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