Therefore, creating how balneotherapy tourism products specific activities are perceived by consumers and the relationship that they have reported to the sensations that assemble the touristic experience is essential in creating a tourism image. In this sense, a quantitative marketing research was conducted on a sample of 573 young people undergoing university studies in order to know their perception regarding balneotherapy resorts in Romania, analyzing the importance and particularities of each sensation in relation to balneotherapy resorts felt by respondents that differentiate the balneotherapy experience from other touristic experiences.

Keywords: perceptions; sensory marketing in tourism; balneotherapy destination.
