I stayed here for 16 days. The decor in this sprawling building is simple and perfect with smooth wood, brass details and red accents. The pools, spas, steam rooms, herbal rooms, classes and views are truly special. The hotel has an full sizes underground Turkish Bath!
The restaurants, lounges, grounds and food are truly amazing. The smell of wood, and cloistered luxury paired with the natural setting in the mountains makes this place perfect for families, romantic getaways and total metal rehabilitation. There is something for everyone here. Every weekend there is a cultural event, book readings, opera singers and live music. For the outdoor types there are the massive pools big enough to swim a real lap or to just bob about. High end bicycles to ride, walking trails, an archery room, daily yoga and pilates classes along with a beautiful gym.
Schloss Elmau also has the most well trained staff I have ever come across in my 20+ years of working and living on the road. The kitchen accommodated my colleague's strict vegan no oil diet with ease and hearty innovation. They even gave him a cook book of all of the dishes he liked most! The general manager Nikolia is a true gem.
I'll be back!
