Having done 9 full days of travelling, sightseeing and sky high step counts, we thought it was about time to have a more relaxing time on our last full day here in Prague. Originally looking for a spa day, we found that the highest rated spa in Prague was actually a beer spa! There’s just no getting away from it here!
This basically consists of bathing in a bath tub full of beer for half an hour, followed by relaxing on a bed of straw for another half an hour. It seems like madness, but it’s actually proven to be amazingly good for your body, skin and stress levels. The unlimited consumption of beer during your hour in the spa probably helps with that last one a bit! The procedure is based on the use of natural ingredients, materials and classic Czech medical treatments.
After a quick pre drinks in reception, we were welcomed to our private spa room where we were introduced to the concept and our bath tub was filled. The thousand litre whirlpool was filled was beer extracts – varieties of hops, brewers yeast and malt – all mixed with Czech Krusovice Beer and water. She left us to our own devices, beer taps, and even beer bread!
We were left in private for the hour, questioning covered or commando, and after a few minutes, the whirlpool was bubbling away for us. Quite possibly one of the weirdest and greatest things we have ever done, we definitely did feel relaxed and was exactly what we needed. After three glasses of beer and bites of bread, we made our way over to the fireside bed of wheat straw. This absorbs all of the vitamins from the bath.
After an hour, our timer rang and we had 10 minutes to get ready and get out! They recommend that we don’t wash for several hours afterwards in order to achieve maximum affect, even if that does mean having a slight scent on you. It may just be us, or the fact that the smell of beer is normal in these parts, but we thought we both smelt pretty fresh anyway!
To summarise, it was boozy, bizarre and such a great laugh! It may be a one time only thing, but we recommend you give it a go. We hear they have these spas in a few other countries, but it only seems right to do it here in Czech Republic!
