Haj Bhania - GB Men’s Coach

It was good to meet you and I wanted to thank you and your staff for hosting us at our training camp last week. It was a very productive week and enjoyed by all. In particular –
- Both of you and all your staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful
- The hotel and rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious
- Catering was varied and high quality
- Access to the meeting room, spa and gym was useful
- Location of the hotel relative to the airport, sports hall and shops was convenient

Christian Åhman, Teamleader/Equipment of Swedish National Men´s U20 Handball team:

I´ll want to thank for the very good service that we had all the days we stayed at your hotel, perfect rooms, nice and attentive staff, good service, good and varied food, perfect handle of our landry during our time at your hotel

Vanja Brodnik, Alpine Skier:

I'm happy for this cooperation and I like that I had professional guidance each step of the way, because only in such a professional way results are generated. With the physiotherapist Urška we worked on the physical preparation of the body, individual treatment, additional exercises to stabilize the back, which must be strengthened, especially with skiers. I was familiar with yoga, but Pratheep, the Indian Yoga Trainer, has that positive energy, which makes the exercise more authentic. In swimming trainings I first learned the proper swimming technique, which now allows me to swim easier and faster and it is more fun all together. I'm very satisfied with the comprehensive treatment of the body. Each team member contributed their knowledge, energy, vision and help me gained a wider knowledge.

Stane Kokalj, Futsal Manager at the Football Association of Slovenia:

The Slovenian Futsal Teams are frequent guest of the town by the Savinja River, either for preparation or qualifying tournaments. We like the proximity to the Three Lilies Sports Hall, which is just a few 100 metres distance away from the Thermana Laško hotels. We are pleased with the available hotel infrastructure, because they have everything we need. The professional attitude of employees, who are able to adapt to the athletes and their needs, adds the finishing touch.

Branko Tamše, Head Coach of the RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko handball club:

In August we conducted the preparations for the new season in Thermana Laško. For me personally, as well as for some of my boys, it was the first time in this complex. Given that we see a lot of hotels both in Europe and around the world, I have to admit that we were very satisfied with our accommodation and all the hotel services (from wellness to the kitchen). I must also commend the friendliness of the staff. Despite the fact that at the time of our preparations the hotel had an occupancy of 100 %, the quality of services was not affected. The conditions could not have been better. Laško is a very friendly town, that I saw from a different perspective. It is also the town of our sponsor the Pivovarna Laško brewery, and it is famous for their Beer and Flowers Festival. Besides this, the town also offers an enormous amount of running trails, of which we successfully took full advantage during our preparations, as well as including running on the Hum Hill.

Alenka Škreblin, Director of female national teams at the Basketball Federation of Slovenia:

The Basketball Federation of Slovenia and the company Thermana Laško, d. d., started their collaboration at the time of the EuroBasket 2013 event, which was until now the biggest sports event in Slovenia. The men's national team members from the first part of the competition, who had their matches in Celje, were staying at the Hotel Thermana Park Laško and were given all the conditions for the perfect accommodation and preparations for the matches. We then continued our cooperation in 2015, when we hosted the European Championship for girls up to 18 years. In the facilities of Thermana, d. d., 14 teams were accommodated. With the joint cooperation, assistance and mutual understanding in providing all the necessary services, the organisation of this championship has been marked to being at the highest level. Due to the positive feedback and understanding of the sport, our cooperation still continues. The women's national team, which is only a step away from the premiere rankings to the European Championship, has excellent conditions for accommodation. The staff is always smiling and is willing to help contribute to this goal. Also, our teams of the younger categories enjoy their stay in Laško. The good reputation has gone abroad, and this summer some men's basketball teams will complete part of their preparations for the big competitions in Laško.

Miran Kranjc, Director and Owner of Condor Travel Agency

We have been cooperating with Thermana Laško in the field of sports tourism for many years. Throughout the past 7 years we have successfully carried out the Judo World Cup as well as our training camps for basketball, soccer, handball players ... we have also collaborated in the organization of our international handball tournament for young players, which is partly held in Laško. So far we have been very satisfied with the flexibility and responsiveness of the Thermana Laško staff. It can be said that the Hotel Thermana Park Laško is one of the best prepared hotels to accommodate athletes. All members of the staff who worked with us from the receptionist, chefs, waiters and other people in the background, can only be praised. We are certainly looking forward to further joint projects in the near and distant future.

Dr. IGOR ZELINKA, Karate zveza Slovenije

In the Karate Federation of Slovenia we're receiving praise from all sides for the organization of the Karate1-World cup, which we organized in Laško with the help of Thermana Laško. The contestants, as well as the coaches, judges and supporting staff were impressed by the location, the proximity to the sports hall and the accommodation capacities. Our guests highly praise the professional attitude, friendliness and hospitality of the Thermana laško staff, the rich culinary offer, which covers both the appropriate nutrition for athletes as well as a wide selection of food and diets, and the wide selection of services of the Wellness Spa Centre. As a result of all the activity in the last few years, Laško has become well known in the Karate community, as an excellent venue for organizing competitions.
