Giardini Termali Poseidon - Forio

An island of peace conceived by man and shaped by nature", so are described the Poseidon Gardens, marvel nestled in the stunning beauty of the Island are now a landing must for many tourists and residents every day of the season summer and visit it enchanted by a place that never fails to stir emotions.

A natural and thermal park located in Forio, overlooking the beautiful bay of Citara, framed in a setting of rare natural beauty, a complex of 22 pools with temperatures ranging from 28 to 40 degrees. Of these, three are supplied with heated sea water, while all the other with thermal water drawn from underground. A group of four pools is placed inside a covered structure.

Upon completion of the thermal path, there are the well-equipped health club, sauna natural carved into the rock and the Japanese bath, a path strewn with pebbles on which to walk to stimulate the circulation and provide a sense of general well-being.

The park covers over 60,000 square meters, and is molded in steps, according to the traditional system of terraces, connected by stairways and walkways surrounded by greenery.

A great deal of attention, almost maniacal, is dedicated to the care of plants, from wild flowers, everywhere and treated intensively with the main purpose of the coexistence of the thermo-activity resort with environmental protection.

Mrs. Lucia Staudinger is for a few years at the helm of the thermal park that Dad Anton bought from the German steel magnate Anton Ludwig Kuttner.

It’s her to speak about the Gardens in more detail and make an assessment of this season with an eye toward the near future:

"The extraordinary longevity of this park is the result of work which we are involved non-stop for 12 months a year. The season is open to the public - which runs from April to November - sees the commitment of more than 100 employees located in different departments, such as parking, reception, cleaning and wardrobe, swimming pools and beaches, restaurants, gardens, spa and so on. The staff is the same for several years, is properly trained and able to offer a service that is always at the top. Great attention is paid to the reduction and separation of waste. Respect for the environment continues with the absolute renunciation to chemicals to treat the plants and the waters of our swimming pools. During the winter there shall be a program of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance very challenging: the proximity of the sea consumes and accelerates the degradation of structures and facilities. In this phase are repaired the stone walls, the mosaic covering the tanks, rebuilt installations, plastering, re-painted chairs and beds , repaired the thatch umbrellas.

The most important investments concern the restructuring of more complex structures: every year we try to insert some important news for the benefit of our guests, we are satisfied with this aspect of what has been done to date: the numbers are quite encouraging and we are happy especially the quality general of our guests. Good signs for the whole tourist sector come from the renewed interest in the island by foreigners".

The economy of the island of Ischia is affected by the global crisis, even on this and future projects of Poseidon, Lucia Staudinger has clear ideas:

'Ischia is an island rich in resources, as well as throughout Italy. Protecting, conserving and properly taking advantage of this immense wealth of resources should be among the first targets of a good government. Increasing the overall quality of services, from transport to roads, waste collection, reception catering. Much needs to be done to protect the environment, the control of the territory to the realization of purifiers, just to name a few. We operators must do our utmost to offer high quality services at a fair price. It is important to make sure that those who come to Ischia is willing to come back and make a good publicity. A simple recipe!

Even all the work and the huge investments made each year in our thermal park pursue the goal of creating a complex that supports the well-being and natural healing and prevention of certain diseases. For years, studies are in progress and collaborations with leading European universities that develop research on the beneficial effects of our waters. Therefore, the construction of a multipurpose space inside with a modern spa, space for dining and events is one of the projects we're working on. This new structure would result in considerable benefits for the community in terms of employment, induced and incoming”.

The Poseidon Thermal Park also offers excellent dining facilities. Antonio D'Abundo is more than 30 years involved in the famous "Grotta del Vino", one of the most beautiful places in the Poseidon Gardens with a stunning view over the bay of Citara. Here Antonio presents its guests to tasty cold appetizers including the famous bruschetta, one of the best on the island, according to the many tourists who visit it every day, and good taste is the octopus salad or DOC mozzarella of Campania, all accompanied by a glass of local wine.

"This is really one of the most beautiful places of Poseidon", says Antonio, "in these caves dug into the rock, the harvest was done by our ancestors, and hence the name of Grotta del vino!"

The Giardini Poseidon awaits you with their charm and the office of health and beauty that distinguish them. Do not miss the opportunity for a refreshing break in one of the most beautiful and comfortable place of the island of Ischia!
