The Czech Republic is known for its beer and spas, but what happens when both are integrated into one experience? Guests are treated to stimulate and relax senses with a broader approach, and use, of alcohol. The aromatic smell may get the tastebuds juicing for a glass of frothy goodness, but the great news is that you get a chance to drink out of the tap, located an arm’s length away. The next time you want to try something unique in the CR, a beer and wine spa is it.
Chodovar is “Your Beer Wellness Land,” where guests bath in beer. The tub integrates mineral water, beer and ingredients for beer brewing to harmonize function and promote rest and relaxation. The beer baths and massage programs aim for curative effects for the hair, immune system and muscle tension. Sip on beer while you bath in beer in your luxurious tub while staring at the exposed brick wall; it brings a sense of class and style to the normal beer tasting buds.
