What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Kristiania Lech is a traditional ski chalet on the exterior with 29 unique guestrooms and suites designed around an extensive contemporary art collection. There are dramatic views of the village and the craggy 9,000-foot peaks surrounding the valley from every room. It features gourmet dining, cultured accommodations and genuine Austrian hospitality. This international retreat welcomes travelers to revel in the marvelous change of season and enjoy some great ski packages that present some remarkable value for guests who seek multi-sports adventure, romance, luxurious pampering, custom-made boots, women-only getaways and ultimate honeymoons. The cuisine is outstanding, with a Michelin-trained chef and pastry chef/chocolatiers. Breakfast and five-course dinners are included in the rates. Kristiania Lech is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, as well as the Virtuoso group of select properties. Open December through April.
