Gran Baita Sport & Wellness Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 May 2014

My partner and I stayed in this hotel last year and have since traveled quite a bit around the world. Every time we have been away we compare the hotel we stay in to the Gran Baita. For a walking holiday this hotel is hard to beat. Yes it is a little pricey but we felt it was very good value in the end. The five course meals are - well I have no words - each night for our week was a gastronomic delight. Breakfast was beyond belief as well with so much choice every morning.

Rooms were clean and the spa and pool centre just wonderful at the end of a hard days hiking.

The rooms are spacious and for our walking holiday the location very central in some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The staff of the hotel make every effort to make you feel at home and at the end of the week we found ourselves wanting to stay just that little bit longer. We went with Crystal and felt the whole holiday was very good value for money.

We intend to go back a some stage when we have explored a little more of the Dolomites.

We visited Val Gardena end of march-beginning of april , and we were very lucky with the weather.
There was enough snow , the sun was shining , the slops were perfect prepared,all lifts working,
not many tourists ,perfect skiing conditions in the morning everywhere and in the afternoon only on the slops in the shadow. For hiking , the situation was different,as the walking path was almost everywhere not taking care of ,so there were areas with high,soft snow making walking very difficult. Regarding the hotel , I only have few remarks :
-the receptionist gave us total wrong informations about Sella Ronda slops and how to get there.
-the wardrobe has mainly this cheap cloth hangers that you get for free when buying clothes, or when taking them to the cleaning !!!!?????
-the food ,was good ,especially the italian buffet evening, but every day we had shrimps on the menu. I wonder what shrimps have to do with a mountain resort (except that they are cheap).
-the desire to save costs is everywhere :the little carpets in front of the bed , the toiletry ,the cloth hangers, even though the price of the hotel is high enough !
But, all in one ,it was a good holiday ,in a beautiful area . The personal was very professional,
except the young receptionist ,but she can only get better . There was the end of a long season, I can only imagine how tired everybody was , but they did not, in any form let us see that . I understand the comfort comes with a price, but who is willing to pay the price , does not want to see the hotels saving costs measures.

Room Tip: Our room was over the entrance . During the sunny days you would hear all people discussing in front...

Probably the best ski resort hotel I've ever stayed in. Great facilities, staff, atmosphere. The food is fantastic and being able to substitute anything from the a la carte menu if the set dinner is not to your liking is quite exceptional.
Wine list is extensive and pretty good value- lots of advice on local stuff and more if needed.
Loved the indoor/outdoor pool, but the naked sauna with picture window visible from the terrace bar is a little surreal! It did give is some good conversation though.

My second visit to this charming & friendly hotel. Many of the staff remembered me from last year with Marco anticipating my choice of cocktail or beer almost the moment I set foot in the bar. Lovely clean spacious rooms. Fabulous spa & pool facilities. The food is astoundingly good and they take great care in getting everything "just so". Extensive wine list showing off local wines as well as some of Italy's best known. If I had a small complaint, I would ask the hotel to improve their wifi. The signal is only accessible in parts of the lobby and bar and often drops out completely. You cannot access wifi in the bedrooms
The village is really pretty and although the hotel is little off the main road, they run a minibus shuttle service to the lifts. The skiing is extensive and caters for most levels although I think it might be difficult for beginners to navigate.
We had a couple of issues with boots that got mistakenly swapped during transport and a back pack that one of my party left in a mountain restaurant. The hotel sorted out both of these problems (not of their making) efficiently, effectively and with a smile. Some of the staff members seemed to be there both early morning and late night and always keen to please.

Last year, we enjoyed our stay at Selva so much that we decided to come back. We didn't think twice about the hotel we were going to stay in. Gran Baita is such a great place that you are really looking forward to getting there again, perhaps as much as you want to put on your skis and do the famous Sellaronda... Everything we loved last year is intact : comfortable rooms, a cosy bar, live music almost every evening, a top notch restaurant, smiling people. The list could go on and on. Special thanks to Benjamin, the sommelier who knows his stuff, Marco the cocktail master and Dolores the nicest waitress I have ever met.

Five of us spent a luxurious seven days at the Gran Baita last week and had just a perfect ski holiday. The rooms are delightful, the food excellent, the staff lovely the facilities superb.
What can be better that a long day on the piste of Val Gardena and returning to a relaxing snooze by the pool, a swim in the pool and, for the younger members of the family, swimming through the doors into the warm outside pool - and jumping out and rolling in the snow. This is a ski in ski out sort of place, a short walk to the slope - but the ever present hotel bus zips you to the more central lifts at the drop of a hat.

Room Tip: We had a spacious junior suite - the children's rooms were lovely too.

So pleased with our first stay two years back we took the dangerous decision for the first time ever to go back to a ski hotel and risk disappointment!
Food of outstanding quality and if you don't fancy the daily menu choice, eat from the extensive a la carte menu at no extra charge!Leisure facilities and spa for everyones taste. Our room (Junior suite) spacious and very well appointed.On demand Shuttle service to lifts and ski back to within 200 meters.So disappointed we'd not discovered the Dolomites earlier in our skiing history. Beautiful mountains with snow guaranteed, no queues, and wonderful mountain restaurants at sensible prices.(don't tell anyone of the secret).
The best feature of the Hotel ? The staff to a man/women wanted only to please and always with a smile.
We'll be back again

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.
