Ongoing developments have taken place in Central Europe’s first luxury resort. Zala Springs Golf Resort in Zalacsány is already welcoming visitors on the highest-ranking golf course in the region, complete with a brasserie, a club house and three apartment houses.
According to plans, the resort will be able to cater for as many as over one thousand persons at a time, who will be the envied occupants of – in terms of scale – five hundred villas and apartments and will also soon be able to take possession of the new spa and wellness centre.
The spa area was designed by the architecture firm Archikon, under the lead of Ybl-prize winner Csaba Nagy and Károly Pólus. Earlier, the company was actively involved, among other projects, in the reconstruction of Párisi udvar in Budapest, and, also thanks to their expertness, restored to its former glory, the Olof Palme House in the capital has recently opened its gates under the name of Millenium House.
Development director András Sütő described the complex in Zalacsány as standing out from the landscape like a pagoda, surrounded by a pond populated by water lilies, giving the impression that it is hovering above the ground.
“The essence of the conception is that we have aimed at exclusivity much rather than quantity. The wellness area will be very much different from other spas in domestic hotels, as planning has been done including excellent experts, who focussed on recharging related to golf and preservation of good health”,
As an example, he mentioned the nozzles in the pool, which, by their positioning, will facilitate a real regeneration of the muscles, and not just give a nice experience. On top of this, the sauna will also be authentic, as a Finnish specialist helped them dream it up and not only will it convey the atmosphere
typical of the northern saunas, but it will also have to be used as one.
“In the planning stage, much attention was dedicated to balneological issues; balneology is the science that studies medicinal springs and their therapeutic applications and effects in spas. The physical features of water, such as temperature, pressure, flow, buoyant force and their impact on the organism of the bathers were closely studied”, he said.
Mr Sütő also added, that, depending on the weather, visitors will be able to bathe both in open air and in indoor pools, and that the spa will offer an excellent opportunity to lovers of both active and passive recreation.
Guests will have the opportunity to choose to their heart’s content from the light meals and healthy drinks offered in the bar as part of the comprehensive health-aware philosophy of the spa complex.
Work on the unique wellness building in Zala Springs Golf Resort has already started. Visitors to the centre will be pampered by high quality services, in places like the authentic Finnish sauna. The building will be surrounded by a pond, thus giving the impression of hovering above the water.
