|Subject: Re: Spas in Slovenia|
Radenci is maybe the most famous but I have been at the Catez Spa (Cateske
Toplice in Slovenian) about 100 km from Ljubljana on the road to Zagreb
(Croatia). It is a quiet and nice place along the Sava river, a few hotels
grouped inside a small park, but it has a large outdoor water park with
pools, slides and sundeck (sorry the season is wrong!). I stayed at the
largest hotel, Hotel Terme, not really a show because it's all gray
concrete and a bit worn inside, but it has a private indoor spa pool. The
friendly staff speak enough English (tourists are mainly Germans there) and
the food is tasty. In fall of 1998 the price for one double room and buffet
breakfast was 32,000 SIT (90USD) per night, including free use of spa pool.
Other hotels are of smaller size and not all have a private pool. I think
cleanliness and quality are quite acceptable.
The surroundings offer a magnificent view of wooded hills, old abbeys and
If you are leaving next week, be prepared to take a lot of rain! I remember
one sunny day out of four in mid September.....
