Place and Hotel

The Bristol Buja Hotel in Abano Terme will be once again our oasis. We are going to spend regenerating days: mind and body will benefit from the thermal waters properties, and Bridge from… lessons and tournaments!

Abano Terme

Abano Terme is a town in the province of Padova, at the feet of Euganei Hills, gifted with thermal waters with excellent therapeutic properties. For this reason, Abano is one of the most important mud-therapeutic towns in the world.

While walking in Abano’s fairy promenade, it’s hard to resist the temptation to stop and admire the beautiful fountains or browse the shop windows of the numerous boutiques.
Among Abano’s squares and streets, art lovers will be able to identify the touch of the architect Giuseppe Jappelli and maybe take the opportunity to visit the very near Padova. Here, the show of the S. Antonio’s Cathedral, of the Eremitani Chapel, of the clock tower in Piazza Dei Signori and the charm of the town that impressed Shakespeare, Mozart and Dante could induce the visitors to… be late for the tournament!

Bristol Buja Hotel

Bristol Buja Hotel is very close to the town Center and extends on an area that includes 20,000 square metres of private park.

Four swimming pools, two indoor and two outdoor ones surrounded by a pinehood are available for the guests.

At the lunch and dinner table, the simplicity of Veneto flavours lives in harmony with the refined splendours of international cuisine. The menu is daily renewed by a team of Chefs that propose reinterpretations of traditional recipes, regional flavours, and Mediterrean cuisine. Every meal becomes a taste experience.


Thermal waters. Diving in the warmth of thermal waters, surrounded by the nature, in the middle of winter, is not a common experience. We will be able to swim and to relax, surrounded by the beautiful pinehood, with the hydro massages.

Saunas. They call it “the kingdom of Saunas”. It includes Finnish sauna with chromotherapy and musictherapy, grotto with thermal vapours, aromatised Turkish bath, cold kneipp path, Scottish shower and relaxation area.

Massages, muds, mud-bath-therapy. These therapies are ideal in order to favour microcirculation, to reinforce joints, in the treatment of cellulite and cutaneous aging and against stress.

Medical treatments. Hotel provides a team of skilled doctors for medical treatments.
Our guests will benefit from a 10% discount on all wellness treatments.

Golf. Golf Clubs La Montecchia, Frassanelle, and Padova are among the most prestigious Golf fields in the North of Italy. They are few km apart from the hotel. Our guests will enjoy green fees at special rates.
