The right spa makes for the right holiday

Estonian spas have been around since Russian Tsarist time. In 1813 the Kadrioru Wittenhof summer manor house spa was opened in Tallinn.

At the beginning of the 19th century spas opened in Pärnu, Haapsalu, Kuressaare, and Narva- Jõesuu as well. Today there are around 30 spas in Estonia, of which 19 are part of the Estonian Spa Association.

The word spa conveys many meanings these days, so it’s wise to familiarise yourself with what each one offers before planning your vacation. The Spa Association divides their members into three categories: 1) medical spas, 2) spa and wellness spas, and 3) medical and wellness spas together. Medical spas are licensed to provide outpatient medical care.

Travelling with your family? Many spas encourage you to bring your children. They often have areas like playrooms or playgrounds and slides, and organise activities for children. Some spas even have procedures and treatments especially for children.

There are sports and other active activities offered at all of the spas, and some offer even more. Be sure to look into this before you book. Depending on the clients, entertainment programmes vary. Though if you are interested in an exercise only programme, then an evening exploring local pub culture is not recommended.
