I spent some exciting snowboard holidays at the Lux Alpinae from 5th till 9th of January.
As a studied product designer, I examined the interior design as well as the architecture carefully - you can call it an occupational illness. I was really amazed by the outstanding facade of the building, which is built into a cliff. The generous vitrification mounted on a steel and wood construction gives you an insight of what to expect from the inside: a minimalistic but decorated interior with love for details. Not too empty, not too overpacked, just right.
Standing in the hotel, you are able to touch the natural cliff wall - it seems as the cliff and the hotel are one. Nobody was trying to hide it behind tons of plaster, but spent time in planning how the cliff and the building can form a symbiosis. Well done!
I was also really stoked by the room design: the furniture is made out of natural materials, fortunately without ecological touch. The best thing of the room is for sure the big glass front between the bed and the integrated bathroom, so while lying in bed you can watch your beloved one taking a shower.
All in all, the hotel is amazing. The breakfast was like an orgasm in my mouth. The 4-course menu in the evening left nothing more to be desired. Everybody, who likes to test something apart from the traditional, kitschy places, should check in here straightaway.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A holiday in St. Anton without the deer antlers. With a gigantic Alpine backdrop and one of the most famous skiing areas in the world outside. With urban flair and unintrusive hospitality indoors. With extraordinary architecture and the kind of food you’d get at a cool, hip restaurant. Glass, steel, fairfaced concrete. ... more less
