SPA TRADITIONS IN ESTONIA
The country’s spa traditions date back hundreds of years. One of the reasons such resorts developed here was the local mud famed for its therapeutic qualities. Pärnu, Haapsalu, Kuressaare and Narva-Jõesuu have been fashionable resorts since the 1820s, while Värska, Kubija, Pühajärve, Toila, Viimsi and of course Tallinn also boast excellent spas.
COMBINE HOLIDAY WITH HEALTH CARE AND WELLBEING
The popularity of spas is a reflection of the developments in Estonia’s health tourism. With the hectic lives we lead today a refreshing break is one of the best ways of staying healthy. High-quality treatments and therapy will help you get the most out of your stay at any spa resort.
COMPETENT MEDICAL SERVICE AND QUALIFIED CONSULTATION
2008 saw the completion of a medical spa hotel quality system, and the first therapeutic spas underwent accreditation. The system was designed to inform clients of the range of services available and of the nature of these services. The fact that the services meet the requirements of the system – and the extent to which they meet them – is a sign of quality that clients can be guided by in visiting Estonia’s spas.
So far, 4-star medical spa status hasbeen granted to TallinnViimsi Spa hotel (near Tallinn), while 3-starstatus has been granted to Toila Spa Hotel in Toila, Tervis Medical Spa in Pärnu, the Viiking Spa Hotel and Estonia Medical Spa Hotel in Pärnu, FraMare Thalasso Spa and Spa Hotel Laine in Haapsalu and Värska Spa Hotel & Water Park in Värska.
A quality system is also being developed for wellness spas, as part of which we hope to be able to certify the first centres in the near future.
Come and enjoy Estonia spa culture.
