Alpine indulgence at the Bergland

Ever wanted to take your nanny along on a luxury spa holiday in the Alps?

Hotel Bergland, Soelden, Austria

A sheikh who frequently visits Sölden with his family does. And he likes for his nanny to be comfortable as well. So the newly refurbished Hotel Bergland custom designed a 212m² suite, comprising three bedrooms – one for mum and dad, one for the children – and one for nanny, all with separate baths and large panorama balconies overlooking Ötztal.

Nanny’s room – might not be such a bad job…

It’s also possible for a group of friends to rent the large, comfortable suite. EUR 1200 per night is a bit of a splurge – but when divided by six it isn’t so bad.

The Bergland also offers simpler, yet spacious double rooms – more than adequate, I’d say – at an affordable EUR 140 per night. All prices include a sumptuous breakfast buffet, gourmet dinners, free use of all facilities, and even participating in guided hikes, bike rides, skiing, ice climbing, etc.

The fabulous SkySpa is a whopping 1700 m² and offers all kinds of exercise and beauty regimens. Pure indulgence.

Treatment rooms are named for natural elements – earth, water, crystal, air, mountain, fire, energy – all with different forms of massage on offer.

There’s even a pleasant Raum der Stille, Room of Silence – with rows of hay beds where people mostly go to sleep.

Everywhere in the spa you’ll have fabulous mountain views.

Who needs TVs on their exercise bikes?

I was interested to see free-standing bath tubs in the bed rooms, a common feature in many Alpine spa hotels these days, we were told. What do you think? Strange? Sexy? Both?

Disclosure: I was in Ötztal as a guest of the Austrian Tourist Board. As always, all opinions are my own.

    I knew I chose the wrong job, I should have chosen to be a nanny… Such a structure at 140€ is not huge, if dinner is even included, along with all other facilities, it’s quite affordable. Beautiful views!

    I’m drawn to that room of silence. The color scheme looks so calm and relaxing. Hay beds, you said?

    • Anne-Sophie Redisch 3 October 2011 2201 #

      @Kim – Yes. the mattresses are filled with locally grown hay and essential oils. A bit unusual at first, then very pleasant and relaxing.

    I’d love to work out in that gym. And then maybe go for a run in the hills, too. The bath… sexy. Definitely.

    I would love for my bedroom to look like that! The photo of the church/village is amazing.

    With decor like that it is tempting to take up skiing.

    I am not sure if I like the have a tube right near my bed….a little too exotic?

    But I do love the overall interior design and the furniture. Makes winter feel a bit warmer there.

    I’ve never thought about taking my nanny to a luxurious spa holiday, but now I may have to consider the idea of becoming a nanny. 🙂

    Love the open layout of the place. The rooms have so much ” character”. It is beautiful. Love the mountain views. Bathtub in bedroom, OK. Bathroom in bedroom, not so much!

    • Anne-Sophie Redisch 6 October 2011 2012 #

      @GreenBeautyGirl – haha, I agree.

    Thanks for commenting, everyone. Much appreciated 🙂

    Looks lovely, but I’m not sure about the free standing bathtub, wouldn’t water get everywhere? Maybe I’m just too practical.

    Hmm… not sure if I’m a fan of the bath tub in the middle of the bedroom concept! It’s nice that you can watch TV while in the bathtub though!

    @Laurel – Yeah, I tend to view things from the practical side as well. But as long as I’m not the one who has to clean up…
    @Ron – I can picture you skipping about with Maria out there 🙂
    @Klara – It really was a beautiful, well thought-out hotel
    @Shirlene – A bit unusual, isn’t it? I’d give it a try, though…

    This looks like such a fabulous place and the view is spectacular! I love Austria.

    @Sabina – So do I! Austria was the first country I visited on my own (well, without my family). I was 15 then, and still have such great memories from that holiday, so Austria will always be special to me.
