Premium Spa Care

Hotel guests may seek assistance of a nurse 24 hours a day, they may arrange a consultation with a physician, or request the summoning of a medical council. All our physicians have the required attestations in all fundamental fields of medicine and they have longtime experience in balneology, rehabilitation, as well as physiatrics. 

The physiotherapists are highly skilled in both classic and modern methods of treatment and they are continuously familiarizing with innovations in their field, just as qualified masseurs and spa assistants. 


The number and type of spa procedures prescribed to the hotel guests within comprehensive spa care are always decided by the attending physician who, based on the results of the entry medical examination and laboratory tests, also recommends a suitable diet. In this respect, clients are subsequently attended by a nutrition therapist who may teach them to prepare diet meals themselves, if necessary.


The main objective of the treatment is not to prohibit anything but to encourage the clients to continue in their healthy lifestyle, which, in addition to a balanced diet, also includes sufficient exercise and relaxation to eliminate stress when they return home. Apart from prescribed spa procedures, the hotel guests may purchase additional procedures or above-standard treatment subject to a consultation with their physician.

The Carlsbad treatment method utilises the abundant local natural resources of thermal mineral water, natural gases, and peloids, i.e. mud, peat and bog. It is complemented with curative rehabilitation, physical and motion therapy, medical education and a diet regime. 


It mainly focuses on diseases of the digestive and locomotive system, and on metabolic disorders. Its fundamentals include the drinking cure and the utilisation of thermal mineral water for baths and other procedures. The treatment itself triggers adaptation mechanism inherent in the human body, whereby it gradually reconfigures biorhythms and brings mental relief. Ideally, the overall process should extend over a period from 21 to 28 days, in which case, it brings guaranteed results of a long-term nature.
