This impressive hotel, part of Relais & Chateaux chain, is situated in Pörtschach a rock toss from the banks of Lake Wörther – so close you might be tempted to take a dive from your window-ledge. If you did you might land in the the hotel’s heated pool -- floating in the lake. This outdoor pool, festooned to an enclosed wooden dock, is filled w/heated lake water. Go a few meters down to find it frigid cold, since the hot water rises, it offers a delight to alternate w/warm surface temps!
While the lake definitely features prominently during a stay, to earn 5-star ratings you've got to take Wellness to the next level: the hotel's 'Rock Spa' (with a total area of 1,100 square metres was created around natural rocks) does just that. The 'Rock Spa' features numerous saunas - Finnish sauna, herbal sauna, outdoor sauna, & a steam room. 'Adventure showers' guarantee refreshing & sensually-animating moments.
Which you'll need after indulging in their uniquely heated IR~Salt Room. Tiled w/heated walls made from Himalayan salt; the room integrates many of the hotel’s spa packages. The positive effects of inhaling precious mineral elements (traces of iodine, magnesium, calcium & potassium) w/each breath, are supremely enhanced by infrared light to add a few body temp. degrees ~ thereby fortifying the immune system.
Schloss Seefels is a dream hotel for water-sports enthusiasts. Yet, those simply looking to relax & enjoy excellent cuisine will certainly feel right at home.
