There are wellness experiences that truly captures the heart. Moments that will leave you speechless and bring smile to your face when remembered. Such thing happened to us during our stay at the 4-star superior Larimar Hotel & Spa located in tranquil Stegersbach.
The wellness hotel derives its name from the light blue-turquoise Caribbean gemstone Larimar, which supports the body’s physical and emotional healing processes. Moreover, all four key design elements of the hotel – earth, fire, water & air – blend together to form a harmonious whole which promotes well-being and serenity.
And Stegersbach is a breeze to get to if you live in Vienna – just one and a half hour drive!
Rooms & Suites
In the elegantly appointed rooms and suites, you’ll find everything you need for a deep sleep along with ample space to spread out. You’ll feel like a king here especially if you book yourself into a SUITE. As it’s all about Larimar’s ability to deliver: its commitment, passion and values, as well as the quality of its management and staff. Noble curtains and drapes, chandeliers and champagne, anyone?
GOOD TO KNOW: Some of the rooms and suites have their own garden area – ideal for vacationing with a dog in the Larimar thermal spa resort! A dog basket for sleeping & resting, a cozy blanket, a food and water bowl, and a little surprise for the dog come as standard in the Garden Rooms.
The Restaurant serves Mediterranean gourmet cuisine, and the dishes are a real treat. You’ll enjoy a generous breakfast buffet with an organic corner, a healthy lunch buffet, the sweet afternoon break with delicious cakes, and a 6-course gourmet dinner. So if you’re looking for maintaining a healthy body weight, then forget dieting and eat regularly. This cuisine awarded with the “Green Toque” has to be enjoyed to the fullest!
Last but not least, the Larimar Vinotheque boasts over 150 exquisite wines, and oenophiles will feel at large at this spa hotel. The bar is where you’ll find the other guests mingling over cocktails, decadent martinis, healthy snacks, and live music late into the night. As if that wasn’t enough, Larimar will surprise you with music-themed evenings like Caribbean Night and Dance Workshops.
The main reason you’ll come to Larimar Hotel & Spa is for the water activities and beautiful pools. Encompassing over 4500 square feet, the wellness oasis boasts everything you would request for in the name of relaxation: 6 pools out of which an indoor infinity pool with heart-stopping views, 7 saunas, one crystal energy room featuring a layer of rock crystal from the Himalayas, and naturally, world-class treatments like Ayurveda, TCM or Thai.
INSIDER TIP: Distinguished by its idyllic and tranquil scenery, Larimar is living evidence that fairytales exist. Be sure to watch the romantic, inspiring and utterly Instagram-able sunset from the THAI garden. Beautiful memories last forever.
And there’s the unique DOG SPA – a heaven for relaxation! The area boasts a 10.000 sq m park complete with a natural swimming pond. There’s no secret, that for dogs who love to swim, playing in the water has many benefits – it provides everything from exercise to invigoration, and a needed release for all that energy dogs have.
There’s also a special dog entrance in the hotel, where you’ll find a dog’s shower, dog shampoo and plenty of fresh towels.
Last but not least, dogs are allowed in the Larimar Lounge, on the Larimar Patio and even on the Golf Course Stegersbach. To top it off, you can order a freshly cooked Dog Menu at the award-winning gourmet restaurant, and even book a Dog Wellness Massage. Brilliant concept, isn’t it?
