Maximum safety

Worry-free holiday

The highest standards of hygiene have always been one of our primary goals.

Our number one priority is that you have a safe and relaxing holiday.
We have put together a comprehensive concept that will ensure we can deliver this for you. We know this is especially important at times such as these.

An overview of the measures:

  • Essential requirement for your arrival:
    Tested OR Recovered OR Vaccinated
  • Information on FFP2 mask wearing
  • All employees wear an FFP2 mask to protect our guests
  • Information on mandatory social distancing in all areas
  • We ensure there is sufficient space between tables
  • Extended hours for breakfast and dinner
  • Separate (interactive) menu and wine list per table
  • Sufficient sanitising material available for guests in all areas
  • We inform you of our guidelines so we can all protect each other
  • Surfaces and areas with high traffic are frequently disinfected
  • Possibility for contactless payment
  • Relaxed cancellation terms
  • Free coronavirus cancellation insurance


It goes without saying that we adhere strictly to the guidelines of the Federal Government and will adapt these as needed when guidelines change. Our policy includes on-going evaluation and optimisation.

All these measures have established a protected environment in which we can ensure that you, our guests, can continue to enjoy your holiday or break free of worry even in these strange times.

As of 10.06.2021


Here you will find answers to questions regarding a safe and relaxing holiday at St. Martins Spa & Lodge.

We look forward to welcoming you as a guest if you can meet the conditions stated below.

Tested OR Recovered OR Vaccinated Follow the path here to further information.

2. What would the cancellation terms be for a holiday I had planned if it was subsequently affected by new changes to COVID-19 measures?

Our cancellation terms have always been very fair and will remain valid for the measures currently in force. Should there be further government restrictions, we will of course strive to provide very fair and tailored solutions when it comes to cancellations. To enable you to plan your holiday in a flexible and stress-free manner, our cancellation terms offer you maximum security.

3. Will the measures in place affect our stay? To what extent? What are these measures exactly?

At all times we strive to minimise adverse effects while at the same time ensuring that risk of infection is kept as low as possible. Minimising infection risk has of course the highest priority. Our measures in this regard concentrate on more space (distancing) and hygiene. 

4. Can we take our child with us into the usual areas?

You certainly can take your child with you into the usual areas. We also look forward to welcoming you to the new Research Station. Please be aware that all the programmes we offer in the Research Station require advance reservation.
