Live healthy, eat healthier

Sorrento Restaurant
Live healthy, eat healthier

Did you know that tomatoes are a huge store of lycopene and have the ability to block cancer-causing elements? Did you know that rye flour does not have to be whole grain, and that in itself it retains important nutrients? Or that fish reduces blood clotting and thus decreases the likelihood of thrombosis and myocardial infarction? Unfortunately, many health problems and ailments of the human body stems from our ignorance about a healthy and unhealthy lifestyle. That's why the hotel Carlsbad Plaza seeks to effortlessly inform and help its guests with medical awareness.

We strive to heal our dear guests, and we're doing our utmost to improve your overall health. We have integrated a healthy and balanced diet into traditional Karlovy Vary spa treatment and opted for a fundamental change in the concept of the hotel's main buffet restaurant Sorrento Grand buffet.

There is no doubt that this is a change for the better. At the Sorrento our guests will be able to get acquainted with the origin of our food, the suppliers from whom we source the main raw materials and basic components of food, and the form and manner of cooking or allergens found in the meals.

Highly visible labelling on each food item and a special Food Booklet publication, where everything is described in detail, including advice for healthy eating and information on the composition and benefits of individual ingredients is available for our guests. Furthermore, this Booklet introduces healthy technological cooking methods that have a gentler effect on raw materials and thus maintain the greatest part of the essential ingredients found in the food.

We serve you the finest products and dishes that are not only tasty, but also healthy. In cooperation with a Karlovy Vary bakery, we bake a thermal spring bread for you, containing a high percentage of rye flour, which has beneficial effects on the human body. And not only that! We also enhance your health during breakfast at the Sorrento buffet restaurant thanks to BIO boiled eggs and other organic products.

More interesting facts about healthy hotel cusine can be found in our Food Booklet.

Hooray nature!

The Concierge‘s Recommendation 
Hooray nature!

Maybe you‘re visiting Karlovy Vary for the first time, or perhaps you’ve visited us several times already, in any case everyone must be thrilled to see this spa town, famous for its founder the Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV., which celebrates the 700th anniversary of his birth this year, and the many other important, captivated personalities that the town has hosted.

Step into the magical atmosphere of the forests that make up the blanket that surrounds the city and enjoy a magical feeling.
Carlsbad traditional treatment would certainly not be so proclaimed without its healing natural springs and the position of the spa itself. Walking through the countryside has long been an integral part of therapy because it intensifies the effect of healing and induces an optimal mental state. For all lovers of natural beauty and spa visitors the forests around Karlovy Vary are interwoven with many paths and many places to wander, and will undoubtedly leave an imprinted on the heart. Paths attract amorous adventurers and scenic lookouts. Needless to say the effects of the exercise itself is beneficial. Any physical activity has the potential to cause the brain to release endorphins, otherwise known as happiness hormones
The deep forested territory formerly served as an impassable border, and by the end of II. World War was called the Imperial Forest. After the war many names of local places were reclassified in Czech and thus these forests were given a new name. The one that is known to us today is Slavkov Forest. After the war, unfortunately, followed a dark period and Slavkov Forest was completely changed and the region was integrated into a militarised zone. In 1974 it was declared the Slavkov Forest National Nature Reserve and the now protected area covers an area of 606 square kilometers.

Today there are plenty of nature trails around Karlovy Vary from which to choose from. Assistance for trips to the area can also be provided at the hotel Carlsbad Plaza, which offers bicycle rental and arranges Nordic walking or sightseeing trips with a guide.

Happy Birthday - Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the hotel Carlsbad Plaza

Oh how time flies, and this year it is already a whopping 10 years, since the Medical Spa & Wellness Hotel Carlsbad Plaza ***** SUPERIOR boldly opened its doors to its first honored guests.

More than a decade ago, in December 2005, a trial opening of the hotel was organised for the hotelier company Eden Group a.s. at a time of one of the most beautiful Christmas’s in history. Beyond the windows blew snowflakes, which along with the hotel and the entire hotel team welcomed its first clients.

Time quickly passed into 2006, when at the beginning of the year, and in the presence of many celebrities and tourism representatives, a spectacular Gala Opening was held. Excellent food and drinks were served, a band played and guests danced into the early hours, the Gala Opening was indeed a success.

Construction of the hotel began in January 2004 and a mere 23 months later the building in all its glory saw the light and one of the best hotels in Karlovy Vary and Central Europe was born. Few people know that the Carlsbad Plaza hotel was originally supposed to be called Ellen, but fate willed otherwise.

The life of the Hotel Carlsbad Plaza may be reflected in several important milestones:
In 2007, the hotel added a luxury medical center - the Carlsbad Clinic, in the same year the hotel was included in the prestigious alliance of the best hotels in the world "The Leading Hotels of the World".
In the following years, gaining increasing recognition and reputation resulted in the highest possible international certification. Since 2011, the hotel was certified 5 * Superior, which it has repeatedly and successfully defended.
And because the hotel Carlsbad Plaza is always a step ahead, in 2014, it came up with a completely new, unprecedented in Europe, genuine therapeutic concept - Medical Spa Suites, which provide the best comfort for traditional spa treatments.
This year the hotel has prepared another novelty, which is the newly renovated rooms on the seventh floor, the so-called Prestige Club Floor, which is available to our regular guests, Prestige Club cardholders.
Let us move forward to 2016 to the celebration of the hotel‘s 10th birthday, which was held this year on January 22nd, with the participation of the most important people from our business partners, suppliers, and travel agencies. During the evening, full of exquisite delicacies and good drinks, among others, we looked back to the birth of the hotel, a decade ago at the Carlsbad Plaza. Celebrations for the start of yet another successful year, included music, magic, dance performances and prizes for the Top partners.
We firmly believe that we still have a lot of other anniversaries that we can, thanks to you, our guests, celebrate together.

How to properly loose weight

The days are pleasantly lengthening, the sun is beginning to warm up nicely and many of us are surely thinking of sunny summer days spent by the water. Also, you‘ve just thought that you have to look great in a swimsuit? We know how to do it!

And because, as it says: "healthy body, healthy mind" we can make a change. The combination of healthy eating and a sensible dose of movement is the correct way to wait for the coveted figure.

It is important to instill some advice and the weight falls all by itself. Sweetened fizzy drinks are preferably replaced by water, the only liquid able to really stimulate and start your body. Do you sweeten your tea or coffee? Even this rather innocent sweetening harms, rather enjoy the natural non-sweet taste of these drinks. Do not make yourself a prisoner of your own body, stale bread and water are not enough to live on, your body does not want to starve and nor do you. Eat regular meals, 5 times a day, small portions of balanced meals. It is also worthwhile removing wheat bread and dairy products from your diet and limit bad fats and/or replace them with healthy fats.

In practice therefore, don’t munch salty crisps in frunt of your favorite sitcom, better to savour "ordinary nuts." Learn to honor your food, it's not just a necessity that helps you manage everyday life. It's much more, it's a ritual to which it is worthwhile dedicating some time and always enjoy it.

As we mentioned above, a great physique is not just about food, but a combination of proper diet and proper movement and exercise. If you are just beginning an exercise plan, you're primed for a step forward. Include in it the necessary cardio exercises that gradually warms up your body, leads to a state of inertia, effectively burns fat and shapes the physique. The basis of success and absolute necessity is to exercise regularly, if possible several times a week.

And where do you start? The Carlsbad Plaza offers free access to its fitness center, daily from 8.00 am to 22.00 pm to hotel guests. If in the beginning you need advice, you can contact the Spa reception and order a personal trainer who will guide you with experience, and make the beginning easier. So go for it and let the summer begin.
