Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad Or Karlsbad) – Treasure Among World Spa Destinations

Carlsbad is the best acknowledged spa city positioned in West Bohemia. It was established about 1350 by the Holy Roman Emperor & King of Bohemia, Charles 4. Its imposing roads & colonnades are surrounded by tranquil forested hills crisscrossed with hiking and cycling ways that are ideal for enjoyable walks all year round.

A full of activity cultural events calendar, several festivals as well as international conferences put up Karlsbad the major and liveliest spa town in the Czech Republic visited not only by the spa-guests but also celebs. Karlsbad achieved its fame also thanks to its known herbal liqueur named Becherovka (nicknamed “The thirteenth Spring”), Mattoni mineral water, unique spa wafers, and Moser crystal work. The remedial mineral water from the springs in the valley of the Tepla River have been used by public from time immemorial – both for consuming as well as bathing.

Double-dip deal at luxurious La Costa resort in Carlsbad

Double-dip deal at luxurious La Costa resort in Carlsbad

La Costa Resort and Spa is offering a kind of double-dip deal just in time for Memorial Day: Take 30% off the regular room rate and receive a $50 resort credit each night when you stay at least two nights. On top of that, the 400-acre pampering zone in Southern California’s Carlsbad also has a full schedule of kid-friendly and other activities planned for the holiday weekend.

The deal: The 30% discount off the resorts published rate is widely available for many room types and dates. The $50 resort credit requires a two-night minimum – so youre guaranteed $100 to spend on spa services, golf, dining or enrolling your children in the Kidtopia club (ages 3 to 12). Stay longer and the credit accrues, to a maximum of four nights ($200).

When: No end date for these deals has been announced, but they are subject to availability.

Tested: Published rates at the resort start at $359 per night. I found rooms at the special $251 rate when I tested this deal online. I easily found a 425-square-foot room with king-size bed for May 29 and 30 on the holiday weekend. (For $265, you can get a room with two queen beds and bring kids younger than 18 for free.) For two nights-with taxes and a $22 resort fee per night tacked on-the tab for the $251 room came to $599.86.

If you are booking online, look for the “Spring Specials” on the website. When you book your room on the website, you can go ahead and “spend” the credit – by adding on a massage or facial, or a round of golf ($99), or registering a child for the Kidtopia club ($50). The credit will be deducted from your hotel bill later.

Note too that the resort has a full schedule of activities for Memorial Day weekend, many of them free for kids: splash landing water slides; face painting and balloon animals; a reptile show, smores at the plaza; a dive-in movie at the pool and more.
