Planning a holiday with the children? Time spent with your nearest and dearest brings some wonderful moments, and these will be all the more pleasant if you spend them at a Czech spa or wellness resort. Here you can find the perfect combination of relaxation, pampering for the body and soul and entertainment (and a bit of education) for the children at selected hotels. So come and see what’s on offer.
If you arrive at the famous spa town of Františkovy lázně with kiddies in tow, you could do worse than choose the Spa&Kur Hotel Harvey hotel occupying a tranquil spot surrounded by a forest park. Here the children can enjoy a U-ramp, a sports ground with an artificial surface, a playground for young tots, a kids’ corner and a mini-cinema. On in-line skates you can reach Amerika Lake, where there’s a lovely mini zoo. The hotel restaurant is perfect for family holiday meals, with children’s seats, special tablecloths and a kids’ menu all available.
The ideal setting for a family holiday
Baby friendly. That’s an accurate way of describing the Vega Hotel based in the largest of Moravia’s spa towns, Luhačovice. Here little clients are treated like royalty. At the restaurant there’s everything you need with children in tow, such as high chairs and unbreakable crockery; the cooks will gladly cook up some porridge for breakfast. The rooms are also child friendly with small beds, kid-size baths and changing mats. The young ones will love the children’s corner full of toys, and a play area equipped with climbing frames and a sand pit next to the tanning area of the pool. A pleasant day’s relaxation could be brought to a close with board games borrowed from the reception or your kids’ favourite book. The Luhačovice spa hotel Miramare is also just the thing for holidaying families. Here you’ll find a great combination of beauty and relaxation procedures for the body and soul as well as a babysitting service. While you unwind with a honey detox massage, a weight-reducing seaweed wrap, an anti-cellulite cinnamon wrap or a soothing Cleopatra orange bath, qualified staff will be looking after the children and keeping them entertained.
Discover kiddy heaven on earth!
A break at the wellness hotel Zámek Berchtold in Stránčice u Prahy is a superb experience for any child. The hotel has a Children’s Paradise area set in the surrounding chateau park. At over 70 sites children can meet figures from fairy tales, enter the demons’ domain and visit a gingerbread cottage inhabited by a wicked old woman. One of the best features is a mini zoo dotted with miniatures of Czech castles and palaces. The underground bunker beneath the chateau is where children can enjoy a bit of a scare, as this is home to a three-headed dragon and an evil imp. Are you trying to encourage your offspring to lead an active and healthy lifestyle? Then you’ll certainly find something for them in the range of children’s sport courses available at the wellness hotel Vitality Vendryně. Kids can learn the basics of tennis, horse riding, skiing and other sports such as golf and badminton. For babies the hotel has swimming sessions with a physiotherapist in a special pool. The cherry on the cake could be a visit to a bakery café for some goodies.
Just like in a fairy tale!
Your young ones will feel like they’re in their very own fairy tale during a stay at the hotel Hrubá Skála Chateau in the heart of the Czech Paradise area. On arrival they will be welcomed by a fortune teller, who will play a fairy tale-based game with them throughout their time here. The children will encounter a three-headed dragon, dance with a king and queen and search for buried treasure. You can also expect top-notch service at the Svatá Kateřina Resort in Počátky in the Vysočina Region. Let yourself be pampered with a massage, beauty treatment, aromatic baths and a yoga session, while qualified nannies take care of the kids.
