BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
The Augustinian House in Luhacovice was constructed from 1902–1904. It was developed by architect Vladimír Fischer from Brno according to plans from the Augustinian monastery of St. Thomas in Old Brno.
Saint Thomas is the patron of theologists, healer of back pain and he is often prayed to by young newlyweds seeking a lifetime of matrimonial bliss. Thomas is also the patron saint of architects, builders, surveyors, carpenters, masons, geodesists and stonemasons.
And, fittingly, he's the patron saint of the Augustinian House where his symbol in the form of the letters ST can be found in several locations on the facade. You can also find them incorporated into the hotel's logo.
MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE
Summer holiday planning can often be a dilemma. Luxurious spa resorts for mom and dad are often too boring for the kids, but hotels that cater to children can be a bit too juvenile for the adults to enjoy. Now however, thanks to this new sensational summer offer from Lime&Tonic, the problem is solved!
The Augustinian House Hotel and Spa offers all of the gracious services and amenities you’d expect from one of Moravia’s premiere resorts, yet it keeps things interesting for the kids with a host of family-friendly activities. This unique package welcomes you, a companion and up to two children to a Superior Room or Junior Suite, pending availability. After settling in, you might want to try your hand at mini-golf, badminton, cricket or a host of other games available in the garden. Or treat the kids to the hotel's special "Follow St. Augustine" game that lets them complete special tasks along an adventurous path and get a diploma at the end! All that activity is the perfect way to work up an appetite for the sumptuous and satisfying three-course dinner that’s included each night at the Augustinian’s renowned onsite restaurant. (If you’re there on a Sunday, then you’ll be treated to a delightful five-course tasting menu instead.) Formal dinner not your thing? Then just say the word and you can enjoy a garden barbecue instead!
The next day, after one of your two included buffet breakfasts for the whole family, the fun continues with free entrance to the toy exhibit at the nearby Vizovice Baroque Castle. Back at the hotel, mom & dad might want to take advantage of the three-hour included babysitting time and dash off to the spa where they can enjoy the Summer Augustine Bath — a rejuvenating sanctuary complete with healing music, colours and a tension-taming hydro-massage bath. When the stress is gone, the kids can join in the spa fun as the pool, whirlpool, herbal and Finnish sauna and massage showers are open to all!
It’s a break from the city that will bring the whole family together to create memories that’ll last all summer long! INSIDER TIP: Looking for a great spa stay, but don't want to leave the city? Try thisUrban Spa Escape @ Hilton!
