Kurotel Longevity Center and Spa

Gramado, Brazil

Elegantly appointed, this full-service resort and spa is enveloped by verdant natural surroundings, an inspiring backdrop for its programs based on the European kur tradition: an integrated system that heals, cleanses, and rejuvenates mind and body. Guests laud the 24/7 individualized attention possible with a staff-to-guest ratio of nearly three to one. Kurotel offers cellular revitalization treatments (the only South American spa, they claim, to do so), acupuncture, and anti-smoking programs, among other treatment protocols. Cooking classes and visits to charming local neighborhoods provide relaxing ways to enjoy downtime. The new Kur Estacao das Aguas day spa is dedicated to water therapies and beauty treatments.
