All Spa Awards 2023 ratings at a glance:

Travel Charme Ifen Hotel: Excellent (98/100 points)

In the 2,500-square-meter PURIA spa landscape of the 5-star hotel, every guest will find his or her own place of well-being: whether in the new 25-meter-long infinity outdoor pool, the 18-meter-long indoor pool, in various outdoor and indoor saunas, or in the panoramic outdoor whirlpool with a view of the surrounding mountains. The brine sound room is a true highlight. The professional staff not only pampers expectant mothers, children, and couples with their own programs, but combines it with Ayurveda and various peelings. As an ideal starting point for an active vacation, the hotel is recommended for hikers, skiers, mountain bikers and climbers. For its gourmet cuisine, the Ifen Hotel’s top chef, Sascha Kemmerer, has already received several awards.

Travel Charme Bergresort Werfenweng: Excellent (92/100 points)

In this four-star, superior hotel, the forces of nature enter with presence – starting with the rooms and suites that contain native woods and materials, through to the 1,600 square meter PURIA Spa. The generous water world has been described as uniquely diversified by the magazine’s jury, with its all-season, heated sport basins, inside relaxation basins, as well as an outdoor panorama whirlpool with the view of the Werfenwenger mountain. Warming and soothing are the panorama, hut and bio sauna, as well as the steam bath.

Travel Charme Hotel Fürstenhaus am Achensee: Excellent (91/100 points)

Located in Pertisau on the shores of Lake Achensee, this four-star superior hotel combines relaxing and active nature vacations allowing one to recharge one’s batteries. The fascinating scenery between Karwendel and Rofan mountains, and Tyrol's largest lake, guests are able to enjoy not only when hiking, golfing, mountain biking or partaking in winter sports, but also when in the spacious PURIA Spa. Within 3,000 square meters, relaxation seekers will find an indoor and outdoor pool, a brine grotto and various saunas such as the panorama or herbal sauna. The judges highlighted in particular the wide selection of professional treatments.

Travel Charme Kurhaus Binz: Excellent (90/100 points)

The Kurhaus Binz is considered as one of the landmarks of Rügen, and for more than 100 years it’s top location near the Baltic Sea. Its excellent hospitality, its uniqueness in equipment and service as well as being directly situation on the beach with views up the horizon, convinced the travel experts. "On 1,500 square meters there are exclusive experiences in terms of sports, sauna or massage." Whether fun in the pool, bubbling warmth in the interior whirlpool, or having a sauna in the Egyptian sweat bath, one is moved back to the times of the Nofretetes.
