Just to clarify for possible visitors: Ocna Sibiului is just the town not the spa, in rumenian means something like "salt mine of Sibiu" and is an ancient settlement at least from roman empire when it was first started the salt mining here. Then it becomes a themal area very well appeciated during austro-hungaric period. Nowadays it is a small town at 12 km from Sibiu centre mainly know for thermal facilities. Here you can find three major complex: Helios hotel and Spa (the one the pictures shown) the Ocna Sibiului Strand and the Ocna Sibiului public complex. The first is a 4 star hotel with Spa (sauna, gym, turkish bath and inside salty pool) it is old style but nice, outside you have a salt water poll for summer, inside you can spend good time with healt treatments, mud massage and so on. During summer is the less crowdy, prices the highest. Let say that is the best solution for a week of relax and therapy for higher budget. Food is so and so. The second one, Ocna Sibiului Strand is a restaurant and Spa, during winter you have internal salty pool (very very nice) with sauna, turkish bath and jacuzzi. Sauna is very good and two small pools with hot and cold (very cold) water are the perfect ending of your sauna! Must try! During summer you have salty lakes outside where you can swin or simply stay laying on the very salted water. Be careful the water it is not filtered as in a normal pool, seems dirty but considered the salt grade it is biologically ok, no risks, very nice feeling. Watch out during august could be crowdy, come early in the morning (08:00) or you will remain without space. This is the best solution for medium budget and facilities offered. The third one is the "public" complex with lot of salty lakes, sandy beaches, bars and restaurants. It is open starting from May-June and become very crowdy when is hot. Is called the Sibiu sea! You can spend a full day here for very few money but be aware that is low-budget for everybody so be prepared do not expect too much. Nearby there are lot of small B&B where you can stay one night for 30 euro. I live few km from Ocna and my favourite is the second one. The first has only a small pool during winter, the third is too crowdy during summer. Anyway you can have good relaxing time here with a small budget.

We just had a weekend away to experience a Romanian Spa - the hotel was clean and service generally friendly. We made use of the mineral baths and spa services (massage) -other services are limited on the weekend but the massage was very good value. Breakfast was ok. We went into Sibiu for dinner only 10 - 15 Euro to get there,
