This last weekend, on June the 15th, the north of Croatia became richer for an oasis of water-based fun- the MartiLandia Aquapark, which was opened at LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin, in Međimurje. The opening ceremony and party brought together all of those who are to thank for going through with this investment, as well as making Terme Sveti Martin one of the greatest “healthness resorts” in Europe.
The investment of over 2.5 million kuna brought to the visitors three new water slides, a standard open, an adrenaline kamikaze and a funnel, as well as the new children’s water playground, and the partners were New Dieresin Contract S.r.l., a leading European company in the field of design, construction and instalation of the water slides and pool equipment from Italy, and the Croatian HJ Projekt company from Mursko Središće.
The Prefect of Međimurje County Matija Posavec said at the opening ceremony that it’s important to aim for something different and new in life and in investments, which then brings results. He added that Sveti Martin brings two thirds of the tourism of Međimurje, and that every development there means the further development of tourism in Međimurje. Sveti Martin municipality head Dražen Crnčec thanked the Terme Sveti Martin team for everything they’re doing for the tourism of the region, which leads to the continuous growth of tourism in the region. It also leads to the growing number of private renters around the Terme, which guarantees a stable future.
Igor Nekić, the managing director of the LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin, said that all of the investments were carefully chosen in order to increase quality, which leads to the increased satisfacion of the guests and better results. Mr. Nekić hopes that the new children’s water playground will mostly attract families with children, as they’re now the aquapark of the highest quality in the north of Croatia, but also the broader region which includes a radius of 150km in Slovenia, Austria, and Hungary.
The new MartiLandia Aquapark mascot is Marti the deer, as there are numerous animals around the area, and many deer, which children enjoy seeing.
Nuša Korotaj, the sales director at Sveti Martin Terme said that the European Spa Award they received last month in the category of ”Innovative Spa Concept” will make them turn their focus even more towards the markets of the German-speaking part of Europe and the Eastern European markets (Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia).
They plan to use their healthness strategy as their selling point on those markets.
