There are few better ways to relax than with a break at one of Tirol's spa hotels. The region's majestic nature offers the perfect backdrop for a memorable stay in the Heart of the Alps. Published once a year, the Relax Guide showcases the best spa and beauty hotels in the region.
What the Michelin Guide is for restaurants, the Relax Guide is for spa hotels. Each year a team of more than 2,000 intrepid testers visit locations throughout Austria, Germany and Alto Adige (Italy) to award a maximum of four Lilies and 20 Points – an honour bestowed upon three hotels in Tirol for 2020.
The following list presents 20 of the highest-rated spa hotels in Tirol open all year. Though each is unique in its own way, they all offer wonderfully relaxing spa areas with multiple pools, saunas, gyms, massage teams and beauty experts. Activities range from yoga and pilates to meditation and guided walks in the mountains. Lots of the hotels have been run by the same family for generations. Scroll down to find out more.
