As well as being the home of Snowbombing – the world’s best winter music festival, the picturesque village of Mayrhofen also plays host to one of the most luxurious spas in the Austrian mountains.
The Snowbombing festival will be taking place from the 9th – 15th April ’07 and attracts over 3000 revellers for six glorious days of street parties, DJ’s and bands. This years line up includes the likes of The Young Knives, Sunshine Underground, The Cuban Brothers, Rumblestrips, Kid Carpet, Scratch Perverts, Annie Mac and Guilty Pleasures and many, many more….
On top of the sports and stages that will be at the heart of the festival, Mayrhofen also plays host to 10 decadent spas set in one of the worlds most beautiful locations amongst the breathtaking, awe inspiring Alpine mountains. The Strass Wellness Centre is tucked away in the village and is the ideal way to unwind away from the parties and slopes.
Mayrhofen is one of the worlds’ purest and cleanest environments – a recent study found the tap water was purer and contained more minerals than some of the most famous bottled brands!
The Strass Spa is a haven of peace and recuperation outside the fast paced action of the street parties, stages and sports.
Moroccan themed marble design completes the spacious retreat along with an outdoor meditation Zen garden with panoramic views of the amazing landscape. Named as ‘One of the top Ten Spas in the World’ and a favourite of health guru Carole Caplin, The Strass Spa offers a wide range of facilities and treatments including:
Finish and Bio Sauna
A choice of a 90-degree sauna or the more gentle 70-degree room that works with light therapy to encourage good circulation.
Steam Bath and Inhalation Cave
The Roman steam bath softens the skin & soothes the respiratory system along with the cleansing steam and salt air of the Inhalation cave.
Aromatic inhalation in the Sauna opens and detoxes the pores followed by an intensive Turkish Massage using specialist foam lotions.
Thalasso and Salt Water Pool
Under-water massage and a healing bath to relax and rejuvenate the body, calm the mind and strengthen the immune system.
And on top of all this there is a wide choice of beauty and massage treatments available and those who book to stay at the Mannis Hotel and the Kramerwirt Hotel will have access to rooftop hot tubs with panoramic views of the expansive mountaintops.
Piste and pamper by day, party by night: it doesn’t get better than that!
