Saliris Resort Spa & Hotel****
It is impossible to define the style of the Saliris Resort hotel and medicinal spa complex.
When guests turn into the Thermal Valley from the village of Demjén or the city of Eger, in the mist of the salt hill they might think it a terraced building that is quite the opposite of the Hundertwasser riot of colours.
However, the closer guests get, the more they sense the family atmosphere of happy peacetimes.
The Saliris Resort deliberately does not follow current fashion trends since here the natural environment is the key to everything: in the interior areas materials in earthy colours exude elegance.
That is true for example of the Pakistani salt tiles that lend the bar and reception a special atmosphere, the Makassar ebony that gives the public areas their air of distinction and elegance and the handmade unique wallpapers.
The interior design of the hotel was guided by the principle that guests should be surrounded by premium-quality materials in the rooms too.
The Saliris Resort has 203 rooms: 190 standard rooms (of which 50 are connecting), 9 suites, 1 presidential suite and 3 disabled-accessible rooms. All rooms are equipped with a flat-screen television providing access to almost 20 channels, telephone, internet connection, mini bar, safe, air heating-conditioning and coffee/tea-making facilities. All rooms have a terrace.
Egerszalók is a village with a population of almost 2,000 people situated between the Mátra and the Bükk mountains in the valley of the Laskó stream, just 5km from Eger.
The appeal of the village lies in the natural beauty of the area, which offers tourists countless points of interest. Egerszalók’s main attraction is the thermal source springing from the depths of the earth in the south of the village and the salt hill created by the water flowing down the hillside.
The salt deposits from the 65-68 C◦ medicinal water extremely rich in minerals continuously build the scalloped, white formations, which are such an impressive sight.
The calcium-magnesium bicarbonate medicinal water also containing sodium and metasilicic acid has been given one of the best ratings in the category of sulphurous medicinal waters.
The water was classified as medicinal by the health ministry in 1992. Over the years the salt hill thanks to its unique characteristics has become the symbol and trademark of the local area.
Similar natural formations can only be found in two other places in the world: in the Asian part of Turkey in Pamukkale, and in the Yosemite Park in the USA. In Europe it is unique.
The exclusive medicinal and wellness spa opened in Egerszalók on 13 July, 2007.
The building is situated on the hillside with some of the pools lying in the beautiful valley. The built ground area of the spa is 10,844 m2, and it has a capacity of some 1,000 people at any given time.
With a total water surface of 1,900 m2 it boasts a total of 17 outdoor and indoor pools. Medicinal water sitting pools, cave pool, whirlpool bath, adventure pools, children’s pools, Kneipp and echo pools ensure that both younger and older guests will be in their element.

The spa’s exclusive sauna world will refresh both your body and mind. In the indoor section a Finnish sauna, steam bath, aroma cabin and whirlpool bath can be found.
What is more, a Finnish log sauna and a Russian log sauna have been built in the sauna courtyard.
