Inspired by the Czech Republic’s therapeutic waters and traditional spa towns, the spectacular spa offers the ultimate rejuvenation experience in one of the world’s top wellness destinations…
Bringing the Czech Republic’s vibrant spa culture to the city’s exquisite Four Seasons address, Four Seasons Hotel Prague has unveiled its new AVA Spa dedicated to local rituals and luxurious pampering with breath-taking views of Prague Castle. Famed for its rejuvenating waters, the Czech Republic is acquiring a mythical status as a global wellness hub, renowned for sumptuous yet effective treatments that draw on decades of spa heritage and one of the country’s most abundant resources – hundreds of natural mineral springs with healing waters.
Deriving its name from the Celtic word for water, the new AVA Spa celebrates the curative power of natural water. Four single treatment rooms pay tribute to popular rivers, including the “Vltava River”, which flows just outside the Spa, in addition to the Morava, Otava and Litava Rivers. Together with a large couples´ suite with a bath, the well-appointed rooms offer AVA Spa visitors stunning views of Prague’s most beautiful sights, such as Prague Castle and Charles Bridge.
In addition to benefitting from rejuvenating treatments, guests can also relax in the sauna, steam bath and vitality pool with a waterfall, massage jets and hydrotherapy beds, surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges and a fireplace creating a truly unwinding atmosphere. A relaxation area provides ample resting space before and after treatments.
“European vacations are incomplete without an authentic spa experience that uplifts the mind and body. When it comes to effective, natural remedies, the Czech Republic is the hot favourite of visitors from around the world with its water-based treatments that are perfect for those interested in all-natural therapy. AVA Spa will be the first spa in Prague to get inspired by the healing properties of hydrotherapy and we are excited to bring ancient traditions from the country’s historical spa towns to the Czech capital. Our signature treatments draw from these traditions to offer even the most discerning spa lovers a wide range of new relaxation, wellness and beauty rituals that promise to refresh, vitalise and energise. Add to this its beautiful location and beautiful design, we believe AVA Spa is nothing short of a historical and cultural treat,” said Claudia Santos, AVA Spa Manager.
Following relaxation therapy at the spa, guests can step outside the Hotel to discover the “city of a hundred spires”, to be inspired by its enchanting mix of Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture. With picture-perfect historical landmarks to visit, a mystical fire-lit journey inside the gothic Karlštejn Castle , private art tours, and much more – a trip to Prague promises to be a magical exploration of Europe’s history and culture. Until March 2017, guests to Four Seasons Hotel Prague can take advantage of AVA Spa Discovery Package to indulge in a local Czech bath experience while enjoying continental breakfast for up to two guests, one treatment from the Thermal Bath menu and luxurious accommodations complete with Four Seasons signature hospitality.
“Thanks to the location and history of Four Seasons Hotel Prague’s building, AVA Spa was a joy to design. We used natural materials, specially designed furnishings and incorporated distinct features from the Hotel, like characteristic ceiling arches, tiling and stencilling. I believe AVA Spa will become a destination for relaxation in Prague, and we are proud to have been able to combine such modern services and amenities with local tradition, something Four Seasons Hotel Prague is already well known for,” said René Beauchamp, General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Prague. “We believe every Spa guest will find a visit to AVA extremely refreshing. “
