Slovakia - Aquaparks See all
Slovakia, Prešov region
AquaCity Poprad is pioneering the way forward in green tourism, by providing guests with the unique combination of affordable, green luxury. Within less than five years, AquaCity has become known throughout the world. Since it opened, it has welcomed over 2 million customers. At AquaCity the water is drawn from natural geothermal subterranean lakes and piped to AquaCity at around 49 degrees C. Heated to between 30 and 38 degrees C, the pools are lined with stainless steel, to minimise the use of chlorine, and sanitised using U/V treatment, that is kind to the eyes, kind to the skin.
Imagine swimming in delightfully warm, naturally heated geothermal water, the towering, snow-capped High Tatras Mountains in the background, your breath turning to steam in the frosty, ice-cold air? At AquaCity, because the pools are naturally heated to between 30 and 38 degrees C it is possible to swim outside, even right throughout the winter.
What makes AquaCity so unique is that it uses freely available natural energy to heat and power its hotels, waterpark, spa, restaurant, bars, fitness and conference centres, saving money by using green energy, at the same time as conserving the environment. Truly affordable, green luxury.
BLUE SAPPHIRE POOL CENTRE – The world`s first solar powered pools. Here in the impressive glass, steel and pine construction of the Blue Sapphire Centre you`ll find a series of circular pools, each one lit with contrasting and varying chromotherapy effects, each one offering different massage jets and techniques, each one filled with naturally heated, deliciously warm geothermal water.
BLUE SAPPHIRE`S NIGHTLY LASER SHOW – While by day the pools are the perfect place to relax, while kids enjoy the ball park and activity center on the mezzanine floor above, each evening the Blue Sapphire Centre comes to life, to the beat of music and the excitement of AquaCity`s unique 3D holographic laser show.
With a mix of classical and contemporary surroundings, these sophisticated pool areas provide a relaxing and peaceful place to swim or meet up with friends, with sun loungers around the pools and a tranquil and romantic ambience.
BLUE DIAMOND POOLS – subtly lit with a romantic ambience and a swim up bar. Located in the main water park, a short walk from the changing rooms, the Blue Diamond pools are quieter than the outdoor pools and particularly pleasant for adults meeting up for relaxation or a drink. The two subtly lit indoor Blue Diamond pools are perfect for a leisurely swim, or a drink at one of the bars, including the swim-up, stainless steel pool bar where colourful cocktails are freshly made, or guests can sip a local sparkling wine, beer or soft drink.
Vital World Spa
Guests love beautifully appointed Vital World Spa, lined with tiny iridescent tiles, atmospheric lighting and soft music, designed to appeal to every sense by creating a relaxing and tranquil environment.
Just a few steps from the changing areas of the water park, Vital World is integral to the water park. It is easy to find, yet provides a peaceful retreat from the pools, where adults can relax and rejuvenate. If you`re a guest in one of hotels, you`ll enjoy complimentary entry to the Vital World Spa, with its salt, menthol, steam and herb inhalation rooms, sauna, permanent snow cave, solarium, jacuzzi and tepidarium, while day visitors can select a spa-inclusive package for unlimited use of the facilities.
For guests who like to keep in shape, we have fitness areas, with regular fitness classes for you to take part in and personal trainers to help you with your training regime, and fabulous indoor and outdoor geothermal pools, including our 50m Olympic sized indoor pool.
Comfortable bar areas are located throughout AquaCity, for a late night cocktail in subtly lit surroundings, or a refreshing drink after an exhilarating swim. In the pool areas you and your family can come straight from the water, into waterpark cafe to refuel on salads and heartier meals, chips and local dishes, ready to head back to the pools straight afterwards.
And fabulous restaurant offers buffet style breakfast and dinner, included for hotel guests, a la carte lunches such as pastas, salads and tasty fish or steaks, and an a la carte menu for dinner guests, inspired by local cuisine and global tastes. Wines are selected from the best Slovak vineyards, with some classic favourites to give you a comprehensive choice of reds, whites and rose.
