Already the Romans knew to use the power of thermal springs for curative reasons. Thanks to many natural thermal baths in Hungary, the country is one of Europe's most renowned destinations for spa and health trips. The bathing culture of the Hungarians is very health conscious and lively which is why you can find young and old all enjoying the warm thermal pools in the many health resorts.

The surroundings of our health spa hotels in Hungary are characterised by bubbling springs, picturesque, mainly flat landscapes, glistening lakes and the river Danube flowing gentling through the country, almost dividing it in half. Some of our health spa hotels in Hungary are closely located to Lake Balaton, with 78 km the largest lake of this diverse country.

Thermal Tradition in Budapest: Budapest thermal baths have a century long history and tradition. Over 2,000 years ago, the first thermal springs were discovered under the city close to the Danube river, Buda Hills and Gellert Hill. Due to the highest density of thermal springs (more than 125) compared to any other capital city in the world, Budapest owns many health spa hotels around these areas.

When visiting our health spa hotels, you will be able to overlook the glistening Danube river. Built in the years 1873 and 1918, both health spa hotels have traditional architecture. Feel the history of thermal springs on your skin when smoothly sinking into the warm therapeutic pools and enjoy the exceptional service by the professional staff.

The layout of the health spa hotels is mostly very similar: they offer multiple indoor thermal pools with varying temperatures from warm to hot, (infrared) saunas, ice-cold plunge pools, salt caves and massage rooms.

If you are visiting one of our health spa hotels for wellness purposes, you might find some time to enjoy a stroll through the culturally rich city of Budapest.

Margaret Island: Focusing on thermal and relaxing spa holidays, two of our best health spa hotels in Hungary are located on the versatile and calm Margaret Island. The Margaret bridge connects the small island to the two cities Buda and Pest across the Danube river. Our spa resorts offer elegant and traditional wellness centres, thermal pools as well as teams of experts, providing perfect conditions for a regenerating holiday for you. Surrounded by green parks, a romantic Japanese garden, an open-air theatre and historical sights, the unique location of the hotels offer you different activities next to your treatments.

Bad Hévíz – The Heart of the Thermal Spring Region: We invite you to visit Hungary’s most important bath town. Its traditional baths will remind you of the wonders of the past. The town of Bad Hévíz, which literally translates to “hot water”, holds approximately 1,000 thermal springs. Using the natural healing power for the thermal water, programmes are focused on curative treatments or relaxing wellness purposes.

All of our health spa hotels in this region are centrally located to the second largest thermal lake in the world, Lake Héviz. This medicinal lake is known for its curative mud and its magnesium and calcium rich water. Thanks to these valuable healing properties, the lake offers benefits especially for guests with joint diseases such as osteoporosis and arthritis, skin issues, metabolism complaints and post-injury treatment.

Our health spa hotels here are very well equipped and the staff makes sure that your every wish is heard. Exquisite saunas, thermal bathing facilities, own therapy centres, and an overall relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere will stimulate your recovery process and let you sink into pure relaxation.

If you are looking for an extra special experience, why not slide into the warm thermal lake of Bad Héviz during the cold winter days. Because of its constant temperature of 30°C (86°F), curative treatments and relaxing swims can be enjoyed all year round.

Medicinal Grotto in Tapolca: Famous for its caves and streams and natural mineral springs, Tapolca health spa hotels lay in the western part of the Balaton Lake highlands. The special feature of the hotel is its location. Situated directly above a Medicinal grotto system, our four-star health spa holds its own mineral-rich thermal spring. The cave’s special microclimate, constant warm temperature and high humidity, support the recovery from respiratory diseases. It is therefore a great option if you are looking for a medically focused health holiday in Hungary. Or, are you interested in enjoying a simply relaxing wellness holiday? The hotel offers different excellent sport facilities, an own beauty salon, cosy saunas and breathing treatments in the grotto. We invite you to take a look at our programme offers and be inspired for your next beauty and wellness break in this remarkable health spa town.

The Jewel of Thermal Springs between Bad Bük & Bad Sárvár: Located along the renowned thermal spring region, Bad Bük and Bad Sárvár account to two of the most popular destinations in Hungary.

Bubbling deep underneath Bad Sárvár, two hot thermal springs established the reputation of this historically significant place as a spa town. Using the natural healing power of the thermal waters, our health spa hotels in this region focus on the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, gynaecological and dermatological issues, rehabilitation of intervertebral disc operations and other rehabilitation purposes. Because of its high-qualitative therapy offers, the town belongs to the “Royal Spas of Europe”.

Bad Bük has an equally outstanding reputation and history of health spa hotels. Located close to the Austrian border, the town doesn’t only invite for a visit to its neighbour country, but more so for a curative or relaxing holiday in one of our health spa hotels. Discovered by a fortunate coincidence more than 50 years ago, Bad Bük owes its international reputation as a thermal and spa town to its medicinal springs.

Regardless of age, suffering from serious health conditions or simply staying for a relaxing wellness weekend, Bad Bük provides you with a variety of offers to help you experience your perfect health holiday according to your personal needs.

Bad Zalakaros:

Its status as the city of healing thermal springs originated in the 1960 when hot volcanic springs were found by coincidence during drill works for oil. Since then, thermal baths and curative hotels have been built and attract many visitors searching for relieve of their symptoms. These symptoms mainly cover rheumatic, dermatologic and gynaecologic/urologic problems. But the health spa town is not only known for its curative and relaxing thermal water: Surrounded by romantic vine- and fruit yards, visitors can explore the region on bikes or by foot in the midst of green nature and a rich flora and fauna in this region all year round. There’s a reason that this romantic town is known as Europe’s Flower City.

Hungarian Culture and Culinary

With your stay in one of our health spa hotels in Hungary, you have the unique chance to dive into the world of the traditional Hungarian cuisine. To fulfil the ultimate living-abroad experience, you should give it a go and try the extravaganza of different flavours of the Hungarian cuisine. With spicy, rich and creative flavours, the Hungarian cuisine is a delicious discovery for many of our customers.

Traditional Hungarian dishes are mainly based on meat, seasonal vegetables, fresh bread with a dip (e.g. sour cream), dairy products, fruits and cheeses. The best-known national Hungarian dish certainly is goulash (Hungarian: gulyás). Internationally known as a meat stew, it actually is a soup made with meat. Hungarians have different names for it: Pörkölt and Tokány.

Used for flavouring the goulash and many other dishes, is the one of the key ingredients the red-powdered spice paprika. With its peppery and spicy taste, it adds a kick to every meal. Onions, potatoes, noodles, cabbage are other basic stables of the Hungarian cuisine. Palacsinta is another favourite. It is a pancake and often rolled or wrapped around different kinds of fillings.

Throughout the world, Hungarians are known for their delicious cakes and pastries. Brought to Hungary by the Turks, the flaky pastry dough called phyllo or filo is originally made out of honey and nuts. Hungarians brought their own twist to pastries and cakes by using own ingredients such as cherries, apples and poppy seeds. Et voilà: the famous dessert called strudel was born.
