I spend there enjoyable spa week my girfriends. Balnea Grand is the part of hotel’s complex Balnea Grand Splendid, which is closed by Balnea centre in the northern part of Spa Island. It was a little bit awkward for us 27 years old to be in a place with people aged between 40 and 80, we really couldnt interact with other people. The only young person we met was a trainer (quite handsome) from fitness centre. The gym is ok, but i do not recommend yoga classes. The yoga master didn't know what yoga was about (i personally don't think she was a master at all). Aged about 70 years old she didn't do any asana right and she was using some pics printed from internet to show how to do an asana without any ephasis on right positioning or breathing. I was doing yoga myself in my hotel room. There is little English spoken, but we spoke mixture of Polish and Russian so the communication wasn’t bad, it was funny sometimes. Anyway our target was to get some relaxing time and spend time together. It certainly was low stress, restful and enjoyable stay. There was good hotel service , cleaning every day, they would change towels and bath robes when asked, beds and bed linnen very comfortable and quite good food. A room itself wasn't very nice, old soviet furniture and horrible smell in the toilet (probably from the pipes) but it was clean and spacious with a nice view from a balcony. The air was very good, I had maybe short nights but very quality sleep there. The negative thing was that some of the treatments were so early we couldnt get enough sleep on our vacation and there were time restrictions in a hotel restaurant to get your meal. The price however was reasonable, a 7 days relaxation stay including half board and 2 treatments per day was at 59 EUR per day. We had drinks almost every night and dinner in a hotel restaurant, took some extra treatments and we didn’t spend a lot. The procedures there are really great. Very nice park and garden to take relaxing strolls. But I have to warn those who feel uncomfortable with nudity, because most of the treatments and baths require to wear your birthday suit and baths you take with other people in a pool. One of the worst experiences I had was when i was massaging by a man, I felt his penis, I’m pretty sure he had an erection. My mom had the same masseuse and she confirms it. It was very unpleasant experience and my relaxing massage wasn’t relaxing at all. Always ask for a woman masseuse. The stuff was nice but not very helpful, and the receptionist didn’t know what was going on. When asked a question she explained everything wrong. But all in all it was a nice short budget break with my friends, we enjoyed staying there, maybe will go back to Piestany one day.
