Discover its history
The word Bania (Banya) comes from the old Hungarian language, in the Podhale dialect, it means an ore mine or a soft hill grown with a forest (oral tradition).
Tourists come to Białka Tatrzańska. They are attracted by the unique, soft climate, the highland hospitality, tradition and culture. And it’s still like years before, nothing has changed.
Karol Dziubasik buys 3,5ha to run a traditional highland farm. And we still follow the tradition which he had started.
Tourists spent summer at Karol’s who set one room at their disposal.
We open the first gastronomy point in Bania. It’s a brand new experience for all of us. And the offer for tourists gets even larger.
The resort hotel Janina is our first big investment. Not an easy one, quite long in truth, but we were still determined to succeed.
Józef Dziubasik remembers: I created it my way. To purchase one from MOSTOSTAL was like… you know… it’s always good to dream. At Bielsko-Białka, I would have been forced to wait five years or so. So I took the matter into my own hands. A rope here, a pillar there, an engine of 11 KW somewhere else, licences, permits, innovations, improvements, it was all me until this device of 350 m long got into action.
New ski facilities opened every year. Białka is slowly becoming a symbol of skiing.
For the time being, it’s one snow cannon by a Polish producer. Its name is NIX.
Where the old stable stood, four new suites and a dining room are built. Changes are coming. Traditional farm buildings become tourist facilities and products.
The company called Supersnow is created. It produces snow canons and snowmaking systems. They love skiing, they love snow and it’s clearly visible. Supersnow is taking more and more steps ahead, introducing a whole dozen of innovations. Today, these orange – blue cannons work in hundreds of ski resorts in Europe and Asia. Supersnow is one of the leaders of the branch.
Resorts located on the eastern slopes of the Gliczarowskie Range - Kotelnica, Bania and Kaniówka introduce an innovative common ski pass.
We build a 3* guest house called Bania. In the first phase, there are 33 rooms available, 17 new rooms and a restaurant follow.
Kotelnica expands its ski offer every year and is now the most modern ski resort in Poland.
We build an inn where skiers could eat and drink something nice. The building burns already before the first opening. Yet, we don’t lose hope and rebuild it.
Supersnow produces its first author snow cannon.
The thermal company opened for this purpose gets permission for the geothermal borehole 2,5km deep and the „thermal” chapter in Bania’s history begins.
We close the old plater lift and build a chairlift to Bania. There are more and more advanced services for skiers available.
We build and open the Bania Thermal Baths, a modern water park supplied with geothermal waters. It’s a longed-for investment, supplementing the tourist offer of Białka and making a brand new perspective for Tourism in the Podhale region.
Right at the slope, with a restaurant, a few rooms and ticket offices. The Green Hut is becoming more and more popular amongst the skiers in Białka.
We build the Bania Hotel. Our first investment offers 97 rooms, 2 restaurants and conference halls. It’s a new chapter in our history, the moment when our future lot starts. A new era, so to say. The path from our first rooms and suites for tourists up to the 4* hotel providing high quality services sets the direction for our development and shows us how to proceed. You never know what tomorrow brings…
After the opening of Hotel Bania **** Thermal & Ski, Paweł Dziubasik took charge of the complex. His mission is developing the family business in complete conformity with tradition and based on modern, and primarily, ecological solutions.
We’re opening our hotel SPA. There are saunas, seven treatment parlours and a hairdresser at your disposal.
We invest in the infrastructure for families. Children get the Mountain Land playroom and a mini-fun park Play Garden. Basing on new infrastructure, we also build an animation programme for children.
Our fusion with Supersnow gives us an extra power! The Ski Resort Bania Ski & Fun is a new brand with new quality.
We start building a new wing of our hotel. There are one hundred new rooms and a modern congress centre available now.
The expansion of Hotel Bania **** Thermal & Ski has made another 100 high-end rooms available to our guests. Both the magnificent Deluxe Suites and the Superior Rooms have been designed with ultimate comfort in mind, with exceptional attention to detail and with respect for the highlander character of the location.
