        "A wonderful retreat"

        This was a perfect retreat. The location is gorgeous with amazing views both at MoaAlm and on all the hikes. The accommodations were comfortable with just the right balance between having your own private space and places to hang out with other guests and staff. The food was amazing - I wish I could have them cook for me every night. And the staff were so kind and thoughtful throughout the entire trip. I will definitely be back!

        "Amazing trip"

        Everything was amazing!

        The location of MoaAlm is great, I'll always remember the view. The people, the food, the yoga sessions and hikes were all great. It really felt like a home away from home. We were lucky and had amazing weather the whole time, which made the experience even better. I'll definitely go back again, maybe next time during winter :)

        The remote location and the peacefulness. The lodge itself was decorated and managed in a way that promoted well being.

        The hiking was sensational.

        The location of MoaAlm is stunning, with unbelievable views of the Tyrol Alps, fresh mountain air and icy cold water that springs from the tap. The entire week was memorable for the fantastic hikes, the relaxing yoga, the delicious food and the great company of new friends. Incredible adventure and retreat in just one week!

        "Excellent hiking experience"

        Hiking - Martin made our holidays! He took good care of the group, that we are properly equipped, planned the hiking tours to be the best for each day and took us to places where we could have never gone without him. The best hiking experience so far, worth going there just for the hiking.

        Accommodation - very clean spacious room with fantastic view over the Alps.

        Food - especially the secong part of the week. Kersty and Cregg made delicious dinners, Kerstys hospitality stood out. The breakfast is excellent, all fresh and tasty.

        The week was a perfect balance of relaxation, yoga, fresh air and nourishing food. Polly and Craig were terrific hosts who enaured you felt very much at home in cozy Moalam and Nellys cooking and yoga classes were incredible. Certainly a week to remember!

        "Amazing experience"

        The whole package was amazingly great: the staff is considerate and gentle; the food very healthy and ever so nice; the guide for the hikings is careful; the nature with its mountains só beautiful. The house is beautiful, clean and has all one would need or want and a bit more with the hot tub.

        "Geweldige ervaring"

        Alles wat beter dan ik had verwacht. We hadden een kleine groep van 6 dames. Een fijne sfeer en het personeel was echt heel aardig en gezellig.

        De wandelingen waren echt prachtig. Martin is een fijne gids die veel verteld over de omgeving en natuur. Hij bouwt de wandelingen goed op en we hebben echt zo’n mooie omgeving gezien en wandelingen gedaan.

        De yogalessen waren erg fijn en Rosie paste zich goed aan aan de groep. Hele complete lessen.

        Het eten wat echt super lekker en er werd echt goed voor ons gezorgd. Heerlijke taart in de middag na de wandeling en heerlijk 3-gangen diner.

        Al met al een geweldige ervaring met lieve en leuke mensen.

        "Great for meeting interesting people during a mountain holid"

        The amazing food, the homely vibe of the place and the serene surroundings, all the interesting people, the lovely music being played in the lounge, the board games, the opportunity to see and experience the Alpine lifestyle, the relaxing and friendly atmosphere, the hot tub....

        It’s a truly unique and memorable holiday experience. The snowy alps is super stunning. I’ll definitely come back during the summer season if possible

        "Peace, beauty, fun and food."

        Every aspect of this holiday was fabulous. The owners and all the staff made us feel very welcome in their home, sharing mealtimes, joining us in the hot tub and occasionally meeting up for a bit of skiing. Martin, the activity leader, guided us on snow shoe and cross country skiing outings with endless patience and his knowledge of wild life and local customs added further interest. Rosie’s morning yoga sessions were wonderful-her sessions provided just the right balance of challenge and relaxation and she was a warm and lovely person. There was a great deal of flexibility around plans for each day- all preferences and abilities were accommodated. The meals were delicious and plentiful and the daily freshly made cakes were the scrumptious- very welcome after a hard day of exercise. Decorated in a homely Scandi style, the rooms were large and comfortable and mine had a beautiful view from the balcony. Rodelling down to the minibus added an extra element of fun to the mornings.

        "The Ultimate Winter Getaway! "

        I am so pleased that I eschewed conventional yoga breaks in hot climes, in favour of MoaAlm in the stunningly beautiful Austrian Alps. The week I spent here in December was the ultimate relaxing getaway from the daily grind of London life – bringing with it the opportunity to try new winter sports, improve fitness, sample delicious vegetarian and vegan food and make new friends. We were looked after superbly by MoaAlm’s large team and the family vibe was wonderful. I have not laughed so much in ages. After a lovely morning yoga session, we largely chose to do activities as a group – including hiking, snow-shoeing and cross country skiing with Martin. However, we were equally free to do our own thing, supported by the team as desired. I hadn’t downhill skied for 5 years and it was fantastic to spend some time with Polly, Craig and Xania on the slopes over a 2 day period. After returning to scrumptious tea and cake each day, we could relax in our rooms before dinner – or equally flop downstairs with a book or dash outside for the most surreal hot tub experience! All in all, a wonderful, reviving break and I cannot recommend MoaAlm highly enough.

        "One of the best vacations we´ve had!"

        I and my husband have spent our winter vacation in MoaAlm one week before Christmas and we enjoyed it a lot!

        We have been profoundly impressed by the surroundings in the Alps, the accommodation, the way the retreat was organized as well as by the staff.

        The rooms were quite big and very cozy and downstairs you got access to a large living-dining room with a bar where you can relax, read a book, play society games, socialize or have dinner.

        We loved the combination of different daily snow activities (ski, hiking, cross-country ski, snow shoeing, etc.), "hot-tubing" and yoga. This made the holiday very exciting and relaxing at the same time. We felt totally refreshed, energized and full of motivation when we got back home in Germany.

        The food was also awesome, made of wholesome ingredients and vegetarian.

        It was also great to meet new people joining the retreat and we totally felt like part of the MoaAlm family, thanks to the great people who are organizing it!

        p.s. we as well fully appreciate pet-friendly environment and the help we got with our dog!

        "A perfect week"

        What to say about MoaAlm. Perfect location. Perfect views. Rooms were amazing great size and everything you need. Food was just the best, far far better than ever expected.

        The different activities were amazing, not going to lie I was absolutely shattered but still loved it.

        Haven't tried so many new things in ages!

        The excursions are planned so perfectly.

        One of the best things though is the amazing bunch of people you get to share the experience with. The team at MoaAlm really do make you feel part of the family, it can be nerve wracking doing something like this alone but you certainly don't feel that way. As a novice to everything except yoga I felt comfortably encouraged to try everything.

        One of the best weeks ever was so sad to leave.

        Thank you everyonr at MoaAlm!

        What else would you wish for? Read the offer's details, it is in there.

        Sleep down in the valley is just not the same than up in the mountains: these silent, massive rocks where space opens, as if allowing eternity to touch the present moment.

        What a great week we spent at MoaAlm over New Year. The first thing that you should know is that all the others reviews are 100% correct. This place deserves its 5 stars - it is a beautiful place with fantastic people and wonderful food. Barbara, Hubert, Xania, Craig and the whole MoaAlm team really go out of their way to ensure you have the best time. Attentive but never overbearing. My daughter (11) and my wife had never skied before and so greatly benefitted from Barbara's 1-2-1 ski tuition. So we skied, hot-tub'd did Yoga each morning, went hiking, snowshoeing, etc, etc. The food is really excellent (thank you Dodijn!) with plenty of vegetarian options and the beer is great too (thanks Lukas!). Our daughter fell in love with beautiful Nelson and Zora, the two dogs.

        We flew into Innsbruck, picked up a hire car and set the sat nav for Kals am Grossglockner. It took us 2.5 hours going and 3 hours coming back (lots of snow so lower speed).

        We're already planning our next stay!

        We have now visited in both winter and summer and can highly recommend for either season.

        We were guided on excellent walks and snow shoeing expeditions, given tuition in cross country skiing (shame the snow didn't last so we could have tried it some more), and explored the mountains and nature under the guidance of the excellent team at MoaAlm. Barbara gave us some great and varied yoga classes, a great benefit either before or after our daily activities.

        The food, which is predominantly vegetarian, was excellent and plentiful all week, including some divine afternoon cakes.

        The rooms, are large, comfortable, well equipped and just the right temperature, in both winter and summer.

        For our summer trip the hot tub wasn't in place but it was for our winter visit and what a plus that is. There cannot be many, if any better hot tub views in the Alps, sitting in 40 degrees water overlooking nothing but snow covered mountains (even in a windy snowing evening) was extra special.

        We highly recommend MoaAlm in its wonderfully serene and scenic setting for a very relaxingly active weeks holiday. Everything is thought of and all equipment provided was excellent. The time taken to get to this remote outpost of tranquillity is well worth the effort!!

        Moaalm was exactly what I was looking for to unwind after a stressful few months. Xania and Craig are brilliant hosts and they have found a fantastic team of people to run the place and to make everyone feel at home. There is beautiful scenery on the doorstep and a range of outdoor activities on offer as well as great skiing for intermediates like me. There is plenty to do if you are super-fit and adventurous but if you're not then the are easy walks and the team will adjust to your level so you can get outside and enjoy the mountains. The house is cosy and has great views - there is a boot room for heating ski boots etc. and a hot tub outside for apres-ski. Yoga was good too - with proper grippy mats and all necessary equipment and Barbara was a lovely teacher. The food was delicious and I gave up trying not to eat the daily cake on day one as the smell of it baking was too good. There is really nice Austrian wine, a proper coffee machine and a range of schnapps on the bar. If you like dogs you will love Nelson and Zora and if you're not keen don't worry they will stay away from you - they're very mellow, just like the rest of the place. Would love to return.

        Very much lived up to and surpassed the brochure. Highly recommended. Guests were really treated like "house guests" by Xania, Craig, Barbara and Hubert and their team. The food was mainly vegetarian but delicious, even for an avowed meat eater. The scenery is stunning and MoaAlm is right in the heart of it on a plateau 1, 000 ft above Kals.
