Das Posthotel is one of three high end hotels which are all part of ZillerSeason. It is one of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”and located in Zell am Ziller, which is a great spot when you’d also like to go skiing. The bus, which takes you to the huge Zillertal Arena, leaves right in front of the hotel and you can store your equipment in the basement of the hotel. But first things first: The Posthotel has been the second hotel on my trip and I’ve been so lucky with my room: The Skyloft Mariza. Like the rest of the hotel, the loft is furbished very exceptionally. Every loft has is own character and style and Mariza is the sexy one of them 😉 The thing which I liked most about the room was the convertible bathtub / sunbed with mountainview. I mean come on – how genius is that? I’ve spent a couple of minutes converting this thing back and forth, imaging how great it would be to take a bath while watching the sun go down behind the mountains (spoiler alert: it IS great indeed). Also, I definitely have to find out which scented candle they use. There sits one on the desk and it gave the whole room such a nice feel each time I’ve entered it. That was just one of the perfect little details of the room, on top of the high-end Sennheiser headphones, felt-slippers and natural cosmetics and care products from Susanne Kaufmann. Those things, which are thought through very cerafully, create this luxury feel you’ll get at some places in my point of view.
The one best thing in my opinion about this hotel is the restaurant. Included in my room was the 4 course gourmet menue. It was no problem to get an vegetarian alternative and it was put together so thoughtfully. I honestly don’t know when I’ve had such good food for the last time. Even the bread is extraordinary: it is home baked and when you come down to the restaurant you can already smell it. It comes with butter from the Alps and a little cress bouquet with vegetables and great olive oil. Well, I could go on and on for quite a while about the food but alltogether it is just really really great, regional and organic and even me as a vegetarian felt like this was haute cuisine on a very high level for three days in a row. By the way: I can encourage everybody to give feedback on great service like that instantly when you think that somebody did a great job. The chef seemed really flattered when I told him how much I appreciated his magic.
As you can tell from the pictures, there’s at least one more highlight. The beautiful spa including six saunas, relaxation area and heated outdoor swimmingpool and hot tub. Unlike in many other hotels, there even have been special sauna infusions, peels, etc where you can participate during your stay. And if you felt like you have had slightly too much food the night before (guilty!), you could use the fitness room and there even is a vital programm with pilates for example. Another thing I’ve really liked is that the Posthotel is certificated with the EU Ecolabel and the Austrian Ecolabel and that you can feel that it is family owned for many generations.The whole hotel was redesigned in a very careful way, preserving the natural atmosphere with the use of local woods and materials.
For me, ZillerSeasons provided a perfect blend of ski, spa, boutique and gourmet hotel. And what else could you ask for?
