Within the lush valley of Val Gardena lies ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI. Suitable for the whole family, this five-star resort is inspired by its surroundings, and offers an extraordinary opportunity to both adventure and unwind in nature, while discovering the Alpine traditions of South Tyrol.


Whatever the season, slow down completely and embrace a more holistic holiday, with the resort’s unique wellness centre, which offers a haven of outdoor pools, whirlpools, salt grottoes, and saunas. Experience purifying and wellbeing treatments, as well as gourmet and nutritious cuisine, and daily activities for every fitness level.


ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI is the oldest property of the ADLER group and continues to be managed by the seventh generation of the Sanoner family, who reside in the nearby pedestrianized Alpine village of Ortisei, teeming with pastel-coloured houses and chalets.




This enchanting mountain resort has been a well-kept secret for discerning Italian holidaymakers for decades but is now receiving the limelight from further afield. Easy to reach, there are rail connections from Milan, Venice and Munich, while Innsbruck and Verona are the nearest international airports, less than a two hour’s drive away.

SPA & WELLBEING


Enter into a complete oasis of calm. The spa is the absolute soul of ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI.


Adler’s pièce de résistance is its 3,500 square metres AGUANA Water World, comprising several indoor and outdoor heated and unheated swimming pools, a salt grotto, saunas, Turkish baths, whirlpool with a crystal pyramid, and plenty of relaxation space that’s flooded with natural light.


Splash into a warm saltwater lake that stimulates your circulation, rejuvenate in the cedar sauna where you can breathe in the serenity of nature with views of the Dolomites, or breathe easy in the flower steam bath, set in a rock grotto. You’re spoiled for choice.


The Lakeside Sauna, situated right by the lake, offers an organic hay sauna where the scent of dried grasses helps stimulate your metabolism.


There are plenty of spa therapies to indulge in that utilize nature’s wisdom, such as Alpine baths with local hay and pine needles, essential oils of fir tree, stone pine, mountain pine and juniper, and rasul clay baths. Many of the treatments also use the resort’s own natural skincare products.



A more unusual ritual at ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI, is the Aufguss, a sauna ritual that lasts around 10 minutes with hand-picked essential oils and music.


Should you wish for a more comprehensive health experience, you can head to the neighbouring ADLER Spa Resort BALANCE, which includes medical treatments for every season, such as detox, weight loss and nutrition, stress management, prevention and diagnosis and aesthetic medicine.


There’s also a new respiratory therapy that helps promote stress management and weight loss, and a relaxing women’s-only area, fragranced by the aroma of delicate rose.


A TASTE OF THE DOLOMITI


Tuck into inspired meals that showcase the Tyrolean and the Mediterranean at the hands of ADLER Spa Resort DOLOMITI’s talented head chef, Martino Longo.

Breakfast is a lavish affair that can easily take you through to evening, with delicious diced and puréed fruits, Tyrolean yoghurt-soaked mueslis, pastries, charcuterie, cheese, smoked fish, and a juice bar, as well as live cooking stations where you can watch your morning pancakes, eggs, or meat being prepared.



Dinner is similarly extravagant, with five or six course meals, including buffet-style starters and desserts, and an à la carte menu.


The gourmet dishes are always varied and wholesome, natural, creative, and reflect the changing of the seasons. You can complete your meal with a bottle from the wine cellar, which showcases local producers from South Tyrol and Italy, as well as international wineries.
