Pyramid Philosophy

A Healing Story

After achieving stunning results in her Salzburg practice with frequency treatments in a pyramid-shaped room, Gerti envisioned large-scale models where people could spend extended periods of time to recharge their internal batteries and experience the healing benefits of living and sleeping in a comfortable pyramid. Gerti’s deceased partner, engineer Walter Freller, brought the vision to life by successfully constructing a large pyramid dwelling in the mid-1990s. Freller’s patented design is both hurricane and earthquake proof with reduced energy use as compared to normal homes of a similar size.

Pyramid Village

Ahead of its Time

In Europe during the 90s, the time wasn’t right for this unconventional style, but in the US people were more open-minded to the concept. Florida authorities soon granted permits and building began. During construction, the couple discovered a warm thermal spring that became the source of the bathing lake our guests enjoy today. By pure chance, tourists were the first guests who quickly spread the word about their rejuvenating and enjoyable stay. The demand for additional space grew and over the course of 20 years, the village blossomed to accommodate 26 pyramid villas.

Striking a Rich Vein

The Origins of our Thermal Lake

Accidentally tapping into a warm water vein was the greatest gift we ever imagined during construction of pyramid village 20 years ago. When the geyser erupted and flooded the building site, we immediately smelled sulfur. We drilled 30 meters through rock, installed a pump, and created a lake to contain the surface water which analysis confirmed we had medicinal quality thermal water. The lake contains 188,000 gallons of constantly flowing water and uses a natural filtering process with quartz stones as well as copper to maintain sanitation. Twice a week we test water quality, and only occasionally do we add chlorine to disinfect. Today, the thermal lake is the heart and soul of Pyramids in Florida. Every guest experiences the valuable healing effect of the mineral water.
