After launching in early February 2024, the new Atmosphere spa has turned Hotel Krallerhof into a luxurious adults-only Alpine retreat and an ideal space for your next couples trip. Not only does it boast a stunning 50-metre-long, heated infinity pool and expansive Kebony wood decking, it’s surrounded by a large natural lake and some of Austria’s most awe-inspiring natural landscapes. The spa is also firmly ahead of the game in terms of futuristic wellbeing-boosting therapies: they include a sub-zero ‘Ice Grotto’, a White Himalayan infra-salt room, as well as a full selection of high-performance and biohacking treatments to help you supercharge your health in style.

This five-star organic farm and wellness hotel has been delighting guests since 1722. Offering Dr. Barbara Sturm facials, endless pools fed by local spring water and Alpine hiking, there’s a little bit of everything to help you rest and recharge. The rooms are a vision too: in cosy chalet quarters, beds are hand-carved from reclaimed Swiss stone pine. Plus, if you want an experience the whole family can enjoy, there’s arguably no better place. With facilities for all ages, a highlight for little ones is the children’s water world, complete with a giant slide.

Surrounded by breathtaking countryside, with a magical lake and fabulous mountain scenery, there is nowhere else we’d rather be for a hard-core detox than Vivamayr’s Swiss outpost. Here, recovery and relaxation are the order of the day but you can also get impressive weight loss results. Most guests stay for three weeks, but a week-long jaunt will render you euphoric with (actually) delicious vegetable broth, effective seaweed body wraps, yoga, and oxygen tank sessions on offer.

Lanserhof is at the forefront of the medi-spa and longevity movement and this, its original retreat, still holds ultimate allure thanks to mesmerising architecture and mountain or forest backdrops from every angle. The charming facility takes a three-pronged approach to wellness with detoxification, purification, and deacidification programmes supported by truly top-notch facilities and expert practitioners who will shape your experience through personalised testing and consultation. Be prepared to practically float out.

Already considered an über-stylish ski resort, the spa here is the crown jewel, making Das Central the must-visit destination for well-heeled skiers looking to relax tired muscles after a day on the slopes. Spread over three impressive stories, you can enjoy no fewer than ten saunas and steam baths to detoxify and rejuvenate your body from head to toe, as well as whirlpools and a heated indoor pool. As you would expect, the relaxation lounges and conservatory all make best use of the mountain views too, but do tear yourself away for a treatment – they use high-quality natural cosmetics by Alpienne made in the nearby Pitztal Valley.

At Naturhotel Forsthofgut you are truly cocooned by nature, whether enjoying mesmeric views of the wild game park, relaxing in the whirlpool at the edge of the forest, or enjoying the fresh Alpine scent in the air around the Leogang Rocky Mountains. Spend your day hopping between the wood-clad series of saunas, pools, soothing steam baths, and relaxation rooms and you will quickly feel your stresses unfurl from your shoulders, with both child-friendly and adult-only areas allowing you to tailor and perfect your stay with ease.

Owned by the impossibly elegant Susanne Kaufmann (the hotel has been in her family since 1850), Hotel Post is home to a super whizzy spa, which is perhaps not surprising considering Kaufmann’s award-winning skincare and bodycare range is all about supercharging your relaxation. In fact, this is where her product line was born and you can expect exceptional massages and facials that leave skin with an impossible glow – all with a view over the beautiful Austrian countryside. Don’t be surprise to see cows grazing as you look out from your window.
