agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today released all new promotions in some of Hungary’s top spa resorts.
Famous for its thermal springs, Hungary is the perfect destination for travelers seeking a truly relaxing break. European travelers can head to the spas of Budapest for a weekend of total rejuvenation, while intercontinental visitors can view this beautiful city as a stopover that allows them to rest and recharge in the middle of a longer journey.
Some of Budapest’s most famous spas are also its oldest. Some predate Budapest itself, established by the Roman Empire as early as the first century in what was then called Aquincum. The bathhouses of Király and Rudas were constructed during the Ottoman Empire, while the Gellért and Széchenyi baths date back to the early twentieth century. Original architectural features of these famous baths remain, offering guests a glimpse into the city’s history as they soak in its medicinal waters.
Outside the capital, countryside wellness centers occupy sites near major thermal springs. Different spas cater for different traveler types – there are some that specialize in personal rejuvenation, some geared towards pampering couples, and some perfect for fun family trips.
The following is a shortlist of Hungary’s most popular spas, complete with agoda.com rates and promotions, valid for a short time only.
