AT LAST, THE STANGLWIRT IS BACK!
For us, 29th of May 2020 was a day of celebration, because that's when we finally got to open the doors once again to our Green Spa Resort.
Even though we are still not allowed to welcome you with open arms, we are truly looking forward to seeing you again and to offering you a holiday amidst the wide open spaces of our well-being resort, where you can feel "at home at the Stanglwirt".
So that we can continue to live up to our inimitable standards of responsibility, we have used this time to further intensify what were already the most rigorous health and safety measures – without compromising the well-being of our guests and staff in the process. Our generously spacious accommodation thus ensures that you can maintain a comfortable social distance from other guests, as well as enjoy a wide variety of options for taking part in sporting activities, or simply relaxing.
With hospitality accommodation extending over some 120,000 m2, even at full capacity with 400 guests, the Stanglwirt can still guarantee a space of 300 m2 for you alone to enjoy. So nothing stands in the way of you being able to take as much time out as you need from the stresses of day-to-day life. In our 12,000 m2 wellness worlds, as well as relaxation, you can look forward to plenty of space and generously-sized dining areas in our restaurants, giving you a choice of six different dining settings, all with plenty of space to enjoy our culinary delights. The natural beauty of our surroundings will also tempt you to explore many of the wonderful places in and around the Stanglwirt.
We have therefore made every effort to ensure your safety, health and well-being, even if we are currently having to acclimatise to a few new rules that we have to observe when we meet and greet each other. Some of the changes that you need to be aware of are detailed here:
BOOKING & ARRIVAL
Shorter cancellation period
Even though we feel confident about current developments, the past few weeks have shown that situations can change very quickly. For this reason, we will be offering you a shorter period of cancellation for holidays. For further questions please don´t hesitate to contact us at any time under +4353582000 or email@example.com.
A plan for pleasure
Before you arrive, not only will you be looking forward to your holiday, but you will also be able to plan your stay down to the last detail. To help you do this, we shall send you an e-mail asking you to specify your preferred reservation times for dinner together with your booking confirmation. This will help us to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Remember to pack your face mask
When packing your swimming costume and sunglasses, remember to bring a face covering that covers your nose and mouth. However, should you forget this season's "must have", we will be selling reusable masks in the Stangl-Shop.
Our special Stanglwirt welcome
A warm welcome awaits you at the Stanglwirt. However, for the time being, we will avoid any handshaking. We'll also leave hugging for later. But rest assured: we are very much looking forward to seeing you!
Your room will be available from 3 p.m. Please note that, due to the current situation, we are unable to offer any early check-in or late check-out service.
Arriving by car
If you are travelling by car, we would ask that you kindly follow the Kaiserweg (towards Prama) until you reach the hotel reception or you can drive straight into our underground car park and leave your car in one of the available parking spaces. In light of recent events, we regret that we are unable to offer a parking assistance service or valet parking. Nevertheless, our bell boys naturally remain at your service to carry your luggage from your car to your room and vice versa.
In the spirit of mutual consideration and vitally important cooperation, please keep to our check-out time and vacate your room by 11.00 a.m. to ensure the appropriate cleaning and disinfecting intervals for all our guests. Late check-outs cannot be guaranteed at present.
We would kindly inform you that, owing to current restrictions on the number of people, our wellness worlds may not be used after the check-out time of 11 a.m. on the day of your departure. Thank you very much for your understanding!
HYGIENE & SAFETY
Clean conditions have always been a must for us. We are currently continuing with our thorough cleaning and disinfection of all areas and surfaces, using cleaning agents containing disinfectants, in accordance with the latest hygiene standards. The cleaning concept devised for us by Hollu involves increasing the number of cleaning and disinfecting intervals to ensure we look after all our guests and staff.
For clean hands
As it is not always possible to wash your hands wherever you go, a number of hand sanitiser dispensers are provided for guests in the hotel.
New indoor screens
Wherever there is a desk or counter where guests and staff come face-to-face, a protective screen has been installed to reinforce our guests' feeling of safety.
A clean room
Hygiene has always been a high priority for us. All rooms are thoroughly cleaned every day using cleaning agents containing disinfectants, in accordance with the latest hygiene standards.
You are welcome to choose whether or not to take advantage of our daily turndown service in your room. If, for the time being, you would rather our room maids did not come to freshen your room in the evening, please let us know as soon as you check in.
Working with face masks or full-face shields
For your safety, all our staff will be wearing a face mask or full-face shields. You will still be able to see their genuine smiles from their eyes.
WELLNESS, SPA & BEAUTY
Even though there is no possibility of viruses being transmitted through the water in our pools, we have deep-cleaned all the pools in our water worlds and filled them with fresh water from the Stanglwirt's very own spring. Whilst you can expect some new standards in our wellness area, none of them will get in the way of your relaxation.
Please keep a safe distance
Whether in the sauna or in the pool, please keep a distance of at least 1 metre away from other guests. The great thing is that, with our wellness world covering 12,000 m2, keeping your distance is very easy. If you have any questions, our pool attendant will be happy to help you.
Specific rules on social distancing
We would ask you to maintain social distancing of at least 1 metre in all lounge and relaxation areas, saunas, warm-air rooms and steam rooms, and in treated and chlorinated pools. Our natural bathing pond is not chlorinated. Therefore, any guests bathing in it should maintain an increased social distance of 3 to 4 metres. There may be brief moments when recommended minimum distances are breached.
In the reception area for the water worlds or saunas and in all washing and toilet facilities, including showers, swimming pools and wet rooms, there is naturally no need to wear a face covering.
We also appeal to your sense of self responsibility here and ask you to maintain sufficient distance (min. 1 metre) between other guests.
Sauna & steam bath
At present, in keeping with statutory provisions, the obligatory wafting process is not allowed in our sauna facilities. Apart from that, there is nothing to stop you enjoying a sauna. Daily between 02.30 and 06.00 p.m. we will add some fragrance oil in the saunas.
In front of every sauna/steam bath, there is information about the maximum number of people who can visit at any one time, and we ask that you keep to this number. Here too, please make sure that you comply with social distancing by remaining the minimum distance (at least 1 metre) away from other visitors – obviously you do not have to wear a face mask when taking a sauna. We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to pay a supplement to book a private sauna infusion treatment for you and your family.
In the pools
In front of every pool, there is information about the maximum number of people who can visit at any one time, and we ask that you keep to this number. Here too, please make sure that you comply with social distancing by remaining the minimum distance (at least 1 metre/in the natural swimming lake 3-4 metres) away from other visitors. Apart from that, there is nothing to stop you enjoying a swim. Obviously you do not have to wear a face mask in the water either.
Massage & beauty
Massage, beauty and hairdressing services are possible without restriction and will be performed in our 15 spacious treatment suites and our hairdressing salon in the usual professional and multiple award-winning manner, in strict compliance with safety and hygiene measures, every day from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.
If you want to arrange an appointment, feel free to contact our SPA team unter +4353582000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We kindly ask you to wear your face mask during SPA treatments or at the hairdresser!
Thank you for your support & understanding!
As well as our rigorous compliance with all safety and hygiene provisions, one thing is certain: you can always enjoy a delicious meal in all of our restaurants.
Clean and tasty
Hygiene and cleanliness has always been the first thing on the menu in all our restaurants and kitchens. For this reason, all dishes will be served by waiters wearing a face mask/visor. We would also ask you to maintain sufficient distance (min. 1 metre) from other guests at buffets and when seated. In addition, we kindly ask you to wear your mask at the buffet an in all public areas at the hotel.
Enjoy the outdoors
When the weather permits, you can take advantage of our spacious outdoor eating areas and terraces to enjoy your breakfast, lunch or evening meal whenever you choose. Drink in the fresh air and take in the beautiful views, whilst maintaining sufficient social distance from other guests.
For a relaxed start to the day
Of course, you can enjoy the full extent of our Stanglwirt breakfast buffet as usual between 7.30 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. The need to maintain social distancing, means that you may have to wait a long time before being allocated a table, so we recommend breakfasting outside peak times (9.30 a.m. - 10.30 a.m.).
The newest regulation of the Austrian Federal Government says
that masks have to be worn in all stores, all public authorities and in all public transportation.
We kindly ask you to wear your masks at the buffet, during SPA-treatments and in all public areas at the hotel.
The comfort of your room
We would like to recommend our room service, which is available daily until 10.00 p.m. to pamper you with fresh meals. If required, these can also be left outside your door and collected again, contact-free. We have created a new menu for this.
From now on, your bill can be written to your total account securely and conveniently with your room card, so we ask that you take good care of your room card and do not swap it or lose it.
In all our restaurants, the menus are now available in digital format. All you need is an app, which you can use to scan QR codes, whereupon all the information will be conveniently displayed on your smartphone. The app is not necessary for iOS devices, as you can simply use your camera.
Meetings & EVENTS
Our events team is on hand to help you plan any meetings or gatherings.
The newest regulation of the Austrian Federal Government says that indoor events without assigned seats up to 50 people are permitted.
Events include cultural events, sporting events, weddings, funerals, film screenings, exhibitions, openings, conferences, extracurricular educational activities and youth work, training, education and continuing professional development.
If you have any questions on specific requirements and provisions, please contact our events team by
e-mail: email@example.com or call +43 5358 2000-979.
SPORTS & FITNESS
We are all being advised to "go outdoors!". We are therefore continuing to develop our outdoor fitness programme and will continue to keep you informed of current changes. However, if you prefer indoor sporting activities, then please comply with the current safety regulations. Despite access restrictions, you can always make use of the Stanglwirt's appealing indoor fitness facilities.
You can enjoy unrestricted access to our eight outdoor courts and six indoor courts. The only restriction is that you must not shake hands at the end of the game.
We continue to offer you an appealing range of riding activities. For a perfect riding experience, please contact our riding stable team directly so that they can offer you a service that is tailored to suit your requirements and that complies with the current regulations and standards.
Our golf driving range offers one of the best opportunities for social distancing, allowing you to play a round of golf with no restrictions.
If you fancy exploring the area on an e-mountain bike, feel free to try one of our bikes for hire any time in the Sport-Eck. Our Sport-Eck team will ensure all equipment is thoroughly disinfected.
Despite limited access (one guest per 20 m2), our fitness garden covers 500 m2 and offers you plenty of space, as well as a huge selection of the latest training equipment. However, we would ask you to ensure your hands are thoroughly washed or sanitised and that you maintain a minimum social distance of 2 metres from other guests. Naturally, our team also regularly disinfects everywhere thoroughly. As far as our fitness classes are concerned, we must continue to maintain a social distance of at least 2 metres for all indoor and outdoor classes. This means that there will be a maximum number of participants for each class. You will therefore be required to register. Other than this, there are no limits to your sporting ambitions.
We are also absolutely overjoyed that we can continue to be on hand for our youngest guests every day between 9.30 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. In keeping with the great responsibility we feel towards your children, we will do everything we can to ensure that they are as safe as possible in every respect at all times. The general social distancing rule applies. To guarantee this, we will, until further notice, only be supervising a maximum of 10 children (over the age of 3).
Which makes it all the more important to register your children in good time beforehand.
You can rest assured, of course, that the childcare provided will be of the same high quality and on the same scale as before. The children's meal will also continue to be served as usual in our hotel restaurant by appointment - please understand that in light of recent events, neither parents nor siblings who are not simultaneously being cared for may be present until further notice.
Every day from 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. there will also be a friendly, free crèche at the children's farm for infants over the age of 1.
You must register with the Concierge by 5.00 p.m. on the day before.
OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS
As a guest, where do I have to wear a protective covering over my nose and mouth?
The newest regulation of the Austrian Federal Government says that masks have to be worn in all stores, all public authorities and in all public transportation.
For the preservation of a safe holiday environment we kindly ask you to wear your masks at the buffet, during SPA-treatments and in all public areas at the hotel.
Thank you very much for your support & solidarity!

You can enjoy a leisurely coffee, tea, cocktail and other delights every day from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. in our hotel bar "Auf der Tenne". As usual, live acts are a regular feature (in compliance with social distancing rules), providing a musical accompaniment to your evening. Further information can be found in our weekly programme or in the hotel's daily newspaper, "Stangl-Moments.

Even if you would rather not think about leaving us just yet, we would just like to say: if possible, please make cashless payments.
Look after yourself, look after us
We regret that we cannot give any guarantee of each individual guest's and member of staff's health. However, we are sure that we can all play our part in avoiding a second wave of this virus. For this reason, we would appeal to your sense of self responsibility and compliance with the new rules for conduct in your daily, mindful interactions with other people.

We are complying with all the rules and measures for social conduct stipulated by law and are doing everything to protect your health and safety. However, at the same time, we also want to respond as flexibly as we can regarding any restrictions or easing of restrictions in individual areas. We will therefore be keeping you up-to-date with all measures and reserve the right to continue to make updates and changes as necessary.
