It goes without saying that we need to balance our over-busy and rushed life. A vacation focused on wellness is a great way to de-stress and boost our energy levels. But why do we feel the need to travel half way across the world in order to relax? There are a lot of tempting SPA opportunities close to home – with a little research you can plan the perfect weekend escape.

I recently went to test the healing powers of Linsberg Asia Hotel & Spa – a 4-star superior hotel located just 40 km away from Vienna. More than just a getaway, this adults-only spa hotel is an experience to remember.

Relaxation and tranquility comes as standard here!

The Asian interior design, high quality materials and a great love for detail, all based on Feng Shui standards make the holistic concept of Linsberg Asia Hotel & Spa an outstanding innovation in Austria. Best part? The fresh and welcoming resort in Bad Erlach is focused on providing plentiful spa activities and culinary experiences for couples and friends alike.

Wellness & Spa

The Wellness & SPA area covering 15.000 sqm is one of the property’s biggest draws, with several indoor and outdoor pools, treatment rooms, while the Hotel Spa features an awesome Zen meditation garden, a beautiful pool and a reflecting pond. You can easily spend the whole day in the big public spa without ever getting bored. After all, soaking in warm, mineral-rich water stimulates circulatory and lymphatic systems, relieves pain and discomfort, and just feels incredible.

Linsberg Asia is dedicated to complete relaxation and the garden offers secluded spots, like Balinese beds, to hide yourself away with a good book. It’s all about self-indulgence, spiritual and physical renewal here.

Finding Zen at Linsberg Asia

No matter what pools or jacuzzis you’re looking for, you’ll find them here. A spa bag containing towels and comfortable slippers will be handed to you at the reception. And unlike most spas in Austria, Linsberg Asia is remarkably good value.

The indoor pool is connected to the outdoor pool

GOOD TO KNOW: there’s also a state-of-the-art indoor pool reserved only for hotel guests.

The water is heated up to 35°C.

Swimming can be fun but typically it is exhausting. Once you’ve finished your swim, head to the spa and spend time winding down. Professional therapists are on hand to perform many types of massages and treatments. A variety of services are on offer, but highlights are the HOT STONE/YIN YANG and the NUAD THAI massage. However, services like BREUSS massages are also on hand for the more traditional spa-goer. Also, not to be missed are the Bambus Sauna, the Gong Sauna, the Zen Sauna or the Lotus Sauna!

INSIDER TIP: for un unparalleled couple spa experience, opt for the Private Spa Session, you won’t regret it! Four-handed massages? Plush robes? Post-treatment Champagne? Yesss! This is definitely a great spot for romance.

Asian references turn up in unexpected places

Asian Nights

The rooms and suites here have the same Asian style as the rest of the hotel – splashes of colour, sophisticated design, warm ambiance. For a WOW stay, be sure to choose the Lotus Superior Suite – a heaven of calm.

WHAT’S COOL: You’ll find a pillow menu in your room, so feel free to spoil yourself even in your sleep. Your dreams will be so resolutely comfy.

Delicious Eats

Every morning you’ll be treated with incredible goodies including a yummy Miso soup and other Asian delicacies. You can have lunch at the Spa Restaurant, and dinner at China Grill (if you’re on half-board basis). With an innovative menu that presents Asian-fusion dishes, you can expect to sample a variety of flavours from Japan, China and Malaysia. That being the case don’t hold yourself back from new culinary experiences. Besides, if you’re into gourmet Asian food, then the a la carte restaurant das Linsberg is the place to try out –  it’s also a great excuse to pull out your best dress and killer heels.

There’s plenty to do for couples planning a wellness weekend at Linsberg Asia. Get parked on a sunbed, spend lazy days by the pools, and indulge in Asian delicacies – the Asian flair never fails to impress. This spa hotel is a great escape from the hassle of the city, and you’ll return home with a fresher mind and newer thinking. Happy travels!
