The Fanes is a fantastic family friendly hotel with superb facilities. Upon entering the hotel, you will find the spacious sunken lounge and bar area, perfect for an aperitif! The spa is large with an indoor and outdoor pool, making it great for kids. Theres a supervised kids club too in the afternoon, with windows all around facing the mountains.
What I really like about the Fanes is the wide range of rooms available, meaning it suits both couples, and families alike. For the ultimate in luxury, go for the Natura Loft - its open plan with a Finnish sauna, free standing bath and a very cool fireplace. The chalets are great for families too.

What a truly lovely hotel! Amazing spa and wellness area and I don't really do spas! Fantastic attitude from staff towards us as a family, so friendly and relaxed. Food was superb and shuttle bus service was faultless. Great resort too.

The Fanes has a wonderful location perched above the lovely village of San Cassiano and exudes such a friendly welcome from the moment you walk through the door. The fact that it has its own children's club makes it ideal for families but its the range of accommodation that really wows. The 'chalets' in the grounds are fantastic - more contemporary in style with wonderful views. One of them even has a shoe-shaped bathtub!
