It’s only the beginning of winter, however with chilly October and November behind, many of us can already have a bad case of the winter blues. There’s no better remedy than unwind and throw the cares away with a massage, cozy robe, and pair of warm slippers. Plan a weekend getaway to seek out luxury and relaxation at one of these best spa hotels in Ukraine.
Verholy Relax Park
Located in a picturesque pine forest in Poltava region, Verholy Relax Park hotel complex is one of the most stylish and comfortable hotels of Ukraine. New SPA complex with an indoor swimming pool, gym and hotel rooms is just another result of brilliant work of Ukrainian architects and designers. New SPA complex was opened at the beginning of 2016. It is a separate building offering maximum of recreational facilities. Previously there was a club of the Almaz pioneer camp here. Designers had to work hard to reconstruct and modernize the soviet era architecture. And they succeeded.
SPA complex is functionally zoned in accordance with different kinds of treatments and leisure activities. There are two heated pools on the territory – one for children (4x4 m) and one for adults (14x7 m). The second one seems much larger than its actual size due to the optical illusion (walls of the pool bowl dive in water from three sides and there are no boarders along the perimeter). There are comfortable lounge chairs around the pool, where guests can relax after swimming. There is also a jacuzzi zone, specially designed for hydro-massage lovers.
Modern bath-house can bring not only health benefits but also give an esthetic pleasure. It offers different types of sweat bathes: hammam (Turkish bath), infrared sauna, Russian bath and sanarium (sauna with aromatherapy). There are three massage rooms for classical and bath massage next to it.
For those who cannot imagine their life without sports they designed a spacious fitness room with a wide variety of up-to-date Technogym equipment. Through panoramic windows guests can watch the horses at the local racetrack and enjoy scenic views of a pine forest while exercising. Such approach helps not only to fully sense an outdoor recreation but also makes the building completely dissolve in the environment.
