Thanks to a great offer that was available and a desire to get out of Berlin for a few days post Christmas & NYE, we headed to Bad Saarow to stay at Villa Contessa for 2 days of relaxation. Everything was just lovely in the room, we were provided with a welcome drink and delicious apples in the room, and we were located close to the spa area, which was super handy. We spent our days either exploring around the lake (by car) or relaxing in the spa and sauna, while lounging in our robes and looking outside at the snow covered yard (or taking a nap on the lovely bed!). It was always very peaceful and relaxed, and we only saw other guests at breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was a large buffet, which many options of hot / cold foods and eggs made fresh for you (all German style though) and dinner was more a la carte style, which was quite delicious as well, though vegetarian options were limited for my partner (but what they did provide was very nice for him).

First of all, we had a good weekend staying here. However, I do feel compelled to utter a few words of warning among all the praise.

I can only advise to carefully study the pictures on the website to get an idea of the styling of the place. It is completely designed in a 'Marie Antoinette' barock-style from the inside. Multiply the impression you get from the pictures by 2. Everything is gold (including the TV, which has been painted gold), ornamented, embroided and trying hard to look like Louis XIV's bedroom. Also, expect plastic, fake gold, fake everything everywhere. I took it as a joke, but it was in my opinion tasteless, and with a strong 'disney land' feeling.

Having lived in first class hotels a lot for business, it also gave me the impression that the place might qualify for the stars, but it is not a true first class hotel. Even though we had the deluxe suite, the bathroom was small and of a quality you find in a holiday in.

The food was good...
