Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt Spa, Kitzbuhel
The alpine version of zen is hidden in a 400-year-old farm at the foot of Wilder Kaiser. The spa areas are the least impressive. 750 tons of stone from the famous mountain of the area were used to make the large indoor swimming pool-jewel of Stanglwirt, around which spreads a small state with rocks, caves with scents of eucalyptus and pine, romantic chalet woods, waterfalls, gushing springs from the mountain, hammam with several colour effects and jacuzzi next to an aquarium where sharks swim. After a day on the slopes of Hahnenkamm, ideal finale diving in the heated outdoor pool, leaving the gaze submerged in the snow-white.
Vigilius Mountain Spa, Dolomites
In the small town of Lana, in South Tyrol, the Serenity Shelter takes the form of a design hotel made of larch glass and wood, which looks like it hangs from the clouds. Swimming in the impressive indoor pool enclosed in glass walls, you feel hovering over the Dolomites' mountain peaks. The sauna overlooks the pine forest that is lost in the fog of the Adige valley. In the hammam, disco-type lights give those who enjoy the relaxation of the hot steam strange shades. It is impossible to resist a bath with healing herbs, hay and soaked grass that will offer you the ultimate relaxing and refreshing experience.
La Prairie Spa, Le Kilimandjaro, Courchevel
After the descents on the most exclusive slopes of Trois Vallees, the spa with La Prairie's signature seems to be an ideal hideout in the heart of the cosmopolitan Courchevel 1850. The impressive pool area is surrounded by thick stone columns and huge wooden windows extending to the roof and framing the white landscape and the village houses.
In the treatment rooms, the light is produced only through the candle flames, and the caresses treat the whole body of the specialized therapists who turn apres-skiing into art. All these fantastic activities at this resort, you can experience them too, trusting the company of Erna Low, which offers you complete and affordable accommodation packages, as well as all the additional spa services, to recline all the energy and adrenaline acquired during the day on the ski slopes.
Schloss Fuschl Spa, Salzburg
The setting is set in an idyllic location 19km south of the city of Salzburg, next to Lake Fuschl. Here, the ritual first requires boating on the lake or skiing at the nearby Ski Amade resort, and then a total return to the luxury spa of 1,100 sq.m. Large perimeter windows allow light to flood all areas, from the pool to the treatment rooms, while the sound of running water and the scent of vanilla and orange blossom caress the senses. Τhe massage by the lake is a top experience on the hotel's private pier when, of course, the weather allows it.
