Award of the “SaunaPremium” quality mark

The Asia Spa Leoben is the first Austrian company to be awarded the “SaunaPremium” quality mark.

On 7th April 2014 the Asia Spa Leoben was awarded the “SaunaPremium” quality mark by the Deutscher Sauna-Bund e. V. As a result, the Asia Spa Leoben has the only sauna facility anywhere in Austria to be awarded five stars.

This quality system for saunas was established by the Deutscher Sauna-Bund e. V. in order to ensure greater safety for sauna-goers and to make it easier to choose the right establishment. The system, which is comparable to the star classification in the hotel industry, comprises three quality categories: classic, selection and premium. In order to be awarded the “SaunaPremium” classification, a sauna facility must offer a comprehensive range of pools, spa services and a range of experiences, enabling guests to spend a full day on the premises. At the Asia Spa Leoben five sweat rooms at different temperatures and with different climactic conditions are available to guests in the indoor area, as well as two outdoor saunas. The high-quality range on offer in the sauna area, combined with the comprehensive spa treatment menu and the extensive pool area were decisive in the awarding the quality mark.

“We are delighted to be the first Austrian company to be awarded the top quality mark “SaunaPremium”. The certification is an affirmation of our quality management, and also makes it much easier for sauna-goers to compare our range of services with that of other saunas,” explains Oliver Oswald, Operations Manager of the Asia Spa Leoben.

The Asia Spa Leoben first opened its doors to young and old in the spring of 2008. The inspiration for building this unique wellness and relaxation resort derived from the many years of being twinned with the Chinese city of Xuzhou. Following two years spent on planning and construction, a spa was created in Leoben’s Au region, drawing on a knowledge of Chinese traditions and architecture, the principles of Feng Shui and collaboration with Chinese experts. What gives the architecture its special charm is the deliberate fusion of Chinese and European elements. The Asia Spa Leoben comprises diverse pool and sauna areas. Whilst the range of facilities on offer in the pool area is mainly aimed at sports enthusiasts and families, the sauna area, with one of the most creative Aufguss programmes in Austria (German for infusion, Finnish löyly, a ritual involving creating steam by pouring liquid onto hot stones and circulating the air in the sauna), provides a pleasant atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy a sensation of well-being. The sauna masters pamper their guests with up to 16 different Aufguss sessions a day, and with special events, such as themed sauna nights and the sauna of your choice, they ensure no wish is left unfulfilled.
