The famous Mayr method for intestinal care
Above all, the center is renowned for its Mayr method, developed by Dr. F.X Mayr for regain a healthy intestine. The principle of this diet is not only to lose weight, but above all to modify eating behavior and adopt a new approach to food. You then need to continue your efforts at home to ensure that the slimming effects and digestive benefits you’ve noticed last over time.
This diet goes back to the origin of the word diet, which comes from the Greek “diaita”, meaning not diet or fasting, but “way of life or lifestyle”. The Mayr method is based on naturopathy, with three phases: cleansing, revitalization and stabilization.
Through a healthy diet, state-of-the-art treatments and body training, the overall aim of this cure is to increase the sense of well-being, strengthen the immune system and improve mental and physical performance. Needless to say, the center boasts a highly qualified team of healthcare professionals and therapists specializing in modern medicine.
A medi-spa nestled on the shores of a turquoise lake
Let yourself be carried away by the magic of Lake Wörthersee: a gentle breeze, the scent of summer perfumes, the lapping of the waves tickling your ears… This Austrian lake boasts an unspoilt landscape and a Mediterranean climate, with an average summer water temperature of 25°C !
Situated right on the lake and surrounded by lush greenery, the VIVAMAYR Maria Wörth is ideally located for relaxation.
To reach the VIVAMAYR center from our shores, Ljubljana airport in Slovenia is just a 50-minute drive away. Another option, probably more convenient for direct flights, is to drive to Venice and rent a car, as the hotel is about a 3-hour drive from Venice. Finally, for those who want to go directly to the nearest place, Klagenfurt airport is 20 minutes away.
While the recommended minimum stay is 7 nights, the average stay is actually 10 days. However, a stay of two or even three weeks is ideal for achieving a deeper transformation.
The hotel’s 46 modern rooms and suites are bright and comfortable. Soothing decor and a few colorful touches create a contemporary setting, with a resplendent view of the sparkling turquoise blue of Lake Wörthersee .
Almost all six categories of rooms and suites offer lake views, except for the two smallest (35 and 45 m²). The two apartments and the 187 m² villa also open onto the lake, with a private pontoon.
Here, it’s the little details that make the difference, and VIVAMAYR has thought of everything to be consistent with its health objective. For example, each accommodation comes with a hot water bottle to put on your stomach, and a reusable water bottle to carry around the resort.
Wellness, sport and beauty
As you will have understood, VIVAMAYR’s main objective is your health. A 1,000 m² medical spa enables you to consult a variety of therapists and doctors, and enjoy a range of treatments and massages. At VIVAMAYR, traditional practices meet state-of-the-art technology. Here, Shiatsu and Feldenkrais rub shoulders with laser and electrolysis therapies.
Yoga is also an important part of this medi-spa, with daily classes available. You can also indulge in other sporting activities in the gym, with a view of Lake Wörthersee.
The spa offers access to various saunas, infrared light cabins and a beautiful indoor pool. Wellness continues outside, with a private beach in summer and a wide range of water-based activities such as stand-up paddling. If you’re more in the mood for land-based activities, the hotel provides bicycles, hiking poles and even ski boots in winter. In short, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities.
People also come to this renowned center for a beauty makeover. Particular attention is paid to the face, with numerous treatments recommended by the active detox program. Several techniques and products are used: ultrasound, exfoliation with microdermabrasion, and nourishing products from Dr.Hauschka. Barbara Sturm.
For a sustainable transformation
The VIVAMAYR experience goes far beyond the stay itself. In fact, even before you’ve packed your suitcase, you’ll need to begin your wellness transformation. About three weeks before your departure, a surprise will arrive in your mailbox: a stool analysis kit! In fact,analyzing your microbiome is a very important aspect of personalizing your skin care. A blood test is also recommended. Your results are detailed during your first consultation with the doctor, and are decisive in the creation of your tailor-made wellness program.
You will have to choose the main theme of your program:
- “classic” for long-term good health
- “active detox” to free yourself from toxins
- “stress control” to learn how to better manage stressful everyday situations
- “immune boost” to boost the immune system
- “weight care” to find your ideal weight
Each program is structured around nutrition, wellness activities and therapies to be chosen according to the needs and objectives defined at the start of the stay by the doctor.
Customized dietary cuisine
As diet is one of the three pillars of each program, everyone receives personalized nutritional advice and a meal plan right from the start of their stay. So there’s no need to consult the menu – there isn’t one!
The resort’s cuisine is carefully prepared to give you vitality. VIVAMAYR has created its own culinary charter for selecting and cooking the finest ingredients. Of course, local provenance and organic farming are just as important as the nutritional value of each product. Always elegantly presented, the plates are nourishing and balanced despite their low calorie content.
VIVAMAYR has urban consultation centers in Vienna and London. Customers who have already stayed at one of the brand’s hotels can extend their wellness transformation with one-off consultations and treatments afterwards (on site, or by video-conference for those living in Paris, for example). Dietary advice is a fundamental element in maintaining a healthy diet once back at home.
We also offer stays at VIVAMAYR Altaussee. The health programs are similar, so if your heart wavers between the two establishments, make sure you choose the natural setting you prefer.
