Celtic Spa – relax like the Celts did!

Our CELTIC SPA is an extraordinary ultra-modern wellness oasis with deep roots in Celtic tradition, breathing the spirit of Celtic history and mythology: Right at the entrance, you are greeted by the Celtic “Tree-of-Life Path” – and then you continue to immerse yourself deeper and deeper in this fascinating world: unique design, exquisite materials and magical light & color concepts produce a feel-good ambience in Celtic style.

The exclusive CELTIC SPA, which was completed in 2014, leaves no wellness wish unfulfilled on its spacious 1500 square meters. Also awaiting you is the CELTIC VITAL: This treatment area of the CELTIC SPA captivates with its effective therapies – both for your health and your beauty. The way wellness should be!

Celtic Sauna
In our sauna world, sauna lovers find everything their heart desires: from the Celtic Fin (90°C sauna), the Celtic Bio (60°C sauna), the Celtic Sole (45°C steam bath with 13 % salt content) to the Celtic Infra (infrared cabin), the Celtic Relaxation Room and a shower area with ice crusher to help you cool down.


Celtic Water
Our swimming pool is filled with the water from hot springs, maintained at a temperature of around 32° C, a perfect way to invigorate every cell in your body. And after your swim, unwind in one of three relaxation rooms – Celtic Silence, Celtic Dream or Celtic Senses. Modern lounge chairs and a magical shell to stretch out on add to your sense of glorious wellbeing.

Celtic Family
In our CELTIC SPA, the whole family is welcome. Awaiting you is a separate family area with a swimsuit sauna. This also offers guests who prefer a little more privacy to enjoy the sauna as well. If you wish to enjoy completely undisturbed relaxation, you can also book the family area as your own “Private Spa” for € 30 per person.

Gastein thermal water

The thermal water in the Gastein valley is weakly mineralised and enriched with natural radon. Studies have shown that the precipitation water trickles down at approx. 1,800 metres above sea level, sinks down to a depth of 2,000 metres, heats up while it is there and then reappears at an altitude of approx. 1,000 metres - it emerges from 17 different springs, which yield five million litres per day.
What is radon and what are the effects of this radioactive substance?
When taken at therapeutic doses, the mild natural radioactivity of this noble gas only has positive effects on the body. It escapes from the thermal water and enters the body via the respiratory tract and the skin. That‘s where it exerts its healing effect before being completely broken down again some 3 hours later. It stimulates the body‘s defence system and its natural warmth promotes blood flow.


The therapeutic success is further reinforced by the altitude of the Gastein spa region. Our body adapts to the altitude, produces more red blood cells, and the ability to release oxygen into the tissue is increased.
The Gastein spa regime has a considerable success rate. Up to 90% of patients benefit from it: they suffer less overall, their quality of life improves and they can cut down on any medication they may already be taking.
Radon therapy is above all used to successfully treat chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system, of the respiratory tract and of the skin. Radon therapy also has potent immunoprophylactic properties.

We recommend that you arrive 10 minutes before the treatment is due to begin, which will allow you to get yourself in the perfect frame of mind as you sip on a cup of tea or a glass of reenergized Celtic Water from our own springs.
Canceling your Celtic Vital Appointment?
If you are unable to make your appointment, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled treatment time. Please note that, if you cancel less than 12 hours beforehand, or if you are a no-show, we will be obliged to bill you 100% of the charges. Thank you for understanding!
Late Arrival?
Unfortunately, if you should arrive late we will not be able to extend your treatment beyond the originally scheduled time. If you arrive for your appointment late, your treatment time will simply be that much shorter.
Out of consideration for the other guests, we ask you to switch off your mobile phone for the duration of your visit to the entire wellness & spa area. Our Celtic SPA & Vital is smoke-free. In deference to your fellow guests, please reduce conversation to a minimum and talk in a low voice in all areas.

Saunas and the relaxation zone outside saunas at the „Celtic SPA Sauna World“ are nude areas. Please use sauna towels to cover yourself as needed.

The family swimsuit sauna „Celtic SPA Family & Water World“ (next to the indoor pool) may be used by children ages 2 and up when accompanied by a parent.
