Sandhof in Lech: your hotel with spa offerings on the Arlberg

Ski and relax in one of the world’s most beautiful ski regions

A gnarled mountain farmer from Lech once put it like this: “If you want a spa experience, just go outside!” Admittedly, an Arlberg stay by itself is a pure spa experience. Here at Sandhof, we offer additional treatments to pamper you. Welcome to our small and exclusive spa area!

Skiing, sunbathing, breathing in fresh air: Is there anything better than relaxing after a day of winter sports on Arlberg? Treat yourself to a hot and cold alternating bath and top it off with a pleasant massage at the Sandhof, your hotel with spa offerings in Lech.

Spa offerings with sauna at Hotel Sandhof

Who invented it? What the Finns have enjoyed for centuries guarantees the best wellness on your ski holiday. Here’s to the Sandhof sauna offerings!

Ski and relax: overview spa area

  • Finnish sauna / bio sauna
  • Steam / brine bath
  • Ice grotto
  • Experience showers
  • Massage room with massages by arrangement
  • Relaxation room with drinking fountain

What’s the difference between the various saunas?

There are high temperatures and low humidity in the Finnish sauna. The interior is heated up to 80-100 °C with a sauna heater. The bio sauna is considerably more circulation-friendly with 65-70 °C and a humidity of approx. 55 %. The steam bath is suited for sauna beginners and children with very high humidity and low temperature (40-55 °C).

What does a visit to the sauna involve? What do I have to pay attention to?

Die Wärme wirkt positiv auf die Haut, das vegetative Nervensystem und das Immunsystem. Durch den Wechsel von Wärme- und Kältereizen wird der Stoffwechsel angekurbelt, die Blutgefäße bleiben elastisch und die Muskeln werden in der Tiefe entspannt. Im Sole-Dampfbad im Hotel Sandhof wirkt das Salz zusätzlich positiv auf Haut und Atemwege.

Here are a few pointers to have a fun sauna stay at Hotel Sandhof:

  • Take a warm shower in our experience shower and then dry off before going into the sauna.
  • Bring a large sauna towel to the sauna cabin and get comfortable for 8-10 minutes.

  • Repeat the procedure as many times as you want!
