5 extraordinary features of your hotel in St. Anton am Arlberg

What the ideal hotel for summer holidays in the mountains should have on offer.

Admittedly, St. Anton am Arlberg makes you think of ski legends like Mario Matt or Karl Schranz and pioneers in winter tourism. In other words: you think of winter. However, the village situated in the Stanzertal between the Lechtaler Alps to the north and the Verwallgruppe to the south is becoming more and more an insider tip for summer holidays. Over 300 kilometres of ski slopes criss-cross the terrain in winter, and there are just as many kilometres of hiking trails to discover in summer. After all, the municipality of St. Anton am Arlberg has a larger area than the entire Principality of Liechtenstein. But we don't want to put the cart before the horse. For summer holidays, you need one thing first: a place to sleep. Here are five extraordinary features that a hotel in St. Anton am Arlberg should have. 

1. Architecture: Space for the essentials in your summer holidays

A personal, spacious retreat instead of an impersonally placed bed makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. And because you travel to Tirol to experience the mountains, nature should also be present in your accommodation. Floor-to-ceiling windows, sun-drenched rooms, the hiking area and golf course on your doorstep: All this creates an atmosphere that could never be reproduced by imitating the style of the Tirolean wooden houses. With the interior reduced to the essentials and designed with clear lines, nature becomes tangible. Therefore, the first feature for a hotel in St. Anton is connecting guests with nature through architecture and design.

2. Location: Well-positioned for activities & in the middle of nature

Just as nature is present in the hotel, the mountains should be within easy reach. How convenient that the St. Anton cable cars also operate in summer, making the region’s 3,000 metre peaks accessible for everyone – such as the Kuchenspitze, at 3,148 metres St. Anton’s highest mountain. Ideally, your hotel is the gateway to various mountain biking and racing cycle routes: Mountain bikers can choose from 200 kilometres of mountain bike routes and racing cyclists can ride over the Arlbergpass to Bregenz and on the next day cycle on the Silvretta High Alpine Road.

3. Activities: Teeing off with a climb

Of course, not everyone likes such strenuous tours on or over the Arlberg. In the 14th century, the route over the pass was considered so dangerous that the Hospiz St. Christoph was built as a mountain refuge. Today, the route is no longer dangerous, thanks to the Arlberg tunnel and the expanded pass road. Nevertheless, some people prefer the view of the mountains to climbing. This view can be enjoyed particularly well watching a golf ball that has just been teed off on the 9-hole course right next to one's hotel room. And the view is even better when the ball lands on the green and not in a bunker. But since we are right in the middle of the Tirolean Alps, the way to the putting green can become a bit steep. So, even when playing golf one can have a real mountain experience.

4. Relaxation: Rooftop pool and sauna with mountain vistas

But now we have digressed a little from the subject. It may be forgiven as this can happen with the multitude of summer activities available. And we haven’t even mentioned via ferratas, high rope courses, themed hiking trails or swimming pools. After engaging in sporty mountain experiences and leisurely nature explorations, it's time to take a deep breath. What better place to unwind than the hotel’s rooftop pool, simply enjoying the unobstructed view of the mountains? Or how about relaxing your aching muscles at a pleasant temperature of 75°C in the panoramic herbal sauna or in the newly designed wellness area Mont Spa featuring the 90°C hot sauna, Sanarium, experience shower and much more. The panoramic relaxation area with library and reading niche is located on the upper floor. These are just some of the amenities a hotel in St. Anton should offer.

5. Restaurant: Let’s get straight to the culinary delights

Exercising in fresh air and wellness make you feel hungry! How convenient to stop by at the café coming directly from the piste of flower meadow or enjoying the view from the hotel restaurant or bar. The variety of culinary delights on your plate blends particularly well in a cosy ambience thanks to natural materials such as wood and lots of glass.

Now it should be obvious what to expect of your accommodation in the mountains. The question is whether there is a hotel that has it all? The answer: Yes, the Hotel Arlmont in St. Anton am Arlberg!
