Balaton – home of wellness…
Wellness… good environment, spiritual-physical well-being. The perfect harmony of body, soul and spirit, in which physical fitness, a healthy diet, relaxation and spiritual activity all play major roles. Wellness is a lifestyle that may even prevent certain types of illnesses. Due to recent years of tourism product development and following the western example, an increasing number of Hungarian hotels, including those in the Balaton region, place wellness activities and recreation in the centre of their service profile.
Initially, only hotels that offered the basic interpretation of a “spa,” such as thermal springs, therapeutic waters, swimming pools and other water services marketed their wellness services. Later, however, the water-related services were extended with additional services, such as fitness classes, beauty treatments and dietary consultation. This resulted in a wider interpretation of the “spa concept”—more towards a lifestyle and an attitude where the wellness of the self is of utmost importance. Engage in a light stroll on the picturesque shores of the Balaton and in the trekking areas of the Balaton Highlands. Afterwards indulge yourself with relaxing spa therapies and treatments and take time to relax at the Balaton Minor.
The miracle-working medicinal lake at Hévíz is also situated in the Balaton region, which is entirely one-of-a-kind in Europe. The therapeutic powers of the lake have been recognized for centuries. The Hévíz medicinal lake is the world’s largest biologically active natural thermal lake; it is situated in an unparalleled environment about six kilometers from Lake Balaton.
