Kathrin and Christian Sersch, the Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa’s proprietors, have created a wellness resort inspired by the philosophy of inspiration and power. Imagination, spirit and energy are all essential elements – creating a pleasant space with a peaceful and soothing ambiance. The hotel is located on a hill above the Bostalsee Lake in the federal state of Saarland. It’s an ideal retreat for those seeking relaxation amidst the natural beauty of the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park, which has strong links to the region’s Celtic past.
This connection to the Celts runs throughout the entire hotel. Elements of Celtic medicine and natural rituals can be seen in the Seezeit Spa as well as in the wellness treatments and sauna rituals. An outdoor platform has been created in the forest for yoga and meditation classes. Heated indoor and outdoor infinity-style pools with lake views, indoor and outdoor panoramic sauna areas – also with views across the lake, an aroma steam bath for ladies only and a spa bistro complete the wellness and spa experience.
Activity lovers have a choice of enjoying the facilities in the hotel’s state of the art Seezeitlodge gym or trying out some of the other activities like swimming, diving, sailing, surfing or stand-up paddle boarding in the lake. There’s also a golfing green to practise some shots or the hotel’s own 9-hole golf course (Bostalsee) – located only 5km from the Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa.
The Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa’s cuisine is light and natural. High-quality, seasonal meals using herbs from the hotel’s kitchen garden are served in the Lumi restaurant. The Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa’s chefs use a classical method of preserving foods like pickling, smoking or fermenting.
The Celtic Seezeitlodge Hotel & spa’s outdoor sauna village has a spacious area for rituals, a fireplace and a relaxation room with lake views. There’s also an earth sauna, meaning an underground sauna, a low-temperature sauna (known as a Bio Sauna in German) and a herbal sauna.
The Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa is located in the St Wendel Land region close to Bostalsee Lake. Celtic culture plays an important role and can be found not only in the Seezeit Spa’s signature treatments, and sauna rituals, the theme also continues throughout the hotel’s interior design. Traditional Celtic festivals like the Midsummer Celebration, Moon Festival or the Walpurgis Night come back to life in the hotel.
Seezeit Spa guests will experience pure relaxation in the 2,700m² spa area. The spa includes spacious heated infinity-style indoor and outdoor pools, which have stunning views over the countryside and a panoramic sauna with a fabulous view across the lake.
