Ing. Sylva Brouková

Hotel manager

Ing. Sylva Brouková is a graduate of the Business Academy and Hospitality Management College and speaks several languages fluently.

For more than 23 years she has seen her professional mission in hospitality and hotel management, and has successfully performed in multiple hotels in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and other countries.
She has gained her valuable experience through work across all hotel departments in different cultures.

Her heart is divided between hospitality and sport. She is an enthusiastic top-level practicing skier and coach of down-hill skiers. This passion of hers allows her to use her talent to motivate and lead other enthusiasts to their ultimate goals, which she has demonstrated in Japan and New Zealand, among others.

Management of the Detox Hotel Villa Ritter is another challenge for her. She was attracted by the interesting and unique concept, which has not yet been practiced in the Czech Republic in this unified form.

She appreciates this lifestyle, its closeness to nature and to one’s self, saying:

Marek Horváth


Marek Horvath has been devoted to the vitarian – raw food – cuisine for more than 5 years. His experience was gained in native Slovakia, in Taiwan and now continues in Karlovy Vary. Raw food lifestyle changed Mark´s view of the world, his life and himself. Healthy lifestyle is his main belief and he itself is on a plant-based, mainly raw food lifestyle. Nature, animals and people are not only inspiration for Mark but also a pleasure. Thai box is favourite regular activity and he found his way to practice yoga in Karlovy Vary. Detox hotel Villa Ritter´s holistic philosophy was the thing that interested him, which connects detoxication with living food.

For our hotel guests I prepare meals just as I would have done for myslef. I am giving a part of me to every meal and the guest will surely know.  I prepare meals with a  secret ingredient – love. 🙂 I would love to show people that raw food is not a diet or an insufficient nourishment. The Raw Food is not only tasty, healthy but it is also a gastronomic experience.

MUDr. Olesia Kovach

Olesia Kovach is working as a physician at Detox hotel Villa Ritter. She has worked for several years in a department where the most important treatment factor was classic medicine. At the time, the modification of one’s lifestyle was the least important. She comments on her experience as follows: “For us to be able to limit the pathogenic mechanisms in the everyday life of a patient, we must be capable of advising him/her on how to avoid harmful factors. For this reason, the Detox hotel Villa Ritter project caught my attention. It offers unusual approaches to the treatment of a patient, which rule out routine procedures and in which a ‘routine’ patient is non-existent. I believe that it is exactly this treatment concept that is worth the effort in the interests of the patient as well as to the benefit of the physician’s professional level.
