Do you know how a SPA hotel differs from a WELLNESS hotel? For many, the difference between these terms can be confusing. Let me explain what they mean and why it is important for us at Olympic Palace in Karlovy Vary to be a SPA Hotel.
The term "SPA" has its roots in Latin and means "Sanus Per Aquam" or "health through water". SPA encompasses not only spa treatments, but also a broader concept of care for the body and mind. SPA hotel focuses on providing holistic care through a variety of treatments that include massages, baths, saunas, beauty therapies and more. The aim is to achieve relaxation, regeneration and an overall improvement in guests' condition.
WELLNESS hotel, on the other hand, focuses on the overall well-being of its guests, and offers a wider range of activities. Here, guests can take part in fitness, yoga, meditation and other activities that contribute to the overall improvement of their physical and mental state.
At Olympic Palace in Karlovy Vary, we decided to be a Spa Hotel because we believe in a holistic approach to the care of our guests. Our spa treatments are not just superficial reliefs, but part of a comprehensive program that combines modern medical procedures with traditional methods. We want our guests to experience a true transformation, not only on a physical level but also in a spiritual sense.
In addition, we are proud to offer other elements that promote the health and well-being of our guests. In our Spa Hotel you will find a swimming pool where you can not only refresh yourself, but also strengthen your muscles and improve your cardiovascular fitness. Our saunas then provide the perfect way to relax your muscles, promote detoxification and clear your airways. This entire complex, which includes spa treatments, pools and saunas, is designed to help our guests achieve not only physical improvement but also mental balance.
I hope this extended article has given you a better understanding of the difference between SPA and WELLNESS hotel and why we are the Spa Hotel at the Olympic Palace in Karlovy Vary. We are dedicated to providing you with the best care for your overall health and well-being.
