There is a bar area, restaurant, and various chill-out areas where you can play the piano, darts, or other games they have available for you. You can always grab a book and curl up by the fire if you'd prefer some time to yourself.

Beautiful grounds with endemic plants and trees boast incredible views where you can absorb the towering mountains during the daytime or relax on a blanket looking up at the starry sky at night.

With free sauna use and the additional options for massages and other treatments, you can really offer yourself some self-care and have a spa day if this is something that appeals to you. A massage might be a great way to unwind after yoga and hikes in the area.
