THIS SPA IS AN OASIS IN THE HEART OF BERLIN
Hi, I spent my Christmas in Berlin, and the best part of this Christmas holiday was going to Vabali Spa. A HUGE spa heaven, where you can easily spend all day, in fact we went twice and didn’t get enough! This eastern inspired spa is 20.000M2 of pure relaxation, with indoor and outdoor pools, 6 (!) different saunas, my favorite was the Garden sauna and the Russian Birch wood sauna. No phones etc are allowed, and there is plenty of rooms with beds, sofas, fireplaces where you just relax in your robe, read a book or simply take a nap.
When you are in the pools or saunas you are stripped naked..! No textiles are allowed (for bacteria reasons) this was my biggest dread before going, as I am quite a private woman in spite of having a body I am very pleased with (self love and yoga). But it only took about 10mins. into the visit before I forgot about the nakedness, also I didn’t look at other peoples bodies and I didn’t feel like I was being looked at in any inappropriate way, in fact it was quite a mind opening experience. -When your out of the pools etc you wear your towel or robe.
The only ‘but’ I have was the restaurant, where the food did not match the rest of this great experience unfortunately.
However If you are ever in Berlin you HAVE to go to this spa it was soooo good, and really inexpensive considering you can stay all day if you want to. I’m going again for sure and I’m bringing my mom!
