An indulgent spa day can be just what you need to rest and recuperate. Whether you’re looking for a particular treatment or just a simple day of indulgence, Elaisa Energetic Wellness will please anyone. I was very impressed with my visit! Let me tell you why…
Elaisa Energetic Wellness is located in the Hoge Kempen National Park, a beautiful place overlooking the beautiful nature, lake and mine. The whole complex is beautifully integrated in the national park respecting the natural landscape. The space is a calm oasis of white corridors. The huge windows increase the natural light and allow visitors to enjoy the natural surroundings.
As soon as I entered Elaisa Energetic Wellness I knew I was going to relax and unwind. The reception staff made me feel at ease immediately. I was given clean fluffy towels and a comfortable bathrobe… I was totally ready to explore and experience this peace of heaven.
I first explored the pools. There are several indoor and outdoor pools available. At Elaisa Energetic Wellness, oxygen water is used instead of chlorine. It was so relaxing to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi and enjoying the lake views.
After the pools, it was time to explore the saunas. There are 7 (!) different kinds of saunas. I suggest you try them all. Each is different, but they all make sure you feel reborn afterwards. From the sunset panoramic sauna to the avatar sauna which is completely devoted to nature, each is impressive. At several times, there’s even live music in the saunas. No heavy metal (can you imagine?), but sound bowls which create a relaxing atmosphere.
You can also add several experiences with your visit which makes the visit even more relaxing. I experienced the Sound Ceremony, a 50 minute relaxing journey where sounds make you feel at ease. If you are into meditation, several sections are organized. A must do is the Honey Session which is included in the admission rate. During this session my body was purified and dead skin cells were removed by a scrub. At the same time, I was pampered with a honey mask. So cool and oh so relaxing! Make sure to check out the gorgeous relaxing area as well!
No smart phones are allowed at Elaisa Energetic Wellness which is a good thing! I always have my smart phone with me but sometimes we just need to disconnect and enjoy the small things of life. And that is what Elaisa Energetic Wellness is all about. This place is both beautifully constructed and designed. It was a very relaxing day and after I left, I felt reborn. I must also highlight the very accommodating staff. I can not say enough good things about Elaisa Energetic Wellness… A must visit!
Location: Krakow – Poland
Classification: 5 star hotel

Hotel Unicus Palace is one the newest five star hotels in the heart of Krakow. You really can’t beat the location, the hotel is located on one of the most stunning places in Krakow, in the historic city center. Make sure to walk along one of Krakow’s most prestigious promenade. A must see is the famous Market Square, Europe’s largest medieval market square. It’s really impressive and only a few steps away from the hotel.
The historic building is gorgeous and is considered as a historic monument. It used to be a townhouse and is beautifully renovated. Once you enter Hotel Unicus Palace, you enter a top notch five star hotel with great interior designer elements and attention to details whether I’m writing about service or rooms.
The lobby area is beautiful and gives an excellent first impression. It felt like an ultra luxurious boutique lobby with high ceilings and white interior designer elements. Welcome staff is attentive to your entrance and departure and always willing to provide a hand or transport assistance. Our room keys were handed in seconds while they explained everything we needed to know in a very friendly and accommodating way.
Hotel Unicus Palace has 60 luxuriously appointed rooms in different categories. We stayed in a deluxe room which I liked very much. For city hotel standards, the room had a great size and I could spend a whole day in the room without leaving. No bright colors nor shoddy elements … Every room at Hotel Unicus Palace is tastefully decorated with high quality materials. I loved the bed! It felt like sleeping on a cloud… Our room had everything I’d expect from a five star hotel including high quality toiletries, a Nespresso coffee machine and a luxurious bathroom with excellent (rain)shower.
Did you know that Hotel Unicus Palace has several apartments with the same contemporary décors and features? Those apartments are perfect for families and friends when visiting beautiful Krakow!
For me, one of the key features of Hotel Unicus Palace is the SPA Zone. This is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. The spa area is located on the lower floor of the hotel and the ceilings are pretty amazing. The indoor pool is pretty large for a city hotel and water temperature was just perfect for me (not too cold, nor too hot). On top of that, there’s a traditional sauna and steam room. The whole place is immaculately clean and staff was very kind and informative. Do note that several treatments can be booked here. The gym is well equipped with all the latest technology facilities.
Another highlight of Hotel Unicus Palace is The Unique Taste restaurant. Although we didn’t have dinner there, this restaurant receives lovely reviews and comments. I must highlight the beautiful décor and high quality furniture.
After a great peaceful night, we were hungry again and couldn’t wait to explore breakfast. After our wonderful experiences at Hotel Unicus Palace, our expectations were high and I’m happy to write they were met in a every single way. The buffet style breakfast is large and offers a great selection of fresh ingredients, breads, pastries and fruit. Make sure to try the crêpes, they are delicious!!
It would be simple to say the defining factor was having the spa and fine dining restaurant available, but that would not do justice to the other elements which I found of the highest standard. To recap – the location is superb, service is unbeatable and food is outstanding. This definitely is one of my favorite picks in Krakow! Amenities at Hotel Unicus Palace truly are impeccable! I loved every single aspect of our stay!
