At the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof we do everything we can to work sustainably for planet earth and your health. We want to live in harmony with nature while not neglecting the comfort and well-being of our guests. With our extensive measures for climate protection, the use of environmentally friendly materials and the promotion of regional products, we want to take a pioneering role and inspire others to also work for a sustainable future.
Ayurveda is sustainable
The six pillars of European Ayurveda® have a common goal - to bring your body and mind back into balance and at the same time into harmony with nature. Because one thing is certain: If the powerful structure of our environment is out of balance, we humans deprive ourselves of one of the most important sources of healing. So that you can feel really good, sustainability and environmental protection have top priority at the European Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof.
Measures for Planet Earth
CO2 emissions play a major role in driving climate change. That's why we demonstrably save CO2 and rely on sustainable measures wherever possible. In 2023, we were recognized for our efforts by Vitalpin Klimainvestment, the promotional award for climate protection and sustainability in the Alpine region. However, we are not resting on this success, but strive to further reduce our CO2 emissions: To heat our buildings and rooms, we use green electricity from sustainable sources, harnessed with the help of heat pumps. In the future, we will complement this sustainable practice with a photovoltaic system.
Healthy and "Green" in and around the Sonnhof
At a resort like the Sonnhof, there are many areas where sustainable and climate-friendly actions can have an impact. When cleaning our rooms and premises, for example, we rely on effective microorganisms. In this way, we avoid the use of chemicals and microplastics. In the kitchen and in all other work areas, we use recyclable, natural or reusable materials and containers to reduce waste. Our goal is to establish the most environmentally friendly and sustainable way of working in all areas of the Sonnhof.
Regional and ecological
An important aspect for us is also the selection of our food and products. We source fresh produce from our family farm, which operates pesticide-free and to the highest animal welfare standards. Whenever possible, we use locally sourced products to strengthen the local economy and reduce our environmental footprint. In our kitchen, we offer primarily vegetarian and vegan dishes. In addition, a mountain water source provides us with fresh, clear water.
In order to further reduce our CO2 emissions, we rely on sustainable mobility. Within the framework of the Beecar E-Carsharing of the Kufsteiner Land as well as through the use of e-bikes we are mobile and contribute to the reduction of emissions. Because we also want to preserve for you and our families the incomparable beauty of the region in which we live and work: Around Sonnhof you will find high-energy places that invite you to recharge your batteries. Forest bathing and meditation are beneficial for your health. So that future generations can also enjoy the untouched nature, we donate 5 euros per booked Ayurveda treatment to the tree project "Grow my tree".
