About Emerald Spa


Started in 2021, Emerald Spa is a tiny oasis in the city of Krakow.

We are located in the health-spa area of Swoszowice, south Kraków, known for many years for its healing properties, open areas and parks. We are just 15-20 mins from the centre of Krakow.

We particular specialise in being a ‘home/boutique’ spa with a family-like friendly atmosphere, far away from the cold, larger commercial venues. Our spa is a place of health, relaxation and recovery, but also be a place of growing friendships, great fun and good food. 

Our team includes experienced and qualified massage therapists, counsellors, therapists and sauna masters. We know how to help you unwind, chill, relax and feel restored – and have the inspiration to move on in your life.

We love bringing people together too, so we welcome you also to our social group events varying from ‘meet and greet’, to workshops on health and vitality.

You can also make use of our facilities privately for closed events for a group or just a couple.

Whatever your requirements, give us a call and see how we can help you.

Are you open all the time, for anyone?

No, Our Spa is a private property and our massages, sauna/hot tub, pool and gardens and private rooms are only open during organised events or parties (those events we organise ourselves), or exclusive parties we host you (by prior arrangement). Massage services, packages and workshops can be arranged at any time to suit you, by calling us, in advance.

Can we bring our own food and drinks?

Sorry! We don’t allow the consumption of any food or drink not purchased at the spa. We can provide almost any refreshments you need, including teas, coffee and fruit juices.

Can we pay upon arrival?

Yes you can, but for some events or workshops with limited space, we might ask for a deposit. For massages you may pay upon arrival, if you have previously arranged a time and date with us.

We accept payment by cash, but also credit/debit card or blik is possible.

What do we wear in the sauna, the spa, or at your parties?

All our events are clothing optional. You can wear or not wear, whatever makes you feel comfortable. Our saunas are real, authentic saunas, and our organised events are run according to Finnish traditions, and include German aufgus traditions including a saunamaster. Please ensure you are familiar with the sauna culture. This means that usually people are nude. As a naturist-friendly, and health resort, some people may wish not to wear clothes outside of the sauna too. It is possible to sunbathe, swim, use the hot-tub, eat a meal, relax and use the whole premises clothing-free if you wish.

In the Sauna, you may NOT ever wear a plastic-based swimming costume, but you may cover yourself with a cotton towel or sheet, if you wish. Be aware that other people may be nude. Do not wear anything you previously wore in the hot-tub or pool (as that may contain chlorine).

We ask all participants to ideally bring TWO towels – at least. One large one to sit on (in the sauna, or outside the sauna) and another one for drying after shower/jacuzzi. When in the sauna, you must ensure that no part of your skin touches the raw wooden benches. A part of your towel should be under your feet, body and back (if touching the wood).

Some people additionally wear a sauna hat.

See blog entries for reasons, and more details of sauna etiquette and culture.

During massages, you would usually be nude. During classic (Swedish) massage, you may wear lower-part underwear if you prefer.

Do you offer accommodation?

We have a number of rooms available, for couples, 4 person rooms, and space for singles. Shared bathrooms are available (on the same level as bedrooms, and also by the saunas). The rooms are not publicly available for all, and only as part of a package for those attending one of our events or parties. Book early to secure a room as space is limited.

An overnight stay includes a choice of breakfasts, and each room is equipped with tea/coffee facilities, towels and bathrobes.

You may also book a room for a short time (minimum 2 hours) at any time  – but call to book in advance.

Can we park at the Spa?

We have limited free parking on site for up to 6 cars, but additional, free parking is available opposite or very nearby the spa. We cannot reserve parking for you, unless you are also booking overnight accommodation. Our parking is monitored, discrete, and hidden from the road.
