Our Philosophy

A new definition of luxury …

… a conscious and sustainable way of interpreting exclusivity.

We are living in a polarised world and we are currently witnessing a renaissance of consciousness – a change of paradigm. In recent years, the values and attitudes towards life of the people have undergone modifications. The only thing that is constant is change.

Golden Hill Resort has been designed to be a magic refuge for inspiration and stimulation, which make up our innermost essence.

The desire for safety and cosiness in a globalised world and the search of authenticity leads people into nature and some of them to “Südsteiermark” Nature Reserve. We combine zest for life and country pleasures with an open-minded cosmopolitan life-style.

Our mission: we are seeking to provide space for new experiences and we want you to be enthusiastic about your happy holidays, your pleasant stay in harmony with the environment and nature.

Our vision: Golden Hill Country Chalets & Suites Resort shall become a sustainable hotel business with a distinctive character and an architecture of pleasure for individualists … your private hideaway in South Styria.

Golden Hill for adults only

We are not a strict „adults only“ holiday accommodation (one can always request), but if we are true to ourselves:

Our concept focuses on adults aiming to find tranquility and a magical time full of enjoyment. Or others would like to enjoy an undisturbed honeymoon or conduct a meeting full of ideas. That is what the philosophy of „Golden Hill“ is aimed for. It does not matter wheter you are a couple, sports enthusiast, business partner or single traveller.

The needs of children are different from those of adults, as they enjoy playing, running and rollicking. This is what our concept is not aligned for, hence we therefore do not provide any child facilities. Furthermore our natural swimming pond holds big dangers.

Therefore we recommand holidays at Golden Hill for children from 13 years. We may make exceptions in particular cases, e.g. if the whole facilities are booked resp. if the booking situation allows it to do so.

What is meant by “Architecture of Pleasure”

Sustainability is our heartfelt concern, regardless of all visions and innovations. Therefore, we rely on energy-efficient construction methods and a biological architecture. Sustainability also means, among other, that we are striving to preserve the existing architecture as far as possible – as we did when converting the old farmhouse into “Steinfuchs” Cottage, or when building the Loft in solid timber on the foundations of the barn.

Our new chalets and suites will be built in solid timber, too. The buildings will therefore meet the strictest standards as to resource- and energy-efficiency. This does not only give us a good feeling, but will also make you feel marvellously comfortable during your stay with us. Besides, the solar and photovoltaic plant as well as the use of ground heat provide both a good conscience and a pleasant warmth. In its entirety, it is a coherent concept, which will make your stay at Golden Hill Resort a pleasant experience.
