We have been there in summer with our 3 boys in July 2012 on hiking holidays and we loved it so much we immediately booked the Xmas skiing holidays too.
The owners make you feel special from the moment you arrive. The hotel is very romantic, with typical southern Tyrol architecture but also really modern and classy. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, bathrooms were newly modernized when we came in winter. They are always spotless clean.
We ate in the restaurant every night and I have to worn you - you really have to exercise every day because the food is simply irresistible and we always had too much! :-)
We love this place, the hospitality and the beauty of the region. In winter you can ski directly from the door of the hotel, no driving and parking hassle!
When you are lucky you can sit next to a Formula 1 champion in the restaurant as they seem to also like the hotel... :-)
Simply a dream!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Exclusive Spa Hotel Granvara in the Dolomites... Room to free your soul, for wellbeing and imagination. Room for the simple things in life and the highest standards of individuality. Welcome to the Granvara on this sunny Val Gardena plateau! Our inviting "home from home" comfort reflects the elegance and exclusivity of the Granvara Spa & Relais Hotel in Wolkenstein. Four-star s luxury coupled with five-star privacy: at the Granvara wellness hotel you'll enjoy individual attention well away from the world at large. A place of tranquillity and energy in a 15,000 metre square private garden and park with a unique 360º view of the South Tyrolean Dolomites, a UNESCO world natural heritage site. The Relais & Spa Hotel Granvara didn't get itsname by accident: "Granvara" comes from the Ladin and means "great wide meadow". For as far as the eye can see, the striking Dolomite mountains of Langkofel, Schlern, Seceda, Cuca, Stevia, Chedul, Cir and Sella surround you. The corresponding peace and feeling of security are guaranteed by the hotel's philosophy: the Relais du Silence philosophy. In the wellness and spa complex on Val Gardena's sun terrace, the hotel's own Dolomite spring and the use of natural sources of energy help guests to experience the gentlest rest and recuperation. Our head chef, Michael, and his team invite you on a very special gourmet journey, Italian specialities combined with traditional South Tyrolean fare. The unique position of Val Gardena's 4-star s hotel, surrounded by greenery and yet directly linked to the popular Sella Ronda, means that in winter you are guaranteed to be able to "ski in and ski out" at the Spa Hotel Granvara. ... more less
