Balneo Complex & Spa Aquatonik – Velingrad

AquatoniK is a balneo complex and spa hotel in the Chepino area of Velingrad. We will share with you how we spent our time in the 4-star hotel with one of the best spas we have ever visited. We regret we didn’t find this gem earlier. So, we present to you Balneocomplex & SPA AquatoniK – Velingrad.

We booked our room at AquatoniK at the last minute and with a Genius discount on, so we had no idea what type of room we were booking. The hotel offers double rooms, double superior rooms without balconies, and double superior rooms with balconies. Superior rooms have sofa beds that can be used by small children.

It turned out that we were accommodated in a double room with a balcony, quite large and shared by several rooms. There was enough room on it for a dance by all the guests of the hotel, however, we used it as a platform for taking off and landing the drone.

They had introduced a system with labeled laundry tongs so as not to confuse the bathrobes at the spa center. Breakfast covid measures at the restaurant included wearing a mask and gloves whenever you help yourself in the buffet area. Some of the tables were not used to provide distancing. Breakfast was varied, with fresh fruit, an omelet-cooking station, and hot and cold food.

The SPA center

This was where AquatoniK won us over! We started from the aquatonik pool with a water labyrinth, a salt room, and a salt steam bath. The pool really has a maze of hydromassage therapies and features such as a “levitation” water bench, a bench with nozzles, paths with nozzles that massage at different levels, waterfalls, a turbojet, and a radon melter – two contrasting pools with hot and cold water. Finally, we went through an adventure shower, had Tropical Storm and a London Mist showers, and were ready for the next level.

The aquatonik pool can entertain you for at least an hour without you even noticing how the time has passed. It has 57 massage nozzles with which you can massage any part of your body. Our favorites were the Chinese foot massage on an underwater lounger, the corner pool, the fine nozzles for your neck, the Radon mineral pool, and the aqua biking and aqua running. From the inside part, you can go to the outdoor mineral pool with two contrasting tubes, a sundeck with loungers, and views of the pines.

There is more, now we’re getting to the spa center. It has a Roman bath, Dr. Kneipp path (where you walk between baths with cold water of 18 degrees and warm water of 34 degrees Celsius), ice room, steam bath, sauna, infrared sauna, and Finnish sauna. We tried them all and finally stayed in the relax room, where we chilled out in a cozy atmosphere listening to all kinds of Zen and relaxing music from headphones. We didn’t forget to spoil ourselves with massages and laugh in the lobby of laughter therapy.

What to do in the area

If we want to diversify our spa experiences and explore the town and region, there are several options for this. The hotel organizes horseback riding and hiking in the woods.

The hotel is located next to Lake Kleptuza and the railway station Velingrad-South, and the narrow-gauge railway is a truly unforgettable adventure! For inspiration – here is our article with ideas of what to do and see in and around Velingrad.

In conclusion, we liked the experience in the SPA center and the aquatonik pools, the combination with the terrace overlooking the narrow-gauge railways and the forest, and the dozens of possibilities for using the nozzles and mineral waters is more than amazing, and we loved the value for money ratio. We’d definitely return to AquatoniK again!
