I feel like I’m sharing a guarded secret; but here goes. Last month, my friend organised a weekend away for our other friend’s 50th Birthday and she planned it just across the Austrian border in Bezau. It is a quick 2 hour drive (albeit we took a bit of a detour!) and at the most beautiful alpine hotel.

The Hotel Post in Bezau is everything you would hope for a Girls Retreat. The building is a typical chalet style but there are two different types of suites to choose from: the traditional ones or the new “spa” style ones which are more modern minimalistic. We stayed in both and can highly recommend the comfy beds and all the thoughtful details: pillow spray, water bottles (their water source is directly opposite their main building hence the 0km name) and even a foot bath!

We only stayed for a weekend so missed out on many of the facilities and activities on offer (next time we come for a week!), but we did make sure we visited the Susan Kaufmann Spa for facials and a massage.  The spa is also conveniently located by the indoor pool, outdoor pool and saunas – so definitely do plan too spend some time here. We also made sure to do a spot of shopping; their product range is diverse and I particularly liked their Detox Tea.


And speaking of tea, you can try all of these at the hotel and at the restaurant which was a huge surprise. The breakfast buffet and the five course fine dining dinners are world class! I already told Liam we should plan a Couple’s retreat here but then I also think the girls would love a whole spa experience too. But then as it is so close, I am thinking why choose?
