After our trip to Italy two weeks ago, we needed something totally different and a weekend just for the two of us. Friday after work we hopped in the car and after a 2 hours drive arrived at the 1. Almwellness Hotel Tuffbad, located in the middle of nowhere in Lesachtal. This area of Carinthia is really one oft the most prettiest. The hotel is surrounded by breathaking nature and silence. Oh, those things have become so special & important in this hactic world we are living in. In „Lesachtal’’ you can enjoy this pretty rare good to the fullest, as it’s the most environmentally friendly valley in Europe.
A few month ago, during the filming for the latest James Bond blockbuster, „Spectre“ , Daniel Craig and his crew lived here and enjoed the unique „Almwellness“ experience. Try different „007“ cocktails at the bar now or enjoy a ”Goldfinger Beauty Mask” at the spa. Don’t hesistate to talk to the lovely owners and chat with them about the thrilling time with the James Bond crew.
If you are longing for pure relaxation, nature and some great sport sessions in the mountains, this is the perfect place for you. Wander through beautiful blooming Alpine meadows, enjoy regional organic delicacies or simply relax in the well-spaced spa area.
At the Almwellness Hotel Tuffbad you can choose bewtween differnet non-smoking rooms at the Almwellness Hotel and the farmhouse suits in the chalets.
We spent the weekend in a lovely suite in one of the chalets. These suits in the traditional chalets are equipped with a sleeping and living area with tiled stove, bathroom with shower and tube, a walk-in closet, a private terrace and everything else a luxury heart desires.
Enjoy the culinary highlights prepared with love and natural regional products by the talented head chef.
We got spoiled with perfectly prepared 7 course dinners on starred-chef level. Every cours was real pleasure as such, prepared with high quality regional „0-km“ products from the „Lesachtal“ region.

Dive into the romantic Almwellness swimming pool and enjoy a special swimming experience in state-approved natural 30 degress Celsius hot mineral water. The whirlpool (located in the nude sauna area)offers a breathtaking view and ist he perfect place to stay and enjoy a little back massage.
The Almwellnes spa area really is one of a kind. We have been to a number of great wellness hotels in the past and already realxed in really great spa areas, but this is one is absolutely special. Here you can find totally special saunas, such as the historic bread bath with a temperature of 35 degrees Celsius which is ideal for calming down.
In the past the heat of the oven used for baking bread was utilized to relieve patients from rheumatism, bad thoughts and sins. The modern bread bath is a room with dry heat. The air in the room is enriched with the enzymes of the sour dough baking in the oven. These bread enzymes stimulate the metabolism and prevent digestive disorders. And maybe they really even get rid of sins, who knows;)
Another highlight ist the „Kraxen Oven’’, where you can relax your back and shoulders & enjoy the pleasant warmth of mountain hay.
After sweating in the saunas and getting rid of all the accumulated toxic substances of your body, it’s time to relax, lie back & have a good sleep in one of the chill-out rooms. You can choose between different lovely decorated relaxation rooms with pleasantly warm water beds or hay beds. Enjoy the fantastic view of the mountain range or just close your eyes and savor the silence of the region.
What about a private romantic spa session ? Doesn’t this sound really great!? That’s exactly what we did on our second evening. A special romantic evening just fort the two of us with a fruit plate & champagne surrounded by romantic candle light.
The hoteliers told us that this special evening spa session for lovers, are often booked for marriage proposals. Isn’t that romantic?
At “Sunnseit’n” health- & beauty department you have the chance to get pampered and enjoy some relaxing massages, facials or any other great beauty treatment with special mountain hay products.
Just relax, chill out & leave the hustle and bustle of your daily routine behind.
We enjoyed one of the most wonderful & relaxing weekends at the 1. Almwellness-Hotel Tuffbad and we’ll come back for sure, maybe for a romantic Silvester in the alps.
