o s c o l o S p a & W e l l n e s s a t B o s c o l o P r a g u e [ 38 ] • # dayspamagazine • august 2017 B sc l p elln ess at B sc l ra gu e pened in 2003, Boscolo Prague is part of the Autograph Collection and located in a neoclassical palace that once housed Bohemia's fi rst mortgage bank. Filled with arches and pillars, the fi ve-star hotel's historic cellar is home to a hidden spa gem. "Immediately upon arrival, clients feel a sense of intimacy," says Lenka Jurášková, who handles the hotel's marketing and public relations as an independent contractor. And she's right. When guests emerge from the elevator they're immersed in a warm blue light that permeates the long hallway, bordered with modern fl oor lanterns made of glass. Lighting sets the mood throughout the spa, which caters to 70 percent hotel guests. In the changing rooms, low light and black walls create a distinct atmosphere and a deep sense of privacy. The space was inspired by Roman spas, and includes several treatment rooms, a sauna and steam rooms, plus a 20-meter swimming pool with waterfalls, whirlpools and a mosaic fl oor. From an extensive spa menu, three unique off erings stand out: Morta's Fate (60-90min./$100-$130), therapist-recommended, customized treatments; Body Strategist (90 min./$140), a slimming and body fi rming service; and Paris and Helena (90-120 min./$130-$170), a couples' treatment in which therapists teach partners how to massage one another. I indulged in Fly With Icarus (60-90 min./$90-$125), an intensive head and foot massage that uses refl exology techniques. "The service focuses on stimulating the refl ex points, which is benefi cial for the whole organism," explained my therapist Dita Bohdanecká, who spent a lot of her time on my feet. "During this type of massage, it's best to stimulate the main organs that are most burdened," she added. My treatment over, I found myself parched; right on cue, Bohdanecká off ered me a freshly squeezed juice—the perfect end to a thoroughly satisfying spa experience. u spa hopping COURTESY BOSCOLO HOTELS EFFORTLESS BEAUTY Asian beauty rituals reimagined for you Now available at CosmoProf
