Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site hotel to open in 2014

by Helen Andrews | 11 Apr 2014

Mountain Lodge, Adler Resorts’ fourth hotel, is set to open on 3 July this year in the heart of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site after more than 10 years of planning.

Located way up in the Italian mountains – at a height of 1,800m – the hotel’s main lodge top-floor spa comprises three treatment rooms, a sauna, relaxation area and a wrap-around infinity pool with panoramic views of the Alpine landscape.

Both skin care treatments and food served at the Mountain Lodge will reflect the specialities of the South Tyrol region.

The owners of Adler Resorts, the Sanoner family, bought an existing property on the site in 1999 called Hotel Mezdi. Dating back to 1938, the hotel was built three years after one of the Dolomites’ first cable cars started carrying visitors from the mountain resort of Ortisei up to Alpe di Siusi.

Adler Resorts pulled down this existing hotel, which was in a state of disrepair, and replaced it with a central wooden lodge and an arc of 12 small, south-facing chalets.

Local architects Hugo & Hanspeter Demetz and Rudi Perathoner, from Selva interior designers and furniture makers, created the 30-bedroom hotel comprising 16 junior suites and two family suites in the main building, eight chalets and four family chalets.

The Mountain Lodge will be Adler Resorts’ fourth Italian property owned and managed by the Sanoner family, whose first property was purchased in 1890 – a small tavern renamed the Adler Dolomiti – and managed by the seventh generation of the Sanoner family. There are two other hotels in the collection currently: Adler Balance – also in the Dolomites – and the Adler Thermae in Tuscany.
