Exquisite Alpine hospitality with fabulous scenery, these members of the Austria Hotel Collection show off their Alpine DNA combining the key elements that make a relaxing retreat in the Alps: pristine mountain landscapes for outdoor enthusiasts, proximity to historic towns like imperial Innsbruck to explore Austria’s rich history, award-winning restaurants that use regional products and stunning luxury spas to unwind.
Exacting alpinists, fastidious families and those looking for relaxation with a hint of exclusivity will all feel at home at Das Central in the heart of the Ötztal Valley. This 5-star hideaway enjoys 50 years of history and has perfected the cordial “Güß Gott” as well as award-winning international cuisine. Fresh mountain air and the 1,500 square metre wellness area gives guests the chance to breathe and completely forget about the day-to-day.
James Bond fans will also be pleased as on top of Gaislachkogel, the only cable car ride from Das Central, is the world’s first cinematic installation dedicated to the world of James Bond. Next door at restaurant Ice Q, James Bond enjoyed his Martini shaken not stirred before he chased villains across the snow in ‘Spectre’.
The highest standard of alpine luxury can be found at the arlberg1800resort, a year-round hideaway tucked 1,800 metres up in the mountains where at its heart stands the 5-star Arlberg Hospiz hotel. Originally built in 1386 as a mountain refuge, the resort not only harbours 17 luxurious chalet suites under one roof but is also home to a new cultural centre with a concert hall, artist’s studio, music studio and exhibition hall offering a year-round art and music program. The arlberg1800 resort is the ultimate cosy hideaway where hospitality has been part of the culture for over 600 years.
Perched in a pristine location where guests can experience breathtaking views, a private sauna and an open fireplace at one of seven new panorama suites, the five-star superior Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol provides an elegant getaway with a magnificent mountain backdrop. Overlooking the Inn Valley, the hotel offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the Tyrolean Alps where a perfect day in the slopes starts with the smell of freshly brewed coffee and homemade bread. This exclusive setting 1,300 metres high gives the hotel it’s distinct advantage: silence and fresh air undisturbed by traffic or city noise just 30 minutes away from Innsbruck.
