Wellness area

The healing properties of the sauna have been known since time immemorial. Hot air in sauna induces perspiration and excretion of harmful substances, opens skin pores, improves the blood circulation, flexibility and appearance.

It accelerates metabolism, has anti-inflammatory, bactericidal effects and kills the mites that live on the human body. At the same time it gives you calm and relaxation. That is why we have prepared several types of sauna, combining which you can create your own wellness. We added to the area outdoor and indoor whirlpool and sensory showers, and a bucket full of cold water of the Tatra mountains.

Sauna enables overall sweat bath in the hot, dry air. Humidity is 10% to 25%, the ideal temperature is between 75 and 100°C. Part of sauna is the so called steam impact (sudden increase of air humidity, for example by pouring water on hot stones), changing the evacuation of perspiration, and the core temperature of the body is further increased. An inseparable part of sauna is the subsequent cooling with cold water (shower, immersion bath or swimming).
