    The 4-star-superior Crystal Lifestyle Hotel does a brilliant job of retaining the ethos of excellent, friendly and welcoming Austrian hospitality in a refreshingly modern environment. The cosmopolitan styling in public areas really stands out and helps make this place outstanding. And the up-to-date design isn’t just from what you can see – this place has serious ecological credentials, utilising 100% renewable energy.

    Attention to detail is what it’s all about here. From the sleek combination of wood, glass and stone to clever lighting and a beautiful palette of warming colours - the Crystal keeps that sense of elegance flowing throughout. The rooms are not as modern, but are equally as comfortable and spacious with all mod-cons you’d expect.

    The wellness area is a real treat for the senses. Gym-bunnies have a fitness room to help keep in shape. Tired skiers can re-energise in the saunas and steam baths followed by a breath of fresh air on the spa terrace before diving into the outdoor pool with views of the Ötztal mountainscape. The Private Spa Suite is perfect for personal pampering time either alone or with your partner – and there’s a massage and treatment menu to complement the peaceful surroundings.

    The Crystal’s position couldn’t be much better either – walk out of the excellent ski room and virtually straight onto the Festkogel gondola for easy access to Obergurgl’s slopes. Plus you can ski virtually back to the door via either a blue or red run – depending on your ability.

    Unsurprisingly, with a hotel this fine, the food is a big part of the experience. The culinary team select the best ingredients to create delicious cuisine – with a menu changing daily. The head chef sources meat from the local area, natural products matured nearby and select ingredients of the best possible origin to really make every mealtime a joy.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
