Pinzolo, the area connected to Madonna di Campiglio and all the Skirama Dolomiti (the massive carousel of resorts to the West of the Brennero Road that goes from Verona to Innsbruck in the Trentino Province), has opened its first five stars luxury hotel, the Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti.
This ‘jewel of luxury’ is the second of the Lefay Resorts, after the Lefay Resort & Spa at Lake Garda in Gargagno opened in 2008. The resort is centered on the theme of wellness and sustainability in a luxury setting. Even though the largest region of Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo and Val Rendena, with the Adamello Presanella group and the Brenta Dolomites has already four of the six 5-star hotels in the Trentino province, this hotel is the first one to earn the five-star luxury classification.
The star of this hotel is the Lefay Spa Dolomiti, with over 5,000 sq meters over four floors, making of it one of the largest spas in the Alps with a wellness area for families – with indoor and outdoor heated pools, a ‘family sauna’, the Mondo Acqua e Fuoco (world of water and fire) for adults with an indoor lap pool, a big hydromassage and nine saunas; a 24- hour fitness center that overlooks the gardens, and an entire floor dedicated to massages and beauty treatments.
The hotel has 88 suites and 22 residences that allow the landscape into the hotel with wide-open spaces, natural fabrics and local stone, wood and locally sourced materials.
There are four type of suites – the Prestige & Deluxe Junior Suites of 57 sq meters, the Family Suites of 92 sq meters, the Exclusive Spa Suites of 100 square meters and the Royal Pool & Spa Suites of up to 430 square meters.
The Hotel has two restaurants, the Dolomia and Grual, inspired by the surrounding territory, with local flavors and the best of what the Mediterranean diet has to offer.
Dolomia is opened for breakfast, lunch and à la carte dinner and offers local fare depending the season.
Grual, named after the mountain that is behind the resort, focuses on ethical cuisine and the selection of quality ingredients. Grual will open in December for dinner service only.
The resort also has a welcoming lounge bar, an outdoor Sky Lounge, a cigar lounge, 24-hour room service and a reading room.
This hotel uses wood, stone and simplicity in details. It is a certified ClimaHotel, designed to reduce energy needs through high levels of insulation and the use of renewable energy by way of high-performance systems such as the biomass heating system and a co-generation system. This resort is following the steps of its sister resort, the Lefay Resort & Spa Lake Garda, which has been offsetting 100% of its CO2 emissions for five years in a row.
This resort is owned by the Leali family, who were in the steel industry until 1989, then founded the Air Dolomiti airline, which they sold to Lufthansa after fourteen years, and then they decided to develop the Lefay Resorts- focusing on luxury locations, low environmental impact and a cutting-edge wellness offering.
