What is a sanctuary? It’s a space that feels safe, spiritual, calm and separate from the world around. It’s somewhere you can go and immediately feel cared for, somewhere stresses and concerns aren’t solved; they just float away on the wind.High above the Alpine town of Brixen, nestled amongst the pines is such a place – the uber-stylish hyper-luxurious Forestis Dolomites, a sanctuary par excellence. With a minimalist design and so many floor-to-ceiling windows, it's like you're floating on air. The mountain light and the vistas stream in from every possible angle, dissolving all worries and lifting all moods.
Surrounded by lush forests on the southern slope of Plose Mountain, 1,800m above sea level and close to the Alpine town of Brixen. Approximately 2 hours drive to the closest airport at Innsbruck.
16 suites and rooms in the heritage-listed main building, plus 44 stunning suites in three stylish wooden towers connected to the hotel by an underground tunnel. Expect floor-to-ceiling glass and jaw-dropping mountain views as standard. For the best-of-the-already-brilliant opt for one of the two penthouse suites which have private rooftop pools and saunas.
Who is it for
Couples looking for the best combination of ski, spa and cuisine the Italian Alps have to offer. All wrapped up in stunning minimalist design. For some, the no-kids allowed policy may be the best news ever.
