The conscious green choices of the Dolomiti Wellness Hotel Fanes offer an experience of eco-friendly relaxation.
Alpine tradition, Ladin heart, family warmth. These three keywords can comprehensively describe the Dolomiti Wellness Hotel Fanes, located in the picturesque setting of San Cassiano, in Alta Badia, boasting a centuries-old history of hospitality.
The particular atmosphere of this structure is above all given by the position: it rises, in fact, on one of the sunniest and most panoramic terraces of the Dolomites, standing out like a stage on the amphitheatre of the mountains, almost dominating the small hamlet from above.
The current building, in stone and wood, stems from a farm dating back to 1560. It boasts largely original interiors of the time, some elements with a modern flavour have been added, and the result is a balanced mix of alpine style and high-class luxury.
Inside, as well as outside, the hotel has the charm of the abodes of yesteryear, imbued with that personal, genuine and discreet atmosphere, equipped with well-kept rooms where wood dominates. A hotel to keep in mind if you want to regenerate while on holiday, satisfying all five senses…
With the amazing surrounding view of the snow-capped peaks, the scent of pine – which reconciles sleep -, the singing of birds at the edge of the forest, the enveloping character of the brand-new wellness area with the Cocoon suites, created by the interior designer Barbara Widmann from Bolzano. And then, the pleasure to the palate of a gourmet restaurant.
All crowned by the quality standards of a five-star hotel.
From the reception to the shared areas, from the relaxation area to the suites, each space meets the obsequious aesthetic standards of the Alpine style, where plainness is elevated to the comfort and pleasure of staying.
The owners have enlarged the formula of exclusive hospitality by building nearby chalets based on concepts of regional sustainability which, translated into practice, involve the use of local South Tyrolean resources, starting with the creativity of the local artisans expressed in the passion for details, up to the use of natural materials from the Dolomites.
In these mountains, considered a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, the Dolomiti Wellness Hotel Fanes offers first-class quality with customized services, in the form of a private heliport as well.
