ONE of the best-known spas in Slovakia, Slovenské Lieèebné Kúpele Piešťany (SLKP), has obtained a Europespa quality certificate from the European Spas Association (ESPA). The spa is the first in central and eastern Europe to obtain the Europespa certificate, SLKP spokesperson Jana Štefeèková Beòaèková said, as reported by the TASR newswire.
“We are very glad that ESPA granted us the quality certificate,” said Štefečková Beňačková, adding that the certificate is valid until 2014. “This will help us to maintain the quality of services at a professional level and simultaneously enable us to rank among internationally acknowledged European spas.”
SLKP perceives certification as recognition that it has reached the highest European standards, but also as another step towards successful negotiation with foreign health insurance companies.
