Therme Geinberg – Oriental timeout in Upper Austria
Sometimes you need just a timeout – a place to come down and forget your busy life. Last week we decided to stay a few days at the Vitalhotel Spa Resort Therme Geinberg in Upper Austria, just near der German Border. We have already seen some pics about that place on Instagram – and so we were very excited about visiting this wonderful hotel & the picturesque spa area.
The check in was just lovely! We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and with the information of a free room-upgrade. Thanks to the reception team – you made our day! Immediately we felt comfortable and welcomed. After checking in, we went up to see our room: We really loved the walk-in closet and from the balcony we enjoyed a wonderful sunrise in the next morning. The rooms are furnished in a tasteful design and with some stylish details. In general all the personal was amazing, heart-warming friendly and always helpful.
What we liked the most
The Oriental World
The Oriental World with its Hamam was definitely one of our highlights while we stayed in Therme Geinberg. A breath-taking beautiful spa-area in oriental design. We felt like being taking back to Marrekesh, everything looks really chic with lots of details and warm colors.
Don´t miss to visit the beautiful Hamam with its warming navel stone and the steaming Serail-bath. With only 4 Euro you will get a peeling glove and a healthy soap to peel your body. Enclosing the Hamam you are invited to take a rest inside the beautiful oriental lounging area and have a lovely cup of apple tea. This sofa area is so relaxing, a perfect place to stay for a while and enjoy.
Also there is a picturesque open courtyard to cool yourself down, inhale some fresh air or make some nice instagram shots 🙂
The public sauna area was really busy when we were there, so we were more than happy that on the rooftop of the Oriental World a quite sauna was installed.
Visiting the Oriental Word is included for hotel guests and open from 9.00 am-8.00 pm.
Thermal pools area
The pools area is really huge, we had the possibility to choose from 5 different pools including thermal, freshwater and saltwater pools, lavish indoor and outdoor thermal pools and a saltwater lagoon. This idyllic water world also host a cocktail bar where you can enjoy tasty cocktails inside the whirlpool 🙂 yummy.
Our favorite was the beautiful cascading thermal pools – a quiet area with a fantastic design and a great view.
An absolute advantage is that hotel guests can use the thermal pools area already from 7.00 am. At that time you will have all the pools by yourself. It was amazing swimming outside in the steaming hot water while the air temperature was -12 degrees.
Breakfast & Dinner at Therme Geinberg
Both of it are first rate! Honestly, we are not the biggest fan of dining inside of hotels. The restaurant of the Vitalhotel Therme Geinberg surprised us a lot: We had been spoiled with an extraordinary fresh, healthy and tasty buffet. We loved the huge desert-bar, included finest cakes and different kinds of creams – so delicious.
When we are traveling we are always early birds – luckily the breakfast always starts at 7.00 in the morning. The buffet has a wide range of different foods to choose from – including fresh egg meals, fresh pancakes, delicious coffee, fruits, the finest hams, Prosecco…everything a breakfast lover`s heart desires. And for all the late risers – it’s open until 12!
