30 Million Kuna to Be Invested in Spa Complex in Bizovac

Total Croatia News

Bizovačke Toplice are one of the main tourist centres in Slavonia.

In mid-January, Bizovačke Toplice (Bizovac Spa) will temporarily close its doors for visitors. The complex was bought three years ago by one of the leading hoteliers in Croatia, Jako Andabak. The reason for closure is the fourth phase of the investment project in the health and spa complex. While the pools will again be opened in the spring, the reconstruction of the Termia Hotel, opened in early 1990s, will last until the second half of this year. The value of this phase of the investment is estimated at about 30 million kuna, reports tportal.hr on January 6, 2017.

“It is difficult to say when we will finish with the reconstruction, but the hotel will reopen in the second half of this year. Currently it has about a hundred rooms, and after the reconstruction we will increase that number by 10 to 20 percent”, said Stjepko Bulić, director of Sunčane Toplice company.

The reconstruction will also bring improvement to the hotel’s rating, from two stars to three, but only due to size of individual rooms, since everything else will be at a four-star level.

After purchasing this health and hotel complex in eastern Croatia three years ago for 14 million kuna, the new owners have announced investments worth nearly one hundred million kuna. In the first phase, they invested ten million kuna in the construction of the largest swimming pool with artificial waves in Croatia, which opened in August 2015, while last summer they executed a complete reconstruction of indoor swimming pools, in which they invested additional 20 million kuna.

In the meantime, a completely new health centre was built, called Centre for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, with 116 beds in 56 hospital rooms and two suites, and with the latest technology to help patients. Beds are driven by motors, bathrooms have been adapted to disabled patients, and each patient has its own physiotherapist. About 22 million kuna were invested in this phase of the project.

“Health centre will continue to operate as before. It will not be closed”, said Bulić, adding that last year the health centre and the hotel had about 50,000 overnight stays, while about 100,000 visitors came to the pools. They expect similar results this year as well, which will be also marked by an additional investment which will cost about 10 million kuna and include the construction of a camping site and a parking lot with about 800 parking spaces.

In 2014, Sunčane Toplice company has total revenues in the amount of 2.27 million kuna, which just a year later increased to 12.32 million kuna, although it also posted a loss of about 340,000 kuna.
