“Active and Indulgent”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed in Gran Baita late June/early July, just before the hay meadows were cut and the wild flowers were in full bloom. This holiday ticked every box. The hotel is wonderful, with courteous staff, and fabulous food. The indoor pool opens to an outdoor area, and I enjoyed the poolside steam room. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a small balcony.The SPA is a hidden world of wonders. Try the salt therapy pool, or treat yourself to a massage with heady scented oils. We borrowed the hotel mountain bikes, and signed up for the historical walks and activities laid on by the local town tourist office. Try the 'easy' mountain bike trip for yourself. It starts with a beautiful if somewhat bumpy ride through the woods to a cable car which whisks you up to heady heights. Our guide asked if any of us were suffering from altitude sickness - I said I thought it was just my age. Any excuse for being last haha. Walking in the mountains was also delightful, with cattle on the slopes wearing collars with bells, and you may spot a marmot on the high slopes. For those who like a little night life the hotel laid on entertainment one evening, there were a couple of events at the town hall. I particularly enjoyed the Tyrolean night. Walking into Selva after dinner for a coffee or hot chocolate at Cafe Mozart is also recommended.

We stayed in Gran Baita with all the family, usually it's quite difficult to make all things right when there are so many people, but the Gran Baita staff was perfect. We enjoyed all the amenities, especially the great restaurant, we never felt the need to go eat anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Booked a walking holiday in Selva Val Gardena which truly is a walkler's paradise. We stayed at the Gran Baita Sport & Wellness Hotel in Selva. In a quiet yet central location, the hotel is truly wonderful, staff are very courteous and helpful. Our room 106 was spaciious, very comfortable and with a balcony view of the spectacular Dolomites what could be better. The restaurant is fantastic with a great variety of beautifully prepared and presented food. Dinners can chose from the set 6/7 course menu or the a la carte menu at no extra cost. The log fires in the lounges give a cosy feel to this terrific hotel. In addition to a great spa there is a heated outdoor pool and beautifully manicured gardens. I would have no hesitation is recommending this charming and elegant hotel. OUR EXPERIENCE - IT MERITS 10/10

We stayed 4 days at the GranBaita Sport & Wellness Hotel in July this year. I travell a lot around the world in my job and privately and I can confirm that the GranBaita really gave me a great experience.

First of all the hotel staff was so friendly and helpfull. Secondly I must point out the great restaurant with nice people and impressive food. I usually never eat in hotel restaurants since I find them booring and without atmosphere, but in this hotel the restaurant was fantastic.

Selva Val Gardena is a very nice village. We usually did some hiking in the mountains until 0200pm and then spent the rest of the day in the sun by the hotel swimmingpool. Great combination :)

We stayed at the Gran Baita in July 2013 for two weeks and had a brilliant walking holiday. The hotel is excellent and the food was beautiful , the 5 course dinners were of a high quality restaurant standard and my favourites were the pasta courses which were original and stunningly presented. There was an amazing choice of food and every taste would be catered for here. Our room was a junior suite very spacious and with a great view of the sella group of mountains. The spa is one of the best I have ever been to and thanks to Barbara in the spa for my lovely treatments do try the salt grotto too. The indoor /outdoor pool is lovely and heated , swimming in the warm water surrounded by the mountains was so restful after a long day walking in the mountains . Selva was stunning as ever still a very pretty village albeit a busy one.

The main compliments must go to the staff here who go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful time , Gigi our head waiter was charming and the sommelier Benjamin was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot from him , and had some lovely wine ! Breakfast was great and the girls were always cheery in the morning especially Ranka and always got our Earl Grey tea just right . Sandro the barman was great and very engaging.

My only niggle and it is a very very small one was that there was tea and coffee making in the room but they never replaced the tea or milk , not a problem as we got tea from downstairs but a bit of a miss for such a high standard hotel.

If you are walking do get the Val Gardena card which gives you access to all the lifts and buses - great value. In summary brilliant and we came home so rested and healthy many many thanks.

We had a wonderful vacation at the Gran Baita last summer. Excellent staff, very good food, beautiful surrondings. We had some great tracking in the mountains, and enjoyed the spa. The hotel is situated in very calm surrondings, but there are shops nearby. We are planning to return next summer.

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.
