Enjoy a spa in Tallinn
Here is our guide to Tallinn’s best spas – whether you’re looking for a luxury, romantic, organic, or family-friendly experience.
Estonia is rightly proud of its 200-year-old spa culture, which is still flourishing today. The capital city of Tallinn is home to everything from large and exclusive luxury spa hotels to charming little day spas and beauty salons offering a wide range of spa treatments.
Estonia’s spa tradition was introduced as long ago as 1813 by Georg Witte in the Kadriorg part of the city, which quickly became the holiday destination of choice of the Russian royal family. At this health resort it was possible to revitalize yourself with a range of different treatments.
There is no longer a spa in Kadriorg, but if you head for the Old Town and the city center, you will find several spas that are well worth a visit. Prices range from the luxury to the extremely affordable – there’s something for everyone who’s looking for a fresh start for body and soul.
Five spas to check out in Tallinn
Romance at the Reval Day Spa
In the heart of the Old Town you will find the romantic Reval Day Spa, where you will be looked after by well-trained staff in lovely surroundings. They offer skin and body care, as well as beauty treatments such as brow and lash coloring. The Reval Day Spa also offers treatment packages for customers in pairs, such as “Romantic for two” or “mother and daughter”.
