Hotel Hubertus: Alpin Panorama
There is a reason the Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The view at elevation in this mountain range is a breathtaking experience. If you want to spoil yourself with an exclusive panoramic view, there is no better place than Hotel Hubertus in the North of Italy. The hotel’s roof terrace is the largest in the area. The magical atmosphere is exponentially enhanced by the hotel’s Alpenreych Spa, featuring 6 indoor and outdoor pools, saunas and steam baths set within a 5,000 square metre alpine park. Woah. I got breathless just typing that.
Every single room in the establishment features a balcony with a view on the valley. When checking in, guests receive a wellness basket with bathrobe and slippers. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with an emphasis on wood and earth tones. The bathtubs in the rooms also offer a panoramic view. Every element of the hotel is perfectly integrated into its scenery in order to prioritize this view. They understand that this is why their guests are here. And with thoughtful touches like a daily chocolate on your pillow, the hospitality is unrivalled by any other hotel.
The dining is a true farm-to-table experience with all the dairy coming from livestock in the area, homemade jam and organic produce.
The hotel is an ideal starting point for hikes and tours all year round. In the summer, there is a free bike rental service is available from reception. You can use it to visit Lago di Braies for a swim or to go hiking in Tre Cime. In the winter you can hop aboard a free shuttle to hit the Plan Corones slopes.
The piece de resistance? There is a heated “sky” infinity pool at the property’s highest point, with a glass bottom. A glass bottom! You can relax in the pool while looking down at the dolomites. This experience is unmissable at sunrise when the mountain peaks are wrapped in fog and warm colours spread across the sky.
