Design hotspot by the lake
Anyone who knows the Porto Bello from the past will hardly recognize it: everything is new and different. The terraces, the seating, the kitchen, the colors and the atmosphere in the restaurant and lounge. The motto is "Carinthia, a modern interpretation". And that theme runs through the architecture, through the design and colors, to the kitchen and clothing of the employees.
Alles fließt. Alles schwebt. Alles in Motion und Emotion pur.
In the colors of the Carinthian flag, managing director Helena Ramsbacher and interior designer Vendula Prosch set design trends in the new Porto Bello. Red tulips bloom on plates. Yellow, red and white lanterns hang from the ceiling. Red and yellow fabrics cover the bar stools and lounge furniture. Staff members, wearing white sneakers and short aprons in yellow, red and white, serve homemade pasta and Wörthersee fish.
Wittmann, KFF and Taitù as permanent guests at the Porto Bello restaurant
From the furnishings to the dishes, everything in the new lake restaurant is design. The design team opted for seating furniture from Wittmann, KFF, Royal Botania and Fast. The workmanship took place in colors according to the theme "Carinthia, a modern interpretation" and surprises with all sorts of bold style elements. Pleasure for the eyes is guaranteed as well as pleasure for the palate from the cuisine.
See the flow on the porcelain tableware by Taitù
EMOTION. This is the name of the porcelain series from the well-known Milanese company for porcelain and tableware Taitù. In the look of Flemish paintings, the beauty of nature is shown on the colorful dishes: tulips bloom, butterflies fly and snails with fringes interpret “slow food” in an artistic way.
It's cool and exciting on the new terrace by the hotel's own marina. True to the motto, the kitchen is interpreted in a modern Carinthian style. In the brand new Lohberger kitchen, delicious pasta and fish dishes are prepared under the direction of head chef Richard Hessl. The pasta is homemade with a new pasta machine. The fish comes fresh from lake Wörthersee.
Favorite places on the balcony, at the bar and in the lounge
It sits sublime on the balcony above the terraces. And the feeling of floating arises a little - above things, above the water, closer to the sky. Probably the new favorite place for many, if it weren't for the casual lounge and bar à la Harrods. Here, as there, you can eat very casually: small snacks or light summer dishes from the Alps-Adriatic cuisine. And of course there is a large selection of classic, trendy and cool drinks for a romantic sundowner at the most beautiful spot on lake Wörthersee.
"We had just one night after a cracking wedding nearby in Seefels. The staff were fantastic and the room we had was perfect. The whole place is perfect - especially the breakfast balcony overlooking the lake and the boat bar/restaurant on the lake."CousinD_13, June 2018 • TripAdvisor
"Not the first time we've stayed at this grand lakeside hotel, and it won't be the last. After a long 3 day motorcycle ride from the UK it felt familiar and comfortable to be back at the Seefels. If anything the staff have upped their game to even better service levels, the food is superb, breakfast a treat and in the glamorous bar the chief bar-tender is a true delight. Room was sparkling clean and the location is truly stunning. Reception staff back up smiles with Austrian efficiency. Can't fault it."John, September 2019 • Tripadvisor
"My family started taking me here in the 1960s. Have visited numerous times but only between June and September [high season] but never a zoo of tourists. Five star service, cuisine and old fashioned Austrian Gemuetlichkeit. Romantic, quiet and lots of water sports and hiking around the Alps. Visiting for sure in September when things quiet down."DoubleDee2020, March 2019 • Tripadvisor

"My wife and I stayed for a week at the Schloss Seefels. Fantastic hotel, very clean, spacious room (suite with lake view and balcony), beautiful lake, good restaurants, friendly staff, good massage. It comes at a price but it is clearly worth it."RudyD06, August 2019 • Tripadvisor
"Great setting, right on the shores of the Worthersee lake. Rooms are clean and modern. Balconies have views of the lake. Service is generally very good. The highlight is their spa which all guests have access to, including multiple saunas and steam baths and a whirpool."Matt Hellin, August 2018 • Google
