Corinthia Hotel Prague has launched a brand-new ‘Beer Spa Package’, inviting guests to stay at the city’s five-star Corinthia hotel and experience a therapy as old as it is unique – the beer spa – at the Beer Spa Bernard. Guests can indulge in unlimited consumption of unpasteurised Beer Bernard during the spa experience (woo hoo!), and will receive complimentary beer cosmetics (shower products) to bring away as souvenirs.
