Adler Spa Resort Dolomiti *****
In the pedestrian precinct in the centre of the town of Ortisei, in the heart of the Gardena Valley in the Dolomites, the Adler Spa Resort Dolomiti is an oasis of relaxation and wellbeing immersed in 9000 square meters of parkland, with a lake and spaces for resting and sunbathing. With over 200 years of history, the hotel was originally an inn bought in 1810 by an ancestor of the family that still manages it today. The owners have seen the property grow and evolve into the largest wellness centre in the Dolomites. Indoor and outdoor pools, saunas, salt caves, spaces for massages and beauty treatments, a 350m2 gym, and relaxation areas with panoramic views, are just some of the facilities available at the spa, which offers a range of wellness programs both inside and outside the property. The cuisine is also health-oriented and the restaurant serves nourishing and genuine dishes for all tastes and dietary requirements. The hotel is also suitable for families with young children, with dedicated spaces and daily entertainment programs. It is the ideal base for exploring the Gardena Valley, which in the summer offers a vast network of hiking paths and trails, and in the winter becomes a skier’s paradise, with access to the Dolomiti Superski resort.
The Adler Spa Resort Dolomiti boasts the largest Wellness Centre in the region. There are two freshwater pools, one outdoor and one indoor, both heated and with a hydro-massage zone. There are the salt grottos, where you’ll find the underground salt lakes, and a large Jacuzzi in the gardens that offers splendid views of the Dolomites. The spa offer continues with a range of different saunas, including a panoramic Finnish sauna, a sauna with a rose-scented caldarium, a bio-sauna with hay, a steam bath in a cave featuring floral essences, the inhalation sauna in the salt caves and the oriental Rasul bath. The wellness centre also offers a menu of treatments that include massages, therapeutic, oriental, and ayurvedic treatments, and wellness rituals, after which guests can relax in the comfortable lounge areas. The hotel has a Fitness Centre that covers 350m2 and contains the latest gym equipment. Guests can choose to attend the group courses, make use of the personal trainer, and take part in the guided outdoor activities.
The 100 bedrooms of the Hotel Adler Dolomiti, characterised by the use of natural materials and Alpine timber, are categorised into single or double rooms, Junior and Family Suites, most of which offer panoramic views of the Dolomites. All rooms and suites have a private bathroom with a bath, a digital TV with internet connection, a minibar, and free Wi-Fi connection.
The gastronomic offer of the Hotel Adler Dolomiti provides a healthy and balanced diet, starting with the breakfast of quality organic products from the surrounding area, with light dishes and vegetarian menus, as well as options without lactose or gluten provided on request. Healthy and genuine, the restaurant proposes meat and fish specialities for lunch and dinner, as well as fresh pasta dishes, a salad buffet, typical cheeses, local specialities, and homemade desserts, all accompanied by a selection of around 300 selected wines. The hotel also has a Cocktail Bar, with large windows and a terrace that offer panoramic views of the mountains, while a pianist completes the atmosphere.
The hotel’s facilities and services include:
The town of Ortisei is an ideal destination for a holiday surrounded by unspoilt natural beauty all year round. During the summer, the Gardena Valley and the Alpe di Siusi offer a vast network of trails for hiking and mountain biking, while in the winter the hotel provides an ideal base for ski holidays at the Dolomiti Superski resort, with 450 ski lifts and 1220 km of slopes. The region offers much more that sport and nature: the territory is animated all year round by seasonal events and festivals, some of which are held in Ortisei, where it is also worth visiting the local Museum of Ladin Culture that remembers local traditions from ancient times, the Parochial Church and the Church of San Giacomo, the oldest in the valley and which can only be reached on foot on its perch above the town. The history and culture of the Ladin valleys are also documented in the Museo Ladino Ciastel de Tor/Val Badia, in San Martino in Badia, while other cultural attractions include the Archaeological Museum of Bolzano, home of the mummy of Otzi, the so-called iceman, who lived in the Copper Age around 5300 years ago, or the five structures that comprise the Messner Mountain Museum, in five different locations in the Alps.
