Immersed within the forests of South Tyrol, this adults-only 5* mountain retreat is a luxurious hideaway, found 1,800m above sea level, complemented by panoramic views of the UNESCO Dolomites. Set within 3 towers, the hotel draws on the natural elements of its surroundings to inspire relaxation and regeneration with its pure Plose spring water, pristine mountain air, and a mild alpine climate while floor to ceiling windows capture spectacular mountain landscapes. The state-of-the-art spa is the centrepiece of the hotel, allowing guests to relax, recharge and reconnect the mind and body while the outdoor activities, hiking and cycling in the summer and skiing in the winter, will allow to work up an appetite for the delicious forest inspired cuisine.
There is a spectacular indoor to outdoor infinity pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre, cosy lounge with fireplace and yoga studio, where Wyda yoga, a centuries-old Celtic yoga, and meditation classes take place. Its prime location in the mountain forest allows the hotel to offer an outdoor haven on its doorstep as guests can access numerous hiking and biking trails in the summer or ski-in and ski-out and toboggan runs in winter. Floor to ceiling windows accentuate the breathtaking views throughout the hotel.
The FORESTIS Spa extends over an area of 2,000 m2 over 2 floors with views of the Dolomites. The facilities are extensive with an indoor and outdoor Finnish sun, bio sauna, cold water tub, two relaxation areas and a silent room where guests can find silence and peace after their sauna session. There is a tea lounge with its own curated library of eight signature tea blends from South Tyrol and light snacks. The treatment menu has been inspired by the surrounding forest with unique healing treatments based on the individually developed principle of the four trees, the four healing woods, the four healing stones and the four tree frequencies. Each of these trees - mountain pine, spruce, larch and Swiss stone pine - possesses various active ingredients, frequencies and material substances that allow the human body to regenerate deeply and effectively.
Head Chef, Roland Lamprecht, creates innovative dishes inspired from the forest and meadows. His style of cooking blends tradition with modern techniques and the cooking philosophy is based on variety, nature and authenticity by inspiration from local and seasonal products from the land.
Local ingredients play a key role in the bar where herbs, berries, nuts, barks, tree needles and shrubs come from the surrounding forests to give all drinks a special touch.
The rooftop bar is located in the middle of the three wooden towers and is the highest rooftop bar in the world due to its location. An open lounge area with a fire pit forms the centre of the bar making it suitable all year round. From here, guests have an unrestricted and unique view of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites, making the perfect spot, especially at sunset, this will be the perfect spot for apéritifs and digestifs.
