Hotel SEPP

Hotel SEPP’s motto is “Luxury with a twist” – the extravagant boutique and lifestyle hotel in the Austrian Maria Alm, welcoming guests aged 21 and up. The alpine hotel is nestled in the heart of the village, boasting an extensive view of the imposing mountain panorama of the Hochkönig. Hotelier Josef “Sepp” Schwaiger unites the traditional holiday atmosphere of the mountains with a certain dash of extravagance, creating a togetherness on every level. All rooms come with their own little twist – from a swing, to the record player, to the room's own projector with screen. Nothing here is conventional, not even the standard relaxation rooms: at SEPP, you can enjoy the spectacular view in the specially-converted Airstream vintage car while enjoying the warm air, high up on the roof terrace – where else? Guests wanting to cool down won’t have to go very far, as there are only a few steps to the heated rooftop infinity pool. Meanwhile next door in the fun-filled living room, feeling good isn’t only permitted, but an absolute must; fans of lie-ins can order brunch all the way until the afternoon, enjoy a delightful drink at the bar in the evenings, and play a round of billiards with fellow fun-lovers. Depending on the season, the host also invites guests on culinary expeditions as part of the “Top Chefs as Guests at SEPP” events series, and present their guests with extraordinary live cooking stations. Simply “exSEPPtional”!
