Hotel Izvir ****
The Radenci Health Resort, where you’ll find the Hotel Izvir, is situated in the town of Radenci in north west Slovenia, just two hours’ drive from Trieste and just a few kilometres from the Austrian border. The town has been renowned since the end of the XIX century for Radenska mineral water, which is bottled here and exported throughout Europe, instantly recognisable by the 3 red hearts on the label. The same water fills the Wellness Centre straight from the source and is used for the centre’s mineral water remedies (the hotel takes its name from one of the springs of Radenci). Immersed in a lush green landscape of corn fields and undulating vineyards that line the Mura river, the Hotel Izvir offers access to a complex of pools, both with spring water or simply for swimming, indoor and outdoor. The hotel’s wellness offer also includes access to an Ayurveda Centre, Health and Relaxation Centre, a Beauty Centre and health and wellness programs for athletes. The Radenci Health Resort, to which the Hotel Izvir and the adjoining Hotel Radin, offer a range of facilities where guests can play sports and exercise, in the gym or out on the tennis and beach volleyball courts.
Guests at the Hotel Izvir have free access to the pool complex, which includes an indoor swimming pool filled with normal water, a hot spring water pool at 37°C, an indoor and an outdoor mineral water pool, small paddling pools for children (with normal water and hot spring water at 33-34°C) and a pool for Kneipp courses with cold water. The Radenci Health Resort also contains an Ayurveda Centre, where various types of massages are available, including hot oil massage. In the Health Centre and Relax Corrium, the services and treatments are mostly linked to the use of Radenska mineral water and the local hot springs, which are particularly effective for treating ailments within the urinary system, cardiovascular problems and peripheral circulation problems, but can also help problems with mobility and digestion. The structure also has six types of sauna, a Beauty Centre which offers a range of massages and treatments for the face, which use hyaluronic acids, gold and wine (vinotherapy) and the "Stone e Concerto" centre, where treatments include massages with volcanic stones.
The 128 rooms of the Hotel Izvir, most of which have a balcony, are all equipped with air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, mini-bar, and a safe deposit box. There are also rooms equipped for disabled guests. Free Wi-Fi connection is available in the rooms and in the communal areas of the hotel.
There are two restaurants at the Hotel Izvir, shared with the adjoining Hotel Radin. The first offers local and international menus but also offers the possibility to try delicacies suitable for a healthy, slimming diet, based on the principles of Ayurveda or prepared according to personal dietary requirements. The Park restaurant, on the other hand, specialises in local cuisine and the old recipes of Slovenian tradition, served in an informal atmosphere. The hotel bar also serves drinks and light snacks.
