The Bio Hotel

The Daily Telegraph referred to the Gartenhotel Theresia as “The
flagship of a new Austria, where tradition meets today in absolute
luxury”. The trendy ecological Theresia boasts elegant rooms and suites
plus an art collection to be proud of. The interior is a designer‘s dream
of space, and style. The hotel caters for all dietry requirements and
takes pride in offering fully organic cuisine to ensure an award winning
“Green Bonnet” culinary experience. Visiting this welcoming family-run
establishment means to consciously live and experience the harmony
of past, present and future. Enhanced by the lively and charming
personalities of the hosts, your visit here will surely be a memorable one.

The Experience

Besides a culinary excursion for spoilt taste buds, there is plenty to do in both summer and winter. During the summer months there is a picturesque, lushious pool to dip into with plenty of sun loungers to top up your tan. The house-own gym and ball court are always available plus there are numerous outdoor activities to be enjoyed. Hiking trails and biking paths start right outside the hotel. And besides the many guided walks on offer, once a week the host will personally take you on a guided tour to a local organic bee keeper or cheese producing mountain farm, which is a perfect opportunity for single travellers to meet other guests if they so wish. All organic products can be sampled and purchased at the hotel. As a partner of Zell am See golf course, you receive 25% off your greenfee at the local 36-hole golf course which is just a 25min drive from the hotel. Alternatively, let the host guide you to discover the impressive art collection. There is simply never a dull moment and the Theresia Joker Card offers many services free of charge such as summer cable cars, hikers' bus, tennis and trekking bike rental. Come winter there are ski safaris and winter walks right on the doorstep with lifts, slopes and in-house *****ski school & rent, which offers private instruction and lessons in groups of 4 - about 8 people.

The Spa

The hotel's Mountain GREEN SPA is simply magnificent. Through the exclusive use of its eco-certified natural premier cosmetic ranges by Annemarie Börlind and its associated medical cosmetic range DadoSens (suitable for those with allergies in particular), the spa offers the very latest in a vast selection of ecological treatment therapies. Alternatively, unwind in the luxury sauna world and the breathtaking water world with 5 well-heated in- and outdoor pools, a beautiful natural swimming pond as well as a kids' pool, all filled with extremely soft, natural, energizing and specially vitalized water from the hotel-own two mountain springs. Spa treatments on offer are numerous and divided into a whole range of expertise, from facials, classical relaxation massages and physiotherapy right down to the use of medical techniques like spinal column therapy, designed to alleviate and prevent individual problems. Relief is achieved through accupressure, relaxation therapy, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and much more. The hotel also offers free relaxation and exercise training.
