In South Tyrol, the German-speaking region of Italy is Ortisei, a charming and colorful traditional alpine town that is exceptionally sunny. Here, you’ll discover Hotel Adler Dolomiti Spa & Sport Resort – a luxurious holistic oasis of wellness, skiing, and local culinary delights.
Refined but not pretentious, cozy but not kitsch, the Hotel Adler Dolomiti delivers on its unique concept of holistic wellness, sport, luxury, and refined regional dining. Whether it's the thrill of epic ski terrain or simply to wind down and relax in a snowy paradise, you can easily create the perfect winter escape with a choice of various daily sport and wellness activities.
Take a deep breath of brisk alpine air as you soak in the views of the Dolomites. Point your skis downhill, and fly over perfectly groomed slopes. Or rejuvenate with a Tibetan bowl ritual in the hotel's panoramic sauna. Soak in the outdoor jacuzzi with majestic views of snowy peaks. Float in the purest, most refreshing mountain water in heated indoor and outdoor pools, complete with massage bars.
Explore the Slopes on Your Wellness Retreat
A mere 350 feet from the hotel is the Alpe di Siusi cable car: the gateway to the Pale Mountains. A UNESCO World Heritage site, these protected peaks offer some of the most stunning scenery in the world. The dramatic landscape from the top of the peak is unparalleled, and one ticket connects you to Dolomiti Superski, boasting hundreds of miles of connected slopes that joins twelve ski areas.
Sign up for the hotel's semi-private intermediate & advanced ski safari guiding. You’re paired up with local guides who know the mountains intimately. They meet you at the doorstep and whisk you away for a day of adventure and fun. If you’re not a skier or snowboarder, though, not to worry. Try tobogganing instead, or join the guided Nordic walk and winter hiking tour.
While exploring the Alpe di Siusi, ski down to the Hotel Adler Dolomiti's sister hotel, Adler Lodge Alpe, for a refined yet casual buffet lunch overlooking a snowy alpine pasture. Renew your energy with hearty local South Tyrolian specialties while taking in the stunning views on the sundeck. In Italy, it's common to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) with lunch or splash some homemade grappa into your espresso to keep you warm.
Relax and Rejuvenate with a Wellness Escape
From the Organic Authority Files
After skiing, cozy up to a crackling indoor fire surrounded by dramatic views of the Italian Dolomites. Unwind on heated water beds in peaceful relaxation zones, or sweat out impurities in the rock salt sauna. Restore your positive energy under the crystal pyramid in the heated indoor pool, or soak in the Salt Lake, where Dead Sea salts purify your skin and improve circulation.
Dedicated to holistic regeneration, weekly wellness programs are included in your stay. Energetic meridian yoga relaxes your back, fascia rolling rehydrates your cells, and aromatic spa rituals in a panoramic sauna will rejuvenate you.
The spa offers an extensive menu of holistic treatments like the Marma Energy Point massage, four-hand massage, traditional hay bath or the Acqua Detox, a bio-energetic purifying footbath. For skiers, the Myofascial Release massage relieves muscle tension after a day out on the slopes.
You can even create a personalized wellness program with guided breathing, reiki, and anti-stress treatments that include a state-of-the-art bio-electric analysis and PPG stress flow evaluation.
Taste South Tyrolian Cuisine & Wine
Although everyone speaks German in South Tyrol, don't forget that you're in Italy, home to some of the most delicious cuisine in the world. South Tyrol is currently undergoing a culinary renaissance, with local Michelin star chefs inspired by alpine herbs and heavenly fusions of traditional Austrian mountain dishes with an Italian flair. Think nettle dumplings, poppy filled ravioli, and buckwheat gnocchi. The hotel's executive chef creates delicious nutrient-dense dishes that excite the palate.
And then, of course, there's the wine. Your sommelier will lead through a tasting of excellent South Tyrolean wines made with grapes you might have never heard of like Vernatsch, Riesling Renano, and Traminer Aromatico. Pop into the hotel's wine cellar to sample local fine wines you won't find anywhere else.
