I spent last weekend at Balvanyos Spa – one of the most beautiful Spas I’ve been to in Romania. It’s situated between the Tusnad Baths and Targu Secuiesc, surrounded by a beautiful pine forest, near Lake Sfanta Ana. The entire hotel has large, floor to ceiling windows that offer a very cozy atmosphere, especially at the Spa area. During the colder months you’ll have an amazing view of the snow covered trees directly from the pool. During summer you can also enjoy the outside area of the Spa.
In the Spa area you’ll not only find a big swimming pool but also 2 big jacuzzis, with spring and salt water. Although the hotel was fully booked during our stay, the spa was not overcrowded. I was alone in the jacuzzi at times.
In the outside area of the Spa you’ll find a swimming pool (I’d say it’s for summer days only but you do you) and a hot tub which I really enjoyed. You’ll also find lots of different saunas and steam baths, inside and outside.
I really liked the decor made out of non slippery stone (very important) and the ambient music. This was one of the most relaxing spa experiences I’ve had in Romania. A small but well equipped gym with a beautiful view over the forest is another thing you can enjoy at Balvanyos Resort.
On Sunday we went for a short trip to lake Saint Ana and because of the bad weather, straight home afterwards.
