All about the Rest and Relaxation

For many people the rest and relaxation associated with a skiing holiday is every bit as important as the skiing itself. In order to achieve this the accommodation they are staying in must have adequate if not excellent wellness facilities. By wellness facilities we mean a sauna, steam room, spa and swimming pool. Maybe some beauty treatments on offer as well.

Some resorts cater extremely well for such requirements. One of the most popular and well recognised resort that offers these amenities in abundance is Bad Gastein in Austria. It has a huge amount of hotels that are great value for money and give you that R&R you need after a hard day on the slopes.

Bad Gastein shares it’s slopes with Bad Hofgastein, a neighbouring village down the valley. It has a reasonable snow record and it’s runs are ideally suited to intermediate skiers. The skiing area is not massive but coupled with the runs at Bad Hofgastein there is more than enough to keep you entertained for a week or so.

However the main attraction of Bad Gastein is it’s hotels which are reasonably priced and offer great well facilities. Below are some of the best options in both Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein:
