    Design aparthotel with wellness & heated outdoor swimming pool in the Austrian mountains

    Step out of your stylish apartment and immediately enter the Austrian mountains. As the name suggests, Haven Mountain Retreat serves as the perfect base to connect with nature. Whether you're looking for a winter getaway or a beautiful summer trip, both are possible at this destination. The aparthotel offers numerous outdoor activities, a heated outdoor pool, and superior culinary indulgence. In short: all the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday.

    Haven Mountain Retreat is located on a slope in the heart of Salzburg Land, the largest ski area in Austria. It is therefore directly on the slopes of St. Johann and offers ski in-out options. This imposing environment makes Haven Mountain Retreat an ideal refuge for outdoor enthusiasts in both summer and winter.

    During your visit, alternate between invigorating adrenaline and pure relaxation. Make use of the spacious fitness facilities, various wellness amenities, or yoga classes at one moment, then impress yourself on the slopes or discover the magic of the Austrian mountains during a challenging hike the next. In the evening, enjoy room service in your elegant apartment or settle at a table in the restaurant. And all of this is within an aesthetically pleasing design environment where luxury and style are paramount.

    Each season has its own charm at Haven Mountain Retreat. In the fall and spring, explore your surroundings on foot or by bike, and in the summer, enjoy swimming or golfing. If you book this destination in winter, you can be sure of a fairytale setting. In the magical winter wonderland, you can ski straight out of your apartment to the ski lift, which is located 100 meters away. Or warm your heart with a mug of mulled wine at the Christmas market in the idyllic town center during December.

    This House of Hideaways accommodation has something for everyone. All apartments feature high-quality design and include, among other things, a living room with oak floors, separate kitchen, and smart TVs. Visit Haven Mountain Retreat alone for ultimate relaxation or to make new acquaintances on the terrace or in the stylish après-ski. Opt for a romantic getaway as a couple and book a sleigh ride with horses. Or book one of the 3-room apartments for the whole family (yes, the entire family. Even the dog is welcome).

    Summer and winter in Haven Mountain Retreat

    At this unique location, you can visit all year round. With a 100% snow guarantee in the winter, you can rest assured that you can fill your days with winter sports activities. There are also various hiking trails around the hotel to explore the surrounding area on foot, and St. Johann has an ice rink where you can skate. In summer, this area is known for its gold glittering mountains and bright blue lakes. Rent a bike, spend a day golfing, take a refreshing dip in the pool, or enjoy the Austrian sun on the rooftop terrace.

    Ski in - Ski out

    Haven Mountain Retreat is located in the largest ski area in Austria, and you can tell in every way. Your apartment is situated 100 meters from the nearest ski lift (Gernkogel), and another 100 meters away you'll find the next one (Alpendorf). Therefore, from the accommodation, you have direct access to the ski slope. Even for the inexperienced skier, there is plenty of fun to be had at this destination - a ski school is located near the hotel, and you can rent all the necessary equipment.

    Enjoyment for food connoisseurs

    Flushed and satisfied, you settle down at a table at deck7 after a long day of action, the stylish restaurant with a view of the mountains. At this accommodation, winter sports does not equate to basic meals. For instance, opt for the truffle tagliatelle, the grilled lobster, or one of the other culinary delights on the menu. Those who prefer to enjoy these treats in peace can have the food delivered. You can order à la carte breakfast in the restaurant, or you can opt for the bakery goods service. The tastiest breakfasts with freshly baked bread are then delivered to your front door every morning. Vegetarian or vegan dietary preferences? With enough vegetarian options on the menu, this is also no problem at Haven Mountain Retreat.

    Discover Salzburger Land

    In addition to skiing, hiking, and swimming in the most beautiful lakes, there's much more to do in Salzburg. Visit one of the cultural events in summer, like the Salzburg Festival or the Alsommer opening. This area is just as vibrant in winter, with fairytale-like Christmas markets, the Snow Jazz festival, or Winterfest. Can you already smell the kaiserschmarrn...?



    Haven Mountain Retreat is ideally situated in the heart of the Salzburg mountains. During winter, you can enjoy direct access to the slopes with ski-in/ski-out convenience.
