The SPA & wellness sector is enjoying growing popularity. Learn about the best SPA & wellness facilities in Poland.
On this increasingly competitive market, it is necessary to constantly enrich the offers available and set new areas of development. People visit SPAs not only to improve their health, but also to relax, both during holidays and at weekends. According to the sanus per aquam principle, the offers of SPA centres are based on the use of water, both for leisure purposes and for pro-health procedures. They are to make us feel healthier and stronger.
Biological regeneration at SPAs
The best Polish SPAs offer a wide range of biological regeneration procedures. They include re-mineralising baths (mud baths, baths with the addition of herbs, chocolate, beer and rose petals), aromatherapy baths, saunas (e.g. Finnish, steam and salt steam ones), sessions by salt graduation towers, manual therapy procedures and massages. A particular type of such a facility is one making use of thermal springs. The largest concentration of these places can be found in towns and villages situated near the Tatra Mountains: Bukovina Thermal Baths in Bukowina Tatrzańska, Thermal Baths in Zakopane, Thermal Baths in Szaflary, and Bania Thermal Baths in Białka Tatrzańska. Very popular at the Sudety Mountains, in turn, are the Cieplice Baths in Cieplice-Zdrój. The facilities in central Poland which are worthy of notice include the Uniejów Thermal Spa, Mineral Pools in Solec-Zdrój and Malta Thermal Baths in Poznań. A real curiosity in this segment is constituted by the Roman Thermae in Czeladź (Silesia), whose spatial arrangement refers to the ancient baths in Pompeii.
SPA & wellness offers in Poland
In terms of area occupied, the largest SPA & wellness facilities in Poland are dominated by water parks with separated swimming pools and entertainment zones, with water slides, cascades, cannons, carousels, artificial waves, waterfalls, and side and bottom massage zones. Everyone, irrespectively of their age, will find something interesting there.
Along with the expansion of this market segment, SPA facilities in Poland are aiming at emphasising their individuality and the original profiles of activities. Thus, we can distinguish, e.g. beauty farms (Beauty SPA), family SPAs (Family SPA), wedding and couples SPAs, SPAs for men, and SPAs for mothers with children (Femi & Baby SPA). A separate category covers SPA facilities devoted to aesthetic medicine (Medical wellness & SPA, Medi & Estetique SPA). In mountain regions, which are preferred in winter because of skiing offers, the best SPAs prepare special offers for their active guests (Ski & Snow SPA).
