About the Spa Resort in Piešťany
Unlike most jam-packed itineraries which leave you feeling like you need a holiday once you return home, Eva’s European Spa tours end with a restorative break in Piešťany, a picturesque heath resort town in Slovakia.
Surrounded by mountains and hugging the river Váh, Piešťany is not only beautiful – it is famous for its healing thermal springs and world-class spas. In fact, Lonely Planet recently named Piešťany as one of the top 20 spa destinations in Europe.
As the fitting finale to your European adventure, this is a break to relax, restore and re-energise. You unpack once and the package includes everything – all accommodation, three daily meals and four daily (except on Sunday) spa treatments. You will stay at Piešťany’s top thermal resorts like the Balnea Esplanade and Thermia Palace, set amid the charming tree-lined, sculpture-filled gardens and promenades of Spa Island.
With state-of-the-art spa facilities including indoor and outdoor thermal pools, both resorts are recognised by the European Spas Association (ESPA) and offer all manner of pampering and balneology wellness therapies. Treatments usually finish in the early afternoon, allowing plenty of free time to explore Piešťany and the surrounding region.
The resorts are within walking distance to everything and thanks to constant stream of re-energised and refreshed visitors, the town has a vibrant atmosphere with plenty to see and do. There are restaurants and theatres to visit, coffee and cakes to enjoy, boutiques to shop at and regular outdoor concerts to attend, thanks to a tradition started by Beethoven, one of Piešťany’s famous visitors. The more active can play a round of golf at Piešťany’s nine-hole course, rent bikes and explore the town or even further as the majestic cities of Vienna and Budapest are less than three hours away by car. And for those who want to explore even further, the majestic cities of Vienna and Budapest are less than three hours away by car.

Just a few words about our wonderful holiday in June, 2016. What a unique tour leader. She genuinely enjoys being with people and will do her utmost to ensure you are enjoying your holiday. We were so spoilt. Excellent tour guides every day and first class accommodation. Eva is with you every day. If you enjoy having someone else do all the hard work, give it your all and you will be rewarded. Thanks dear leader, Eva.

Dear Eva. Thank you for the wonderful cruise and health spa tour we did with you in May/June. My husband and I were touched by the attention and care you gave to each member in the group. You resolve logistics and personality related issues professionally and firmly but with kindness and thoughtfulness. The hotels and sightseeing tours were well organized which gave us ample time to relax and socialize. We also enjoyed the cultural and social activities you took extra effort to organize. Everything you have done for us prior, during and after the tour is very much appreciated. We wish you another successful year taking your clients to all the wonderful places you love.
Mary Lewis OAM, Belmont Vic
What a wonderful holiday! Thank you so much – I enjoyed it immensely, largely because of your expertise, attention to detail and professionalism, and in making sure everything ran smoothly and on time. My fellow travellers were a joy to be with. I also wanted to say how much I appreciated the birthday cake you organised for me at the restaurant in Prague; it was a great thrill for me as I became an octogenarian! In fact birthdays and a wedding anniversary of other travellers were also celebrated in similar style accompanied by much hilarity. I appreciated also the gesture from the hotel, no doubt at your instigation, when champagne, a birthday card and two glasses were delivered to my room on my birthday.
Lois Mulley, Old Bar NSW
I would like to thank you for a wonderful tour, the cultural component was a highlight. Your organisational skills were obvious, everything ran like clockwork, at all times you were checking that everything was in place for a hassle free tour. At no times did you “lose you cool” every inquiry was answered with a smile. If any of my friends are interested in your type of tour, I would have no hesitation to recommend you.
John and Jeannie Peck, Gwandalan NSW
John and I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful experience of the tour. Your expertise and care for all of us was beyond exceptional. The hotels, tours, food, local knowledge, currency information and companionship was more than outstanding. Our fellow travellers were so friendly, amicable and caring.
It was a very well planned tour – relaxing although we were on the go. We appreciated we had time in each city, and not to be changing hotels every day, and time to really see the sites. The free time allowance included into the tour was great.
Eva you really went far and beyond. Your local knowledge also afforded us the very best of everything.
It was evident from all the contacts you have at the hotels, restaurants, guides how much they love and respect you and always gave their professional best, and as a result , we were the winners. We felt everyone was family.
It is really impossible to put into words our heart felt gratitude, however, it was as I said many times on tour – 1 million out of 10. Congratulations and I hope John and I will be joining another tour with you in the future. Our friends and family have not stopped hearing about you.
Jennie and Richard Cox, Bowral NSW
It felt very sad to come home after spending such a wonderful and harmonious time with everyone. Richard and I enjoyed the tour so much . It was lovely to be part of such a fun and happy group of people. I must thank you for the wonderful organization, great tour leaders, great seats at the Operas and Concert and overall consideration of our needs. We loved everywhere we went and when people say ” What was your favourite place ” … It is difficult to answer as it was all wonderful (I must admit I did LOVE the spa !!!). So many thanks Eva for a great trip and will look forward to meeting up with everyone at the dinner.

Piestany to me is the highlight of my year, the spa treatments are relieving all my arthritis pains and keep me pain free. I do not need to take medication like I use to. Also for my husband this is the most relaxing time as Eva is the most experienced Tour Leader who makes sure we have a hassle free holiday.
