Baths, located at an altitude of 475 m, operating since 1810 due to Prince Cantacuzino, who, at a hunting, discovers some salt water fountains, laying the foundations of future resorts. During the Second World War, the resort is mostly destroyed. In 1948, becomes the property of the state. Since 1953, the activity of the bath shall resume and in 1974 becames a permanent resort.

Since 1993, the Bălţăteşti Resort is taken by the MND, which it modernizes. There are now four hotels offering accommodation and medical services of balneo – physiotherapy and medical rehabilitation through acupuncture procedures, hidro – kinetoterapie in the pool, kinetoterapie in gym, aerosols and external balneo  procedures for degenerative and inflammatory rheumatic disorders, neurological, gynecological, respiratory system and neuroses, also climatic – therapy favored by the atmosphere rich in negative ions in the range of 15 to 18 days, for about 500 patients.

Due to the resort proximity to the Ion Creanga Memorial House, Neamt Fortress, or Văratec, Agapia, Horaita Monasteries, the “Copper Woods” and “Silver Forest”, tourist objectives that are separated by just a few kilometers, people coming to treatment and rest have the opportunity to visit them.
