Magic in the mountains, the soul’s paradise,
absolutely superb

Travel website Tripadvisor users wax poetic in their praises of the new all-wood and glass Adler Mountain Lodge in Italy – already ranked the Number One hotel in the Alpe Di Siusi region despite opening only last July.

There is indeed a lot to love about this nature hideaway, including 18 stylish suites and 12 charming Tyrolean-style, all-wood chalets equipped with saunas.

Yet the real draw lies outside the hotel: the magnificent Dolomites mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site, greets visitors just across from Europe’s largest Alpine meadow. When not hiking along the 350 kilometres of marked trails, visitors can admire the Dolomites from their private terraces, through full-wall windows or from the heated outdoor pool.

Due to Alpe Di Siusi being a national park, it took 15 years for the Sanoner family to craft a lodge that was perfectly “embedded in nature,” offering “uncomplicated luxury,” explains the manager Sara Vinatzer.

“The Adler Mountain Lodge is a hideaway for dreamers,” she adds.

Chalets start from €363 in January (for two to three people).
