Schloss Hotel Korb: A Suite Decorated With Old

My spacious suite

is located in the central building of the Hotel Schloss Korb, originally an ancient castle (I’m not a huge fan of sleeping in castles). Upon entering, I immediately noticed a beautiful bouquet of purple orchids almost black, in the parlor bathed in sunlight and overlooking the rose garden (picture 4).

An old telephone, some beautiful books about South Tirol, crystal chandelier and old wood (pictures 2 and 4): like the feeling to break into scene of an Agatha Christie’s novel. Then I head to another room bathed in light: the bedroom, with two large windows opened onto a bucolic landscape of postcard…

The ubiquity of Dolomiti! I’m Charmed by the lovely bright atmosphere, the hangings, the bed (very comfortable, with German single duvets, I mean a single duvet for each one in a bridal bed! It has always struck me! Lol!). In contrast, the impeccable bathroom offerts space and comfort of today and I prefer.

Schloss Hotel Korb: une suite à l’ancienne

Ma vaste suite

est située dans le corps central du Schloss Hotel Korb, initialement un ancien château (je ne suis pas fane des châteaux pour y dormir). En entrant, je remarque immédiatement un superbe bouquets d’orchidées pourpres presques noires dans le petit salon, gorgé de soleil, avec vue sur le jardin de roses (photo 4).

Un téléphone douche, quelques beaux livres sur le Süd Tyrol, le lustre et boiseries anciennes (photo 2) : comme l’impression de faire irruption dans un décor d’Agatha Christie. Puis je me dirige vers une pièce baignée de lumière : la chambre à coucher, avec deux grandes fenêtres ouvertes sur un paysage buccolique de carte postale…

L’omniprésence des Dolomiti! Suis charmée par l’atmosphère lumineuse et champêtre, les tentures, l’improbale lit (très confortable, avec les mono-couettes à l’allemande, le chaqu’un sa couette dans un lit nuptial, m’a toujours frappé! Lol!). Par opposition, l’impeccable salle de bain privilégie l’espace et le confort d’aujourd’hui, à une déco chinée à l’ancienne : je préfère.

Un grand merci à Suedtirol et Lufthansa pour cette belle invitation. Comme toujours ce sont mes opinions.

Massage, Sauna and Spa at The Golf & Spa Resort Andreus

If my first golf lesson

was a real pleasure, I also woke up an old light pain in the shoulders and upper back (nerds understand what!). I choice a massage of the neck @ Wellnessalm, the award-winning wellness of Golf & Spa Resort Andreus. While normaly for me, massages = Asia (I know, it’s really basic!), I want to experience the famous Haki Strech & Relax, a 50-minute massage that “focuses on muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and head“.

Daniel, the therapist start the massage by my head, with the Haki oil (composed of essential oils and I get worried of my allergies, but no problem this time). A kind of new-age music gives rhythm to the massage, slowly but surely I’m drowsy. After the upper body, hands and feet are massaged with the Haki balm with essential oils too, offered at the end of the massage. No way to know the composition (nothing mentioned on the packaging, except the mention of “Organic Cosmetic”) : surprising, I like to know what I give to my skin!

At the end of the massage, Daniel left the room fifteen minutes to let me relaxe and slowly open my eyes. But the great surprise was the next day : I could turn my head from left to right and vice versa, with an unprecedented flexibility and ease : unlocked neck and shoulders and lightened spine! Fantastic! Often right after a massage, you feel good. But after a great massage, it is really the next day and following days, you can feel the benefits. 

Then I reached the Vital Spa Andreus

for a sauna with essential oils of melissa, lemon and mint (picture 1): an unspected show in the dark and steam choreographed and acted by Haller Helli, the world champion of saunas (I didn’t even know it existed a world sauna championship!).

A girlfriend nicknamed Halle “Marc Jacob”, so let’s say, I had the privilege to have a private sauna with Marc (LOL!). On a pleplum music, he shakes with dexterity a wet towel in front of each one of us, for the essential oils to better penetrate our skin. It’s like a peeling that cleans the skin deeply and makes it extremely soft and smooth after.

I sat at the first level, where the lowest temperature is 50 °. Two higher levels, the temperature is 90°! Fortunately in front of the sauna, there is an ice water pool. But I prefered swimming in the large pool of warm water, surrounded by mountains, with the Dolomiti in the background (photo 2)! A bless!
