The nine spectacular suites have state of the art technology, Minotti designed furnishings and a private balcony and terrace with stunning mountain views. Three of the suites can also be adapted to accommodate families.
Effortlessly blending the best of the old with the new, Blumen Haus Lech has been thoughtfully designed by Reinhard Strasser to combine tradition with exceptional style, comfort and ultramodern technology. Clad with reclaimed wood from the Tyrolian region and with a copper roof according to Alpine tradition, this is a hotel that pays respect to its history, yet understands its guest’s desire for modern luxuries.
Guests staying at the Blumen Haus Lech will be treated to 24-hour guest services, a bottle of Pol Roger Rose Brut Champagne on arrival , INDIGO ski equipment and servicing, daily breakfast, lunch, champagne afternoon tea and a la carte dinner at Marmotta (or in-suite if you prefer), mini-bar, transfers to and from ski lifts and complimentary use of the spa, Technogym and infrared cabin facilities.
The hotel hosts the exquisite Marmotta restaurant by Steven Ellis and the Executive Chef Barbara Mairhofer (trained by Gordon Ramsey) will treat guests to exceptional dishes with a British twist and long, luxurious dining experiences.
Guests can relax and enjoy the superb wellness facilities which include a spa treatment suite, hair salon, indoor infinity pool with a current stream and whirlpool, two saunas and a steam room. Other facilities include a state of the art Technogym and cardio area and a hypoxic chamber, which allows guests to train at an altitude of 5,600 meters, a unique type of training popular with professional athletes.
Blumen Haus is located just on the outskirts of Lech, with a driver service getting guests seamlessly to the village and ski area. The new Flexenbahn lift connection closes the loop on the Arlberg ski area, connecting Lech and St Anton and giving skiers access to 305km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts, making it Austria's largest interconnected ski area.

There are so many challenges for skiers to complete in the Arlberg area, such as 'The White Ring' in Lech, the 'Tannberg Ring' in Warth and the long downhill piste in St Anton, 'the White Thrill', the new connection means the entrance of a new skiing experience, the 'Run of Fame' which boasts 65km of downhill skiing and an altitude difference of 18,000 meters.

Location & Directions
Blumen Haus Lech is located in the resort of Lech, Austria, a mountain village and ski resort in the Bludenz district in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg on the banks of the river Lech. It is part of the Arlberg region.
When to go
Lech has an enviable reputation for its snow and averages about seven meters over the season. The Eastern Alps frequently benefit from early snow and the largely pastoral terrain does not need a hugely deep base to offer great skiing conditions. As a result, Lech frequently offers some of the best skiing in the Alps early in the season. The microclimate means that snowfalls are more prolific than in many other resorts and with plenty of skiing above 2000 meters, conditions can be great right up until the end of the season.
