Description

With a fabulous location close to the slopes in the heart of the Dolomites, this family-run hotel is a superb choice for foodies and families, with its Michelin-starred restaurant and easy access to the slopes.

Situated just a stone's throw from the pretty town of San Cassiano, the Ciasa Salares Hotel offers an all-encompassing experience for anyone looking to immerse themselves in everything that the Alta Badia region has to offer. The lifts to the slopes are a couple of minutes' walk away, taking you directly in the vast and breathtakingly beautiful ski area - the Dolomites are an UNESCO World Heritage site. Run by the same family since the 1960s, warmth and welcoming hospitality are in no short supply and guests are looked after perfectly. And if all this isn't enough, then the food here and in the mountains makes this area and in particular this hotel, well worth a visit.

Built in a traditional chalet style, the Ciasa Salares is a charming, spacious and comfortable hotel. Bedrooms are bright and cosy, and many of them have a balcony giving wonderful views of the Dolomite peaks. Guests here experience the most unbelievable cuisine. Breakfasts are hearty and substantial - perfect for a day's skiing, and the lunches on the sunny terrace of La Terrazza are delicious. The choice of restaurants is exceptional giving the size of the hotel itself. La Siriola, the hotel's restaurant with two Michelin stars, serves sophisticated dishes using locally foraged food, and the accompanying wine list could keep you busy for months.

Indeed food and drink are taken so seriously here, that each week guests are invited to the wine cellar to sample delicious products, 1,600 different labels at the last count, with a special emphasis on what South Tyrol has to offer. Ciasa Salares has its own Cheese Room, with no less than 70 different cheeses, and a member of the hotel's Cheese Team will expertly guide you through the varieties. And guests simply have to visit the Chocolate Room. Part of La Siriola, this room houses 40 sorts of fine chocolate, for tasting and buying, from fig covered chocolate to 100% dark chocolate. Fresh fruit skewers can be dipped into pure Venezuelan chocolate from the room's own fountain. You'll need to ski quite hard to work it all off.

The Dolomites are situated in the Southern Alps in the north of Italy. The ski domain is known as the Dolomiti Superski and consists of 460 lifts and 760 miles of ski runs. The area consists of 12 valleys all accessible under one ski pass and there is enough different terrain to suit all levels of skier.

Reavley Family - August 2017 (Guest)

Ciara Salaries is a great hotel - it's a family run hotel and it shows - excellent attention to detail. Nothing was too much
trouble. Very friendly staff. The couple who originally opened the hotel, now in their eighties I guess, are still involved,
chatting to guests. We were made to feel very welcome.  The food was excellent - we ended up eating there every evening (4 course meal) and we were not disappointed. Even the canaps served with our drinks were amazing!

We had a fondue and a wine tasting in the hotel's huge wine cellar hosted by Jan Clemens, grandson of the original
hoteliers, who demonstrated his great passion and enthusiasm for wine! They were both excellent and good value for
money. There was also a complimentary picnic up in the mountains - more delicious food and wine!

Bee Haywood (Staff)

Really easy to get to with a 2 hour fly to Innsbruck then just a 1.5 hour transfer, its very do-able for a long weekend or with little ones in tow.

The hotel is charming, with friendly staff and a lovely welcoming atmosphere. There are just 50 bedrooms so the whole experience is very personal. The dcor is traditional Alpine and theres a swimming pool and spa. Its all so easy, the hire shop is just across the road and theres a shuttle bus that runs you into the village. But the focus is really the stunning food. There are five restaurants to choose from. La Siriola being the one with the most hype and a Michelin star. The food is fabulous, with a big emphasis on sourcing local produce. The wines arent too shabby either with a wine list famous throughout ltaly. The wines are matched to the dishes (or simply enjoyed by the fire as you discuss the days events). The waiters are knowledgeable and are particularly proud of the biodynamic wines. The chocolate room is fun and adds a bit of theater with a chocolate fountain and shelves of every possible flavored chocolate you can think of. Cantina Sirola, the restaurant set down in the wine cellar, has walls completely lined with thousands of bottles of wine. And guests enjoying spoiling wine, cold meats and cheeses (from the cheese room and cold meats room that are both housed down in the cellar). Theres also Ristorante Salares for classic and international cuisine in the evening and then the relaxed Wine Bar Siriola (theres an adjacent Smorting room for smoking and flirting!) and the final option, Ristorante La Terrazza, is for lunch or a snack on the sunny terrace.
