A piece of Asia in the heart of Styria

Last weekend my friend and I spent two days at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Asia Spa Leoben. We were very much looking forward to the wellness trip because we really appreciate the Asian cuisine and culture.

When we arrived at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Asia Spa Leoben , we immediately noticed the Asian charm and the love of detail. Traditional Chinese elements and colours can be found throughout the hotel area. Our wooden suite featured   earthy  colours and many wooden elements. We found it particularly impressive that the rooms were designed according to the four points of the compass in the spirit of Chinese tradition.

Culinary delights are also a major focus at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Asia Spa Leoben. The dishes are a combination of Alpe Adria and Asian cuisine. Classic Austrian dishes such as schnitzel and Far Eastern dishes, like “Acht Schätze” (Eight Treasures) can be enjoyed in the bistro in the SPA area. In the evening we could choose from a rich buffet or spoil ourselves with a four-course dinner. The choice in the “In der Au” restaurant was really unique and left nothing to be desired. Moreover, as a vegetarian I always found something at the buffet and on the menus. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the service staff for their warm hospitality.

The highlight of the hotel is of course the large bathing and spa area. An Asian oasis of relaxation and recreation, right in the heart of Styria and at the same time a fulcrum between city and country. The bathing area is huge and divided into two zones. A family-friendly pool zone with indoor and outdoor sports pools, on the one hand, and, on the other, a sauna area. My friend and I had a really good time in the sauna area. The Asian charm and the pleasant silence allow you to relax and unwind. We were particularly impressed by the lotus blossom pool with its fantastic Asian backdrop. Another experience is, of course, the extensive sauna area with its wide range of spa facilities. The individual saunas have different scents and infusions, ranging from herbs to Tequila Sunrise. The Asia Spa Leoben has definitely rightly been named the best public spa in Europe in 2017 .

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for the wonderful and relaxing stay at the Falkensteiner Hotel & Asia Spa Leoben. The weekend trip was really good for switching off for a bit and finding your personal balance and Ying & Yang again.
