Almwellness paradise

Holiday getaway at Tuffbad

Just relax and chill – doesn’t that sound great? That’s exactly what my boyfriend and I did last week.

Far away from all hustle and bustle in the middle of the Tyrolean and Carinthian Alpine nature there is a family-run spa resort called 1. Almwellness-Resort Tuffbad. Only surrounded by small chalets and beautiful scenery, perched on a mountaintop overlooking the magnificent Dolomites. It is the perfect place to escape the daily routine. We couldn’t think of a better place to spend the last 4 days of our winter holiday.

As soon as we arrived we felt like home. The hoteliers Eva-Maria und Egon Oberluggauer welcomed us very warmly. After we tried the very delicious “Tuffbad” aperitif with regional mountain cranberries in the lounge area, we checked into our room.

Shall we Chalet? Yes, please!

Rustic, traditional designs and luxury combined in one. Every room, suit and chalet impress with its own unique character. What I loved most about our room was the alpine style designed furniture and the Swiss pine canopy bed. I slept so well and was just happy when I woke up. Well maybe it was the amazing breakfast buffet too that made my mornings so easy.

Vitamin boost

At the breakfast buffet you find everything your appetite desires. From freshly cooked scrambled eggs, omelets to a great variety of seasonal and regional veggies, fruits, cheese, bread, yoghurt, cereal, homemade jam, honey and freshly squeezed juice etc.

“A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away!”

Another breakfast highlight is the yummy smoothie in the morning. We liked the vitamin shot so much that we asked for another glass and got an even bigger second one.

Culinary delicacies

Every morning we received a morning newspaper and the four-course menu for the evening. My boyfriend laughed at me and asked: “I guess you postpone your New Year’s resolution for a few days?”

Yes for sure! The dinner course choices were too delicious to skip. Enjoying regional organic whole foods prepared with lots of love and know how is better than sticking to “a not eating dinner” diet. At our last day the hotelier surprised us with a special romantic candle light dinner in the unique dining chalet.

“Everything is possible – nothing is mandatory”

The hotel stay was all-around wonderful. There were a lot of highlights but it was a very special one that set the Tuffbad apart from all the other wellness hotels: The warm-hearted hospitality!

The kindness and the politeness of both the hoteliers and the staff were amazing. All the people we have met there had their own great personality. Everyone who served us was very warm-hearted and friendly. Have you ever played cards with the barkeepers? Well, we did!

Cocktail hours

Gin tonic, good chats and lots of laughs made our evenings at the hotel bar memorable. Writing those lines, I remember our first afternoon at the spa. We were talking to one of the other guests in the pool and he told us that he and his wife are coming here twice a year because they are so happy about the hospitality.

We have been to many different Spa resorts and usually the staff is nice but the authentic and down-to-earth treatment at Tuffbad is outstanding.

Dreaming of a relaxing and feel-good getaway in the heart of the mountains? Then this is the place to go. Visit and enjoy yourself! At Tuffbad you can expect to get pampered throughout the whole day.

We will definitely come back to explore the summer in the Alps. Thanks family Oberluggauer and the whole team for those wonderful relaxing days. See you soon.
