If you are looking for a box seat or an unusual place for a relaxing holiday, DAS GERSTL Alpine Retreat is the place for you. In an absolute top location, far away from the urban hustle and bustle, the four-star superior hotel is enthroned on a sun-drenched southern slope above Burgeis. Whether in the restaurant, in the Swiss stone pine relaxation room, in the panorama sauna in the spa area, at the new outdoor pool, in the garden or in all the rooms and suites – everywhere guests have an incomparable view over the Vinschgau Valley to the Ötztal Alps and the Ortler group. The mountain world with all its natural beauty is literally at your feet.
Enjoy nature undisturbed
So that nothing impairs the unique panorama, the car traffic in front of the house was recently removed from the field of vision by a newly built street gallery. From now on, guests can immerse themselves undisturbed in nature. In summer, this can be explored on hiking trails, mountain bike trails and irrigation channels along historic irrigation canals. In winter, perfectly groomed pistes in five nearby ski areas as well as numerous snowshoe hikes and cross-country ski trails invite you to have fun in the snow.
The only question is whether you want to move at all away from the hotel complex. This is a unique oasis of relaxation, wellness and enjoyment that you never really want to leave. After extensive construction work, DAS GERSTL presents itself as a true paradise on earth. The Gerstl family, who own it, not only had the garden and the Venosta spa enlarged, but also added a second year-round heated infinity pool with a view of the Vinschgau mountains and another whirlpool to the outdoor facilities. Together with the indoor infinity pool, guests are offered a wonderful water world at any time of the year and in any weather. If you like, you can also enjoy this in the open air with a unique floating breakfast.
Picturesque oases of calm
In the newly created garden there are also numerous idyllic and discreet places with comfortable loungers and daybeds. Even in autumn you can enjoy doing nothing with pleasant temperatures and a clear mountain view. How about a relaxing couple’s massage in the open air, which immediately gives you a wonderful feeling of lightness?
Exclusive new suites with pool or whirlpool
The range of suites has also become even more exclusive: four elegant, new Garden Suites with a whirlpool on the private terrace and a new, 60 square meter Pool Suite with its own infinity and whirlpool, a large veranda and a private garden form the new box seats for the most beautiful mountain views. The round double beds, which are an eye-catcher in the luxurious suites and – covered with natural cotton – also offer the best conditions for relaxation, are characterized by a high level of comfort.
Focus on regionality
Despite all the spirit of innovation, the hospitable Gerstl family also relies on the tried and tested. This includes, for example, the regional and seasonally oriented cuisine of the house, which sources its products from the surrounding area in order to support the farmers in the valley and to protect the environment with short transport routes. The weekly r30 day, on which only ingredients that come from a maximum radius of thirty kilometers are used in the kitchen, is already a tradition.
The “Dahoam guarantee” (“Home guarantee”) also applies to the in-house cosmetic products, which are made from regional ingredients, as well as to the courteous employees, who almost all come from a radius of just 30 kilometers.
Feel-good atmosphere with style
The regional concept also continues beyond the culinary delights and the spa: building materials come from the area wherever possible and are artistically and traditionally processed by local craftsmen. The result: a dreamlike feel-good atmosphere that can be felt everywhere in the hotel – inside and outside.
