Rivers are enduring pictures of romance while also providing much needed resources to the cities they nourish. Ava is, according to historic studies, the Celtic name for water. To this day it remains part of the names of many Czech rivers, including the Vltava River that flows by the new AVA Spa. Water and Czech Republic’s historical spa traditions have therefore become the theme for the new concept spa at Four Seasons Hotel Prague, boasting breathtaking views of Prague Castle.
AVA Spa by Four Seasons is the epitome of luxury, renewal and beauty. This is where guests will experience an authentic Bohemian spa encounter. Highlights include mineral baths, five large treatment rooms including a couple’s suite, plus two spa baths, a vitality pool, separate steam and sauna rooms, a lounge area, and unique treatment menu provided by three cosmetic lines.
