Slovenia spa review: Terme & Wellness Centre, Portoroz
One of the biggest spa and wellness centres in Europe, covering more than 10,000 m2, the LifeClass Terme & Wellness Centre in Portoroz on the Adriatic coast is a sensational destination for anyone who loves spas. Rarely, for a coastal spa, it also features seawater pools for the ultimate luxury.
No Slovenia holiday would be complete without a dip in its jewel-like thermal pools, extensive massage and treatment centres, with an incredible range of spa experiences available, from Ayurvedic to Thai, Thalassotherapy to Turkish baths and steam rooms.
I tried an Ayurvedic massage experience here which was out of this world, and my first experience of this culture’s spa treatments. My masseur selected oils and recommended herbal teas for afterwards according to my likely dosha or body type. Ayurvedic therapists focus on clearing the energy channels in the body, moving and dislodging toxins, and balancing the chakras, performed here in original and exquisite Indian surroundings, administered by experts from southern India.
This is truly the largest spa centre I have ever experienced and would keep all members of your party happy with its unlimited treatment choices as far as Slovenia’s spas go. More…

Positive effects of seawater
Seawater not only provides pleasant refreshment but also affects the body in numerous positive ways through its mechanical characteristics, temperature and chemical characteristics. An additional positive effect is provided by the reflection of sunrays, especially the ultraviolet ones. Due to its chemical composition and temperature value seawater is mainly used in the summer for bathing, while in winter we can heat it up to a certain temperature and use it to fill the indoor pools and for its balneological properties.
