Slovenian spas boost profits

Slovenian natural health resorts posted sales revenues of SIT 34.6bn (EUR 144.4m) for 2005, with profit at SIT 3bn (EUR 12.5m). The number of overnight stays topped 2.5 million, the association of natural health resorts told the press on Thursday.
The spa hotels hosted over 556,000 guests, of which 55.3% were from abroad. The average occupancy rate at hotels was 62.6%.

The spas last year strengthened their position on the market, as they accounted for a third of all overnight stays in Slovenia, according to Rudi Rumbak, the secretary of the association.

The association represents 15 natural health resorts.
