Loisium Wine & Spa Resort Südsteiermark
What We Love
- Breakfast and access to the spa are included in the Jetsetter rate
- The vast heated indoor/outdoor pool, which leads from the spa to the great outdoors
- More than 160 wines are stocked on-site, many from local vineyards
- Bathrobes are de rigueur; it's a full-service 15,000-square-foot spa, and no one minds if you're not dressed during the day
- Pets are permitted at an additional cost of $20 per day
What To Know
- A city tax of approximately $1.30 per person, per night, will be collected by the hotel at checkout
- Most signs are in German (especially in the spa). If you don't speak the lingo, you may feel lost in translation
- This is quiet place built that attracts couples and singles. There are no children's facilities
- A car is recommended: Graz is a 40-minute drive, and Vienna is two hours to the north. The nearest train station (Ehrenhausen) is 10 minutes from the resort
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
Surrounded by vineyards in a verdant corner of southern Austria with a climate akin to the Mediterranean, Loisium Wine & Spa Resort Südsteiermark is a retreat for gourmets and oenophiles craving creative cuisine, top-notch wine and pampering. The exterior is an architectural wonder: bold, geometrical blocks made from untreated larch wood are stacked Jenga-style next to a giant outdoor pool. Inside, spruce paneling and nude tones keep things stark and sleek, but the look is livened up by inventive light strips, bright orange lampshades and moss green tiling.
Bed and Bath
Neutral and nude are the buzzwords in the guestrooms. Bare white walls are free of artwork, but windows frame awesome views of the surrounding vineyards or forest. Firm platform beds come with mattress toppers and pillow menus, and rooms are equipped with mini-fridges and espresso machines. Petite bathrooms miraculously hold large soaking tubs and glass showers and are stocked with full-size Aveda products. Most bathrooms open out to the bedroom, but privacy curtains provide separation. Each room comes with a bag filled with the unofficial Loisium spa uniform: a fluffy robe and slippers.
The spa is where it all happens at this wellness wonderland. The 15,000-square-foot space is home to several types of sauna, from Finnish to infrared, an indoor/outdoor pool, stadium-style relaxation areas with hanging Balinese loungers, and a long treatment list incorporating products made from locally cultivated grapes. There’s an all-day buffet restaurant on-site, but for posh dining, Wine & Dine by Dominik Stolzer serves innovative à la carte fare, complemented (naturally) by a lengthy wine list. Pop into Vinothek Steiermark before leaving to sip wines from local wineries in one of the tasting rooms. Here you can try before you buy (and at wholesale prices, to boot).
How to Get There
Nice hotel for couples or business events. Peaceful place, nice nature, polite and friendly staff. Lot of possibilities for companies- seminars, events. Nice experience in spa area, perfect massages with expert masseurs. Vinoteque with top wines from region and whole country. Nice experience! I recomend it warmly.
The location of the hotel is fantastic. We had a beautiful view to the vineyards and the closest small town with its church. The room was very good equipped with lots of wood elements. I took the prestige suit which has huge places. We received extra vouchers to try wines..etc. The wine shop has great atmosphere, but I found the restaurant a little too cold and unfriendly, not just because of equipment but the staff as well. The dinner was good but nothing special. The wellness area is huge and I really loved the heated outside pool. It was great even there’s was -10 degrees outside.
Thank you for a very pleasant stay. We especially loved the variety of the breakfast buffet. We drank magnificent wines and the service was very well informed and friendly. Our room felt very homely and the spa spreads an invitation to chill out and relax. I would love you to improve your barista skills on coffee. You have a great coffee machine in the bar and a couple of tweaks will produce a gourmet result.
Stayed at the place for 2 days. The rooms are modern and clean. Small bar but very nice staff. The Restaurant has descent food. Try to get a room on the second or Third floor, as some of the rooms (#110) look directly against the other side of the building (Conference Rooms).
Great property in a beautiful surrounding. The staff is great, the rooms are clean and nicely appointed, the food is of high quality and delicious. It's the place to go if you're looking for a relaxing vacation with everything you'll need.
