Schloss Elmau Retreat
Bavaria, Germany
Great spa facilities • Off the beaten path • Stunning design
Featuring two separate bliss-inducing spas for families and adults, the Schloss Elmau Retreat combines luxury living with decadent pampering in rural Bavaria. Each of the 47 spacious suites offers the utmost comfort to complement your wellness experience in one of Germany’s most innovative spas. Opulence and wellness combine to make the Schloss Elmau your go-to spa hotel in Bavaria.


Surrounded by the Wettersteinwand Mountains and deep in the Bavarian Alps, the Schloss Elmau may not be the world’s most accessible hotel. But it’s this seclusion that makes it such a gem, a charming natural mecca that’s miles away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

Take full advantage of these spectacular natural surrounds to indulge in some skiing, cross-country skiing, sledding, hiking, cycling, climbing, or golf during your stay.

The hotel is a part of the Schloss Elmau resort Luxury Spa Retreat & Cultural Hideaway and it’s located only 150m away from Schloss Elmau Hideaway.

Transferring from the Airport Innsbruck takes 45 minutes and from the Munich International Airport around two and a half hours by road.

Rooms & Suites

The Schloss Elmau Retreat only offers 47 rooms and suites, so you can be sure you’ll have no shortage of space.

Smooth Thai silk and vibrant Indian linen add a splash of colour, creating an intimate atmosphere with unmatched aesthetic appeal.

Each of the suites is comfortable enough for a king. Allow the plush oversized Schramm mattress to lull you to sleep, a slumber that certainly won’t be interrupted by the noiseless HVAC system. Other high-tech amenities include super-fast Wi-Fi, a Nespresso machine, and an integrated entertainment system in all suites.

Spa & Wellness

Wellness is a core focus of Schloss Elmau, with two distinct centres offering a range of soothing treatments.

Wellness aficionados over the age of 14 would prefer the Shantigiri Adult Spa, where a steam bath, a Finnish sauna, and a saltwater infinity pool are available. Some of the facilities are for ladies only. Men needn’t feel left out because their spa space features a large sauna and steam bath next to an icy plunge pool. Both genders can hang out together in the mixed relaxation room that overlooks the Alps, or perhaps share a cuppa in front of the fireplace in the tea room.

If you’ve got the kids in toe, then drag them along to the Shantigiri Family Spa to get them up to speed on the latest wellness techniques. A 25-meter outdoor infinity pool, a Technogym, seven individual treatment rooms, and a relaxation room ought to do the trick.

Tempted to reach a heightened state of inner peace through body-bending exercises? Then sign up for Yoga classes with master trainer Johannes Mikenda, who teaches the ancient craft in the picture-perfect Yoga Pavilion. Lessons cater for every level and are just what you need to enhance your inner wellbeing. You can choose from other popular yoga styles as well. The team of great yoga teachers will make sure you will have a perfect experience.

Food & Drink

You can choose between a family restaurant Tutto Mondo or adult’s restaurant Summit (Fine Dining with Mediterranean Cuisine & Steaks for 14 years and older gourmet lovers). Both have recently received 14 Points Gault Millau.

If you prefer Mediterranean cuisine and intimate environment, you might visit Ganesha Private Dining Restaurant, which is open to guests 14 years of age and older.

If you’d like to feast al fresco with a view, then make your way to the terraces that overlook the Alps. Alternatively, the delightful Library Lounge allows you to dine alongside a dazzling collection of literary works.

Special Info

The Schloss Elmau is equally famed for its ability to host any event. No matter the scope, the hotel’s exceptional conference facilities come fully equipped to ensure your function will be a memorable success, much like when Barack Obama and Angela Markel met here for the G7 Conference in 2015.

It isn’t only for world leaders; however, as the Schloss Elmau is ready to host product launches, board meetings, charity galas, weddings, conferences, and more. It is famous for its cultural program. Up to 220 concerts per year take place in this magnificent location!

Families with children can try one of the hotel's programs as a soccer camp or an edutainment week.
