Before we explore spas that have proved most popular by the guests of Hotel Neiburgs, it would be interesting to take a closer look at the combination of these three letters that evokes universally positive emotions.

One of the interpretations of the word ‘spa’ considers it an acronym of the Latin phrase ‘sanitas per aquam’ or ‘health through water’. This concept dates back to Ancient Rome, where hot springs and thermal baths were widely used to improve people’s health. According to another explanation of the word ‘spa’, it was borrowed from the name of the Belgian town of Spa, a resort renowned for its mineral springs.

It has been suggested that, to find inner harmony and wellbeing, at least an hour a day should be spent taking care of ourselves. Why not use this hour now and then by enjoying some lovely treatments at a spa? Spa treatments vary and can suit both people looking for peace and relaxation and those who consider themselves enthusiasts of active recreation.

Hotel Neiburgs Spa in the Old Town

Guests of the city and locals alike are invited to spend some rest and relaxation time at the spa salon of Hotel Neiburgs.

You can enjoy our sauna or steam bath and rain shower and order a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice from our restaurant.

Additionally, Hotel Neiburgs in association with PARK SPA offers its guests a range of treatments that will make your travel tension disappear, help relax after a tiring day and summon fresh energy.

Hotel Neiburgs’ priority is the wellbeing of it guests, and for this reason we have forged friendly relations over the years with a number of spas in Riga and other Latvian cities.
