An Impressively Luxurious Alpine Paradise

Nestled in the Alpine wonderland of Austria’s western mountain range is the Arlberg region, home to spectacular natural wonders. It was also my home for 3 days, while I stayed in the impressive Hotel Arlmont, just a stone’s throw away from the snowy slopes.

Arriving in this Austrian paradise

Traveling from Moscow (Russia) to Innsbruck (Austria), we then caught a train to St Anton am Arlberg, which is an alpine village and ski resort in the Austrian state of Tyrol.

In fact, St Anton is proud to hold its place as one of the world’s top skiing resorts, so we couldn’t miss a chance to go there.

As soon as we approached the area, we marveled at the breathtaking nature that surrounded us in every direction! I’d previously done my research into the best hotels in St Anton, and the most stylish one stood out as Hotel Arlmont. So that’s where we were headed next. 

We stayed in a double mountain room with a magnificent view of the ski slopes. It was modern and luxurious, while also cozy and comfortable – the perfect combo!

Spectacular spas and relaxation zones 

One of the highlights of staying at Hotel Arlmont was their Mont Spa, which I can confidently claim is one of the best in Austria!

After a long day of shooting down the blue, red and black slopes in St Anton, you definitely need some recovery time. What better way to do this than a top-notch massage and spa treatment.

We were excited to discover that the hotel featured different types of saunas: Finnish sauna, steam bath and a Sanarium.

My favourite had to be the Panoramic Herbal Sauna on the top floor, which boasted incredible views of the evening sun setting over the surrounding mountains.

It’s the perfect place to let go and find some inner peace, in our otherwise busy world.

I also loved the rooftop pool. Jumping into it after the toasty sauna is one of the best feelings!

Refreshing and rejuvenating, the sauna + pool combination is a guaranteed way of helping you unwind after a busy day.

As we continued to explore the hotel, we learnt of its new relaxation zone. It has a small library with ultra-comfy chairs and sofas for reading.

Every evening I spent time there reading and working! I admired the design of the space: a warm, pure color scheme constructed from natural materials, yet still featuring modern aspects and contemporary European artworks.

Cultural culinary delights

We stayed at Hotel Armont with a half board, which meant breakfast and dinner was included.

All meals were served in the top-quality Arlmont restaurant, where we had the pleasure of tasting delicious meals comprised of regional products, with international influences.

Breakfast at Hotel Arlmont

I was blown away by their ability to perfectly combine fragrances, tastes and colors to create wonderful dishes that I adored. Even the waitresses were all so kind to us, we truly felt spoilt by the whole experience!

A dream destination for skiers

Standing on our balcony watching people skiing was undoubtedly a temptation to hit the slopes ourselves.

And we certainly did! St Anton in general is a place which lovers of winter sports rave about. When traveling there in the winter season, you’re presented with a snowy paradise which has a world-wide reputation as having the best ski slopes.

You’ll never be bored, as there are plenty of peaks and skiing mountains of different skill levels to keep you busy from dawn to dusk.

Overall, I’m truly inspired by the hotel and its staff. They provided us with luxury and comfort while maintaining impressive standards of sustainable building and innovative design.
