SPA BABY SECRETS . . .
BAVARIA'S SCHLOSS ELMAU FEATURED IN
BBC SELECT'S "AMAZING HOTELS:
LIFE BEYOND THE LOBBY"
The destination spa resort and cultural hideaway is the
latest featured hotel in the series that has highlighted the
iconic Claridge's in London, The Silo in Cape Town and
Ashford Castle in Ireland
Schloss Elmau, the destination spa, resort and cultural retreat in the Bavarian Alps, was featured in the most recent episode of "Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond The Lobby," a series on BBC's documentary streaming channel, BBC Select. In the most recent episode, the show's hosts (chef Monica Galetti and food critic Giles Coren) explore Schloss Elmau's sublime setting, visiting the hotel's six lavish spas and taking in the alpine scenery from the comfort of infinity pools, saunas and saltwater pools. Giles Coren even braved the 15-degree plunge pool.
Schloss Elmau's owner, Dietmar Mueller-Elmau, was featured in the episode discussing his vision for the resort's wellness experience: "I tried to build a spa that I might be tempted to use myself. I like privacy; I like a sense of calm. So I need lots of space, lots of privacy, many different pools. I still haven't used [the spa] though, because I think that the imagination of using it is better than the reality."
