Relax for a moment and come down – this works particularly well in the wellness hotel. But which one has the best spa, the most beautiful saunas and the most delicious food? The hotel testers of the Wellness guide “Wellness Heaven” look for answers to this every year. They have already revealed their recommendations for 2022.

More than 500 evaluation criteria were taken into account, including those relating to the cuisine, the rooms, the location of the houses and of course the amenities and services in the spa and sauna areas. Also in focus in year two of the pandemic: hygiene protection. In other words: Are the hotel rooms disinfected regularly? How is the buffet organized? Are there any hygiene deficits in the spa?

The users of the wellness portal were able to vote on the hotels that performed best in advance in terms of form until autumn 2021. The best hotels were then chosen on the basis of a total of 93,775 votes received. Four of the fifteen award-winning houses are in Germany, seven in Austria, three in Italy and one in Switzerland. FOCUS Online shows the most beautiful houses.

When it comes to spa, at the forefront: the third generation of the Hettegger family run the five-star hotel “Das Edelweiss”. The hotel, located a good 200 kilometers south-east of Munich, offers relaxation and recreation facilities on five levels and more than 7,000 square meters. In 2019 the entire hotel was renovated and expanded. The cheapest offers start from around 150 euros per person per night.

In second place in the “Best Spa” category, the wellness fans chose the “König Ludwig Wellness & Spa Resort” in Schwangau in the Bavarian Allgäu. Very close to the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, hotel guests can look forward to wellness at the highest level – from around 210 euros per person per night. Third place goes to the “Quellenhof Luxury Resort Passeier” in St. Martin in South Tyrol (from 225 euros).

The hotel with the best food is in Tyrol

The award in the “Best Culinary” category goes to the “Posthotel Achenkirch” in the 2022 ranking. From around 170 euros per person and night you can experience the largest bathing and sauna area in Tyrol and the hotel’s own 9-hole golf course. Also recommended: the 34 degrees warm brine outdoor pool, which offers a view of the surrounding mountain peaks, as the hotel testers praise.

According to the voting, the “Sonnenalp Resort” in Ofterschwang in Bavaria (from 330 euros) and the “Bergkristall” resort in Oberstaufen in the Allgäu (from 175 euros per person per night) also performed extremely well in terms of food.
