about it is the design of the place and the location, in the heart of the mountains. Really wonderful.

Hi everyone, I know that the Dolder in Zurich has a very nice spa, if you're searching something like this? (https://www.thedoldergrand.com/spa.html)

The Dolder is ok, but nothing to get excited about. A nice, but small, indoor pool. Some nice saunas/snow room. A couple of very nice outdoor hottubs with a view over Zurich.

But if you are not a guest, it costs a bomb.

thermalbad-zuerich.ch is much better and about 1/10th the price. The problem is that it's so crowded, unless you go first thing Sunday morning or (apparently) late in the evening.

If anyone knows somewhere that is easily accessible by public transport, within 1.5 hours of Zurich, I'd love to know. Bonus points if the place is child-free (sorry kids!).

Rigi Kaltbad day spa - you need about 2 hours to get there but reasonably cheap to access pool / saunas, and there is an outdoor pool which you can swim up to the edge and look across the valley at the mountains. Massages are divine.
