German term or phrase: Wellnessbereich
It's the area in a hotel where the sauna, pool, steam room is. I think it's a 'false friend' as all the google hits seem to be translations of German websites, so what do we actually use in English speaking countries??

spa
Explanation:
An all-around word that includes the sauna, pool and steam room, even massage. A word that most hotels use as well! Just type "Marriott hotel and spa", "Regent and spa", "Four seasons and spa" and you'll get lots of hits.

neutral  xxxechoecho: but you have cancer wellness centers.Wellness area is part of the Spa.It wouldn't include a strong sauna or a steam bath.A relaxing area, with music, aromatic sauna, closed in salt bath. Like Bonn Therme or Taunus Therme has.
