Tucked away in the serenity of the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park, the Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa welcomes its guests to a retreat for mind and body. A unique resort dedicated to health, wellbeing and authentic cuisine.
By the Bostalsee Lake and the surrounding tranquillity of the lush greenery springs a place of power. Inspired by its Celtic roots, the concept of the Seezeitlodge is to provide a tailored restorative experience that caters to each guest’s specific needs…as well as their appetite. In addition to outstanding facilities, the resort offers an exceptional gastronomic experience to complement its wellbeing philosophy.
A true pearl of wellbeing and culinary delight
On-site, there are multiple options for the tastebuds: the spa bistro (with its refreshing homemade smoothies and Celtic tea blends), NOX (bar serving up signature cocktails, including its very own gin), and most notably, the concept restaurant LUMI, led by Daniel Schöfisch.
The restaurant boasts a fantastic view of the lake which pairs perfectly with its down-to-earth, yet inspirational dishes. Hotel and spa guests can enjoy an exceptional breakfast buffet, serving baked goods from the in-house bakery, as well as a wide selection of freshly prepared specialities and classics. In the evening, there is a seasonal three or four-course menu featuring sophisticated dishes (that can be adapted to suit any dietary requirements).
Reconnect with nature
In Chef Schöfisch’s kitchen, there is no room for unnecessary frills. On the contrary, he seeks taste in its purest and most authentic form: by using only locally grown produce. “I want our guests to truly appreciate the produce.” This is accentuated by the large windows which give a glimpse into the bakery and kitchen. Using a combination of old and new techniques, the team has crafted a sophisticated cuisine based on a set of principles that embrace natural surroundings and sustainability.
Accordingly, the kitchen prioritizes ecological options by consciously limiting its menu and nurturing close partnerships with 35 regional suppliers. Foodsharing limits excessive food waste and their compost system feeds their vegetable and herb garden. The goal is to become as self-sufficient as possible with the support of local farmers and suppliers.
The LUMI kitchen party
Once a year, Chef Schöfisch and the entire Seezeitlodge hosts a celebration with regional suppliers and the extended culinary world. The LUMI kitchen party is a sensational “walking-dinner”, featuring over a dozen stations where guests can see delicious food prepared before their very eyes. For this special occasion, the chef invites his culinary compatriots (namely, like-minded chefs who are eager to experiment). The event is also attended by partnering vintners and suppliers, showcasing the very best of their produce. “It’s a great opportunity to exchange with colleagues and friends from the industry”, explains Schöfisch, “but, most importantly, it’s to provide an unforgettable experience for everyone present – guests, producers and chefs alike”. The Seezeitlodge is happy to announce that the fourth LUMI Kitchen Party will be back on the 3rd and 4th of September 2023. An unforgettable fusion of culinary excellence and wellbeing.
