Mrs. Nurten Ünsev talks about HW SPA (Holy and Day) by Nurten Ünsev - a managing system in exclusive resorts and hotels and an international SPA and Beauty brand, established for over 18 years on the Turkish market. What stands behind W SPA by Wave Resort?

"W SPA is part of the latest Black Sea coast project, Wave Resort, which opened its doors last June.

It has been my pleasure to participate as a Member of Board and an Investor in Wave Resort and establish on the Bulgarian market the new SPA brand - HW SPA (Holy and Day) by Nurten Ünsev. We are now introducing the lush exotic South and the Turkish Ultra-All-Inclusive concept in our home at the Black Sea coast. It can be said that Antalya came “on its feet” to Bulgaria. We use our know-how and our system of work from Turkey, here to beautiful Bulgaria!

At W SPA we combine three product lines: Medical and Balneo SPA, SPA and Wellness, and Beauty Spa.

This summer we are about to introduce the new Medical & Balneo SPA section in the center. Our team there consists of medical specialists and a highly qualified team of rehabilitators and kinesitherapists. We take advantage of the natural resources, which can be found just a stem from the resort and use natural products such as Pomorie Lye for balneology. We focus on health tourism using the huge base of the Medical - Balneo SPA section in the center and present programs for prevention and recovery. Since last year we have been members of the Bulgarian Balneology and Spa Association and in the coming summer season we are to welcome the first German guests, traveling to Bulgaria for health prevention and rehabilitation programs.

The area we are located in is one of the most environmentally sustainable on the Black Sea coast, with its clean air, tranquillity and unspoiled nature. Our beach is extremely suitable for healing sunbathing. It has fine graphite sand, rich in iron and salts that perfectly complements the recreation conditions the resort offers.

We are also intruducing SPA & Wellness programs. W SPA with its area of 2,500 m2 consists of an indoor heated pool, an outdoor waterfall pool, a sun terrace, a fitness center with an area of 500 m2, a traditional Turkish hammam with a VIP area for couples and more than 10 treatment rooms.

Our guests have access to 4 saunas - herbal - 45 degrees, steam - 45 degrees, Finnish - 95 degrees and Turkish hammam - 42-45 degrees. The relax zone is equipped with enough resting places and is close to it. Sports activities for stretching, yoga, medical rehabilitation, gymnastics and fit ball are offered daily.

The center features a special room "Treasures of Bulgaria" for rituals with Bulgarian rose, honey and milk, Rhodope ritual with clay tiles and detox oil with seven herbs. We also focus on exotic Asian SPA rituals such as Thai and Balinese massage, Ayurveda, Hot Stone therapies and the Bamboo massage, which is emblematic for W SPA.

W SPA has a therapeutic saltwater pool with underwater massage and a temperature of 36-38 ° C. A hydromassage, combined with a slow walk in the Kneipp Trail, improves blood circulation and stimulates metabolism. The halotherapy effect can be enhanced by a relaxation session in the Salt room. Its walls are made of blocks of Himalayan salt, and the halogenerator creates a therapeutic microclimate, dispensing untreated rock salt in aerosol form with varying degrees of intensity. These sessions have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects on respiratory, allergic, skin and respiratory diseases.

We offer hydrotherapy treatments in a hydromassage bath with intensive muscle or relaxation programs in the combination of products with sea salts, alkalis and aromatic oils. The cabinet with specially equipped Vichy Shower has 4 programs with contrast showers (hot and cold), combined with manual and hardware procedures for vertical and horizontal application.

The elegant design of the rooms offers functionality and comfort, with a shower room in each room and some with an individual steam bath and infrared lamp. An innovative solution for the SPA area is the monitoring system, using a dashboard showing the status of each room - lighting, temperature, access, alarm and more.

In the Beauty parlour, our stylists are satisfying the most sophisticated taste of our clients. Hairdresser, manicure and pedicure services are on offer.

W SPA's mission is to establish HW SPA (Holy and Day) by Nurten Ünsev as a new SPA brand for Bulgaria that combines a variety of SPA products and aims to meet the utmost expectations of our guests. The favourable natural conditions and excellent infrastructure for development of Medical and Balneo, SPA and Wellness and Beauty Spa Services at Wave Resort will help in the long term to extend a longer operational window, which will help us minimize the short seasonality of the destination and impose high quality and preferred complex product over a larger time window.

The brand and vision at W SPA go hand in hand with the concept of the hotel and target the high-end exclusive clientele. Wave Resort was designed and built by leading Bulgarian construction companies, architects and designers. Some of the best landscaping companies in Turkey and Italy have taken care of the landscape and the exterior layout of the common areas. The BEST can be seen everywhere: a Bulgarian, Turkish and international presence. The resort team is also international. Customers and staff combine a wonderful multilingual and multicultural blend. ”
