Built to resemble a Medieval castle, the Spa & Wellness Hotel Zámek Lužec is characterised by its hunting chateau style and pristine natural surroundings.
Set in the heart of the Ore Mountains, just a short 15-minute drive from the centre of Karlovy Vary this four star hotel offers noble accommodation designed with kings and queens in mind.
The hotel interiors transfer guest to the era of the Czech King Charles IV— first King of Bohemia, an idealised ruler who is commonly referred to as the father of the country.

Dining at the Spa & Wellness Hotel Zámek Lužec
One of the highlights of the hotel is the 15th century Medieval Pub serving specialty dishes cooked in the Tandoor oven which is a traditional clay oven, that has a sort of beehive shape to concentrate the heat.
The meats are cooked on skewers by either being inserted directly in the oven or over the mouth. We tried the fantastic mixed meat platter with tender chicken, beef and lamb, served on top of a flatbread which is cooked on the side of the oven, accompanied by grilled vegetables such as tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplants and a whole onion and garlic.
The restaurant features both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a line of outdoor gazebos.
The Royal Restaurant completed with dark royal green velvet curtains, hand-painted ceiling and walls, embossed wall coverings and columns serves a selection of Czech and international dishes.
Daily buffet breakfast is served at the Royal Restaurant where guests can enjoy a selection of cold cuts, cheeses, eggs, fresh fruits, baked goods and cereals.
The lobby bar offers both indoor and outdoor seating serving a selection of coffees and drinks. Do try the freshly squeezed fruit juices. They are a great choice for a refreshing break — and healthy too.

There is also a Jacuzzi for two, Roman and Finnish sauna. The Spa is equipped with a modern balneology center, offering a wide selection of traditional and modern treatments. My friends and I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon by the pool, which was much needed after our afternoon trip to Karlovy Vary.
Guests staying at the Spa & Wellness Hotel Zámek Lužec can also enjoy the Lužec natural spring water which flows directly to the hotel and is known for its healing properties. The source is located on the ground floor right next to the Spa center and there is jug provided in every guest room which is used to keep the water and to quench your thurst.
