Culinary Delights

Holiday in pure pleasure at the Puradies Nature Resort

A piece of home for foodies and gourmets – the natural cuisine at Puradies. Those who stay with us take a culinary walk through our mountains, through the Alps, and through the seasons. 

Always thinking holistically, committed to the Austrian Ecolabel. We Madreiters, farmers for generations on our own organic farm, bring value to the table.

Our natural kitchen philosophy

We spoil our hotel guests in the hotel restaurant with many different cozy rooms. If you are holidaying in your private Puradies Chalet, we will bring your breakfast to the chalet and you are welcome to help yourself to your afternoon snack in the hotel restaurant. The Ess:enz restaurant serves relaxed mountain cuisine.

The three cuisine lines of the Hotel Restaurant

You can read our interpretation of good food from the three cuisine lines of our natural hotel kitchen. “Regional Genius” focuses on local and regional organic products, even from our own Organic Farm at Puradies. “Mediterranean Love” takes you across the Alps, from France to Istria, light on your feet, healthy. “Handpicked” shows you how creative and colourful vegetarian cuisine is. Evening after evening, you can put together your own individual menu.

Relaxed gourmet cuisine in the Ess:enz restaurant

We celebrate the gifts of nature and travel back to the future. “Garden of Eating” is the motto, and you are right in the middle of the show kitchen.

 For chalet guests who want to dine out at the Nature Resort, for hotel guests who are looking for a culinary highlight, and for visitors from out of town.

Chalet cuisine

Mountain holidays in your own chalet have become a classic, but a chalet connected to a four-star superior lifestyle hotel has a striking uniqueness. Retreat, hide away from the world for a short while and entrust us with your craving for pure natural cuisine. We serve regional cuisine in the chalet, and if you like, eat out in the nature resort, at the Ess:enz restaurant, with its 2 Michelin stars.

"Freiraum" Bar, the serene beauty

An architecture magazine would probably write of pure elegance and down-to-earthness at the same time. The sculpture made of 16,000 pieces of oak is striking, of mysterious beauty and yet approachable. That is what wood, the miracle material, does. Warm, supple and simply grounded. What sets it apart are the Alps Inspired Drinks. And maybe soon you.
