As a user of Susanne Kaufmann’s amazing nature-inspired health & beauty products, I was thrilled to stay at her property, the Hotel Post Bezau, in the Bregenzerwald region of Vorarlberg, Austria.
Location Hotel Post Bezau
Flower-filled alpine meadows, evergreen forests, and hiker-friendly mountains flank the idyllic town of Bezau and the award-winning Hotel Post. This nature-rich region, known as Bregenzerwald, is where Susanne Kaufmann sources the ingredients for her organic skincare line.
An Interesting History
The Post Hotel Bezau opened as a post office with rooms for rent along a stagecoach line over 160 years ago. The founder was Susanne Kaufmann’s great-great-grandfather, and the original spruce and fir post office building is part of the Hotel Post.
Architecture and Design
The Bregenzerwald region is famous for its well-designed and constructed wooden buildings like the Hotel Post Bezau. In this region, architects and craftsman work as equals, respect traditional methods, and utilize innovative techniques. The result is beautiful wooden buildings that blend with the natural landscape.
Guest Rooms and Suites
The Hotel Post Bezau has 54 rooms and four suites. Wood and cosy textiles dominate the minimalist yet welcoming guest rooms. All rooms feature a balcony, Susanne Kaufmann’s organic skincare treats, and everything else you would expect from a four-star superior category hotel.
Gourmet Restaurant Irma at the Hotel Post Bezau features an area for fine-dining, a sun terrace for light snacks and drinks, as well as a lounge near the hotel lobby. The menu at Gourmet Restaurant Irma features products from the Bregenzerwald region.
With multiple pools (one indoor and small salt water pool outside), a gym, tennis courts (two indoor and two outdoor), a tennis school, as well as outdoor activities, it is easy for kids and adults to stay active while visiting Bezau. During the warmer months, hotel guests can access mountain bikes and Nordic walking poles on a complimentary basis. And then there is the Susanne Kaufmann Spa.
Susanne Kaufmann Spa Hotel Post Bezau
The award-winning Susanne Kaufmann Spa, designed by architect Oskar Leo Kaufmann (Susanne’s brother), is modern and luxurious. Spa guests can enjoy a range of classic and special spa rituals. Read more about the Susanne Kaufmann Spa here.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time for a spa treatment, but I purchased a few boxes of Susanne’s delicious anti-aging tea. It seems to be working.
