My husband got a break from the busy hockey season so we ventured on a road trip to Austria. Our family stayed at the Aqua Dome Hotel and Spa in Lägenfeld. The drive from Munich, Germany is approximately 2.5 hours. 

Our room was spectacular. We stayed in the Junior Suite Freiraum with a fireplace (a real log fireplace, amazing!). The decor is filled with warm tones to capture the nature of the Ötztal Mountains. The hotel is pet friendly so we could bring along our French Bulldog. Our suite was on the ground floor with a walkout making it very accessible for Arnold. 

The resort is family friendly. Daycare services are offered for children 3 years and older (they must be potty trained). There is a Children’s World which includes a kiddie pool, waterslides, and a fun park. The walls and ceilings are glass so you enjoy 360° views of the mountains.

The Beauty spa is very relaxing. I had a 50 minute pre-natal relaxation massage. I highly recommend you take advantage of a treatment at the spa.

The Thermal Spa consists of thermally heated spring water flowing into the eight pools of the Aqua Dome. There is an outdoor pool area with three futuristic “floating” pools surrounding a glass cone. The first pool has underwater light effects. The second pool is revitalizing sulphurous water. The third pool is salt water. Inside there are two large sulphurous pools. All pools are nicely heated to a comfortable temperature. The thermal pools can be enjoyed during daytime and nighttime.

There is a Sauna World and many relaxation rooms however, I didn’t get to take advantage of these options because I am pregnant and I have a toddler. We spent a lot of our time in the Children’s World and the Thermal Spa pools.

Overall, we had an incredible experience. The staff were very warm and accommodating to us. The food was delicious. There is no better place to take in the views of the mountains in the Ötztal Valley, breathe in pure air, and rejuvenate your body and soul.
