Q. I am looking for a spa for a “girls’ day” and the requirements are: nice spa with massages, facials, etc. and a restaurant on site. Any recommendations? (Posted 1/2/2013)
A. The spa at the Sacher hotel.
A. The spa at the Kempinski in Bratislava is lovely, with a view of the Danube.
A. Therme Wien is great. It’s kind of expensive, but a great three hours.
A. Walibi in Sopron, Hungary, just over the border. It offers a lot of great treatments for a fraction of the cost of Viennese spas, and has a restaurant.
A. Pure Day Spa on Tuchlauben 11 in the 1st district is nice and easy to get to.
A. Wabi, about an hour east on the highway from Vienna to just over the border in Hungary. They have a long list of available services and so many service providers. Seemed to me that even if I had not had an appointment, I would have been able to be seen right away. This was on a Sunday.
