“Luxurious sauna in the woods near Cologne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Very stylish major sauna complex in Arabian/North African/Spanish style. Beautiful design with plenty of facilities inside and outside. Exceptionally good restaurant (given the standard in wellness establishements). We came on Rosenmontag (Carneval's Monday), and had to wait for 75 minutes (!) before we could enter. I had tried to reserve in advance, but this had not been possible. Apart from this obvious lack of service, all other service was good. Very friendly staff. The remote location requires visitors to come by car (no public transport available).

“Live Like the Kings and Queens of Mesopotamia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

The Mediterana Spa is very special and will make you feel exceptionally spoiled. My husband and I just spent two full days in the spa and had fun exploring, relaxing, and enjoying ourselves :) The spa is so large that we found more treasures on the second day and look forward to returning later in the spring.The architecture and design from Spanish to Morrocan influences are very inspirational. We had a tasty lunch at the Casablanca and an excellent dinner at Villa Verde. My only dissapointment was the massage. We stayed at the Romantic Maragold Hotel (excellent dinner) and ate at the Italian restuarant, Enoteca (good, but over-rated) in the Castle nearby.

“great spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We visited a lot of spa's. This is certainly the nicest one!
The sauna's were great and nicely made with attention for lots of details.
Also a lot of restplaces. So, it's very quiet!
The 'four elements-sauna' is really wonderfull.
Food was great (certainly when you compare it with other saunaresorts).
The only thing we missed were some 'special waterplaces' lika a caldarium, aromated baths.
We only visited the naked part. A part is only for bathing clothes.
Some people run around in bathing clothes in the naked area. Maybe the staff can work out a strict policy!
We hope we can visit this place again next year ...

“Oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

The best place to relax I've been to so far. I make sure to pay them a visit every time I am in the area. The best thing to do is to go for a whole day, and be able to nap on the water beds after enjoying the many different saunas and swimming possibilities.
A very strict no-cell phone policy combined with the wonderful decor truly allows the stressed mind to forget about the everyday life. Everything you purchase or consume in the Spa is charged to your chip, so you don't have to worry about your wallet either. Maybe only a little bit when paying for the food, cause the restaurant and bars are rather expensive. But well, it really is worth it. If you are considering any massage or treatment you should reserve it a few days in advance to make sure that they are not fully booked. And - of course- it's always better to go during the week as it's less crowded.
