When heat is freshening
Sauna is a great relaxing and regenerative method. It is also one of the most significant means of hardening of the human body and of detoxification. In our wellness you can enjoy Finnish, herbal steam and infrared saunas.
The dry sauna positively affects our health. It is great for prevention against various diseases and it increases the body’s self- protective abilities.

A modern method of taking sauna that uses infrared light. The main difference from traditional saunas is in that the infrared rays penetrate the skin in- depth. Sweating is more intense, while the skin remains relatively colder. Thanks to this the polluting particles are easily dissolved and released from the body, pores are purified and dead cells cleared away. The body spends increasing amounts of energy and gets rid of fats. The immune system is strengthened, so the organism becomes more resistant to colds and bears both physical and psychological load better. Infrared sauna can bring the body and the mind into a state of harmony and balance. This type of sauna is especially suitable for people who cannot withstand high temperatures.

The effectiveness of a massage has been well known ever since the time of ancient civilizations. This time- tested relaxing and regenerating method can positively influence both physical and psychological state of humans, as it helps with many health problems, injuries, or stress. We offer you several types of massages, each of which has its own purpose and effect.
Improves blood circulation in skin and muscles, helps release spasmodic and aching muscles and contributes to better releasing of toxins from the body. Thanks to regular classical massage the skin on your body will be more flexible, helping you to prevent pains which often are a consequence of spasmodic muscles. Classical massage is also helpful in recovering from muscle and joint problems after a long period of passivity due to fracture or other injuries. It is very suitable for people with sedentary jobs, and in cases of pains that originate in various blockages resulting from injuries or overload of the organism.
Lava stones have exceptionally powerful energetic vibrations, which together with warmth can get rid of blocks on meridians (energetic paths) and make energy flow in your body. They carry and transmit heat energy which positively impacts not only the skin and muscles, but also fosters blood circulation in vessels and blood oxidation, speeds up metabolism in body tissues as well as body detoxification. It also impacts positively the lymphatic system and muscle relaxation connected with pain relief. This massage has anti- stress effects, helps to activate the body’s immunity mechanism and takes away negative energy from the body. It is recommended for people who suffer from back pain, stiff muscles, weak blood circulation, arthritis, stress, anxiety, insomnia…
Honey massage significantly helps to rid the body of toxins. The detoxifying effect of honey and the specific technique of massaging enable to release the poisonous substances from deep in the body. The healing force of honey works its way through the skin into the blood circulatory system. Honey massage is suitable in cases of civilizational diseases and their prevention, for example in cases of rheumatic diseases of muscles and joints; arthrosis; allergies (except for honey allergy); chronic problems with the respiratory tract and digestive problems; chronic fatigue; problems with sleeping; regeneration after serious diseases; nervous disorders; gynaecological problems; fungal infections; liver, kidney, and pancreas diseases; impotence and infertility related problems; skin problems, and many others.
This Hawaiian massage is a special one, based on long, continuous movements which make energy flow in a rhythmic way. It stimulates blood circulation and the lymphatic system, detoxifies and diminishes pain, fatigue and tension. The massaging technique has a high relaxing and therapeutic effect. Lomi Lomi releases muscle blockages and supports the flow of vital energy in a harmonic direction. It is recommended in cases of muscle pains, after physical load and as a supportive method in overall body regeneration.
On the human foot there are many bigger and smaller areas and points that are connected, by reflex arcs, to a certain part of the body or a certain organ. By the technique of stimulating these reflex points it is possible to positively influence all processes in the body. The sensitivity of the concrete points enables one to assess the health of individual organs. During this massage it is possible to find out which systems in the organism are out of balance and subsequently their work can be brought back to harmony. The reflexology foot massage helps with digestive difficulties; post- injury states; headaches and back pain; sleeping disorders and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The guests can make use of special wooden tub for alternating feet and hand and arms ‘bathing’. A special shower then serves for more simple procedures of body watering. The guests apply the cures themselves, following an exact manual that can be found in the wellness. The cure itself usually starts in warm water and ends in cold water. The ‘stepping bath’ in cold water increases blood circulation in limbs, improves local metabolism, activates skin receptors, and has a soothing effect. It is helpful in cases of headaches and migraines as well. Generally, the procedures with cold water are very short, the ‘warm procedures’, on the contrary, last longer. While the cold water makes blood circulate and strengthens immunity, the warm water releases tension and relaxes muscles. Alternating between cold and warm water is thus particularly effective.
|Temperature:||Cold water 10 – 16 °C, Warm water 35 – 40 °C|
The Jacuzzi combines a water bath with massage through air and massaging jets. Bathing here has relaxing and anti- stress effects. It is recommended in all cases of illness of the musculoskeletal system, for fighting stress and tension, and in cases of feelings of physical and mental exhaustion.
|Temperature:||36 – 37 °C|
|Recommended duration of procedure:||15 – 20 min.|
A whiff of the sea
For our hotel guests we have an outdoor swimming pool of 13.5 metres, filled with water with sea salt which works as disinfection agent (instead of chlorine). Unlike chlorine, sea salt does not produce the unpleasant smell and it does not dry up skin or hair. The minerals contained in sea salt are actually beneficial for the skin. Water with sea salt has antiseptic effect and helps with healing of eczema and other skin conditions. The salt positively impacts the upper respiratory tract, which is desirable especially for people suffering from allergies or asthma. Swimming in a pool with sea salt has a beneficial effect on both your body and mind.
