Hodonin Spa is one of the youngest spa facilities in the Czech Republic

Hodonin medical spa and resort was first opened in July 1979 and was a part of the Luhačovice Spa organization.

The first attempts to use the iodine-bromine waters in the Hodonin as natural healing sources date back to 1953. It was then that the first experiments were undertaken with hyper thermal iodine baths at a newly opened hospital. Mineral water was piped directly to the hospital by means of a borehole in Lužice and patients were bathed in two heated copper bathtubs in a modernly equipped water treatment ward. Positive results were shown after using iodine water to treat patients with chronic joint illnesses. Senior inpatient consultant, Dr. Jindřich Berka, began a co-operation with professor Přerovský, director of physiatrists, Balneology and the Climatology Research Institute.

In 1956 the Institute began working with the Endocrinological Research Institute in Prague and research on the effects of iodine water was carried out. The first phase of research ended in 1956. It had been concluded that iodobromine water from the outskirts of Hodonín was suitable for therapeutic purposes. In 1971 a 7km long water pipe was installed to syphon the iodobromine brine water, pumped from three geological boreholes in Lužice for balneotherapeutic purposes at the hospital. A belneotherapy suite with eight cabins for mineral bathing was also built at the hospital.

1972 saw the second phase of scientific and clinical research of Hodonín iodine water. In 1973, a branch of the Balneological Research Institute in Mariánské Lázně was founded in Hodonín to analyze the specifics of iodine balneology. In 1975, the results of the research were collected and in 1978 they were published in the extensive study, 'Hodonin Iodine Mineral Water'. This extensive research demonstrated the significant healing effect of the iodobromine brine, particularly for illnesses effecting the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems, and it was this that led to the founding of the spa treatment center in Hodonín.

On 1. 7. 1979, the Czechoslovakian State spa of Luhačovice in Hodonín was opened, equipped with 180 beds. Balneotherapy was undergone at the hospital with other procedures taking place in the spa facilities.

In 1993, the town of Hodonín obtained ownership of the treatment center and thus the independent Hodonín Spa was founded. On 1. 12. 2001 a new and modern balneology center was opened in the spa treatment center.

From 2002 to 2003, renovation and modernization gradually took place on the Vladimir spa building and the spa park. Growing interest in these 'spa facilities in the heart of the South Moravian region' and their quality treatments led to the construction of a new building in 2005, which was finished in October 2006. The new Eva spa building, holding 104 beds and having its own balneotherapy center, reception, accommodation and dining section, congress hall, and additional services (hairdressers and cosmetics salon and café) tends to Hodonín Spa’s customers. The Congress Hall is often used for meetings and for spa cultural and social events.

Currently, the Hodonín Spa treatment complex has two spa buildings named Vladimir and Eva. Along with the Jindřich treatment center and park, the spa forms an interesting architectural feature for the town of Hodonín.

Due to a high level of spa care, staff professionalism, and the quality of its additional services, Hodonín Spa is currently among the most sought-after spa facilities in the Czech Republic. It shows in the honors that Hodonín Spa has received such as a certification from the European Spas Association (ESPA) for infrastructure and safety. Also a certificate of quality from the Association of Hotels and Restaurants in the Czech Republic for providing superior levels of accommodation and additional services that exceed expectations.

Curious about how the spa buildings get their names? The Jindřich treatment center is named after the founder of the spa, Dr. Jindřich Berka. The Vladimir building took its name after Vladimir Žaroský, likewise with Dr. Eva Ševčíková giving name to the newly constructed Eva building.
