After a successful winter season, this five-star hotel underwent an extensive renovation in order to offer guests an even higher level of comfort and quality. With the work complete, couples and families can now enjoy 17 spacious and elegantly furnished suites, along with a newly designed Family Spa and an larger and modernised children’s and youth area.

“We are delighted to be able to offer our guests an even better living experience in the midst of our alpine nature,” commented the Hetteger family, owners and hosts at Das Ede;weiss. “The new suites, the completely redesigned children’s and youth area and the Family Spa take our resort to a new level”.

As part of the modernisation measures, 17 luxurious junior and family suites with even more space for up to seven people will be created from 26 of the existing rooms. The 115-square-metre units from the top-suite category, which feature a fireplace, a private dining area and a private hot tub on the large terrace, promise very special exclusivity. Das Edelweiss Salzburg Mountain Resort now shelters a total of 130 rooms and suites.

The architecture and design concept are described by the owners as an elegant style of alpine chic. The three main materials in use are wood, natural materials and glass. Large window fronts allow plenty of daylight and open up the view of the Grossarl mountains. The oak wood floor, which is laid in an elaborate herringbone pattern, creates a high-quality and inviting look. The aim of this elegant interior design is to provide visitors with a homely and cosy ambience.

With great attention to detail, this new look was planned with the hosts contributing their ideas, being in close contact with the architects on the floor plan, the lighting concept and the choice of materials. The Hettegers also injected their own personality into the design by means of charming colour combinations and selected decorative elements. The wall decoration made of wallpaper, picture frames and wood cladding is all more daring than in the existing residential units and thus sets new modern accents.

The family areas of the resort have also been upgraded. In the Family Spa, the element of water is again be a central focus, from the new indoor pool to the blue colour scheme, which it takes on in a stylish way. Young guests will be able to let off steam in the newly designed children’s and youth area, which has been enlarged to 1,000 square meters. The extensive range of games and fun covers everything from a ball-pit to an indoor football pitch, and a trampoline by ValoJump with interactive games function.
