“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.
