Alpina Dolomites Gardena Health Lodge and Spa blends skiing and luxury spa treatments

Just opened this December in the Dolomites mountain region of Italy (40 km from Bolzano) is the Alpina Dolomites Gardena Health Lodge and Spa which focuses on wellness, health and spa treatments for people who love to ski, and in the spring and summer, those who love to hike. The best features of this hotel are the sleek indoor and outdoor swimming pools with stunning views over the mountains, and the restaurant with its floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic views. Located on the Alpe di Siusi, the highest plateau in Europe, you will enjoy the purest mountain air and feel as if you’re floating on a cloud.

The hotel has 56 rooms and suites, all of which are designed in contemporary neutral colors with lots of natural wood and warm, cozy fabrics. The rooms and suites range in size from 50 square metres to 150 square metres. There is a fireplace in all but the 50 square metre rooms.

For those who feel like dining in, the hotel has two restaurants: the Mountain Restaurant & Stuben (featuring Mediterranean and international dishes) and the Alpine Spa Restaurant (healthy spa cuisine). For apres-ski drinks, there is the Mountain Lodge & Bar and a Cigar Lounge.

Rates for the winter 2010-2011 season start at 149 EUR per night and 894 EUR per week.
