If you’re headed to Wörthersee and not sure where to rest your head at night, then the BALANCE 4-Elements SPA & GOLF Hotel should be on your hit list. Besides, there is so much beauty and calmness on display in Pörtschach am Wörthersee, and it’s just waiting to be uncovered.
The moment you step through the doors at the 4-star superior BALANCE 4-Elements SPA & GOLF Hotel, you become aware that you are entering an environment made exclusively for deep relaxation and pampering. The hotel’s philosophy is based on four elements – fire, water, earth and air – and this wellness oasis is designed for families as much as individuals, for spa fans as well as those seeking chill time by the lake. So keep scrolling to see how incredible this spa hotel is and find out how I’ve enjoyed Advent here!
Wellness & Spa
Well, to say I enjoy a day at the spa would be an understatement. I live for long spa days and for me a trip isn’t complete without at least a day spent at the hotel’s spa. And this hotel features perhaps one of the best nature-inspired spas in Carinthia. The absolute WOW factor here is the outdoor pool which makes this place a sensual affair.
The Elements SPA & WELLNESS area covers 2000 sq m boasting a 23 m-long indoor & outdoor infinity pool complete with a jacuzzi, 5 saunas including a gorgeous RASUL steam bath, 4 relaxation rooms, and a well-equipped fitness area. In short, a focus on design and modernity runs throughout the whole experience.
When it comes to body treatments, there are many incredible options to choose from such as the Body-Slim Phytomer treatment (120 pampering minutes/€ 135.-) or the FIRE – Rose Oil Milk Bath (30 silky minutes/€ 35.-). However, the Balance-Harmony treatment (90 bliss minutes/€ 105.-) is a MUST for every avid spa-goer. The receptionists at the front desk are happy to help you plan your day, book your treatments and provide really handy directions. Nothing feels too much trouble.
INSIDER TIP: the wellness area features one Alpin Private SPA, and a Balance Private SPA – be sure to test both of them.
This is certainly what sets this hotel apart from other wellness hotels in the area – their famous excellence in cuisine. The host – Chef Andrea Grossmann (World Cook Book Award) – is a passionate gourmet fooder, having a keen understanding of nutritional balance. All meals are a work of art, both visually and in flavour. And the kitchen staff goes above and beyond to exceed all of your expectations.
The gourmet restaurant „la balance“, the 4 E’s Bar & Lounge, an idyllic place for late night chats with friends, and Lissis Bistro are perfect for indulging in Carinthian delicacies. With keen attention to detail, „la balance“ checks all the boxes when it comes to yummilicious food. Best part? Food is naturally treated with respect and passion here.
GOOD TO KNOW: The hotel offers a Reflux Balance and a Metabolic Balance package developed by Prof. Dr. Martin Riegler and Chef Andrea Grossmann. Click here for more information. To top it off, the host runs Cooking Classes for foodies.
Making a promise is sometimes hard – but trust me here, this hotel has one of the best cuisines in Carinthia, with delicious meals guaranteed!
If you’re like me, you look for a few things when it comes to accommodation – ultra clean rooms, modern bathrooms, and gorgeous views from the balcony. And probably the final deciding factor that trumps all others – attention to design.
The BALANCE Hotel offers a mix of accommodation options including guest rooms, suites, and apartments. In addition, coziness subtly reigns here – the Superior Lake Suite boasts a bed you’ll fantasize about diving into after a long SPA day.
To Dos While You’Re Here
At a hotel as comfortable as the BALANCE SPA & GOLF Hotel it’s hard to justify leaving the hotel grounds, but when the Christmas market opens, you’ll find that you’ll be in the best hands for discovering a true taste of Carinthian culture.
All things considered, anyone who loves the great outdoors is going to be in their element here. Hiking, cycling, boating or golfing at Hofgolfplatz in Moosburg – there are so many activities you can choose from.
