theWhen the snowy splendor of the Alps meets first-class wellness, a magical place called Zell am See is born. Best known for its exceptionally beautiful location, the winter sports and ski resort impresses with snow-draped peaks harmonize with the glistening lake, creating a breathtaking natural interplay. The Elements Resort Zell am See, BW Signature Collection, which emerged as a true oasis of relaxation, rises up in the midst of this wintry panorama. It’s the perfect combination of luxury and winter charm.
Rooms at the Elements Resort Zell am See
Whether you’re a couple, a single traveler or a group of friends, the resort offers a wide range of room sizes accommodating up to nine people. The rooms, adorned with Rituals care products, offer an experience that truly reflects your money’s worth.
Every room exudes a homely and cozy feeling as soon as you enter. In short: “hyggelig”. The stylish and inviting furnishings not only serve to enhance the overall comfort but also pay homage to the picturesque alpine location and its surroundings. Relaxation is definitely a top priority here and I was able to start every day refreshed and relaxed!
Wellness area at the Elements Resort Zell am See
The resort’s wellness area is undoubtedly one of the highlights, or rather the centerpiece for those seeking relaxation. I found myself immersed in a world of relaxation, where the stresses of my everyday worries melted away within mere minutes.
I couldn’t wait to try out the different saunas and was particularly impressed by the herbal sauna. The slightly milder temperatures make it an ideal choice for sauna beginners. For those among you who are well-versed in the sauna experience, the Elements Resort offers a familiar haven, whether it be in the comforting embrace of the Finnish sauna or the soothing ambiance of the infrared cabin, which, incidentally, worked wonders in alleviating my tensions.
After the challenging temperatures, I made myself comfortable on a sun lounger in the relaxation room and allowed my mind to freely wander. As you leave your phone and valuables in the lockers in the changing room, there are no messages or calls to disturb your relaxation.
Heated outdoor pool
While there may not be an indoor pool, the outdoor pool at the resort proves that one is hardly needed. The view of the picturesque mountain scenery, the crisp, cold air against the soothing warmth of the water are a perfect combination! Accessible throughout the year, this outdoor pool emerged as my personal highlight, providing an enchanting experience that transcends the seasons.
For those inclined towards more dynamic activities, the hotel’s compact fitness area is at your disposal. Although I initially found it challenging to focus on the treadmill with the allure of the attractive relaxation loungers, the transparent glass front allowed for a continuous connection with the outside world.
As a reward for the physical work, I treated myself with a soothing massage afterwards. A post-activity treat that, while not included in the initial booking price, proved to be an investment well worth making. In any case, it elevated my overall sense of well-being.
Culinary delights at the Elements Resort Zell am See
Included breakfast buffet
Starting the day is a joy at the Elements Resort, with a tempting breakfast buffet included in the stay. Despite the reluctance to leave the warm embrace of the soft bed, the rich and varied selection, available from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., enticed me each morning. The breakfast spread ensured a delightful beginning to the day. It offered freshly prepared hot dishes like scrambled eggs or omelettes.
Restaurant with wood-fired oven
I had booked half board and had the option of choosing between two 4-course menus or the pizza menu for dinner. Having sampled both options, I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed either time! The standout, however, was the pizza, expertly baked in the hotel’s own wood-fired oven—an absolute culinary delight with the added bonus of an enchanting view of the mountain panorama.
