Ten years ago palace in Rekowo was in ruins. Currently, in the same location there is Hotel SPA Wieniawa complex, where not only can you have some rest while using a range of beauty treatments or perhaps enjoy the peace of a magnificent park, but you can also spend some active time thanks to its numerous sports attractions.
It all began in the late nineteenth century. A man named Hagen from Sobowidz built a palace which soon became the pride of Rekowo. The historical turmoil in the mid-twentieth century was not favourable to the building. After the war, forgotten and left unattended by the authorities of the time, it fell into decay.
It was only about ten years ago that the gem of Rekowo regained its former charm. In the restored building there was built Hotel Wieniawa, surrounded by a three-hectare garden renovated according to the nineteenth-century plans. In addition to the ordinary hotel offer, in the facility you can also organise conferences and unusual weddings in the garden.
Some time ago the complex was enlarged by another building – a cosy SPA. Hotel SPA Wieniawa is located just several minutes from the Baltic coast and less than half-an-hour way from Gdynia, so it’s a great place for a relaxing outing not only for tourists, but for inhabitants of the Tri-City as well.
It’s a place for demanding clients who, when it comes to SPA, are looking for a modern and, at the same time, environmentally-friendly offer. The owner has been interested in a healthy and conscious life with the use of beneficial opportunities offered by nature for many years, and this is exactly how all the guests are treated here. The offer does not include any high-tech machinery or invasive treatments – it is silence and relaxation in harmony with nature that count in Wieniawa.
What’s worth paying attention to is primarily a special offer of original rituals inspired by, among others, Pomorskie region. One of them – ‘Kashubian Strawberry Picking’ (90 min, 190 PLN) – is a relaxing and moisturising treatment which includes aromatic bath in herbs and a relaxing massage with a warm strawberry oil. Aromas being released during the bath soothe the senses, and the massage relaxes tense muscles, moisturises the skin and puts you in a state of equilibrium.
In turn, ‘Scenic Picture of Rekowo Górne’ (80 min, 230 PLN) is a feast for the senses for those who appreciate living in harmony with the environment. The treatment consists of a bath in the essential oil of wild roses and wheat sprouts as well as a massage with an aromatic candle. All the candles used for massages in Wieniawa are high quality French products that perfectly tone up and moisturise the skin leaving it scented for a long time.
The most extended ritual is ‘Sunrise over the park in Wieniawa’ (150 min, 390 PLN), which takes care of the body from head to toe. The treatment revitalises the skin of the face, nourishes hands, relaxes tense back muscles, and additionally puts you in a state of relaxation throughout the massage with Kashubian honey. Many of the rituals also have versions for couples – each treatment room has two workplaces.
The real gem among other attractions of the SPA – swimming pool and sauna – is hammam inspired by the original Turkish steam bath with its characteristic nursing and relaxing ritual consisting of several stages. Stage I is a steam sauna which hydrates the body. Afterwards, while lying on hot stone tables, you are being washed with foam and peeled with a black Moroccan soap. The next stage is cleansing the body with a volcanic clay. Then, your body is being massaged with an argan oil called liquid gold. Finally, you are given a cup of herbal tea.
SPA offer aside, Wieniawa provides numerous sports attractions. In the close vicinity of the park surrounding the whole complex there are tennis courts, playgrounds and – in the basement – two squash courts. Guests can also use an extensive offer of fitness holidays. Instructors prepare special programmes of activities, among others, yoga, swimming or aqua aerobic. For golf enthusiasts in Wieniawa there is a specialist simulator where you can train out of season.
Its extensive and carefully selected offer makes Hotel SPA Wieniawa an ideal choice both for those who seek tranquility in harmony with nature as well as an active leisure in the bosom of it.
