TEXT: NANE STEINHOFF I PHOTOS: SPA-HOTEL JAGDHOF
Surrounded by the breathtaking backdrop of the Tyrolean mountains, the five-star SPA-HOTEL Jagdhof combines Tyrolean tradition with exclusive luxury. The hideaway offers its guests a unique mixture of Tyrolean coziness, eventful activities and culinary art on an international level.
The five-star SPA-HOTEL Jagdhof in Neustift in the Stubai Valley is not only considered one of the best wellness hotels in Austria, the luxury hotel has also been named the world’s best ‘Luxury Wellness Hotel’ at the renowned World Luxury Awards 2020.
Wellness and Relaxation at its best
The 3,000-square-metre-large jSPA is rightly looked upon as being one of the best spas in the country. In addition to the VITALWELT, with more than 20 different bathing, relaxation and sauna attractions, a wellbeing area as well as the SPA CHALET – an oasis of calm on 700 square metres – invites guests to experience extensive relaxation. The hotel’s latest addition is the new JCURE concept. Its diverse holistic and vegan anti-aging offerings of the Physiodermie method, in combination with a healthy JBALANCE cuisine of low carb and vegan offerings, as well as the JFIT programme with yoga and more, all complement the offer.
The hotel restaurant, the award-winning gourmet restaurant ‘Hubertusstube’ and the fondue gondola, probably the smallest gourmet restaurant in Tyrol, offer culinary highlights aplenty. While the cuisine of award-winning chef Boris Mayer is geared towards regional food and the use of local products, the exquisite wine cellar, which has just been awarded 20 out of 20 points by the gourmet magazine Falstaff, stores rarities both new and old.
Traditional design and family feeling
The Pfurtscheller family has owned the Jagdhof since 1977. Today, Armin Pfurtscheller, wife Tina and son Alban run the exclusively furnished hotel as its caring hosts. It impresses with beautiful local wood interiors and an unrivalled attention to detail, in which a perfect symbiosis of modern comfort and traditional Tyrolean style has been created. The rustic stone pine parlor, adorned with local game trophies, adorns the entrance hall, while a hand-carved spruce ceiling, which was exclusively made by a local artist, delights visitors in the restaurant area. The 70 carefully designed rooms and suites with floor space of up to 115 square metres, as well as the public rooms, showcase numerous Tyrolean antiques from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as paintings by Hubert Weidinger.
Activities aplenty – for young and old
For the little ones, the hotel’s own Kitz Club with its professional animation programme promises a lot of fun for the younger guests. For families, the region’s BIG Family offering, which includes special discounts, is also well worth checking out. In addition to its great location in the Stubai Valley, which is ideal for hiking, climbing, biking or horse riding in summer and for skiing, touring, snowshoeing and tobogganing in winter, the hotel offers a wide range of options in the middle of its 5,000-square-metre-large hotel garden. The extensive leisure activities at the hotel include beautiful hikes with a stop at the hotel’s Isse hut, for example. Other options offered include mountain bike tours, tobogganing, snowshoeing or ice stock sport, as well as motorcycle and Porsche tours over the nearby passes of Austria and Italy. In addition, special arrangements and theme weeks, with ski, yoga and fitness experts, are offered on a regular basis.
In winter, the resort is the perfect ‘home base’ for ski fans. In Austria’s largest glacier ski area, visitors can look forward to 35 perfectly groomed slopes with 108 kilometres of pistes amid colossal 3,000-metre peaks that are framed by the unique nature on the Stubai Glacier for around nine months a year. Guaranteed snow from October to June make fun in the snow possible for carvers, boarders and freeskiers, even after the season has long ended in other ski areas in the Alps. Furthermore, the Schlick 2000, Serlesbahnen and Elferbahnen ski areas in the Stubai Valley, as well as practice lifts in the valley, offer alpine skiing fun for all ages and skill levels. But also snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and tobogganing are part of the winter sports and fun offerings.
