Haapsalu 

Nestled on a narrow peninsula, Haapsalu captivates with its charm, earning the moniker 'Estonia's Venice.'

Stroll through its narrow streets, where romantic wooden houses tell tales of history.

Renowned as a spa town since the 1800s, Haapsalu beckons you to experience the allure that once drew Central European aristocrats seeking summer retreats and wellness in its acclaimed spas.

Immerse yourself in the heart of this picturesque town, where a 12th-century bishop's castle sets the stage for spectacular events.

Indulge in the perfect blend of history, relaxation, and seaside beauty – Haapsalu awaits your discovery!

Fra Mare & Yoga Space

Experience the Fra Mare Lifestyle – Embracing the Unique Elements of Haapsalu Bay!

At Fra Mare Thalasso Spa, our way of life revolves around the extraordinary benefits of Haapsalu Bay's mud, seawater, sea air, and seaweed for both rejuvenation and therapeutic purposes.

We pride ourselves not only as a spa haven but also as a rehabilitation center, offering a diverse range of Medi Spa treatments.

Nestled in the heart of a beautiful pine forest near Paralepa Beach, Fra Mare Thalasso Spa is a cozy retreat, just a leisurely stroll away from Haapsalu's Old Town and conveniently located a hundred kilometers from Tallinn.

Our aim is to provide a holistic experience – combining yoga, a healthy diet, relaxing and health-promoting activities and treatments, all within the embrace of the surrounding natural environment (sea and forest).

We aspire to become the pioneering service provider and knowledge center in the field of health yoga, grounded in scientific evidence.

 

Join us on this journey towards total well-being!

The Thalasso Day Spa is a modern and attractive sauna and pool complex where you can make the most of rest and leisure. Here you can recharge yourself with a combined mental and physical experience, and forget all your worries. The sea water pool with its range of massaging cascades and falls, the indoor jaccuzzi and the heated outdoor pool with terrace all reduce physical stress and offer plenty of aquatic fun. Different saunas give you a needed relaxation after a long day’s work. 

  • High-temperature FINNISH SAUNA (max. temp. 110°C)

  • Low-temperature FINNISH SAUNA (max. temp. 70°C)

  • STEAM SAUNA (max. temp. 60°C)

  • SALT SAUNA (max. temp. 60°C)

  • SANARIUM (max. temp. 60°C)

  • INFRARED SAUNA (40°C-60°C)

  • SEA WATER POOL Our sea water pool features a range of massage jets and cascades and it is maintained at a constant temperature of between 29°C and 31°C. Sea water procedures help in the prevention of osteoporosis and diseases of the joints, restoring balance in the body and reducing discomfort caused by stress. 

  • JACUZZI BATH

  • HELIOTHERAPY Heliotherapy or sunlight therapy is recommended for those suffering from emotional disturbances or nerve illnesses, but it is also useful when recovering from a serious illness or disease. The heliotherapy room has 10 heated stone benches that are designed for high-comfort relaxation and to keep you warm after long periods in the water.

  • KNEIPP THERAPY In the same room as our sea water pool there is a cold and warm water walking track. Walking barefoot on sand is like giving yourself a localised massage which is an excellent form of therapy. It reduces stress and pain, activates the metabolic process and increases the flow of blood and nutrients into the cells and organs.

  • OUTDOOR POOL The water temperature in our outdoor pool is 27°C. 

Tiina P:

Seaside Yoga Retreat in Haapsalu... Wow, what an experience...

The program was exactly what I had hoped for. The location was picturesque and calming...

Diana is AMAZING! Her dedication to guiding is admirable. With these energies, I'll go a long way into the fall.

Definitely coming back again..

Leena N:

The retreat was my pursuit of tranquility, rest, strength, and a fresh boost to better care for myself again.

The retreat fulfilled all that and more than I was aiming for. After a challenging spring and summer, this was exactly what I needed.

The location was stunning, the weather was favorable, and there was just the right mix of everything – wonderful people, personal time, yoga, the buzz of the city, and relaxation.

 

But above all, the biggest thanks once again go to Diana.

Diana is exceptionally warm-hearted and caring. Moreover, her professionalism is undeniable. However, what I value most is her attitude, which emphasizes kindness, self-acceptance, and appreciation of oneself and others.

Johanna K:

Incredibly fabulous retreat in Haapsalu now behind me. The program was exceptionally well-designed, with a perfect balance of flow and yin yoga, meditation, free time... the location was stunning, and the spa experiences complemented the retreat. However, the best part is Diana's unbelievably sunny and energetic nature, which always provides an extra boost of strength and joy. I highly recommend it with more warmth than ever.
