Hello Machteld

Thanks for this excellent review.

This is exactly what we aim for: a friendly and hygienic environment to relax, to enjoy the sauna experience, with some good aufguss-sessions and nice food and drinks inbetween.

Hope to see you soon at Katara ;-)

“super sauna”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

I have been to this sauna a couple of times and it's a really nice place. Relaxing, lots of accomodations and a good restaurant.
I would recommend the one-hour scrub sessions :-)

“Relaxing time”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

A new spa easy to find and well equipped. Reception spoke English and explained how it works (i.e. chip band for lockers and charging for any extras including food, pay on exit, including credit cards).There is a good mix of indoor and outdoor saunas (of various temperatures) plus large steam room, all clean and in good working order. Warm and cold outdoor pools plus jacuzzi. Outdoor space already satisfactory but when the planting grows a bit more will be good, plenty of recliners. Inside relaxation space a bit limited being mainly in the restaurant area. As a way of recovering from a day's driving across Europe it is highly recommended. NOTE that nudity is mandatory througout (bathrobes in restaurant) except Wednesdays when swimwear must be worn. Choose your day with care.

Hello

Thank you for stopping by and trying Thermen Katara. Giving a warm welcome and a good explanation what to expect is essential for our customers' comfort.

Great to hear that you liked our large offer and infrastructure. Ofcourse plants and flora in the garden will only start growing now. As you might have noticed it frooze until the beginning of April and plants tend to wait for better weather ...

Our restaurant area provides apx 70 eating places and another 65 relaxation seats (comfort taken into consideration). For the amount of customers that we receive nowadays this is largely enough. Perhaps you might have missed our large and comforable rest room in the garden which offering an extra 20 resting places.

Hope to seen you back on another one of your trips !

“Want to sit back and relax? `”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

What do one do at the Katara.. three words.. relax relax and relax.

From the warm reception to the warm treatments, saunas and pool all is there to spoil the visitor in the lap of luxury..and affordable luxury that is!

Fantastic personnel, excellent treatments and facilities and a first class restaurant makes this a place to treat yourself and your loved ones.

I especially love to visit the Katara when it is cold outside, makes the treatments just so much better and feels like an extra spoil to walk into the warmth. In the summer there are also more than enough comfortable chairs to relax in the sun and soak up the vitamin D.

A fantastic place to visit! Over and Over.

Thank you for these nice compliments !

This is exactly what we try to be : a warm place to spoil and treat our guests with a good price and quality.

Katara is nice in winter to treat your body on some extra warmth and in summer to enjoy the sungarden and the swimming pools.

Hope to see you soon.

“relaxing”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

If you are in the neighbourhood and you wanna relax (with good food), Thermen Katara for sure is the place to be.Good location away from the outside world meaning no one has a chance to look at your from the outside, welcome is warm and it is so clean everywhere you go. The massage and extras they provide, are more then relaxing. You never wanna leave again.
