IDW Esperanza Resort *****
Situated 40 minutes away from Vilnius, with its famous town centre and only 13kms away from the tourist village of Trakai; IDW Esperanza Resort is situated in Lithuania in a breath-taking, natural context bordering a lake with a private beach and enclosed by a 27-acre pine forest. One particular feature of the hotel is its stone and cedar wood composition- the cedar wood is imported from British Colombia, a region in Canada- thus making little impact on the environment. Counting only 34 rooms; all of which are luxuriously furnished with specifications to suit all requirements, it boasts three restaurants with diverse culinary options to choose from whilst enjoying a view of the lake. The hotel is well-equipped for outdoor activities with tennis courts and a court for playing football, basketball and (or) volleyball. Even more so for relaxation and pyscho-physical well-being: a Spa, hidden in the midst of luxuriant nature, provides a large, indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam rooms and an exclusive Russian Bath as well as other spaces for massages and innovative facial and body treatments. At the Resort, conferences, workshops and courses can be held thanks to two large multi-functional rooms, capable of holding up to 200 people. All based in absolute serenity and privacy with 24hr surveillance.
Hidden in a discreet part of the thick, lush, green forest in the Aukstadvaris National Park, the Esperanza Spa renders: a large swimming pool, a Jacuzzi tub, a sauna and steam room with Vitamin D lamps for a natural, skin-friendly tan, a collagen-boosting lamp and an infrared sauna. A secluded space is reserved for the Russian Bath, an alternative option to the sauna and Turkish bath, with a temperature of 50 degrees and humidity set at 60 degrees. Body treatments, such as the Amphibia bed- sand and floating bed treatment dedicated to strengthening the body- are all performed in exclusive ambients. There are many massage and beauty treatments to choose from, all aided by innovative products.
