We are all part of Nature whom we personify calling Mother Nature, and we need her just as we need the air we breathe. Consequently, the philosophy of the Alpina Dolomites is based on a close relationship with nature, or perhaps it would be better to say it is based on a sense of belonging, on attention and respect for the environment which feeds us, on the appreciation for the beauty of all that surrounds us.
The ecological concept expressed in the Alpina Dolomites reflects the Bernardi family’s aims: to do everything possible so that their guests may live in harmony with nature, the nature they live in, love and respect.
Cinzia and Hugo Bernardi say:
"We believe that ancient traditions should be rediscovered and conveyed with love in all areas: in the hotel, spa, cuisine and sport."
Rooms & Suites
An exclusive location in an extraordinary position on the Alpe di Siusi, surrounded by the magnificent Dolomites. At the Alpina Dolomites Gardena Health Lodge & SPA the harmony is literally everywhere. The breathtakingly stunning views are an integral part of this hotel.
Nature takes center stage and the interiors have a fundamental supporting role with their natural colours, a warm brown being used throughout. Lamps, fabrics, colours, materials, like the superb mix of ancient wood from disused barns with young, elegant woods. The Alpina Dolomites features chromatic shades that blend together to create a superb ensemble that embraces all: beds, baths, lighting, fabrics.
bar & restaurants
The 56 rooms and suites have been created according to the highest ecological, sustainable standards with architectural design which has drawn inspiration from the forms to be found in the natural environment so as to favor harmony and wellbeing.
First and foremost the interiors feature the element of space in both rooms and suites where the smallest measures 50sqm. Clean lines and natural materials abound: old wood, darkened by the sun, natural brushed oak. Spacious living with natural materials to dream, relax and feel utterly at ease.
The dining room has a main characteristic: the breathtaking view, ever present both during the day and at night. The view looks over the nearby Sciliar, over to the Denti di Terrarossa, the Sassolungo group of peaks, the ski slopes or meadows, depending on the season, of the largest plateau in Europe.
The dining room itself is spacious and airy and once again there is a prevalence of natural materials: wood and natural black iron that has been hot-dip galvanized. There are also three original Stuben in the hotel: two are 17th century and the third is a 14th century Gothic one. Guests may enjoy their meals in a very special atmosphere, with soft lighting, cozy warmth and a fine welcome.
Superb cuisine and natural ingredients
As the philosophy of responsibility towards nature might suggest, there is a preference for local and regional products at the Alpina Dolomites as these are not just more ecological but also fresher and healthier. So we can say in all sincerity that the finest of ingredients are used to achieve the amazing dishes served, all inspired by Mediterranean, regional and international traditions. A healthy diet is the best way to stay healthy longer, and greater health means greater enjoyment of life. We all accept this responsibility most willingly here! The immense selection of wines and the fine service are also a perfect complement to the ultimate in quality of the cuisine.
Healthy tasty cuisine generates wellness
The Alpina SPA Restaurant is also in line with the philosophy of the establishment. Menus are perfectly balanced and the recipes are based on genuinely healthy ingredients. All the dishes are conceived of as a holistic form of prevention which will benefit regeneration of the body.
The Mountain Lounge & Bar is a smart, welcoming place which encourages conviviality and relaxation in a wonderfully chilled-out atmosphere.
Wellbeing for body and soul. The philosophy here is all embracing, both body and mind. Gabi Bernardi is the wellbeing and cosmetic professional who has put all her expertise and care into a global concept of wellbeing that is also a lifestyle unto itself.
The Alpina SPA is entirely dedicated to improving health and boosting immunity and vital energy, with a range of pleasant and healthy suggestions to achieve it. In the pool areas too, the views take a leading role and you have the sensation of literally swimming toward the Sciliar.
The SPA focuses on overall wellbeing. New holistic treatments, personalized health and wellbeing programs over a period of several days, cosmetic products of the finest quality and relaxing beauty treatments whose benefits will also be felt over the course of time and when back home again. A whole world of waters, steam and aromas, wrapped in natural materials and surrounded by the wonderful Alpine scenery, this is a unique sensory experience of wellbeing the like of which is hard to find.
Every person working in the hotel is aware of being an integral part of an ambitious project and philosophy, from the kitchen staff to the guides, the ski instructors and yoga trainers, beauticians, masseuses and those who put the final touch to the wellness program, the service staff.
The Alpina Dolomites offers a complete program for overall relaxation: classic Finnish sauna, herbal biosauna saline or aromatic steam bath for deep cleaning, relaxation area with water beds and loungers all with unbeatable views.
