Medical spa stays
The therapy and wellness centre at this balneo spa provides more than 60 treatments. The healing effects of the local thermal mineral water and sulphur mud were first described by physicians in the 14th century. Special, anti-fungal mud is used in balneological treatments such as wraps and packs. The thermal mineral water gushes forth from springs at 67-69°C and is used in hydrotherapy to help inflammatory, muscular, neural, orthopaedic and post-traumatic disorders in a relaxing, non-invasive manner. The island is an effective location for spa rehabilitation after surgery or treatment.
This huge spa hotel has six smoke-free restaurants to whet the appetite. The Seasons Dine&Grill Restaurant offers modern, à la carte versions of Slovak and international dishes and monthly seasonal treats. The Orchidea, Freesia, Rosa, Calla, Lilium restaurants all offer international and Slovak specialities, and also a choice of lighter, healthy dishes with organic ingredients. The Park Café has a lovely summer garden where guests enjoy salads, cakes and coffee, while the Poolside bar by the indoor pool offers snacks, beer and healthy cocktails. The Retro Bar is a popular destination for those who like to dance to live music, and the Impressions band play regularly.
For meetings, events and conferences, visitors are spoilt for choice of venue at the Esplanade Hotel. The island of Spa Piešťany offers meeting facilities, catering and wellness services at 3-star, 4-star and 5-star standards. The Alexander Salon hosts 20 people in natural light, making it perfect for discussions, lectures or presentations. Four more salon-sized rooms can hold smaller meetings, while the Congress Centre nearby has space for 400 guests.
Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sisi) and Beethoven were also fans of Piestany’s sulphurous medicinal water.
The main attraction of this small town in Slovakia – also referred to by the town’s official symbol, a statue of a man breaking his crutches (the work of Arthur Heyer) – is the medicinal thermal water that bubble up on the spa island in the river Vág. The town has several great cafés, an aquatic and equestrian sport centre and a golf course for holiday-makers to enjoy.
