The 5-Star Romantic Getaway That Everyone Should Experience
Our stay at Forsthofgut was so much more than a hotel. It was a 5-star luxurious experience! It was a romantic getaway in Leogang, Austria overlooking the beautiful Alps. When we arrived at the hotel, our name was written in beautiful cursive on a welcome board outside the hotel. We were welcomed with warm hand towels & a glass of Prosecco at the hotel bar. We felt at home immediately.
The breakfast buffet was one of a kind. There is nothing quite like waking up and looking forward to the 5-Star, un-believable food waiting for you downstairs. Get your meat & cheese fix by creating your own charcuterie board. Between waffle bars and omelet stations, assorted fruits & yogurt bars, Forsthofgut has something for every craving. Customize your morning tea with a variety of herbal choices, or head to the champagne station and pour yourself a mimosa from the freshly squeezed orange juice. The breakfast buffet was a culinary experience to say the least.
The relaxation room, also known as the ‘Nap Room’ was one of my favorite rooms in the resort. After a long day of skiing, what better way to end your afternoon then in the relaxation room? Filled with beds, cracklings fires & complete silence. Sit back, relax, take a nap, read a book, or simply enjoy the view. Ps: I still could not get over the fact that there was a room dedicated to napping. BRILLIANT.
Pillows ‘al a cart’
Is it really a 5-Star resort if you can’t pick from a menu of pillows to suit your sleeping style? Browse the menu of pillows, call the front desk & place your order (Complimentary). I slept with a pillow filled with wood shavings (because why not?) & I slept like a baby. Here are your options:
- Feather pillow: with Swiss pine wood shavings
- Pillow “Ceranova”: pillow for allergy sufferers and sensitive/light sleepers
- Pillow “Stone Therapy”: pillow with integrated rose quartz and rock crystals
- Millet pillow
- Neck support pillows
- Side sleeper pillow
- Herbal pillow
What do the hotel rooms look like?
Welcome to your home away from home as contemporary & rustic meet luxury living. Expresso machines for your early mornings & a fully stocked bar for your late nights. Ladies, turn on the built-in wall speaker in the bathroom, put on your favorite song, pour yourself a glass of wine & walk out onto your private wooden balcony.
Forsthofgut is beyond pet friendly. Stella was welcomed with her own food bowls & her very own blanket. For €30/night your four-legged friend can join you during your stay. Forsthofgut even offers a dog treat station, pet magazines, a washing station, walking trails & a customized dinner menu. Stella was living the good life and now has high expectations for our next trip…
This was one of my favorite parts of the trip. If you are an animal lover like myself then take a 5-minute walk up hill to visit the majestic reindeer. Stay a while, enjoy the wild animals, take photos & prepare to get kissed…a lot
A gym with views
It is not hard to find workout motivation in a technology based gym with panoramic views. Each machine has an LED screen that counts each individual rep for you and has a 30-second countdown until when your next set begins. Working out has never been this easy!
After checking into our room, we were offered our own Spa bag for the entire length of our stay which included a spa robe and slippers. Slip into your robe and take the elevator to the third floor to experience the best views on the property. Dive into the refreshing 82 ft long ‘adult only’ pool that is designed to perfection. With refreshing showers and a spacious hot tub, sit back & enjoy the luxurious views. We quickly learned that being naked was mandatory in the sauna and realized Kenny and I were the ONLY ones in bathing suits… maybe I’ll build more courage next year (probably not though). On a more conservative note, head down to the spa and book an appointment. You are on vacation so treat yourself to top notch beauty treatments and massages!
What is for dinner?
Our stay included a 5-course dinner every night. We were assigned the same table throughout our stay with a candle lit meal every night. The salad buffet was equipped with every topping imaginable, a full cheese and meat spread and an olive oil bar. Choose your starters, main dish & desserts from a fixed menu and enjoy the culinary experience. Eat everything & have them roll you back to your room (or the bar, whichever you prefer)
This resort was ABOVE & BEYOND any experience we have ever had. Forsthofgut focuses on the tiniest of details to make sure your stay is nothing short of perfection. If you are looking for a relaxing & romantic once in a lifetime experience, look no further! Get pampered and feel like royalty at Naturhotel Forsthofgut
