LEPA VIDA THALASSO SPA
At the LEPA VIDA THALASSO SPA guests are offered a special experience of traditional thalassotherapy in a unique natural environment amidst the salt pans using natural products, produced in the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park.
Thalassotherapy is the medical use of the beneficial properties of the sea and substances extracted from the sea in a preventative and remedial aim. Proper thalassotherapy can thus only be developed and carried out at the sea coast. The salt evaporation creates a special microclimate saturated with salt aerosols – a saline microclimate.
The LEPA VIDA THALASSO SPA complex is a compound of several smaller pools for brine therapy, a larger sea-water swimming pool, and three Kneipp pools with cold and hot sea-water. In the central area, there is a sunny terrace for therapies with salt-pan mud. Due to its sensitive location special attention was given to the arrangement and final appearance of the outdoor thalasso spa centre. The architectural design of the facilities is visually adapted to the geometry of the salt pans since the smaller wooden facilities are designed parallel with the lines of the salt-pan worker’s houses. All the facilities are energy efficient and built in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, with near-zero carbon footprint.
Only 50 guests can be accepted at the same time, thus creating a pleasant and relaxing environment.
