You know I love hotel reviews and even more if there is a spa involved. I went to Bettel, near Vianden in the north of Luxembourg, to spend two nights in the luxurious CHALETS PETRY SPA & RELAX with my husband and my two dogs. The family business restored the existing lodges and created six fancy accommodations. The lodges have all the same equipment. A private spa area with a terrace, a balcony with a bbq, a kitchen, a fireplace, 4 bathrooms and beds for up to 8 people. The resort includes a reception, a garden and a massage service.
This is what the resort description says:
Six exclusive wellness chalets for up to 8 people, enrich the southern tip of the nature reserve of the Our. The park-like complex with pond, a massage hut, a bicycle lodge and the chalets meets the highest standards in terms of location, ease, comfort, facilities and service.
The location is ideal: easily accessible, undisturbed position affording an unobstructed view over the rolling hills of the romantic Ourtal. It is an ideal starting point for hiking, cycling and mountain biking tours. At the same time, the nearby Vianden offers a diverse culinary, cultural and tourist offer.
The wellness-chalets, massage cabin and breakfast room along with the wine cellar in the adjoining building were completed in summer 2017. We worked on the interior design with high quality, sometimes very old woods. We were lucky enough to find an experienced Austrian carpenter company, which ensures the individual touch of the differently themed chalets.
The chalets remind you of Swiss lodges, built of high quality wood. When you enter them, you are submerged by a pleasant mix of wood and charcoal scent. Every material used is exclusive and high quality. The lodges are surrounded by nature. Since it is autumn, the landscape offers every colour of the green to brown palette. You have to imagine that I live in the city center of the second biggest city in Luxembourg. That I took my car and only drove for one hour to reached total escape – in a good way!
There are two double en suite rooms, one double room with a separate bathroom and two single rooms in every chalet. There is also another bathroom in the spa area with a shower and a toilet. As it is part of a luxury chalet, it is not necessary to bring towels. The chalets are well equipped with all kinds of towels, bathrobes and slippers. The most important feature of a hotel, the bed, is super comfortable and I slept like a baby.
At Chalets Petry Spa & Relax you have THE CHOICE in terms of breakfast. You can choose the location where to have it. Whether in the main building or you can pre order your breakfast that will be delivered in a cute basket right into your chalet. The choice of the food is huge so that everybody should find what he likes. What I really liked is that there is a coffee machine in the kitchen and also a water kettle with coffee tabs and many different teas. I chose to have my breakfast in the chalet. I find it more cosy and of course with the dogs it was easier to stay in our little home.
The private spa area with its heated floor is the biggest highlight of the chalets. I never experienced such a luxurious private spa anywhere else! The private jacuzzi outside is big enough for six people, the private panorama sauna made of stone pine too. What I also like is the infrared cabin where two people can sit simultaneously.
Chalets Perty Spa & Relax offers a multitudes of different massages that you can book easily on Salonkee. I didn’t get a massage so I cannot talk about the quality of the service, but during our last visit 2 years ago, my husband had a massage that he liked and I remember him saying that it was very professional.
The chalet also offers different packages, I find some of them very gender specific and maybe I am too “modern” but this is the only tiny negative point I would mention. But I am sure girls can order the beer package too if they want. The fighter for equality of genders in me would find it nice to have neutral package names, but it’s just a small detail.
For those who don’t want to cook in the perfectly equipped kitchen, there are different food platters you can order but as it is usual in a chalet, you can also order cheese or meat fondue for an absolute reasonable price.
What to do? Where to go?
Besides all the wellness activities, Chalets Petry Spa & Relax offers a wine tasting in their own wine cellar (depending on options and after reservation). You can also take walks in the surrounded nature or visit the very close Vianden. There are so many possible activities if you feel the need to leave the chalet. What I did, not this time because it was closed, but last year when I was camping, I went to the Hot Stone Chalet. This restaurant also belongs to the Petry family and it is build in the same flair. The food was great and I have to say that it is my favourite restaurant in the whole surroundings.
Would I come back?
Yes! I mean this was already my second stay and probably not the last one. The Petry family is very welcoming and they know what makes the difference between a good hotel and en excellent one. The whole staff was friendly and professional. The prices are absolutely worth the services and if you need to escape your everyday life I would say that Chalet Petry Spa & Relax is what you need!
