Spa treatment, SPA
Windsor Spa Hotel is focused on traditional comprehensive spa treatment using local natural resources – thermo-mineral water and peloids.
What is traditional spa treatment?
The basis of the treatment is a drinking cure and traditional hot mineral baths combined with modern balneological methods such as massage, magnet therapy, electrotherapy and others.
An integral part of the therapy is health education and a special diet under the supervision of a nutritional therapist.

Bath in thermo-mineral pool
Here at the Windsor Hotel, we are returning to the proven traditions of Karlovy Vary spa treatments: bathing in healing thermo-mineral water at a temperature of 36-38 °C.
This is the only pool of its type located within a hotel in the Czech Republic.
Karlovy Vary mineral water has the following beneficial properties:
- boosts the production of bile in the liver and its transport through the bile duct to the duodenum,
- normalises the secretion of stomach juices,
- has a stimulative effect on pancreatic exocrine secretion,
- boosts the activity of digestive enzymes in the duodenum,
- reduces sugar levels in the blood and urine,
- improves acid-base homeostasis in the sense of a slight alkalinisation of the body,
- reduces the level of uric acid in the blood,
- has a diuretic effect,
- and last but not least reduces levels of cholesterol and other fats in the blood.
Composition of Karlovy Vary mineral water
The twelve Karlovy Vary healing springs have almost the same chemical composition. They differ only in temperature (30–72 °C) and the amount of free absorbed carbon dioxide, which affects their pH of between 6.5 – 7.3.
In chemical terms, the water is a hot hydrocarbon-sulfate-chloride-sodium medium carbonated water, 6.5-6.8 g/l, weakly hypotonic.
Since Karlovy Vary mineral water contains a highly concentrated mix of natural substances, it is not suitable for long-term or unregulated consumption. Your daily dosage is recommended by a doctor. Drink before eating, ideally during a walk directly at the springs. A cup of size 2 dl should be drunk over a 3-10 minute period (with minimum break between cups of 5-10 minutes).
