Aqua Dome Hotel and Thermal Spa in Austria


If you consider yourself a water baby, this is your environment. And if you like to be pampered, double that. This four star thermal spa and wellness hotel is full of Alpine charm amidst modern amenities and style. Check out the bowl-shaped pools, dubbed “levitating bowls”. They each have their own function. The “Whirl Bowl” is indeed that, a thermal spring fed, mid-30 degrees Celsius hot tub or whirlpool. The “Sulphur Bowl” runs sulphurous water every quarter hour, and is lined at the edges with massage tables. The “Brine Bowl” is a salt water bath (5% salt) with underwater music and lights. How unique is this experience? And on Friday nights, there’s a “Moonlight Bath” event until midnight. Imagine sitting in a levitating bowl, watching the night sky, listening to music and thanking your lucky stars. There’s a sports pool, an activity pool, a seemingly never-ending number of water activities, plus saunas, spa treatments and four-star food. If you’re looking for a place to relax while you exercise your inner mermaid, look no further.


Winter or summer – this wellness hotel and spa is a treat.


Conveniently located in a valley between two mountain ridges.


There is glorious scenery everywhere you look.


Rooms are sleek and modern. But you won’t be in your room much — you came to take the waters.
