Felix Baths  



Welcome to the Paradise of thermal waters! Almost 15,000 square meters of pools with thermal water full of minerals are waiting for you to experience their healing powers

The miraculous effects of the thermal waters join forces in the largest healing waters resort in Romania. Oradea, along with Felix and 1 Mai Baths, is a real paradise of thermal waters! It’s a place where you should come at least once in a lifetime. Felix Baths is probably the most beautiful thermal tourist destination in Romania, and one of the most advantageous choices for health, recovery, and relaxation in Europe.


The miraculous effects of the thermal waters in Băile Felix have been known since the Roman Empire. Unique around the world, the thermal waters of Băile Felix are the most appreciated healing waters in the region.


Thermal water is so pure that it can be consumed as drinking water


The healing effects of the thermal waters are enhanced to the maximum, throughout the year, by the breeze coming from the Austrian Alps. Outdoor thermal baths in winter are the tourists’ favourites, the sensation of transfer from cold to hot making the experience much more intense.


A unique and harmonious atmosphere will seduce you, and once you get here, comfort and invigoration will be your best friends. Spend at least one day in Băile Felix and fully enjoy the waterpark and spa treatments of your choice.
