The quality of service and infrastructure of the AB-I ZEN Spa & Rituals Lounge, a trademark of Ela Quality Resort, was awarded with the EUROPESPA WELLNESS certificate, proving that it meets high European quality standards.
Under the living conditions that are becoming more difficult and with the ageing population structure, the Europeans are gradually becoming more aware of “healthy life”. The spa sector that is rapidly developing in the world offers new insights and targets nowadays. This situation brings together new research and efforts in the European health system and a high-quality service understanding in healthcare practices. The number of new trend and new generation spa centres is increasing rapidly. The progress and development in this sector is led by ESPA (European SPA Association). The European Spa Association (ESPA) has more than 1200 members of spa and health centres from 22 countries and 25 federations. It aims to improve and/or guarantee the European quality standards at spa and treatment centres.
Our AB-I ZEN Spa & Loung is a member of TURKAP (Association of Thermal Springs, Thalasso and Treatment Centers) and a member of the European Spas Association (ESPA) and thus has an international character.

AB-I ZEN Spa & Rituals Lounge, an Ela Quality Resort trademark, has finally been awarded with EUROPESPA WELLNESS certificate, verifying that service and infrastructure meet the European quality standards, which was issued after a series of inspections and audits performed by ESPA throughout the entire hotel.

In 2009, only three hotels from Turkey have applied for EUROPESPA WELLNESS certificate under the organisation of TURKAP (Turkish Association of Thermal Springs) and as a result of the inspections, two hotels were awarded with this certificate. Although it i regrettable in respect of health tourism in Turkey that the number of hotels awarded with EUROPESPA WELLNESS certificates is only three, while the number of hotels in awarded with EUROPESPA WELLNESS certificates is about 70-75 in Germany, we are sure that this award will help us on our way to even improving future developments of the AB-I ZEN Spa & Rituals Lounge.
With this certificate, Ela Quality Resort Hotel will be listed in the web sites of the ESPA and associated institutions as well as through the search engines on the lists of recommended hotels. The official recognition of this certification by the tour operators selling the European leading SPA & WELLNESS such as TUI VITAL and FIT REISEN, etc. will guarantee the improvement of spa service quality and the further development of spa tourism in the European region.
Designed for relaxation and spiritual integration in its entirety, AB-I ZEN uses 100% organic and natural products in one hundred and sixty different care and massage treatments that it offers to its guests and it also offers Wellness options for physical and spiritual relaxation.
