Seven reasons to visit a spa in the summer
Let's get started! So what do you need for the perfect summer break? Water to splash in, spots to unwind at, the outdoors to enjoy, delectable bites to tickle your taste buds, starry skies to daydream beneath... Yes, Slovenian spas have it all! Let’s take a look at all they have to offer.
AQUAFUN – fun and refreshment in one
Splashing in the water is one of the most vital parts of the summer holiday repertoire. You'll find much more than that at spas. Not only do they have swimming pools fed by healthy thermal and mineral waters, there are also adventurous water parks where daring water slides, fast and slow rivers, surprising water effects, themed water temples and fun programmes await visitors of all ages.
PAMPERING for wellbeing and confidence in one’s skin
We believe that everyone wants to feel good in their own skin and spas certainly know how to get you there. With plenty of massages and baths to choose from, you'll release your pent-up tension and give your skin and body a new glow with beauty pampering and care treatments. You'll be able to jump into your swimsuit and your favourite clothes with ease, radiating fresh energy.
ACTIVE OUTDOOR TIME – combining enjoyable and useful pursuits
The surroundings of Slovenia's natural health resorts and spas provide plenty of opportunities for walks in the great outdoors; alternatively, you can take an excursion on foot or by bicycle and discover the special features of the area where the spa is located. Playgrounds and sports facilities can also be found within the spa centres. There’re plenty of active adventures for children as well. Some spas also have golf courses, where you can take in a round or two. And of course, there’s swimming and water exercises in thermal pools.
SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS – campsites and glamping at spas
Summer romance – just imagine it: the heavenly night sky above you, sprinkled with countless stars, the song of crickets in the air and warm summer breezes caressing your skin. Yes, you can experience this at Slovenia's spa centres, where guests can luxuriate in modern hotels or choose a slightly more adventurous option of campsites and glamping lodges. These come in a variety of surprising alternatives, from deluxe tents to wine barrels, pirate huts and beehives. Naturally, you’ll still be provided with all the comforts you need for a carefree holiday.
FRESH LOCAL FLAVOURS for wellbeing
Slovenian spas pamper not only your body and soul, but also your taste buds. Start your day with a delicious and balanced breakfast and a refreshing smoothie, and savour a variety of flavours that reflect the character of the local cuisine for lunch and dinner. Best of all, you'll enjoy fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables and other local ingredients.
SELFNESS – outdoor yoga and meditation
It’s normal to feel overwhelmed and stressed at times. Get rid of all the worries, stress and troubles, and breathe deeply. Spas can help you reconnect with yourself and establish inner balance. In the warmer months, you can do this outdoors, in a natural setting. Join yoga and meditation classes in the green surroundings of the spas and feel the positive energy emanating from nature. Boost your energy with Ayurveda and other traditional practices.
SUSTAINABILITY – a break with a green future in mind
Looking after yourself and your wellbeing goes hand in hand with thinking sustainably. This is what you can experience at Slovenian spas and natural health resorts. Natural (local) factors are a key component of thermal spa programmes. Local stories are woven into the spa’s range of products and services. Restaurants serve dishes made from local ingredients. Spas are also thinking sustainably when it comes to relaxation, and so more and more spas can boast the Slovenia Green label for their accommodation.
