The Gardena Grödnerhof Hotel has been run by the Bernardi family for over eighty years, and guests here are guaranteed a genuine and exceptionally warm welcome - something that the South Tyrol is famous for. The first five star hotel in Ortisei, it soon after became a member of Relais & Châteaux and is deservedly renowned for its hospitality, superb food and an incredible Spa. All within 200m of the cable car.
The hotel, with its typical Tyrolean architecture, stands prominently in large gardens underneath the jagged peaks of the surrounding Dolomites. Ortisei is the largest village in Val Gardena, and from here, skiers can explore the Sella Ronda circuit and the vast Dolomiti Superski, and marvel at the incredible scenery that has given this area UNESCO World Heritage status. Its traditional but modern architecture on the outside is home to an elegant and sophisticatedly styled interior. Elegant rooms and suites are spacious and luxuriously furnished, each one has a balcony overlooking the gardens or the village with the mountains beyond.
South Tyrol is renowned throughout Italy and beyond for its innovative cuisine, with a fusion of Alpine and Mediterranean influences. Dining at the Gardena Grödnerhof Hotel lives up to this tradition, and its Anna Stuben has a Michelin star to prove it. Food is paired immaculately with wines by the hotel’s sommelier, making eating here a memorable experience. And you’ll be no less impressed in the main restaurant.
Some guests come here just for the Spa alone, and we highly recommend a treatment. The vast spa facilities include, a stunning swimming pool, Turkish baths, Finnish saunas, hay baths and Ayurvedic massages, the list is extensive and indulgent.
