Slovenian spas-PANONIAN SPA


-Moravske toplice (Terme 3000)
-Terme Lendava
-Terme Ptuj
-Terme Banovci

The Panonian sea which was in this area by the time of the Cenozoic era of the earth´s history has slowly disappeared and what remained was types of stone like marl, sandstone, natural gas and oil. Thus we can find at greater depths somewhere around 1,500 m amidst layers of sandstone remains of the once Panonian sea. By way of absorption they now lie in porous stone and since we can excavate them by means of the modern technology these remains well up in form of thermomineral water.

Panonske terme (Pannonian Spa) lie in the northeast of Slovenia. It is situated in the plains of Panonska nižina, Podravje and Pomurje, and is surrounded by wine-growing hills of Goričko and Slovenske gorice. The people of the region have lived in harmony with nature since ancient times. They have always taken from nature only the things they required, therefore nature abundantly endowed them.

Panonske terme unites 5 spas in northeast Slovenia and is a part of the business group Sava hotels & resorts. Terme 3000 Moravske Toplice has the most water surfaces and the most extensive offer in terms of accommodation and activities. Its outstanding quality is unique black thermal water which has specific healing properties. Terme Radenci is a modern and attractive spa resort with over 120-year spa tradition and springs of the world-famous mineral water Radenska – three hearts. Terme Banovci is characterised by peace and relaxation; while comfort, attention and kindness come to the fore in its guest relations. Nature has endowed Terme Lendava with extraordinary unique healing water which has a beneficial effect on the skin and with the unique landscape of Lendavske gorice. Terme Ptuj is one of the youngest and most modern spa resorts Slovenia which can take pride in its reputation as the oldest Slovene town.

Panonske terme offer you:

• water delights with more than 15,000 sq m of water surfaces, over 50 outdoor and indoor swimming pools, relaxation swimming pools, swimming pools for springboard diving, children’s pools, swimming pools with lanes;

There was a great excavation search for oil to the south of the village Moravci in 1960 and instead of the "black gold" what sprang up from the depth of 1,417 m was hot water with the temperature of 72°C. Stepping into the year 1962 and disappointed by not finding oil they stopped the drilling but the locals soon found out the healing effects of the hot water and used it for bathing in an improvised pool. This first pool measured 4×4 m and was 180 cm deep.

Years went by and certain changes happened – sometimes very quickly – and new bathing pools, sprouted up like mushrooms after rain. Accompanied by hotel and restaurant facilities. The peak of this development mark many new hotels and the apartment village Natural park Terme 3000 together with the modern bathing pools and the golf course.

THE LENDAVA HEALTH SPA is located at the foot of the Lendava wine-growing hills, at a point where the borders of Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia meet and where three different nationalities live together in harmony. The picturesque Lendava wine-growing hills with more than 4000 vineyards are a tourist attraction, so near to the Lendava Health Spa that we could almost think they are a part of it.

The beginnings of the Lendava health spa are slightly unusual, as is our unique and special fossil hyperthermal mineral water with healing effects. The water was discovered by chance in 1965 during oil drilling operations in the village of Petišovci. It was big disappointment. Instead of finding the longed-for oil, it was the hot water that came to the surface. In time the local residents discovered that bathing in this water soothes their pains, brought about by their age. The results of the physical and chemical analysis of the water showed that it is fossil water, namely sodium hydrogen carbonate hyperthermal water with 62°C.

The Lendava Health Spa's recent acquisition is by all means its renovated Lipa*** hotel, which offers many different things under one roof – a modern thermal baths, restaurants with select culinary offer, 120 modern hotel rooms (single, double, suites) with a shower, WC, balcony, satellite TV, radio, telephone, air conditioning and a hairdryer. An air-conditioned restaurant and conservatory, a pleasant tavern and neat terraces enable our guests and travellers to enjoy the diverse offer of traditional cuisine and drinks. Moreover, the guests can also stay in the Lipov gaj*** apartment village, where there are apartments of various sizes but all fitted with a kitchen niche, living room and a bedroom.

Karl Henn discovered the Slatinski springs in 1833, but their beneficial medicinal water was first bottled only three decades later. An analysis of its contents in 1871 ranked it among the most eminent mineral waters in Europe, and water from the Radenci springs was supplied to the imperial court in Vienna and the papal palace in Rome.

The Radenci Health Resort has developed by the natural mineral water sources and lies on the margins of the Pannonian Plain, in the green landscape of wheat fields and winegrowing hills along the Mura River. Radenci Health Resort lies on 208m altitude, close to country borders with Austria, Croatia and Hungary.

Together theye have 640 beds in Radin superior ****, Radin standard ****, Izvir **** and Terapija ** hotels. The reception desk for the all 4 hotels in hotel foyer, there is also hotel bar, near by is restaurant with international cuisine and coffeehouse.

One of Slovenia’s youngest health resorts is part of the picturesque landscape in the heart of Štajerska. The plain with its fields and meadows through which the Drava River meanders slowly is encircled by the soft hills of Haloze and Slovenske gorice.

Ptuj-for centuries a contact point between nations, from Celts and Illyrians to Romans and Slavs-gazes across the footbridge over the Drava at the resort.

There are many reasons for the popularity of Terme Ptuj. Medicinal springs of low-mineral thermal water, the renowned winegrowing region of Haloze, and Ptuj’s diverse cultural and historical heritage that includes a temple to the ancient Persian god Mithras give a special advantage to this health resort.

Along with the comprehensive health, recreation, and cultural offer provided by Terme Ptuj and the nearby town, guests enjoy one of the most valued commodities of our time, peace and quiet.




Health is stored in the Banovci mineral springs – Curative thermal water: After extensive medical research the water has been certified by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia as a natural substance with medicinal properties and classified as therapeutic. The indications for curative treatment at Banovci Thermal Spa are acknowledged for bone, joint and muscle problems and their post-operative care. The spa is known for its treatments in the fields of orthopaedics, traumatology and rheumatology.

Peaceful environment: Banovci Thermal Spa is located in the midst of green fields outside the industrial centre. Vineyards may be found near by and admired for their beauty, particularly in the fall.

Well-being: The main concern of every employee is to make our guests feel well. People living in our region lead simple lives, nevertheless, they are open-hearted and cheerful.

Recreation: Walking, cycling, recreational activities in water and outdoors are appropriate for all ages. We recommend that recreational cyclists explore the routes of the Pannonic lowlands whereas those who are more active may try the routes on the surrounding hills strewn with vineyards.

The Strunjan Health Resort lies in a wonderful setting in the midst of Mediterranean green. Strunjan Bay with its calm position offers sanctuary to ancient salt pans that testify silently to the work of man through distant centuries. Here, the breath of modern times and the traditional lifestyle meet in the best possible manner.

Although most people will swear that the seaside is just the place for a summer vacation, many like to enjoy its beauties in the fall and spring as well. The offer of the Strunjan Health Resort is based on the beneficial powers of natural sea water, the microclimate, the salt-pan mud, the expertise of the medical staff, and the modern therapeutic facilities; the resort treats lung patients and mitigates rheumatic diseases and conditions following injuries to or operations on the locomotor system.

On summer days, guests can enjoy themselves on the hotel beach, and on cooler days an indoor pool with heated sea water and a variety of recreational activities are at their disposal. Thus, guests can take care of their well being and condition themselves or let the experienced hands of the masseurs and therapists help them.

The story of the saltworker and his salt pans began in Portorož in Roman times. From the beginning, the saltworkers recognized the beneficial effects of the salt pan mud and brine, and in the 13th century the Benedictine monks already employed a precise and well-established methodology using both natural elements for treating excess weight, dropsy, and rheumatism. In the 17th century, pilgrims healed themselves by smearing themselves with salt pan mud, drying the mud in the sun, and then bathing in brine. Today, the millennium-old tradition of the saltworker and his salt pans lives on at the Terme & Wellness Palace.

Portorož is a seaside town with a hundred-year-old spa tradition. In the very centre of the town close to the sea arose the Terme & Wellness Palace, unique in its use of five local natural medicinal elements: salt pan mud or fango, brine or “Acqua madre,” the maritime climate, sea water, and thermomineral water. Its offer combines all the advantages and assets of a seaside destination, the Sečovlje salt flats, the Mediterranean climate, the ancient sciences and the tradition of the Far East, and the most up-to-date medical knowledge at its modern thermal spa and wellness centres: the Thalasso Centre, the Ayurveda Centre, the Beauty Centre, the Medical and Physiotherapy Centre, and the Thermal-Recreational Centre.

Renovated at the beginning of 2006, the Terme & Wellness Palace offers a series of innovations:

- the completely renovated Thalasso Centre with new treatments and the revolutionary Aquablitz anti-cellulite therapy

- the new Ayurveda Centre offering an authentic Indian ambience with a holistic approach and various ayurvedic treatments carried out by professional ayurvedic therapisits under the supervision of an ayurveda doctor. All products employed are made from exclusively natural materials of the highest quality and produced according to authentic Indian recipes

- the Medical and Physiotherapy Centre introducing new services in the field of dermatology including minor cosmetic skin surgery, densitometry (bone mineral density test), and mesotherapy, which effectively removes stubborn cellulite

- Pilates Holistic Centre: Pilates exercise programs, Pilates yoga, and Pilates body techniques on professional equipment supervised by a team of experts
