Baths are among the most important tourist attractions in Budapest, and the recently opened Mandala Bath is not an exception: it offers a special experience that is both physical and spiritual, like the so-called “Dead Sea floating.” Turizmusonline.hu gathered the most important services the esoteric bath provides.
There was a belief in Ancient Egypt that the souls lost their freedom when they were tied to a physical form during birth, but this freedom can be restored temporarily in the water. Mandala Spa Budapest follows this concept. It is the first bath in Hungary that offers its visitors deep relaxation treatments in its five different pools.
The newly opened bath serves as an extension to Mandala Day Spa, which has been one of the greatest spiritual-themed spas of Hungary for 15 years.
This is the first bath in Hungary that offers special water treatments to renew both body and mind, besides the traditional massages. The greatest attraction of the spa is the Dead Sea floating, which involves a 35 degrees Celsius saltwater pool.
The procedure begins with spinning the Tibetan prayer wheel: this helps excluding the outer world and concentrate on the spiritual travel, letting the positive energy of OM in. The combination of lights and sounds helps diving into the inner thoughts and the perfect tranquillity of body and soul. Floating on the surface of the saltwater pool makes visitors feel that they are alone far away from the stresses of this world.
The bath also provides a 36 degrees Celsius hot tubs, an even warmer muscle relaxing pool, a refreshing cold water pool and a steam cabin with marble benches.
Indoors baths are very popular in Hungary, and Mandala Bath is worthy of this heritage: throughout its 650-square meter-large territory, visitors can find 4 pools, a Jacuzzi for 10 people, a massage room for 5 people and a common room with comfortable armchairs and a buffet.
Unique treatments can also be resorted such as Mandala Aqua Healing, which offer not only simple, healthy body training for the customers, but also a spiritual experience.
The treatments are carried out both below and above the water surface. As the body is floating and relaxing, the mind is also relieved. The experience is complemented by special lights and sounds, not to mention the relaxing mantra music and the delicate odours.
