As others have said, this is a fine, well run hotel. The room (a junior suite) was spacious and comfortable and, particularly important, was quiet and dark at night. The spa is outstanding. The salt water pool (you float as in the Dead Sea, and drift under a mirrored ceiling) was a wonderful experience.
We enjoyed the local wines. The only downside is that you need to use the shuttle bus to get to and from the slopes. This normally only involves a wait of a few minutes, but on one occasion we had to chase them up to collect us.
We would have like to have seen more of the family, although we cannot fault the professionalism of the staff.
In winter the hotel has an arrangement with the ski school for guests to go on a tour with a guide. This is not exclusive to the hotel, so you will mix with skiers from other hotels. The tour is daily. We left it right to the last day to go on a tour, which turned out to be excellent, so we regretted not having done this more often in our week.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Innovation in harmony with nature - that's the goal at the Gran Baita Sport & Wellness Hotel****s. We've put a lot of effort and thought into creating the special atmosphere at the leading mountain resort hotel in Wolkenstein in Groden / Selva di Val Gardena. Situated in the village center, but with an extensive park-like garden, the Sport Hotel Gran Baita invites you to enjoy the legendary panoramic view of the Dolomites (which UNESCO has declared to be a World Heritage Site). Mild mountain air together with a wide range of wellness activities, sports, and culinary specialties - it's an experience for all the senses! The wellness facilities at the Gran Baita allow you to experience a new dimension of spaciousness and comfort, of warmth, light, and water. Throughout our hotel complex, you'll encounter a casual atmosphere characterized by unobtrusive luxury and harmonious design. And the philosophy of our 4-Star Superior Hotel is based upon carefully prepared culinary specialties and a truly remarkable assortment of wines. The Gran Baita in Wolkenstein / Selva was constructed in the early 1960s by the parents of Carmen Puntscher. It's a family-operated hotel where we've devoted a lot of attention to the smallest details. We and our team are looking forward to providing you with a maximum of comfort and service so that you can enjoy the best vacation of your life. Yours truly, The Puntscher Perathoner Family ... more less
