    My first visit at Therme has been an amazing experience! Most worthy to mention is the special experience you get by choosing the Elysium deal, and the help to put together the perfect day. Simona in the Elysium reception helped me put together an amazing schedule with both saunas, mineral pools, massage treatment, and made it clear when to do what. Special thanks to Simona and Anna (brilliant massage!). And Mikhail for giving me a fantastic massage as well. In total I came two days, for working everything through. It has been brilliant! Special thanks to you guys for takling good Care of me, and welcoming me on day two the way you did 🙏🏼

    Amazing place with rude staff
    Amazing spa with great facilities. The water park was great fun, the pools were gorgeous. The staff we quite rude. We were told that there were no forks in the restaurant after ordering and paying for food. The staff member was rude about this. There were so many dirty plates full of cutlery around the restaurant, I took two forks and asked the staff member to wash them. The staff on the rides were also rude. All in all lovely place but staff need a lot of training

    Nice place with slow service
    Very nice place to go on a hot day. Lots to do with all the spa's and water slides. Terrible orginisted in terms of the lines for the water slides and the resturant "International cuisine" in particular. The set-up and waiting time for both where rediculus... Dont pay a 3 hour or 4,5 hour ticket, cause the wait for food is 1 hour in it self... When it comes to service and logistics - 1 start Other than that it is a fine experience with ok prices, and would still recommend.

    Great place for relaxation
    Outstanding place to relax and refresh. Variety of swimming pools, bars, and saunas. Prices are more than affordable. There are numerous pool and sauna activities for your health and well-being. Mihail is a great entertainer that really gives his all to provide an amazing experience for all customers.

    One of the greatest thermal experience
    I liked the place a lot. I was the first going and we loved it. The place is clean. Lockers are clean. Water is clean. We visited all the areas. We loved the pools and the inpool bars. We had no problems with the stuff. They were really nice with us. We loved the towel entertainment in the spa area (Elysium). There are indeed a lot of rules but I find them vital to ensure that the place runs smoothly. There are a lot of safety rules but they help to maintain the place safe and clean. The food and drinks prices are not very high as some people state. I consider the prices to be ok considering it's a touristic area. There are lots of restaurants in Bucharest with higher prices. We had no problems with having to buy towels or flip flips. We brought our own, clean ones and no one had anything to say. You need to read the instructions on the site with attention before getting mad at the stuff. They are only following the rules of the complex. We would definitely return to Therme.

    Overpriced
    A very beautiful location. The water in the pools is warm and clean. In the Galaxy area there are water slides, a wave pool, so children can have fun too. In The Palm area, theoretically, children under 14 are not allowed, but I saw many couples with 1-3 year old children in the pools. Another positive aspect is the natural, rich exotic vegetation (orchids, palm trees, banana trees, dates and other varieties). During the summer, the outdoor section "The sands of Therme" also operates, a lot of sunbeds placed on the sand as well as on the grass, near a rather small swimming pool. A somewhat inept rule: you are not allowed to enter the pool with your phone, assuming you want to take a selfie. I don't see who and why this thing would bother, given that many people are walking around the pools with the same kind of cocktail glasses. In addition, you are not allowed to leave the phone on the edge of the pool, as I tried with the outside one, in the conditions where there were only about 4 other people inside. Strange... There are a few restaurants and pool bars, but the prices are exaggerated. If I could understand a higher price for a cocktail, I don't understand very high prices for a simple still bottled water or a draft beer. A bit too crowded for my taste, although the website showed a load of 50% of capacity. Bring your own flip-flops because otherwise you will have to buy some from them.

    Amazing place. Bad policy
    Amazing thermae, beautiful, clean, well maintained, new. Bigger and nicer of the famous one in Budapest. The reason of the 3 stars is that they don't tell you before that you cannot come in with your own flipflop, they ask you to buy on the spot, very overpriced and low quality ones. If I wasn't with friends, I would ask the money back and leave. I don't mind about the money, I spent way more inside on food and other things, is the principle, you tell me before that I should come with shoes and change with my own ones inside. Looked like a little scam to charge you more money. Cheap and non necessary. That was the only bad note, reason why instead of 5 stars and perfect experience. They don't deserve more then 3

    Amazing! Flipflop complainers need to read!
    Amazing. People that are complaining about flipflops should start and read emails or the site. When you get tickets online, you get a very good packing list which states that you need to bring flipflops that have not been worn outside yet. On the site it is stated as well... PEOPLE NEED TO READ. Apart from that, a beautiful place, galaxy is quite busy but fun slides. There is a big problem all the way on the top at the slides because all slides begin there and it is just one big congestion. The palm is amazing, it is simply relaxing!

    Great day activity
    We had a great experience at therme. The saunas and pools they have available are well maintained and it's nice they tell you the benefits/temperature and suggested time for each. You can get drinks at the pool bar as well. Everything was reasonably priced too!

    I’m glad I experienced it, but I wasn’t impressed
    The ambiance was okay. It was very crowded and I found the layout confusing with the lockers and changing rooms. It wasn’t a terrible experience, it was just a bit overwhelming. If you’re into soaking in jacuzzis with 10 + people and thermal pools with 200+ it’s your gig.

Booked a full day at Elysium in order to also book a massage, which you can only do on location. When we got there, 1st free slot was after 4h and 1st couples massage after 6h. So no massage.
Apart from this, it's extremely crowded even in Elysium area. Saunas made for 20 persons are filled with double that if there's a ritual in progress. Line to go to the small pool bar. No seats available at all.
We did not use the big Palm pool, too full. And we only looked at Galaxy through the entrance, you could barely fit an extra person in. If you go late evening, early morning or week-days perhaps it's a bit better but I would not count on it.
Ticket only includes access, all else is extra. By adding slippers towels a frugal meal and 2 drinks to the entry fee, we paid 700 lei and spent 3h there.
In my personal opinion, it's not worth it.

Each time I go to Therme, something upsets me. This time it was the bad organization from the Galaxy restaurant. The restaurant is extremely small for the large crowd that fits into Galaxy zone- the family zone. We had to wait 30 minutes to order a portion of pasta that cooked in 6'. The philipino servant was very slowwww and so overwhelmed. She served 7 people in 30 minutes!
Also , there was a bad smell of burned oil in the entire restaurant. I was expecting better foid quality, but they offer a lot of unhealthy food, although, being a restaurant for the family area, many children eat there.
So, if you like queues, you will find them here: queue at the entrance, queue at the restaurant, queue at the slides...
Weekends are horrible there: so crowded, that you leave with a headache!

I really enjoyed my time at the spa. I thought I might get a bit bored after a few hours but the day went really quickly and I definitely could have spent more time there! We spent the majority of the day trying out the different pools and saunas but they also do aerobics which was fun!
I’d definitely recommend going to the Thai restaurant at the top as it was so quiet in relation to the rest of the place and the food was amazing!
We’d already paid to hire a robe but they give you a robe to sit and eat in the restaurant so I wouldn’t bother hiring a robe in the future to save a few pennies!
I’d definitely go back as it was such a lovely chilled day, followed by a lovely sunset.
P.S. Remember your flip flops!

The facilities here are great,the highlight for me being the amazing water slides (especially the one that ends in a half pipe!). Unfortunately, the slide area was massively understaffed when we were there, leaving one overworked lifeguard desperately trying to maintain order at the top of 3 (or possibly 4) slides with large, excitable queues of children and adults. He did a valiant job, but it was simply too much work for one person. In most similar water parks you would see a minimum of one lifeguard at the top of each slide on a busy day, and with good reason. Better signage to inform guests about which slides can be used with double rings and which cannot would have eased the chaos in the queues also. The spa area was excellent, with a great variety of saunas and a plunge pool to die for (with waterfalls!), however I was prevented from really enjoying it by the extortionate price of drinking water. You'd have to be mad to use saunas without staying properly hydrated, however the only water available was 500ml plastic bottles for 7.9RON (more than €1.50!) a pop. How they do not have water fountains like every other half decent gym or spa in the world is beyond me. Even if you don't mind the price, all that disposable plastic is unacceptable.

I was at a busy conference and needed a morning off, this was beyond all my expectations. You can easily come here from Bucharest center by public transport, with a special bus once an hour or switching two busses, which is extremely easy and costs almost nothing.
The place is beautiful, clean, busy but not crowded. Smooth experience buying ticket on site and buying drinks and food inside. Very modern, clean, great for adults and small ones.
Galaxy is family area, Palma is a calmer area where very small kids can come. It's so big I didn't need to pay for more.
October in Bucharest is wonderful, warm but not too hot, great time for outside pools as well.
Lots of neat steamrooms, hot tubs.
The building has lots of light, high wooden ceiling and relaxing background music. None of that 90s retro swimming pool vibe.
Swim up bars are awesome, everyone chill and friendly, they also have proper espresso machines and all drinks have non alcohol option.
Obligatory flipflops are an excellent hygiene addition.
If you want to go back, you can also just walk to highway stop, it's 12 minutes by foot, bolt/uber 17euro to Bucharest center.
I will definitely come again with family.

Everything looks nice: there’s marble everywhere, and trees, and pools with crystal clear water, and zen-looking mud-packing members of staff. However, and I somewhat feel bad for saying this, the staff is often rude and unfriendly. You need to be extra careful with what you’re doing because you’re probably breaking a rule of some sort and you might get scolded by a staff member, who have very inelegant ways of doing that. No talking there, no sitting without a towel, no phones, no taking pictures in the pools unless you are a famous looking person, which means you can even get interviewed in the big pools without anyone telling you anything. I guess it’s all about who you are.
We went there on a Thursday and we paid a surcharge because it was a holiday. When I asked the young lady at the counter what holiday it was she said “it’s just like that, it’s a holiday here in Romania.” And that was the end of it.
The whole thing is a perfect metaphor for what post-communist Bucharest (and Romania as a country) is: stunning views, all beautiful on the outside, but full of rancor and repressed feelings on the inside. Among the marble walls and floors you might see an open door behind which cleaning ladies are arguing, and in the cacophony of sounds of children playing in the Galaxy you might hear a “bucureștean” (as people from Bucharest are called) hollering at a staff member because of something their kids did or didn’t do.
I’m sure other people find it wonderful, but I didn’t feel at peace once I was inside.

P.S. it takes 45 minutes to get there from the city center NOT 10.

Absolute rip off!!!!! They tell you you HAVE TO purchase flipflops or they refuse you entry even when you are wearing flipflops! Yet when you get in there, some people have no sandals and others are wearing their own! Slides look exciting but theu are slow and boring and queues are stupidly long, they make it look amazing online, but it's not. Staff are rude, people queue jumping and staff do nothing about it! You pay for 3 hrs but be aware you have to be OUT within 3 hours not out of the pool, they charged extra for us being half an hour over time because we had to shower and get changed. I will not be returning and advise anyone else to visit all of the outdoor waterparks, we have visited 4 different one's all better value for money, less busy, better food and you can stay all day.

I always come back to Therme and it always surprises me. I recommend to visit Therme during week days, because during the weekend it can be very crowded. I enjoy coming to all the three zones. Elysium has a variety of spa rituals, from aufguss experiences to skincare ones. In my last visit, I enjoyed two spa rituals: one breathing session and one aufguss session mixed with skincare routine. Both of them were held by Andrei. He is such an amazing and passionate guy. He was great during both sessions and he answered to all of our questions. All the food and drinks that we tried were great.

This would never work in the UK. H and S would ban the booze! Clean, organised, different. Hollywood Sauna was showing David Attenborough on chin strapped penguins. It worked.
I didn’t pay so cannot comment on vfm but it could have been very expensive and still worth it.

A very large relaxation center. It has an area with 6 saunas, massage, restaurant and small pools with beneficial water. An area with several pools, including an outdoor pool and pool bar. In addition, there is another restaurant with very good food and the price is good. And there is another area with slides, but it is full of children and there is not much space because of the slides. I recommend you take all 3 and all day because it is only 150 lei / person. I recommend this relaxation center ☑️
