Safe Holidays in Serfaus
We are currently undergoing unusual times worldwide. At the Darrehof, we want to ensure the health and safety of all & want to enable our guests to enjoy safe and care-free holidays here with us. Certain essential safety guidelines are necessary for every one of us to be able to welcome guests to our holiday region Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis for a peaceful time-out in alpine nature.

In small retail businesses, as a guest enjoying food & beverages, and at tourist attractions guests are not required to wear a face mask. However, it is strongly recommended to wear the mask if there are larger groups of people. Due to the current precautionary situation, it is important to always carry & wear your face mask when necessary. After all, by wearing our mask we are only showing our respect and care for our fellow human beings.
Cleanliness & Hygiene
Clean rooms have always been an essential part of our Darrehof service. The same is obviously true for freshly cleaned linen, table cloths, and towels. All surfaces and all sanitary facilities throughout the entire building are regularly cleaned and disinfected. To prepare our staff for the added responsibility of ensuring health & safety, they underwent special training.
Contactless hand disinfection is available at all entrances (main entrance, boot storage room, underground parking) as well as the breakfast room and the riding stables.
Sauna Area, Indoor Swimming Pool & Children's Playroom
We can safely open most shared rooms (except steam room) during the regular opening times.
Indoor Swimming Pool: daily from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Sauna: Sunday to Friday from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
All shared common rooms undergo extensive cleaning daily. All surfaces are cleaned & disinfected, and a special fog-disinfection machine is used to disinfect shared rooms. In the sauna area and the indoor swimming pool we additionally provide disinfectant wipes for each guest to freely use. Please keep in mind the Austrian guideline of acceptable social distance of at least 1 metre, or as they call it here, the distance of at least one "baby elephant".
Due to the steam room using circulatory ventilation, we currently cannot safely open this wellness service to our guests.
The breakfast buffet for hotel guests is served in the breakfast room as a buffet as usual. To ensure health & safety, we assign each room a table for the duration of their stay with plenty of space to ensure social distance guidelines are met at all times.
Due to the importance of social distancing in the breakfast room, there is a capacity limit. We can only offer the breakfast buffet to our apartment guests if there is enough space to maintain a safe social distance.
All apartment guests who included the breakfast buffet in their booking, are already included in the seating plan for the breakfast room. In case you decided short notice to join us at the Darrehof breakfast buffet, we will try and include you in the breakfast room seating plan. In case the breakfast room is at maximum capacity, please understand the health & safety of all our guests is our primary objective.
Beware: Disinfection of your hands before enjoying our buffet is mandatory. Social distance guideline of 1 metre is to be maintained at all times.
