The vision for this hotel concept was to create a noble yet modern-puristic retreat for all those who love the extraordinary. To combine modern luxury with alpine lifestyle – and that at almost 2,000m above sea level in the middle of one the regions in Austria with the most reliable snow conditions. First-class residential design, service and amenities at the highest level, haute cuisine, exquisite wellness enjoyment – among other things with luxurious ESPA treatments – allow guests to immerse themselves in a world apart from the everyday, because The Crystal lifestyle should not only be felt, but also experienced.

The Crystal

The Crystal is the perfect home away from home for people who love and appreciate something special. For demanding and quality-conscious trendsetters, connoisseurs and luxury travelers. Due to its predestined location on the slopes in the middle of the Ötztal mountains, The Crystal is also the first address for all sporty lifestyle fans.

But The Crystal is also the perfect vacation location for the non winter sports enthusiast: The Crystal Spa, The Crystal Gym, exclusive ESPA pampering treatments and a wide range of leisure activities offer the ideal alternative to fun on the slopes.

The energy concept

It is the combination that creates the perfect big picture at The Crystal, making your stay an unforgettable experience. Because here, guests are offered casual living luxury and first-class living design for every taste, while relying on a unique energy concept: Thus, part of the house is supplied with renewable energy and can be operated environmentally friendly and sustainable through deep drilling – and that at almost 2,000 meters above sea level. A groundbreaking project that could be realized here.

The Crystal is a power place in the middle of the Alps, where you can treat both your body and your mind to an exclusive time-out. Through special treatments, such as luxurious ESPA treatments, which are offered in the hotel as the only resort in the Alps, and highly trained staff, the guest completely regains himself. Breathes again through. Releases.

Fine Dining

The team at The Crystal spoils its guests with alpine refined fine cuisine: day after day, refined culinary masterpieces await them on their plates, accompanied by a selection of exquisite wines from around the world.

Outdoors, 112 kilometers of slopes wait to be discovered. Ski-in and ski-out, ski boutique and ski rental in the hotel allow guests to fully enjoy these special days from the first to the last second.

Since spring 2020, The Crystal is part of the VAYA Group. The group’s portfolio currently includes 24 unique resorts and apartment houses in Austria.

This is where high vacation and living comfort meets exclusive, alpine charm.
