Beach fun without weather limitations: The unique combination of an idyllic outdoor swimming lake and exclusive indoor spa facilities at St. Martins means that guests will find the perfect pastime regardless of weather conditions. The comfy sunbeds under straw-thatched parasols looking out onto the savannah-like pannonic landscape are situated just a stone’s throw away from the Beach Bar and the Chill Out Lounge, where every day at noon a barbeque is fired up to complete the holiday atmosphere.
“Our lake boasts crystal clear waters, it couldn’t be more inviting” says Hofmann. “For some this means relaxation, for others it’s the perfect opportunity to start the day with a bit of exercise. With it being a proper lake in depth and size there’s ample room not only for a dip but also for proper sports”.
