Stars, toques, lilies – the highest awards for Hotel Ronacher
5 Star Diamond Award for Thermenhotel Ronacher
On 8 November 2013 we received the highest accolade that is awarded in the hotel industry for a hotel and service: the "5 Star Diamond Award". The Oscar of all awards. This award is presented by the "American Academy of Hospitality Sciences", whose chairman of the board is Donald Trump. Oscar winner Maximilian Schell paid us the compliment of giving a laudation.
Relax Guide – 4 lilies for the Ronacher wellness oasis
The internationally recognised Relax Guide once again awarded the Ronacher Health & SPA Resort with 4 lilies, the highest wellness rating for Austrian health and spa resort hotels.
Number 1 in the Top 15 hiking and spa hotels in Austria!
"a fabulous atmosphere, outstanding massages, very attentive staff, fantastic breakfast buffet,…" extract from the Relax Guide 2015
"This kind of award is a very special honour for us and motivates us to continue in the same vein." Simone Ronacher
Gault Millau – 1 toque
The Ronacher received 1 toque and 14 points from Gault Millau, Austria's leading restaurant guide. Extract from the assessment by the anonymous testers: "The ambience exudes an understated and comfortable elegance, the reception by the service personnel was refreshingly warm and sincere. The main course was a bow to Austria's preference for boiled beef. The meat almost fell apart with just a waft of the knife and the fried potatoes managed the perfect balance of crunchy outside and creamy inside…"
Falstaff – 90 points and 3 forks
The Falstaff restaurant guide has rated the cooking and restaurant at Hotel Ronacher outstanding once again. In the current edition testers commended the work of chef Oberrauter with 90 out of 100 points and with 3 out of 4 forks. The "top-notch vegetarian and vegan menus" were especially highlighted as well as the general mention of "sophisticated and sensitive dishes".
Sunday Times Travel Magazine – 50 best spas in the world
The Sunday Times Travel Magazine ranked the Ronacher Health & SPA Resort among the 50 best spas in the world. The jury called the Ronacher a place with a special atmosphere – beneficial healing thermal springs trickle in the middle of this gentle alpine region.
Ranked by the Sunday Times among the "50 best spas in the world", this was reason enough for the Austrian "Wellness Magazin" lifestyle magazine to award Thermenhotel Ronacher with the Wellness Oscar. However, hotel boss Simone Ronacher is convinced this would not even be possible without the staff: "An exemplary hotel also needs exemplary employees who have a high level of professional expertise and a compassionate heart that likes making other people happy."
"Golden Coffee Bean" from Falstaff
How wonderful – Thermenhotel Ronacher receives the "Golden Coffee Bean"! The "Golden Coffee Bean" from the Falstaff gourmet guide for top quality coffee was ceremoniously handed over to us by the publisher Mr Rosam. Sandra Pires also did not miss out on being one of the first people to congratulate your favourite wellness oasis, Thermenhotel Ronacher, and Mrs Simone Ronacher on this wonderful award.
This award is a special honour for us as the Austrian coffee culture is particularly dear to our hearts. Last year roughly 17,000 indulgence savvy testers from the Falstaff gourmet club were out and about in Austria rating expertise in coffee. We are therefore really delighted that we were able to particularly stand out with the coffee quality at the Ronacher and accept this great award.
"Golden Tea Leaf" from Gault Millau & Teekanne
Simone and Markus Ronacher are constantly expanding their "gourmet empire", most recently with a delicatessen buffet where specialities from the hotel's own cottage industry are offered: delicatessen, jams & teas.
Anonymous testers from the Gault Millau gourmet guide have awarded the Ronacher with the "Golden Tea Leaf" for this reason. Bernhard Zoller, CEO of the tea producer Teekanne, was particularly taken by Ronacher's "Elves' garden herbal tea". The Gault Millau publishers Martina and Karl Hohenlohe invited us to the award ceremony for the "Golden Tea Leaf".
