In full respect of the natural elements, the hotel has been refurbished and extended over the years and since summer 2010 has been offering even greater comfort and hospitality as the rooms have been renewed.
Ilda and Paoli are the pillars of this Ciasa or in dialect, house, both children of hoteliers who have handed down the tradition to their own three children Stefan, Robert e Monica. Ciasa Salares being family run means there is greater attention for the quality of their services, ensuring time and again their affectionate guests all their finest care and a superb welcome. Passionate enthusiasm, incessant research and belief in their profession are the driving forces behind the daily work and effort of this extraordinary family. Each new beginning brings energy and enthusiasm as each new summer and winter season brings something new to surprise their guests with.
Style to warm the heart
The feeling of wellbeing that overcomes you in each and every corner of the rooms is born of the choice of natural materials which breathe and develop in time. There has been a great deal of research carried out regarding the woods used, as a kind of uniformity was sought among, pine, fir and larch, choosing special hand craft heat finishes so as to avoid all use of paint and varnish.
The fabrics, carpets and pictures follow this harmony with the boiserie or woodwork and paneling. The magnificent scenery the chalet is set in enters through the large picture windows, a great natural landscape which acts as a backdrop. All the furnishings have been studied and designed exclusively for the hotel and built by local artisans who worked closely and constantly with the owners to create this wonderful place.
To ensure deep sleep and sweet dreams special beds, mattresses and pillows have been selected for the ultimate in quality. A moderate mix of contemporary and traditional with warm colors and richly hand crafted cacessories make for an evolution of style which is simply heartwarming. Balconies or verandas regale views that are without doubt among the most spectacular in the world.
The superb Suite Salares measures 50 square meters and is spacious while the typical pine paneling and exclusive artisanal fabrics make the atmosphere even more unique, with the fragrant aroma of the local wood together and the unspoilt scenery visible from the large balcony.

Savouring lunch or something tempting on one of the sunniest terraces in Alta Badia with its picture postcard scenery transports guest into a state of supreme wellbeing. Many of the dishes are of such a tempting nature that one quite naturally returns to the fun game of sharing. Love of local tradition and lands mean the menu is Ladino in style with four specialties grouped together that are part of Alpine culinary habits lo speck, the only cured meat and a fine point of pride with locals, served with horseradish and the special caraway bread pücia "i cajincì", ravioli filled with spinach and ricotta with melted butter and cheese Pork shin, a dish for special occasions with sauercraut and potatoes, produce of the local countrysideApple fritters, perhaps the only fruit all families can afford, dipped in batter and then fried.
Stefan’s wine cellar
This is a cellar in constant movement, with a surprising turnover of about 350 labels a year. It has been said of the Restaurants at Ciasa Salares that you have to live both “upstairs and downstairs” in the sense that downstairs is far from being out of bounds, as it has always been possible for guests to visit the cellars, enjoy them, but also to admire and experience the amazing atmosphere and surroundings in the “downstairs”. Lines of larch wood on the left of the entrance guide us visually through three rooms lined with 21 thousand bottles and 1850 wines.
On local wood cut following the phases of the moon, entirely in line with the biodynamic philosophy used to vinify many of the products in the cellar, the owners invite their guests to taste the finest of wines from all over the world accompanied by similarly superb food products. “Downstairs” time seems to stop as one goes back over the years through the vintages marked on the bottles, losing all track of today’s reality with a 1928 Recioto by Bertani...
More fun in company When you share a dish it is more fun to eat it and the atmosphere becomes immediately more intimate and convivial. You tend to sit closer together as you enjoy something cooking in the center of the table. Instead of concentrating on one’s own plate, each diner shares the “caquelon” with the others . This is the traditional way to enjoy the ritual of the fondue chinoise
