Spa construction in the Austrian Alps promises to create Europe’s largest center for healthy holidays and wellbeing at the Stanglwirt resort, an authentic haven of the good life.
Located in the Austrian Tirol, an easy drive from Munich, Stanglwirt’s new luxury spa, scheduled to open Spring 2015, will complement the existing wellness center. Surrounded by the magnificent Alps, with five-star gourmet dining, a working Lipizzaner riding stable, and an internationally renowned tennis program, this high-end resort caters to families as well as romantic couples.
As of now, Stanglwirt guests enjoy panoramic views of the mountains while relaxing in a spacious sauna that holds up to 40 persons, or a Swiss stone pine sauna for up to 25 persons. Splashing in a waterfall grotto, or swimming in an outdoor pool enhanced with filtered seasalt, you have the option of bathing nude or family style.
Expansion of the Fitness & Well-being facility, scheduled for completion next summer, includes an exclusive new spa, plus an adventure waterworld for children. The expansion already has several superlatives: the largest saltwater pool in Europe, and the only 25 metre sport swimming pool with an OMEGA timekeeping permanent installation.
Designated a “Bio Hotel,” the Stanglwirt was built with wood from the site. Mountain springs supply water for the entire resort. An eco-friendly heat pump system warms the resort.
A fitness and well-being oasis made from local stone with grottos, winding paths, caves, and waterfalls awaits all guests great and small at the Rock Spa of the Stanglwirt. Built of natural stone from nearby hills, the sauna scene with its spruce bio sauna, salt grotto, natural stone sauna, and a rock crystal steam grotto, boasts a seawater aquarium with a coral reef.
The Stanglwirt Fitnessgarden is an adult-only oasis for ndoor fitness, cardio, and strength training, plus outdoor sports programs. Work out on state-of-the-art TechnoGym equipment, Kinesis, and Galileo vibration trainers.
Keeping it in the family
Family owned and operated, the Stanglwirt traces its development from mountain inn to spa over 400 years. The Hauser family’s pioneering role in sustainable tourism was the focus of a preview in New York recently.
Maria Hauser told us about her younger brother Johannes who is a food and beverage specialist, her sister Elisabeth currently working in Switzerland at a Marriott, and brother Richard, a specialist in all matters concerning strategy and structure. Their mother Magdalena, the „soul of the hotel,“ oversees decoration and, as a qualified hiking guide, regularly goes on mountain tours in the summer with Stanglwirt guests, while father Balthasar Hauser oversees it all.
