Overview of Hotel Tauern Spa

160 Rooms
1.75 hours Transfer time
half board Board basis

If relaxation is key for your ski break then the Hotel Tauern Spa could be the place for you. Not only does it have a 20,000m2 SPA Water World (which the public can also use) it has a Panorama Spa exclusive for hotel guests. This includes the glass skyline pool; the infinity style pool overlooking the mountains you see in almost every promotional picture (it's for hotel guests only).

The 12 pools, 13 saunas and steam rooms, relaxation and treatment rooms as well as the kids' spa grab all the headlines but the hotel offers some additional features that really complete your stay here. Daily re-stocking of the complimentary mini bar (non-alcoholic drinks I'm afraid), WiFi is free throughout the hotel and you don't have to pay for indoor parking. There are three restaurants and, for those fledgeling foodies, head chef Christof Schernthaner offers his culinary tips with show cooking sessions each Thursday, though you will have to book in advance at reception.

The location is a kilometre out of town and you can't walk to the ski lifts, however, the complimentary shuttle bus will take you to and from the slopes each day. It's a small price to pay if you're an avid spa lover.

What we like

- Exclusive 2,500m2 Panorama Spa for hotel guests
- 20,000m2 SPA Water World open to the public
- Show cooking from the head chef is available on Thursdays
- Every room has a balcony or terrace

Worth knowing

- Location is out of town and it's a shuttle bus to the ski slopes
- You can't wear your spa slippers to breakfast
- The panorama spa has a minimum age of 15 years

 

Hotel Tauern Spa in Kaprun, Austria is the perfect ski destination for those who love to relax after a day on the slopes.
