As one of the first destinations to offer medical and cosmetic tourism, it is no wonder Ukraine is hot on spa hotels. Indulge in a full body massage by the Black Sea or kick back in a sauna after skiing in Bukovel – by booking one of these top affordable wellness retreats, all available on Culture Trip.
Escape to the wild at the Respect Hotel in Skhidnytsa, perched on the fringe of Skolivski Beskydy National Park. Visitors have flocked here since the 1970s to bathe in the natural healing waters of the area. Soak in a mineral-rich bath at the luxury spa, before wrapping up in a cosy robe and sipping on natural Carpathian tea overlooking the pine-clad hillsides. There are even special treatments for men, including a Bavarian beer bath. Cheers to that!
Nestled in the Carpathian ski resort of Bukovel, Ganz and Spa is a great destination for both physical and mental wellbeing during the winter months. There is nothing better than being able to relax in a heated indoor pool, sauna or steam room after a day carving down the groomed pistes. Expect wood-clad, chalet-style rooms and hearty Ukrainian dishes like galushki (dumplings) in the on-site restaurant.
