It was my first time to stay in a thermal spa in Belgium, as well as a naturist one. Londerzeel is a small village. The spa looked like an industrial space from outside but really impressive inside. Modern, comfortable, clean with large space. They have all sorts of interesting facilities, sauna in all sorts of temperature, hot and cold pools, indoor and outdoor pools, steam room, thunder rain room, herbal room, with all sorts of special daily programs. I did not know the rules. So I asked the front desk about spa etiquette. A gentleman took his time to give me a grand tour of the entire facilities. It turned out changing room coed. Bathing suits are not allowed. I was told to wear nothing but bath robe in order to enter the restaurant. That was the shock of life. I was told no need to carry key around, dropping it off at the front desk. They just charge to my room number. The service was wonderful. People were very patient with me. One thing was a bit inconvenient for me as the menu as well as spa menu are all in French or Dutch. So I had to guess. Sometimes I opened the wrong door as I could not really read the signs. Life is an adventure. So I had two days of full doze of adventure. I really enjoyed all of the facilities, especially two sauna room and the outdoor heated pool. My hotel room was very comfortable and well furnished. You do need a car here. There was only one taxi driver in Londerzeel. 15 minutes ride cost €50. I should rent a car but my driving skill is not great by living in London and Manhattan. Cell phone is not allowed. So no photos for obvious reason. It is nice to cut off from the digital world. The spa is totally packed, as it is wonderful!

This is a long review of the spa only, not the hotel and restaurant, but it is broken into sections for easy reference. “Pros” and "Cons" are at the bottom.

Overview: Thermen Londerzeel is a large thermal spa near Brussels. It is a coed facility, and naked (no bathing suits allowed). The facility was clean and well-kept, and almost everything was operating normally. The few spa services we tried were very good and better than similar spas like Thermae Boetfort. Entry prices are comparable to all of the other spas within a 100km. Thermen Londerzeel is part of a small chain, and we have also visited Thermen Dilbeek (one of the other two spas). We enjoyed the visit to Thermen Londerzeel, but we preferred Thermen Dilbeek even though it is slightly smaller.

Parking: Parking is very large. There are paved and unpaved parking spots.

Checking In: The thermal spa facilities open at 1100. The staff told us we could arrive as early as 1000 because we has spa services scheduled, allowing us time to change, shower, and use some of the spa facilities (though not everything is ready / working before 1100). Check-in was fast and efficient. You can rent towels, bathrobes, and shower shoes if you need them. Unlike other spas, you are given a key, but not a bracelet. The key opens your locker, and the number allows you to be billed in the restaurant and bar. You leave the key at the restaurant and collect it at the end of your visit.

Locker Room: The locker room is co-ed. There are no private changing areas. Thermen Londerzeel fixes crowding by having multiple locker rooms, each with twenty lockers in them, so it’s unlikely there will be more than 2-4 people in each locker room at a time. There was only one bench to sit on, but the locker room was spacious and clean. Each locker could hold coats, clothes, and shoes for two people. There are hair dryers and mirrors near the lobby / beauty center entrance.

The Massage: Couples are treated in the same room. We didn't get a choice of therapists, but we also didn't ask (they were both women). The hot stone massage was excellent. The therapists were friendly and spoke enough English to do their jobs well, and asked for feedback. Customer service was 10 out of 10. The massage was excellent and the therapists gave a strong massage, also 10 out of 10.

The Facility: The building is large, and there are multiple lounge rooms as well as sitting areas, reading tables, and lounge chairs near the pools. If you just want to hang out and relax or read a book, you certainly can.

The Saunas: There are plenty of hooks for your towel and bathrobe near every sauna, which is convenient. Some men and women, young and old, were naked the whole time. Others wore robes or remained wrapped in towels. There are multiple sets of showers inside the facility and a couple showers outside. Cold showers are marked with a blue symbol, hot marked with red. There is also main set of showers directly before entered the spa area that include soap.

All of the saunas are mostly "dry" / low humidity. They are split between indoors and outdoors and have various themes. You are expected to remove your sandals and sit or lay on your towel. No bare skin on the wood. The steam bath is technically not considered a sauna and completely nude (no towel or sandals), and it is impossible to see where you are walking inside, so be careful. The aquarium sauna is particularly good, with a nice temperature, a large aquarium filled with tropical fish and jellyfish, and soft music playing. The Alps sauna is interesting and includes a “chalet” built inside an artificial ice cave. The ice cave is kept at freezing temperatures so you can go from the sauna to freezing air, though there is no ice or snow to rub on your skin. The panorama sauna look down on the main cold pool of the facility, and it’s not really a view. Of note, they do have a Finnish-style sauna where you can pour water on the rocks yourself. The Marco Polo Sauna is very large and used for aufguss sessions, though the sauna still felt crowded. The infrared saunas are large and can hold six people / couples, though because they were open to the main room, you never felt warm.

The Pools / Waters: Outdoors, there are three plunge barrels with cold water near the Finnish / Bakoven Sauna. The pool is very large and almost as warm as the Jacuzzi. The pool is only outside, though you can enter the pool via steps from inside the building. There is a natural plunge pool near one of the outside saunas, but there did not appear to be an outside hot tub / Jacuzzi. There was something covered with a tarp, but we could not tell what it was. Inside is a large Jacuzzi that can accommodate 20-30 people, at least. The air bubbles rise through the seats but not on your feet. While we were visiting, half of the Jacuzzi was not working, and it was unclear if this was intentional (maybe some people don’t like bubbles?). As a result, the bubble side of the Jacuzzi became crowded later in the day. The cold pool is large and beautifully designed, and next to it were two contrasts baths (hot and cold). There is a warm foot bath just beneath the panorama sauna that many people did not notice until someone started using it.

Pros:
• The massage service is excellent.
• Restaurant and bar service was fast.
* There is lounge area drink service.
* The outdoor pool was large and pleasantly warm.
• Check-in and check-out was fast and friendly
• Staff spoke primarily Dutch, and all signs and menus were in Dutch, but they were able to communicate in English as well.

Cons:
• No water fountains or water dispensers.
• The aufguss schedule was limited and didn’t start until 1400.
• No outside Jacuzzi.
* The water sprays in the steam bath were not spraying well, only dripping down the walls.
* No inside heated pool.

Dear, thank you again for this extensive review. We're pleased to read that you also enjoyed Thermen Londerzeel, after visiting our Dilbeek facility. We have plans for a second jacuzzi in teh garden. The right part of the inner jacuzzi has no bubbles indeed (for those who enjoy just relaxing in hot water). The spraying system in tje hammam has been checked. We'll pass the kind words to the entire staff and hope to welcome you again in one of our facilities.

We've been a customer at Thermen Londerzeel for some years now and would recommend it to everyone who's looking for a nice relaxing day out. It's a big spa so even on busy days it doesn't really feel crowded. Recently they added two new sauna's which makes a total of 7 now if I'm not mistaken. Some of the sauna's like the alp sauna (you get to walk through a room with an icy mountain) or the aquarium sauna (with a big aquarium with colourful fish and even some awesome jellyfish) are simply beautiful. Four or five times a day they organize a free-for-all Mushara session in one of the sauna's. During these sessions the heat in the sauna is radically increased and someone is waving a towel in the air creating heat waves. It's a must if you've never done this before. On top of the sauna's they have an infrared room, a steambath, an outdoor heated pool, an indoor pool, walk-in baths hot and cold, a big jacuzzi, a relax room and of course treatment facilities. The food is not cheap but you'll get big portions and the quality is high. I'd say it's good value for the money. The have a very big outdoor area both for eating and/or drinking or for relaxing. There's a lot of staff working at Thermen Londerzeel, all of them are very friendly and welcoming.

Staff in the spa is very friendly. There is a good choice of sauna and the whole facility is spacious and very clean. The restaurant is excellent and both food and wine are affordable.
The Spa is liaised to the Wellness center in Rijmenan and although Londerzeel is nice, I am preferring Rijmenam.

I was recommended by a friend to visit this facility, so my expectations were quite high. For starters the building out side looks more like an industrial complex then a wellness. Then inside the space is generous but very dated. The inside pool is very spacious but quite disturbing with the fried food smells coming from the restaurant. The big jacuzzi is very nice, but unfortunately only half of it was working, so it got cramped very fast. Maybe it was bad luck, but some events during our stay were also very disappointing, like in the rainforest sauna, where all of the sudden one could hear the workers chatting on the other side of the wall, as well a truck engine, from which a little bit lately one could smell burned gas or some very nasty petroleum. After that we were surprised by construction/maintenance workers, walking up and down the main hall, and a few minutes after the sound of heavy machinery working, later on while trying to enjoy another of the out side saunas, one of the workers enters with measuring tools and takes is measurements... very random situation and not the best way to relax.
The restaurant was very basic and offered very little of heathy food, besides raw veggies with mayo based sauces.
Another very disturbing aspect, not directly related to the place, were some of its costumers, I guess they were habitual costumers since some really acted like they were the owners of the place, speaking very loudly in the saunas, even bringing their own essential oils to aromatise the sauna and cutting the cues for the group sessions.
Not all was bad , in this visit, both of the outside external saunas were very nice.
The biggest surprise was when I was asked about my experience, and I honestly exposed the above, there was not even a apology.

Very very disappointing

Dear Paulo, thank you for your comments. My appologies if you had a lesser first experience. We've had some urgent works to be done over the last days, but everything is back in order now. The jacuzzi has one part with bubbles, the other part hasn't on demand of our clients in the past. But the entire jacuzzi will be renewed this year. About the restaurant being basic, I don't quite follow: we offer salads, fish and meat dishes, pastas, wok, sandwiches and different suggestions. There are several warm veggie dishes on the menu, besides the salads... I'll ask my colleagues to pay more attention to our clients behaviour; own essantial oils are only allowed in the 'Bakoven'sauna. When you read all comments on Tripadvisor and Booking.com, you'll see that we have a very high rating, so I hope you'll understand that all this was very exceptional. I hope that you'll visit us again some day so we can convince you of our high standards. Best regards.

A nice place to relax!

Positive points:
- Nice kitchen, good food and drinks
- Very good hot stone massage
- Reduction (free entrance) for your birthday
- Friendly staff and personnel

Negative points:
- The parking place outside is very dirty when it rains. It should be much better and nicer when this would be a hard underground.
- Sometimes a bit too crowded (especially in the newest saunas which are quite
- Some parts of the building are on the decline. For example in the swimming pool, a lot of tiles are loose or off.

Having visited a few Thermae/Thermen/Termy in Europe, we were certainly not disappointed with our 2 night stay at Thermen Londerzeel, upon arriving Angelique greeted us and explained how the Thermen worked, our rooms were very large and well appointed with quality fittings including large bath, shower and quality bathroom amenities, the room was the standard and quality found in a luxury city hotel, & with quality bed linen. The Thermen itself was very well appointed with a vast range of differing saunas and steam rooms and regular infusion sessions throughout the day/evening, there was an indoor pool as well as a large outdoor pool. The gardens were very well maintained with ample lounge chairs and outside eating areas for the restaurant onsite. The menu offered was more than sufficient for our 2 night stay, with quality and well presented foods, the staff were always courteous (especially Amanda - breakfast staff member) whom went out of her way to assist us. We enjoyed having 2 days lounging around in our bathrobes, and attending the many opgiet sessions. All the staff especially Angelique, Amanda & Jean-Michel were all fantastic with our party of 4, we did not want to leave Londerzeel. Well done and thank you team Londerzeel we will be back.

Every aspect of this hotel and spa is 5 star. We visited Belgium for 5 days and decided to use Thermen Londerzeel as our place to stay (travelled from Canada), it was perfectly located in the middle of the 4 major cities we wanted to visit (Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels & Ghent). Breakfast in the morning is the perfect assortment of coffee, juice, mimosas, bacon, eggs, fruit, yogurt & Pastries. The hotel rooms are large and very well kept, there are only 10 rooms so book well in advance to ensure you get your dates. The Thermen spa has a great assortment of sauna's, hot tub, steam room, hot and cold pool. There are some pouring sessions in the sauna, if you have never tried this it is a must!!!! Staff was all very friendly and even though we do not speak Dutch it was never an issue, they were all more than happy to help us and translate. They did not have English menu's at the time as they were being redone but the staff was very helpful so it didn't really matter. If you are traveling through Belgium and are looking for a home base this is the one, we rented a car and had free parking at the hotel, thank you Thermen Londerzeel for making our stay a memorable one!!! Stayed April 27- May 3 2019.

Special thanks to Hannes who was always looking out for me, made I sure I had everything I need. I couldnt imagine this place without these people. There is a big variety of Saunas and it is very cozy and relaxing and its clean! The restaurant is good and the rooms are very nice.
