I went there with my three bridesmaids and we had a blast. The three days were honestly so much fun. We laughed a lot, enjoyed each others company and talked so so much which was really nice cause getting together isn´t as easy when everyone is on a different work schedule and has a partner and other commitments.
Our hotel was called Gourmet Hotel Villa Patriot. It is such a pretty building with a viewing plattform in the front where you could have breakfast or just overlook a part of the city and have a glass of bubbly. The lighting in the evening was really gorgeous and made the building look like a miniature of the white house.
Since we didn´t have a pool but we were offered to use the pool area of another hotel which had not opened to the public yet, we gave it a try and walked over. After about ten minutes (just crossing the parc in front of the hotel and walking by at some sights).
The pool was pretty small but it was enough for the four of us. They also had a hot tub and offered a steam bath. Everything was brand new.
After taking lots of pictures and swimming/relaxing a little we headed back for lunch and coffee.
On our way back we went through the collonnade (this building is from 1827 and the arches and windows are so beautiful). This was the main area of Marienbad in the earlier years where everybody gathered when something happened or when there was a celebration. Like a village square. Also located here is a “Singing” fountain. The fountains plays music at every odd hour.
Walking back trough the parc we found a few booths which had incredible cool accessories. Two of us got a trendy bag/backpack (we had to walk back there and get one more the next day) and also so pretty scarves and sun hats.
The afternoon was spent at a café since the worst thunderstorm I have seen in a while hit us while eating pancakes. Not nice at all.
We got ready at the hotel with a hot shower and some glasses of bubbly to feel back normal. Then we heaed out for dinner.
So first things first. I am NOT recommending this restaurant – headed to the New York Bar Caffé . It might look very modern and nice and yes the food is good but until we got there we almost starved.
First of all they didn´t understand any language than their own. Second of all they forgot half of the stuff we ordered and not only once. Third of all they had way to many insects inside of the restaurant which made enjoying your food really hard.
After the mood dropped we wanted to have a nightcap somewhere so we found a nice little bar close to our restaurant playing the funniest/strangest live music I have ever heard but at least the mood came back and a couple of delicous drinks too.
On the next morning we enjoyed a last breakfast and then headed home (after getting the third backpack) to our loved ones.
It really was such a lovely weekend and I so thankful for my bridesmaids who organized it. I enjoyed talking/laughing/eating/swimming and exploring and they got along so well together wich means the world to me.
As always thanks for stopping by guys. Take care. See you.
