Recently, it has become much more difficult for tourists to choose a destination for a quality spa holiday. Due to sanctions restrictions, some foreign resorts have become unavailable. Where to relax at the thermal springs in 2023 and how to choose a suitable resort?
Fortunately, Russia has its own thermal springs. There are especially many of them in the Krasnodar Territory, in particular, in the village of Mostovskaya. It is worth noting that the level of service in many local hotels and resort complexes is not inferior to foreign.
What to consider when choosing thermal springs?
The composition of thermal water differs depending on which rocks and layers the water passed through on its way to the surface. The concentration of useful trace elements in it can also be different. If you have no doctor’s contraindications and your main goal is relaxation and spa treatments, the composition of the water may not be so important. But if you have contraindications or vice versa, you want to solve specific problems, for example, of a dermatological nature, you should choose a thermal spring taking into account these factors.
There is another point – the composition of water often changes some of its properties. For example, water rich in hydrogen sulfide has a specific smell and color. If you are confused by such nuances, it is better to know in advance about the properties of water and choose sources with a neutral color and smell of water.
Number of pools
If you are going on vacation with children, especially young ones, it is worth finding out in advance whether there is a children’s pool in the complex or hotel.
The more pools with different depths and temperatures – the better, so you will definitely be able to find a pool in which you will be comfortable.
Another point is where the pools are located, outdoors or right in the building. Each option has its advantages, however, if the pool is located indoors, it will be more comfortable if you rest in the cold season or vice versa, in the summer heat. The absence of temperature contrasts will reduce the potential risk of getting sick or overheating in the sun.
Thermal springs can be natural and not refined, and to rest on them, you need to stay somewhere in the nearest hotel, and then get there and back. Of course, this is not very convenient, given that after taking thermal baths, it is recommended not to strain yourself but to spend some time at rest.
Resort complexes and hotels directly at hot springs are much more preferable in this regard. So you get all the service in one place: accommodation, meals, spa treatments and additional services that a resort or hotel can offer.
Choose a quality vacation at the thermal springs to get the maximum benefit from the rest.
