Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa Retreat and Cultural Hideaway
Scale of 90-100
Idyllic 115-room resort and spa retreat in a scenic tract of pine-forested countryside at the foot of the Wetterstein Mountains. Rooms in the main building with mountain-view balconies are the most desirable; lodgings in adjacent Wetterstein Wing have floor-to-ceiling windows directly facing the mountains (avoid ground-floor rooms, which lack privacy). Junior Suites feature intricately carved furniture from India and Indonesia, oak parquet floors and limestone-and-sandstone baths. Comprehensive spa includes family area with indoor pool; adults-only section offers three pools (one saltwater) and immense hammam. One-star Luce d’Oro, plus Fidelio for gourmet Thai cuisine. Highly regarded Elmau Retreat 500 feet away features 47 suites, library, three restaurants, two spas, gym and pool.

The outstanding Luce d’Oro restaurant; dramatic views; grandly proportioned spa; numerous inviting public spaces.
The toll to use the private road to the hotel; the lack of electricity converters.
Good to Know
The Elmau Retreat near the Wetterstein Wing is highly recommended.
