History and Philosophy
The new name of the „CESTA GRAND“, formerly the Hotel Europäischer Hof Bad Gastein is derived from the Czech word „cesta“ which means the voyage or travel. Further it is close to the english word „zest“ which stands for enthusiasm and pleasure.
Just as we understand life as a journey or as a path, the history of the „Europäischer Hof” is also a kind of journey: from the traditional hotel in the Gastein Valley, one of the most beautiful and impressive mountain landscapes in Europe, to the contemporary, cosmopolitan hotel, for people to pause and to recharge, in front of the impressive and at the same time picturesque setting of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
To strengthen the well-being, to collect inspiration or to find a way to yourself. More than ever, today our guest, with all his individual wishes and needs, is at the center of our four-star superior hotel. The four pillars that line the path of the CESTA GRAND Aktivhotel & Spa are therefore called Wellness, Selfness, Culinary and Sport. The central element of each of these aspects is a lived individuality and flexibility. This is done to grant our guests flexibility and room to experience the joyful side of life and to let them develop themselves . Because while the course of events is often prescribed for us in everyday life, the CESTA GRAND Aktivhotel & Spa in Bad Gastein should be a place where every guest chooses their own way - supported by good spirits who work in the kitchen, spa and wellness area and service create the right framework conditions, flexibly and individually. The CESTA GRAND Aktivhotel & Spa offers every guest a holistic well-being experience.
