Adrenaline, extreme sports and an ethereal atmosphere took over the five-star Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague, which is part of the portfolio of the biggest Czech hotel group, CPI Hotels. The main stars of the traditional party for business partners, which this year was sub-titled the “Extreme party on the wings”, were the pilots from the Red Bull Air Race World Series, Martin Šonka and Petr Kopfstein, and legendary acrobatics pilot Petér Besenyei. The guests included many famous cultural and business personalities.
The climax of the programme was the performance by Bike Trial Czech and World Champion Petr Kraus and a breakdance show by the Best b-boy crew. This year, the party had a charity dimension and through the tombola (raffle) with attractive prizes guests contributed CZK 22,900 to the Kapka naděje Endowment Fund. The symbolic cheque was handed over by the Director of Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague, Veronika Fajčíková, to the president and founder of Kapka naděje, Vendula Pizingerová. Apart from excellent food and drink from the kitchen of the Siddharta Café Restaurant, the guests could also taste exotic insect specialities such as crickets, worms and scorpions. For adrenaline enthusiasts, simulated flights in virtual reality were prepared. The five-star Boutique Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague was opened in 2009 and was the first of the Buddha-Bar Hotels & Resorts chain inspired by the legendary Buddha-Bar experience restaurants brand. It is located in Jakubská Street in the Prague city centre, not far from Old Town Square. It offers accommodation in 35 rooms and 3 luxury suites.
