Wellness & Fitness

Your well-deserved break!

As our guest, you are free to use our gym, sauna and relaxation area at any point during your stay.

It’s the perfect place to start your day or unwind after a day in the great outdoors and mountain air!

Our Sauna

Relax and enjoy the health benefits of a traditional Finnish Sauna

When it comes to using a sauna, the Austrians can teach the rest of us a thing or two. Contrary to what many believe, taking a sauna is not supposed to be an ‘in-and-out’ process. It’s no good grabbing a beer, cranking up the temperature and seeing how long you can stand it. Saunas are supposed to be a relaxing experience, and a good one should last between 90 minutes and two hours, if not more. Please note, to conserve energy the sauna is not permanently heated but, to ensure it’s nice and hot when you return from skiing, we turn it on at 5pm each day in the peak periods (otherwise we heat it up when requested)

Here's the technique

Leave the beer (or any alcohol) until you’ve finished (there’ll be plenty of time to take on fluids, but they should be of the H2O variety!).

Grab a towel and dressing gown from reception.

The folklore is true, the Austrian tradition is to sit in the sauna naked (they say it’s more hygienic). If you want to be naked, go ahead. If you want to wear a swimming costume, that’s fine too.

Let yourself into the sauna and crank up the heat to a temperature you think you can stand for 15 minutes.
Set the timer for your desired stay – aim for at least 10 to 15 minutes, but no more than 20.

Put down a towel and sit / lie on it.
The higher up you sit, the hotter it will be. Relax – chat to your friends or, better still, just think your thoughts (you can think about those great turns you’ve been making!).
If you’re finding it easy, add to the heat. If it’s too hot, sit a little lower.

When your time is up, go straight outside and cool down. Either stand outside in the cold (please keep a towel on if you went for the naked option!) or, if you’re feeling strong, take a few steps into the pond and splash yourself with icy water. It feels amazing – especially on your head.
Dry yourself off and wrap yourself in your dressing gown.

Relax. If you can stay awake after all this on top of a day’s skiing, you’re doing well.
When you’re ready, repeat the whole thing once more. IMPORTANT: don't forget to drink plenty of water during the process.

What is there not to like?

What is there not to like? 5* accommodation, great hosts and more things to do than you can shake a stick at. Currently sitting in the Panorama Alm drinking coffee whilst brushing the fresh powder off the jacket.

The greatest place for an action packed holiday

The greatest place for an action packed holiday, just to chill out or anything in between. So much to do in beautifull surroundings.

Once you are in, you never want out

There is one problem with a St Martin chalet, once you are in, you never want out. Life is so easy with the food delivered, restaurants taken care of and in case you run out of wine a handy racks full at the reception. The comforts of your own home, the family around you, the amazing food of Lungau region, the laid back atmosphere and the magic scenery. We went twice and we are looking to return again and again and again.

Now, I have added another thing to my Bucket List: returning to st martin chalets!

I planned for almost a year to find the perfect place to complete the #1 item on my Bucket List. I had aspired to dive in the GrunerSee. st martin chalets made it come true. They were able to do anything that I needed or wanted. When I arrived, they had already contacted a divemaster for me (Leo Maierhuber was wonderful). The area is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Now, I have added another thing to my Bucket List: returning to st martin chalets!
