Ski-in, ski-out access, rooftop spa facilities, and excellent cuisine make the adults-only Hotel Riml a ideal choice for guests looking for luxury in Hochgurgl

Ski-in, Ski-out

As well as ski-in, ski-out access, the Hotel Riml also has a hand in-house ski shop. At 7,218 feet on the Ötztal mountain, the hotel has a bird's-eye view over the valley. You can keep an eye on the piste from the hotel's sun terrace, a popular spot for skiers at lunch. 

Austrian Welcome

As you enter, the large lobby is decorated in pine and marble and has a cosy fire showcase. You are greeted in the lobby by the friendly local staff. Next door is the rustic dining room, bar, and suave a la carte restaurant.

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

Rooftop Spa

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.

There is also an indoor golf putting course and golf simulator – to keep that swing in check.

The Hotel Riml is an adults-only hotel for ages 14+ years.

Hochgurgl is the smaller but higher neighbouring resort of Obergurgl. With slopes rising up to 3,080m, their altitude was not lost on Walter Ingham, the founder of the Inghams. 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.”

Skiing and snowboarding in Hochgurgl

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.
