This spa and hotel in Austria was a complete gamble for me since there were no previous reviews written on tripadvisor. Now that I have visited and spent four days there, I can say that it was a fantastic stay!
I traveled from New York City to Innsbruck, Austria and then took an hour and a half train to Mayrhofen. From there, the hotel van picked me up and took me into the mountains to the hotel. I was immediately greeted with a warm lunch/buffet and a glass of champagne. My room was small, but cozy and had an amazing view of the mountains. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had heated floors.
Since I was really looking to relax on this trip, I booked several spa treatments. I would highly recommend the Ayurvedic Hot Oil Massage and the Basic Facial. After each treatment, I would spend time in The Quiet Room which had heated water beds, lounge chairs, and a fire place. The spa also offers many different saunas, steam rooms, etc. There is also an outdoor whirlpool as well as two tanning beds (€6 for 8 minutes). Americans should remember that the Europeans are sometimes more comfortable without their clothing in the spa.
The hotel also has an amazing indoor/outdoor heated pool. There is nothing like swimming outdoors in the Alps in Austria in the snow!
The food at the hotel is the most amazing food I have ever had on a vacation! The meals are all included in the price of your room. The choices are endless and the lunch buffet is served from 1-5. Everyday, I made sure to try something new. My favorite was to have a mug of hot chocolate and read by one of the fireplaces. The food alone made the trip worthwhile!
The surrounding scenery is almost too much for the eyes to take in. You aren't too far from Hinder Tux, a popular ski resort built on a glacier. I do not ski, but I took the cable car up to the top (as do many people) just to see the expanse of the Austrian Alps.
The hotel visitors are mostly families and couples. The hotel offers an amazing program for children so that their parents can relax all day in the spa. I was there by myself and there maybe one or two other people there alone.
The staff was friendly and gracious. English is not their first language, but I had no problem understanding directions to the glacier. I speak no German but found no problems on my entire trip to Austria.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough! I had an amazing time and will definitely return.
