Alps2Alps choice: TOP 3 spa retreats in the Alps
Spring is the best time to renew and rejuvenate your body and soul for the upcoming summer season so it’s time for vacation! You can still ski in March and April and yet enjoy the nature’s awakening, but, we know, skiing probably isn’t the first thing on your mind when it comes to relaxing vacation. But what if we told you that you can have it all – an active day on the slopes, breathtaking views, bit of greenery peeking out, fresh air and a relaxing massage or swim at the end of your day. Sounds like a dream? It’s not! It’s one of the top 3 best spa retreats in the Alps only one flight away. Pick your favorite and pack your bags!
Hotel Aurelio Lech
It is very hard to choose the best spa in Austria because it offers countless tempting places to go, but we decided that you have to try the fancy ski-in ski-out Hotel Aurelio Lech in the exclusive resort of Lech am Arlberg. It has 14 bedrooms and 5 suites and a feel of a private chalet. The hotel itself may be small, but its spa is huge – two beautiful indoor swimming pools, a meditation room with an open fire, a thermal suite with classic and herbal saunas, an aroma steam bath, herbal/floral baths, a Jacuzzi, a multi-sensory shower, ice pools and a snow atrium. Doesn’t it sound like a heaven? Feel like a five star celebrity in this five star spa!
If you are not a spa person but still feel a need of a good massage, you’re welcome to experience a mobile spa and massage services in Chamonix and other areas of the Mont Blanc Valley such as Les Houches, Les Bossons, Praz, Le Lavancher provided by the best massage therapists in the area. They are professional and friendly and will make you leave all the problems behind the door. But the most important thing is that they can fix almost any problem after injury. Read the reviews about them and you’ll see that their services are highly recommended!
Similar story is about Switzerland – the wide range of spas is almost overwhelming, but we are sticking to one of our favorites, the Burgerbad Thermal Centre in Leukerbad. It is located 1,400m above sea level and has its own rock grotto, from which the thermal water at 43 degrees celsius is channeled in the spa. There are waterfalls, jacuzzis, indoor pools, outdoor pools, whirlpools and massage jets. All of it make this place extremely popular with families with children. The spa area is a real treat for adults – it includes a whole range of treatments and massages. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, it may not be the best place to go, but if you have kids or don’t mind a lot going on then this is the right choice!
Whether you’re going with your significant other, friends or family, there are many choices of spa retreats in the Alps and everyone can find the most suitable place to go. Discover the benefits of a spa on your ski holiday and return home as new you!
