Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

At 7218 feet on the Ötztal mountain Hotel Riml has a bird's-eye view over Obergurgl. The modern interior, mazy corridors and picture windows give the hotel an exclusive feel. The position is ideal for skiing in and out, there are many entry points to the slopes and a handy in house ski shop.

As you enter, he large lobby is decorated in pine and marble and has a cozy fire showcase. You are greeted in the lobby by the friendly local staff. Next door is the rustic dining room and bar, suave a la carte restaurant, and hotel sun terrace which all overlook the valley.

The terrace is a popular spot for skiers at lunch, serving comfort food, local dishes and American diner-style food (paid locally). There is also an indoor golf putting course and golf simulator – to keep that swing in check.

You can admire the snowy mountains from the adult-only rooftop spa with sauna, steam room and fitness room. The infinity pool on the mountainside is a must after a day on the slopes.

Bedrooms are modern, comfortable and have pine décor. Some have balconies – you can’t get enough of the cinematic setting.

Hochgurgl

Obergurgl (1,930m) and its smaller, higher Neighbour of Hochgurgl (2,150m), are situated in the upper Ötztal Valley on the main Alpine ridge where snow is always guaranteed from November through to May. About 90 minutes drive south-west of Innsbruck with slopes rising up to 3,080m, their altitude was not lost on Walter Ingham, the founder of the Inghams’ tour operation. He brought his first party of skiers here in 1934 after placing an advert in The Times. It said: “Private Party to Ski the Tyrol  - 14 days for 12 guineas.”  At the end of the 1990s Obergurgl and Hochgurgl finally got a crucial mid-mountain link between their two previously separate ski areas - the Top Express eight-person gondola. A red run from the top of the Schermerspitze chairlift down to Obergurgl gives an impressive vertical descent of 1,500m. The two-stage chairlift up the Wurmkogl gives access to some truly challenging red runs and some fun off-piste.

Hochgurgl has recently opened the doors of its new ‘Top Mountain Crosspoint’ vintage museum and restaurant set at the bottom station of the new Kirchenkar 10-person gondola.  The multifunctional building that hosts a motorbike museum and a state-of-the-art mountain restaurant with table service and panoramic views. 

Skiing in Sölden is included

6 day lift passes are also valid in the superb Sölden ski area, where you can enjoy the bonus of 145km of high-altitude, glacier skiing.

In Hochgurgl you'll have one of our reps in resort who will know the local area and can assist you with any queries.
